Box Office News
Zone Pro Site: The Moveable Feast (總舖師) was the top-grossing film at the Taipei box office for the third weekend, on its fourth week on release.
The Taiwan comedy, which has its international premiere at next month’s Busan International Film Festival (부산국제영화제), made NT$9.20 million (US$310,000) over the weekend for a current gross of NT$71.6 million (US$2.41 million) in the capital.
Although figures outside Taipei can not be verified, the film’s Facebook page this weekend claimed that it had grossed NT$200 million (US$6.73 million) nationwide by Saturday evening after 23 days on release.
After keeping Kick-Ass 2 and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones off the top of the charts in recent weeks, Zone Pro Site bested Riddick this weekend. The new release made NT$8.08 million in Taipei over the three day weekend.
Two Taiwan documentaries opened at the weekend, YANG Li-chou (楊力州)’s Bridge Over Troubled Water (拔一條河) and HSU Ming-chun (許明淳)’s The Legend of Ataabu (阿罩霧風雲). They opened on NT$1.57 million and NT$0.63 million respectively.
