Business crashed over 40% as last week’s big winner failed to retain its audience and no new major titles braved the marketplace for its second weekend. Just over a million tickets were sold over the frame, with Hollywood claiming an 80% share of that total.

Just like it has around the world, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice fell a hefty 70% in its second frame, seeing its take shrink to 344,224 viewers (USD 2.55 million). After 11 days, the film is just shy of two million admissions (USD 14.56 million) and at this rate won’t come even close to a further milestone.


The lone spot of bright news on the chart was Disney’s Zootopia, which rose 11% in its seventh weekend. The film added 292,234 spectators (USD 2.13 million) to bring its total to a phenomenal 3.6 million admissions (USD 28.52 million).


OH Dal-su’s leading role debut in THE GREAT ACTOR garnered some interest in third place, drawing 78,258 moviegoers (USD 545,673) during a not quite wide release. In total, the film has been seen by 128,611 viewers (USD 833,791). Just behind it, mid-level US thriller Misconduct, with Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins and Josh Duhamel, drummed up 71,095 viewers (USD 515,039) and 112,422 admissions (USD 752,498) in four days. Domestic marketing placed supporting actor and local superstar LEE Byung-hun front and center.


Closing out the top five was the low-budget youth drama One Way Trip, which stumbled 63% in its second session, adding 31,144 spectators (USD 223,809) for a solid 172,678 admissions (USD 1.18 million) total.


Next week, the fight for the top spot should be competitive, with local thriller Insane, US sci-fi 10 Cloverfield Lane and Hugh Jackman-Taron Egerton feel-good sports drama Eddie the Eagle all entering the fray.
