The movie ‘Save me from the Evil’ (director Hong Won-chan) took first place in the box office on the 2nd day and started a full-fledged box office race.
According to CJ Entertainment on the 7th, ‘ Save me from the Evil’ was ranked No. 1 in the box office for two days in a row by mobilizing 285,490 (cumulative audiences 63,55,544) audiences on the second day of opening based on the integrated computer network of the Film Promotion Commission. In particular, it is ranked first in the reservation rate with the amount of reservations that dominate the competition at the same time, giving a foreboding to a strong box office boom ahead of the weekend.
As a result, it is expected that ‘Save me from the Evil’ will exceed 1 million during the weekend, and will record a box office. Then, it can shoulder-to-shoulder with successive summer box office hits ‘Duke’, ‘Youth Police’, and ‘Pirates: Bandits Going to the Sea’. Already on the first day of its release in August, the opening record of the film “Duke” (33,316 people), Hwang Jung-min’s representative work, as well as the opening record of “Shinsegae,” co-starring Hwang Jung-min and Lee Jung-jae, is more than doubled.
‘Save me from the Evil’, which became a hot topic on the daily real-time search query chart with Box Office, was the highest among Korean movie BIG 3 this summer with a CGV Golden Egg Index of 91% and a Naver audience rating of 9.11. As the ratings are recorded, expectations are being raised for future results.
The second place was ‘Steel Rain 2: Summit’, which was watched by 4,5966 spectators during the day. The cumulative number of audiences is 13.388784. ‘Peninsula’ took 3rd place by mobilizing an audience of 22,630. The cumulative audience is 3,593,675.
On the other hand, ‘Save me from the Evil’ is a hard-boiled chase action depicting the desperate pursuit and struggle of In-nam (Hwang Jung-min) and Ray (Lee Jung-jae), a ruthless pursuer who is caught up in a new case due to the last hit man mission.
