2010/02/15 Source

Hollywood science fiction blockbuster "Avatar" has come from behind to the second place, outpacing local film, "The King and the Clown".

According to the compilation of ticket sales at cinemas by Korean Film Council via its integrated computer network, the number of cinemagoers from Sunday through early Monday stood at 171,791 across the country to an aggregate 12,426,111, beating "The King and the Clown" which attracted an audience of 12.3 million, which was released on Dec. 29, 2005.

Now, "The Host" is the sole film currently outnumbering the audience of "Avatar" in box office as the local movie directed by Bong Joon-ho attracted 13.01 million in mid-2006.
"Avatar" has continued its boom, bringing in 150,000 spectators on average a day during the Lunar New Year holidays despite its release has entered into ninth week.

The blockbuster, which placed top in the box office for the seventh consecutive week since its release on Dec. 17, get deprived of the post by "Sworn Brothers" ("Secret Reunion") starring Song Kang-ho and Gang Dong-won. However, the popularity of the science fiction has never been ceasing at 3D cinemas and Imax halls.

'아바타', '왕의 남자' 넘고 흥행 2위 등극

할리우드 SF 블록버스터 '아바타'가 '왕의 남자'를 잡고 역대 흥행 2위에 올라섰다.

영화진흥위원회 영화관입장권 통합전산망의 집계 결과에 따르면 '아바타'는 14일부터 15일 아침까지 전국 17만 1791명, 누적관객 1242만 6111명을 모아 박스오피스 3위를 장식, '왕의 남자'(1230만)의 기록을 제치고 역대 흥행 2위를 차지했다.

이제 역대 흥행 기록 순위에서 '아바타' 앞에는 봉준호 감독의 '괴물'(1301만), 단 한 편만이 남아있다.

'아바타'는 개봉 9주째에 접어들었음도 불구, 설 연휴 동안 하루 평균 관객 15만 여명의 관객몰이를 하며 쉽게 식지않는 흥행세를 보여줬다.

작년 12월 17일 개봉 이후 7주 연속 박스오피스 1위에 오른 '아바타'는 지난 주 송강호, 강동원 주연의 '의형제'에게 1위의 자리를 내줬다. 하지만 여전히 3D 상영관과 아이맥스 상영관 등을 중심으로 인기를 누리고 있다.
