The Donnie Yen Chi Tan starred, Teddy Chan Tak Sum directed film KUNG FU JUNGLE (YUT GOR YUN DIK MO LUM) was released simultaneously on October 31st in Hong Kong and in Singapore. In recent years few Chinese films have been able to perform well in Singapore, but KUNG in 4 days made around HK$ 5 million. Chan Tak Sum could not be more excited, "Chi Tan's character attracted viewers to keep watching. I hope in the future we will head toward this direction, and not fight for the sake of fighting."
This film had the highest weekend box office for Chi Tan in the past 4 years, surpassing his previous films THE ICEMAN, SPECIAL ID and THE LOST BLADESMAN. Even the Singapore distributor was pleasantly surprised with the box office and believed firmly that the film will be able to break 12 million.
