"It's like I can reach out and touch it!" - Everyone with a sense of humor.
But really, this is an achievement regardless of the movie's content, and here's a bit about its victory:
The $3.5 million Cantonese-language production "3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy" had earned 17 million Hong Kong dollars ($2.2 million) as of Tuesday since opening last week on 73 screens, according to figures provided by producer Stephen Shiu. That's nearly seven times the total take so far for Hollywood thriller "Scream 4," which has earned HK$2.5 million ($320,000).
It also kicked Avatar's ass in first day box office sales!
The film brought in HK$2.78 million ($360,000) on its opening day last Thursday, eclipsing the previous first-day record set by James Cameron's 2009 3-D sci-fi epic "Avatar," which earned HK$2.63 million ($340,000) on its first day.
"Sex and Zen" – a remake of a 1991 Hong Kong movie by the same name – features full nudity and camouflaged lovemaking scenes but does not show actual sexual intercourse, as is common in pornographic films. The movie tells the story of a sexually frustrated scholar in ancient China who loses himself in the harem of a duke he befriends.
It's very interesting to us that there was such a huge response to this. Not that pornography is a bad thing, but rather it was a major release (something that is almost exclusively direct to DVD here in the States) and that people came from all over China to see it!
We wonder if anything like that would fly here… probably not. Not yet at least. Unless you count Love And Other Drugs?? Let's get a 3D conversion going, right people??
Would U see a 3D Porn movie in a theater filled with people??
