Curse Is Anything But At Chinese Box Office

It took Zhang Yimou's Curse of the Golden Flower just two weekends to become the biggest box-office hit in China for 2006. Daily Variety reported that the film earned $6.4 million in its second weekend, about half the $12.5 million it earned in its premier. Adding mid-week results, the film has thus far grossed a record $24.73 million, the trade publication said. China's Oscar entry for best foreign-language movie also performed well in the U.S., where it debuted midweek and went on to earn $859,000 by Sunday. It is playing in just 60 theaters. Meanwhile, Jackie Chan said on his website today (Tuesday) that he has launched a film company in China and intends to produce 10 films.

From the internationally renowned team of director Zhang Yimou and producer Bill Kong (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) comes a grand epic about the folly of war and the disintegration of one family under the weight of unrequited love, unforgivable betrayals, and the never-ending thirst for power.

When the King (Chow Yun Fat) unexpectedly returns home to his Queen (Gong Li) and two sons, he knows immediately that something is rotten in his lavish kingdom. His absence has given rise to love affairs, dangerous alliances, and malicious conspiracies all of which threaten to overthrow his power.

However, it may well be the King's own dark secret that threatens him most of all....
