Gone Girl, inspired by Gillian Flynn‘s best-selling book of the same name, debuted here Oct. 23 via Twentieth Century Fox Korea and has earned a cumulative $3.8 million. Fincher’s previous films have been well received in the Asian country, with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button bringing in close to $11 million in 2008.
Debuting second was We Are Brothers, the latest among Korean filmmaker Jang Jin‘s unique brand of comedy films handled by Showbox/Mediaplex. The story about two brothers who, separated at an orphanage, reunite as a pastor and shaman took 22.1 percent of the share. It has so far earned close to $3 million.
My Love, My Bride (Cineguru/Daou Tech), the local rom-com that topped the Korean box office for two consecutive weeks, stepped down to third place. It has grossed $13.57 million thus far.
