New Film Expected to Set Indie Box-Office Record

2015/03/18 | 599 views | Permalink | Source

A recently released indie film appears likely to set a new box-office record after a strong initial response from audiences.

"Socialphobia" was seen by about 112,000 moviegoers in its first three days on the screen, reaching the 100,000 mark faster than any other indie film released here.

Among last year's hit indie films, "My Love, Don't Cross That River" and "The Grand Budapest Hotel" took six days to exceed the mark, while "Han Gong-ju" needed nine days.

As of Sunday, "Socialphobia" had been seen by more than 154,000 people. If it can maintain this pace, it is likely to surpass the record achieved by "Han Gong-ju", which drew 220,000 viewers.

"Socialphobia" revolves around a group of youngsters who investigate the death of a girl who died after being targeted in a witch-hunt on social network services, in an attempt to determine whether it was suicide or murder.
