Bait 3D Takes $2m Bite Out Of Chinese Box Office
BAIT 3D Takes a $2M Bite out of the Chinese Box Office and Opens at #1 Beating Out LOOPER and TAKEN 2. BAIT 3D, which first screened publicly to enthusiastic audiences who gave the film standing ovations at sold out screenings at the Venice Film Festival is now taking a bite out of international box offices since its recent releases in Italy, the US, Australia, The Netherlands, Kuwait, Malaysia and Russia over the past couple of weeks.
The film reached nearly $2M at the Chinese box office today alone, beating out LOOPER, which took in approximately $300k and TAKEN 2 which took in roughly $1M. BAIT's first week box office is also expected to be more than that of TAKEN 2 reported a Chinese news media outlet.
"The audience for BAIT 3D is growing exponentially worldwide," said producer Gary Hamilton. "We're delighted with the film's immense success at the Chinese box office, which is a testament to the high quality of entertainment BAIT has to offer."
