SINGAPORE (Dec 29): Spackman Entertainment Group says its crime-action thriller Master produced by subsidiary Zip Cinema surpassed the film’s breakeven point within eight days of its official wide release on Dec 21.

As of Wednesday, Master has recorded total admissions of 3.8 million with gross box office revenue of US$25.3 million ($37 million), according to latest stats from the Korean Film Council.

“The film maintains its top position at the Korean box office and continues to be released on at least 1,263 screen daily, capturing at least 40.98% of the nation’s market share of box office revenue since its official release in Korea. Notably, Master was the highest grossing opening on the Christmas-weekend box office chart in Korea,” says Spackman in its filing.

Master is slated to be screened in Singapore theatres around Jan 12. The movie is directed by Cho Ui-seok and stars Korea’s three top actors, Lee Byung-hun, Gang dong-won and Kim Woo-bin.
