Korea's "D-War" Targeting Chinese Theaters

2008/05/09 Source

This Sunday, director Shim Hyun-rae's sci-fi flick "D-War" will be opening in theaters across China. There is great interest about whether this movie will be able to break records of past Korean films at box offices in China.

D-War is set to open at 500 theaters in about 100 cities including Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

When D-War was released in Korea, over 7 million people went to see it in theaters; in the United States, the film opened in 2200 theaters, amassing 11 million dollars.

There is speculation that "D-War" may be a greater hit than last year's release of "The Host" in China, which earned about 1.4 billion won at the box office.

Young-Gu Entertainment's assistant director Kim Min-gu announced on the 7th that the release of "D-War" in China is their first step towards entering the Chinese film market. "The public response to the movie in China will also affect the production of the sequel", he added.
