JS Cheung, a superintendent in Explosive Ordinance Disposal Bureau of Hong Kong Police Force, went undercover seven years ago into the gang led by the most- wanted crime boss Blast. Cheung successfully uprooted the gang and arrested a few robbers including Blast͛s young brother Biao. However, Blast was on the loose and he swore he would be back for revenge. Seven years have passed and Blast kick starts his plan—a series of bomb attacks have sparked fear among Hong Kong citizens. To maintain law and order, Cheung must put Blast behind bars and he is ready to sacrifice his life to fight a though battle with the ruthless bomber.

Home Market Releases for January 2nd, 2018

January 2nd, 2018


This is the first Tuesday of the year, so it should be no surprise that there are not a lot of top-tier releases on this week’s list. In fact, there were so few releases worth mentioning that I had to pad the list with some films that were not selling well enough to be worth mentioning during most weeks. As for the Pick of the Week contenders, there were only two: Lucky and Battle of the Sexes. It was a close race, but in the end, I gave that title to Lucky on DVD. More...

Limited and VOD Releases: Lovers of Limited Releases

May 5th, 2017


It is one of those weeks where it is hard to find a film with high box office potential. Last Men in Aleppo is the best movie, but as a documentary, it likely won’t expand significantly. Chuck has a great cast, but it’s reviews are merely good. Maybe The Lovers will do the best. More...

International Box Office: Guardians Have a Nearly Galaxy-Wide Opening with $101.2 million

May 3rd, 2017

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 started its international run in first place with $101.2 million in 37 markets. The film’s biggest single market was the U.K., where it dominated the market with a 67% market share and $16.94 million in 632 theaters. This is 86% above the opening the original opened with in that market and the second best opening in that market this year. It also cracked $10 million in Australia earning $6.44 million on 705 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $11.72 million. This is more than half of the total weekend box office and an improvement of 27% from the original film; however, the Wednesday opening reduced its weekend haul. Other major markets include Germany ($8.3 million); Mexico ($8.13 million); France ($7.9 million); and Brazil ($6.9 million). Given this start, the film should be able to reach $500 million internationally, maybe even $600 million, depending on its legs. That would give it a realistic shot at $1 billion worldwide. More...
