The Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi starred THE LION ROARS 2 (HOR DUNG SI HAU 2) two days ago opened in Hong Kong on 13 screens and only made HK$20,000 as she was stuck with the "box office poison" title. Actually, the film has already bettered Pak Chi and Kwon Sang-Woo's SHADOWS OF LOVE. SHADOWS OF LOVE only opened with HK$13,251.
THE LION ROARS 2 managed to save face in the Mainland. Since opening in the Mainland on August 17, it accumulated over 70 million yuan RMB. Although it has not passed 100 million, it was leaps and bounds better than Cheung Pak Chi's previous 5 films. When SHADOWS OF LOVE was released in the Mainland, its total box office was only 16 million yuan RMB.
