It is the Asian and Hong Kong Film record in Hong Kong history, absolutely unprecedented! Viewers going today and tomorrow would have a chance to be the 100 million box office creator. The comment section welcomes everyone to post their ticket stubs. Thank you everyone for taking the journey and creating history with us." Many viewers posted their tickets and were excited about the box office soon reaching 100 million. Some said that they have already seen it more than 3 times. Some online asked why earlier media reports said that the box office has already passed 100 million.
