The box office of Taiwan food comedy Zone Pro Site: The Moveable Feast (總舖師) grew 67% on its second weekend on release in Taipei.
Over three days the film made NT$13.6 million (US$454,000), almost twice as much as new entry Kick-Ass 2, on NT$7.04 million (US$235,000), which was second-placed over the three-day weekend.
Zone Pro Site has now taken NT$31.2 million (US$1.04 million) in the capital. It has performed particularly well on weekdays, making NT$3.28 million (US$110,000) on Wed 21 Aug when businesses were closed due to a typhoon.
The highest-grossing domestic film this year is another local comedy, David Loman (大尾鱸鰻), which made NT$122 million (US$4.07 million) in Taipei on release in February. It also stars Zone Pro Site’s Tony YANG (楊祐寧).
Like David Loman, Zone Pro Site is distributed through Warner Bros (Taiwan) Inc (美商華納兄弟 (遠東) 股份有限公司臺灣分公司). The new film is represented internationally by Ablaze Image Ltd (光在影像股份有限公司).
