South Korea: ‘Jurassic World’ Dominates; ‘Ted 2’ Has Limited Potential
– After this past weekend, Jurassic World is up to an impressive $27.3 million in South Korea. That makes the market #4 on the list of top overseas territories for the latest member of the $1 billion global club.Jurassic World‘s success is another key win for the sci-fi genre in the growing market.
– Ted 2 is set to open in South Korea this week, but expectations are not high. The first Ted made only $1.8 million after opening in September 2012. Raunchy comedic sequels do not perform well in South Korea: 22 Jump Street and The Hangover: Part III were not even released theatrically, and The Hangover: Part IIearned only $427K.
