“Green Lantern” opens at No. 6 in Korea


LOS ANGELES - Superhero comic book adaptation “Green Lantern” was the box-office champion in North America last weekend, with $53.2 million in the region’s ticket sales as it debuted at No. 1.

Canadian heartthrob Ryan Reynolds stars as superhero Hal Jordan and Blake Lively as love interest Carol Ferris in the $200 million live-action movie in which Green Lantern Corps warriors try to defeat supervillain Parallax.

One foe “Green Lantern” did defeat last weekend was “Super 8,” which marked its second box office week with $21.5 million at the No. 2 spot. The J.J. Abrams sci-fi thriller had debuted at No. 1 last week.

In Korea, “Super 8” took fourth in the number of moviegoers last weekend, beating “Green Lantern,” which placed sixth. “Super 8” drew 234,500 moviegoers, whereas “Green Lantern” attracted about half that figure with 119,000.

“Kung Fu Panda 2” kept the top spot for the fourth-straight week in Korea last weekend. The film was sixth in North America last week.
