‘Tunnel’ breaks records with longest run at the top
“Tunnel” was released on Aug. 10 and is likely to reach 7 million tickets sold soon.
“Tunnel,” which depicts the struggle of Jeong-su (Ha), after being trapped inside a tunnel that suddenly collapses, broke the record previously held by “Spirits’ Homecoming,” which was released in February and stayed on the top of the box office for 17 days.
Hollywood horror flick “Lights Out” came second in its first week while Korean period film “The Last Princess” ranked third in its fourth week.
Hollywood flicks “Ghostbusters” and “Star Trek Beyond” ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.
Animated feature film “The Secret Life of Pets” is still going strong, as it ranked sixth in its fourth week.
Korean zombie blockbuster “Train to Busan” is in its sixth week but the popularity of the film shows no signs of slowing down.
The film became the 13th highest-grossing Korean film in history, after breaking the record held by “The Attorney” (2013) over the weekend.
“Florence Foster Jenkins” featuring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant came in ninth and Korean comedy film “Detour” debuted 10th in its first week.
