The “Train to Busan” sequel grossed $ 9.20 million from 2,575 scre screens over the weekend, sharing an unacceptable 93% share.

“Peninsula” easily dropped old titles in Korea after the movies re-launched. The “bombshell”, which opened on July 8, added 15 158,000 for a total of 4 984,000 after three weekends. The Korean hit, in its fifth weekend since the release of “#Live”, grossed $ 150,000 for a score of $ 13.0 million.
The arrival of “Peninsula” in Korean theaters did not happen soon, according to data recently released by the Korean Film Council.
