South Korea sets new records for Bond as `Quantum of Solace` tops box-office
"Quantum of Solace" dominated the Korean box office over the weekend, beating local hit "My Wife Got Married", reports Variety
The 22nd James Bond film opened Wednesday and brought in $3.3 million from 697,000 admissions on 570 screens, including a $2.45 million weekend take.
The opening was the biggest in South Korea for any movie in the James Bond series, beating previous record-holder "Casino Royale," which drew 420,000 admissions in its first weekend.
Besides Bond there was little solace for local exhibs. After winning two consecutive weekends, "My Wife Got Married" slipped to No. 2, adding only $770,000, or 162,400 admissions, although it played on 385 screens. The CJ Entertainment movie has cumed $6.7 million.
