“Peninsula,” a sequel to the 2016 hit “Train to Busan”, dominated the South Korean box office for the second weekend.
“Peninsula” earned $4.49 million between Friday and Sunday. Earned from 2,100 screens, that was a respectable drop of 52% compared with its opening weekend score of $9.92 million. It propels the film’s cumulative score in its home market to $21.0 million since its July 15 release through distributor Next Entertainment World.
“Peninsula” alone accounted for 81% of the nationwide box office in Korea, down from 93% the previous weekend. But with no other strong new release title in the market, the overall weekend total dropped.
Aggregate box office for the top 10 films was $5.32 million, compared with $9.77 million in the previous weekend. That downtrend could be reversed next weekend with the release of the political-military thriller “Steel Rain 2: Summit”, which arrives in Korean theaters on Wednesday.
