By the time of publication, according to Maoyan box office statistics, "Sweeping Drugs 2" had a cumulative box office of 1.17 billion. Although the daily box office only ranks fourth, it's not even as good as the movie "Nezha: The Devil Boy Comes to the World".
But friends who pay attention to the box office should find that "Sweeping Drugs 2" will work hard in the evening, and attendance and box office will rise rapidly. This may be because many fans of these veteran male gods I am no longer young, and may not have time to watch movies during the day. At night, "Sweeping Drugs 2" will become the "Little Prince at Night" to harvest the box office. "Sweeping Drugs 2" was released for 17 days, and Maoyan's latest box office forecast is 1.305 billion, which means "Sweeping Drugs 2" has a great chance to eventually surpass "Wushuang" to become the highest-grossing Hong Kong movie in the mainland.
The box office of "Sweeping Drugs 2" has not broken the record yet, and it may only be a matter of time. Now we might as well take a look at the box office list of Hong Kong movies so far (box office data source Maoyan)
1. "Wu Shuang" Douban scored 8.1 points at the box office of 1.273 billion
"Wu Shuang" was a dark horse in the National Day file last year. It lost to "Aunt Li Cha" and "Shadow" at the box office on the first day of the show, but it has been all the way since then. Beheaded, smashed the Guanya movie and won the single-day box office champion. With the word-of-mouth effect, the box office has soared. The National Day file won 628 million in seven days, and the final box office reached 1.273 billion. It is currently the highest-grossing Hong Kong movie in the Mainland. The success of "Wu Shuang" proves that Hong Kong films still have a huge market in the Mainland. As long as the quality is excellent, the audience will still pay for it. The story of "Wu Shuang" is tortuous and the ending is amazing, and the duo showdown between Aaron Kwok and Chow Yun-fat is also very interesting. It is worth mentioning that "Wu Shuang" is also Guo Zhou's highest-grossing movie in the mainland.
2, "Fight of Macau 3" Douban scored 4.1 billion at the box office of 1.116 billion
3, "Sweeping Drugs 2 Heaven and Earth Showdown" Douban with 6.2 points at the box office of 1.17 billion (released)
4, "Fight of Macau 2" Douban scored 968 million at a box office of 5.5 points
11, "Face of Macau" Douban scored 5.6 million at a box office of 524 million
"Macao Fengyun" series can be said to be Wang Jing's masterpiece of "Fried Cold Rice", from 2014 From the beginning of 2009, Wang Jing will bring "Macao Fengyun 1". Although the score is only 5.6 points, the box office has reached 524 million. With such a high box office return, it is no wonder that he has the idea of making a series of movies. The three films together have won over 2.6 billion. For Hong Kong movie viewers, this is a box office victory, but it is another consumption of feelings. If this situation cannot be improved, will Hong Kong movie viewers really believe in Hong Kong movies that grew up with them?
5, "Anti-Corruption Storm 4" Douban 6.0 points at the box office of 795 million
"Anti-Corruption Storm" is a relatively successful series of films by Gu Tianle in the mainland market, the first in 2014 "Anti-Corruption Storm" 95 million, "Anti-Corruption Storm 2" 208 million, "Anti-Corruption Storm 3" 442 million, "Anti-Corruption Storm 4" 795 million, the box office has been rising all the way, but the score has been hovering above and below the passing line. In terms of film quality, this series is a mediocre commercial work. There are no major problems and there will be no surprises. "Anti-Corruption Storm 5" will also be released in 2021. I don't know if everyone will go back to support it?
6, "Ye Wen 3" Douban 6.4 points, box office 769 million
In 2008, Ye Weixin and Yen Zidan launched "Ye Wen" with a box office of 769 million. Not only established the status of Donnie Yen as an action superstar, but also completed the branding of "Ip Man" Kung Fu movie. From now on, "Ip Man" will arrange a strong opponent for Yen Zidan or create a gimmick, and if one is not enough to fight ten, then find the champion. "Ip Man 3" is Donnie Yen against boxing champion Tyson, and the latest "Ip Man 4" Donnie Yen will fight the US Marines in Chinatown, the villain is led by Scott Akins.
7, "Chill 2" Douban 7.0 points, box office 676 million
"Chill" directed by Liang Lemin and Lu Jianqing was once hailed as the best Hong Kong police film after "Infernal Affairs". Although it is a bit of reputation, it does repaint Hong Kong. The new mode of producing police and criminal films, literary drama is more exciting than action drama. As a sequel movie, "Chill 2" has also become larger, with a tight rhythm and excellent acting skills. In the end, it also won 676 million box office, far surpassing "Chill"'s 252 million. Judging from the reputation and box office presented by the Cold War series, 3" may further increase the box office.
8, "Walker Walker" Douban 6.7 points at the box office of 605 million
The appearance of this movie is estimated to be largely due to the 2014 series "Walker Walker" is too hot, breaking Records of online dramas, TVB’s annual ratings champion added. In 2016, Zhang Jiahui, Louis Koo, Wu Zhenyu, Charmaine Sheh, etc. joined forces to bring the movie version. To be honest, the series is exciting enough. The movie "Walker Walker" can only be said to be a condensed version of TVB. Dramas have routines but at least they are not clichés. The actors' acting skills are explosive enough, and they have also made the movie's box office high. It is worth mentioning that "Apostle Walker 2" will be released on August 7.
9, "Chasing the Dragon" Douban scored 7.2 points at a box office of 577 million
Many people said that "Chasing the Dragon" was an unconventional operation of Wang Jing, with a box office of 577 million, and Douban scores also reached 7.2 points. For Wang Jing, who has always been well received, it is understandable for the audience to comment on this. "Chasing the Dragon" is actually not a new subject. In 1991, "Lie Hao" talked about the same characters. "Chasing the Dragon" wins in earnest production and has the temperament of a Hong Kong film. The story of the two heroes is indeed attractive enough. It is Wang Jing's best movie in recent years, but this year's "Chasing the Dragon 2" is still "smashed".
10, "Slaying the Wolf 2" Douban scored 7.4 points at the box office of 560 million
12, "Slaying the Wolf Greedy Wolf" Douban 7.1 points at the box office of 522 million
ten years ago "Broken Wolf" turned out, Donnie Yen vs. Wu Jing, and Donnie Yen vs Sammo Hung. The wonderful play became a classic, but unfortunately it was not released in the mainland. In 2015, the action actors of "Slaying the Wolf 2" included Wu Jing, Zhang Jin, Tony Jia, and Lu Huiguang. Naturally, there was nothing to say in the action scenes. Among the few people, Zhang Jin played the best.
It is not difficult to see from the list that these movies are basically series, and the ratings are actually not high. Only one "Wu Shuang" is over 8 points, because "Macau Storm" also makes the whole look Too unsatisfactory. Of course, it should be noted that some of the top 12 films are not pure Hong Kong films. Many of them are joint venture films. The planning here mainly refers to the film production team.
