Park Chan-wook's Cannes Entry Thirst Continues to Rampage Local Box Office

2009/05/08 Source

The long weekend has proven to be a hit for Chan-wook's highly anticipated "Thirst". Despite mixed reviews, the Korean vampire film, hyped nearly as much as Kim Jee-woon's "The Good, the Bad, the Weird" (2008) did not defy hope becoming the biggest opening for a Korean film this year. Released on the 30th of April on 633 screens it quickly managed to knock bock buster Xmen Wolverine of its commercial perch. Over the weekend, a holiday weekend for many, the film gained 1 million admissions grossing over 6 billion won ($5.36 million)

Thirst's success puts the film in good stead, raising anticipations for its success at Cannes along with Bong Joon-ho's "Mother - 2009". Cannes opens on the 13th of May.
