Seven years ago, Yu Fei went to a talent show audition, but was rejected for being late. Feeling sympathetic, the director's assistant, Yi Ze, secretly allowed Yu Fei in. To everyone's surprise, Yu Fei won the competition and became a star. After seven years, Yi Ze becomes the assistant of an ad director. During a commercial shoot, the rising star Yu Fei encounters Yi Ze once again. In order to win the director's favor, Yu Fei ingratiates himself with Yi Ze so cunningly that she thinks he's in love with her. Realizing Yu Fei's hypocrisy, Yi Ze seeks revenge on Yu Fei under the guidance of a self-proclaimed love guru.

International Box Office: Another Week, Another Milestone for Spectre

November 19th, 2015


Spectre again dominated the international box office earning $152.6 million in 92 markets for totals of $413.1 million internationally and $542.1 million worldwide. $500 million worldwide is enough to save face, but the film will need reach at least $600 million worldwide to have a shot at breaking even any time soon. It will likely need $700 million to $800 million to keep the studio happy. Fortunately, that seems very likely. The past weekend, the film opened in first place in China with $48.55 million. It also remained in top spot in the U.K. with $11.96 million in 617 theaters over the weekend for a three-week total of $118.39 million. It is now the fourth biggest hit in that market, while it has a shot at overtaking Skyfall for first place. It will need help from the holidays to get there. Will the movie still be in theaters come New Year's Day? Maybe. More...

International Box Office: Spectre Nearly Another Milestone

November 10th, 2015


As expected, Spectre remained in first pulling in $117.8 million in 73 markets for totals of $223.1 million internationally and $293.1 million worldwide. This is almost as much as it cost to make, so if it can double this figure, it should be able to break even eventually. The film's biggest market was the U.K. where it added $19.99 million on 696 screens over the weekend for a total of $98.82 million. It has already overtaken Jurassic World for the biggest hit of the year in the U.K. and should have no trouble rocketing into the top five on the all-time chart there. The film's biggest opening was in Germany, where it pulled in $18.06 million on 1,460 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $20.26 million. This is about 15% lower than Skyfall's opening in that market. Likewise, the film wasn't as strong during its debut in Russia earning $6.29 million on 2,112 screens, compared to $8.27 million on 1,254 screens for Skyfall. At this pace, Spectre will definitely fail to match Skyfall, but anything close to $800 million will be enough to break even, perhaps before it reaches the home market. It all depends on how much its global advertising campaign cost. More...
