Ang Lee’s 3D adventure-drama Life of Pi (Chinese title: 少年派的奇幻漂流, or “Young Pi’s Rafting Fantasy”) made a strong showing this weekend, winning the box office last week and taking in an impressive $17 million in its four day opening. Based on Yann Martel’s 2001 novel of the same name, Life of Pi is about a 16-year old boy who becomes shipwrecked and stranded in the Pacific Ocean with a Tiger. It has earned 3 Golden Globe nominations, including Best Picture – Drama, and Best Director.
Meanwhile, the Hong Kong action movie Cold War fell by almost 50% after two weeks leading the box office. It has grossed 38.4 million, making it the second highest-grossing Chinese language film this year.
