Patrick Frater Asia Bureau Chief Weekend honors at the South Korean box office went to the Japanese animation film “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba – To The Swordsmith Village,” the latest installment in the “Demon Slayer” film and TV franchise.
It earned $2.31 million between Friday and Sunday, for nearly a quarter of the total weekend cinema business, according to data from Kobis, the tracking service operated by the Korean Film Council (KOFIC).
Local charts show another new release, Korean-made crime drama “The Devil’s Deal,” leading the field. That’s because it sold a greater number of tickets 257,000 compared with 235,000 for the Japanese title and Korean charts favor unit sales over gross revenues.
With a lower per ticket price, “The Devil’s Door” had a weekend gross score that was a notch lower at $2.00 million. Further muddying the analysis, the two films released on different days. “The Devil’s Deal” released on Wednesday and scored a total of $3.81 million over five days. “Demon Slayer” opened on Thursday and earned $2.94 million over four days.Read more on variety.com
