Kung Fu Hustle Breaks Records Everywhere

In Chinese Mainland, the three day record is approximately 50 million yuans (US$ 6.04 million), breaking the record set by Hero two years ago.

It collected more than 10 million yuans (US$ 1.21 million) on opening day and the record doubled on Friday, breaking the single-day record set by Hero (18 million yuans).

In Hong Kong, the revenue in the first two days reached HK$10,560,770 (US$ 1.36 million) and the three day record (Thur - Sat) is roughly HK$ 15 million (US$ 1.93).

During the first day (Thur), it earned HK$ 4.11 million (US$ 0.53 million), ten times more than The Polar Express (opened on the same day) and Shark Tale (opened a week earlier) did.

In Taiwan Province, the opening day record (Fri) is TW$15.4 million (US$0.48 million), breaking the Friday record set by The Day After Tomorrow (TW$10.0 million) and the Saturday number reached TW$25.0 million (US$0.78 million), 25 percent more than the preview record set by Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets.

The number should reach TW$ 100 million by Sunday. Kung Fu is also doing very well in Singapore and Malaysia.

Another Chinese film, A World Without Thieves, has earned more than 90 million yuans (US$10.87 million) in the Chinese Mainland and HK$ 4.31 million (US$0.55 million) in Chinese Hong Kong in two weeks.

The all-time highest earner in the mainland China is Hero (US$ 30.21million) and this year's champion, so far, is House Of Flying Daggers (US$ 18.12 million).
