CJ Entertainment's "Deranged" passed 4 million mark in box office admissions
LOS ANGELES, CA (July 23, 2012) – Despite the Korean release of billion dollar blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises on July 19, CJ Entertainment's sci-fi thriller "Deranged" shows little sign of slowing down at the box office. In its 3rd week of release, "Deranged" dropped by a mere 20% decrease in Korean box office admissions from July 18 and made a beeline towards crossing the 4 million total admissions mark this past weekend, the fastest Korean film to do so this year.
"Deranged" is releasing in select movie theaters across the US on July 27 and as a special treat for U.S. fans, CJ Entertainment America's official Facebook page Asian Movies n More has uploaded English versions of the original "Deranged" webtoon, on which the movie was based.
There must be something in the water.
Just before dawn, skeletal bodies surface on the Han River in Seoul, Korea. More bodies are discovered all over the nation. The cause of death is determined to be a mutated parasite worm that brainwashes its hosts, ultimately making them jump into bodies of water and to their death within days of infection. As the number of victims rapidly increase, the government sets up an Emergency Response Task Force and puts all infected citizens into quarantine. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical company salesman Jae-hyeok realizes that his family is infected, and becomes desperate to find the cure. In his frantic search to save his family, he uncovers a frightening conspiracy behind the epidemic.
"Deranged" is scheduled to release in select cities across North America, including Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, Chicago, New York, and Toronto (Full list of theaters below).
