The Lunar New Year film AGENT MR. CHAN (DUNG DUK DUT GUNG) opened on the Lunar New Year's Eve (February 15th). With the Lunar New Year's Day, its two day opening box office and the Valentine's Day advanced screenings accumulated over HK$ 11 million in Hong Kong and Macau as it became the top Chinese Lunar New Year film on both days. AGENT opened simultaneously in Hong Kong and Macau. With its third day in release yesterday and the box office projection, its box office should have no problem with reaching HK$ 15 million.
With AGENT becoming a box office hit, Dayo Wong Tze Wah successfully broke the curse and rid himself of the "box office poison" title as he and Charmaine Sheh Sze Man both landed in the 10 million box office mark. Tze Wah and Ah Sheh both were encouraged about the performance. Today on the Lunar 3rd (February 18th) Tze Wah and Ah Sheh would hold an online appreciation event and answer questions online. AGENT will not open in the Mainland until after the Lunar New Year.
