Stephen Chow beats Bruce Willis

19 Feb – In Malaysia, Stephen Chow's very own "Journey To The West" managed to top the weekend box office (14 – 17 Feb), beating out the fifth sequel to the "Die Hard" franchise with Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney. The highly anticipated Hong Kong film received great reviews and audiences flocked to the cinemas to watch the retelling of the classic Chinese tale.

In Singapore though, since "Journey To The West" had been out longer, the film still hung around in third place while "Ah Boys to Men 2" continued to be champion.

Meanwhile, Willis' "A Good Day To Die Hard" managed to beat "Journey To The West" to second place, but it still cannot seem to beat Jack Neo's Singapore military themed film.

In Hollywood, what we had predicted the week before came true with "A Good Day To Die Hard" topping the box office, beating out "Identity Thief" from their top spot last weekend.

Newcomers "Safe Haven" and "Escape From Planet Earth" ended up in third and fourth places while "Warm Bodies" jumped down a few spots from last week in fifth. "Beautiful Creatures" did not seem to have done as well as hyped, premiering at the box office in sixth place. "Beautiful Creatures" did better in Singapore than in the US, but as it will only premiere in Malaysia on 21 February, we can only wait until then to see how well it does when it premieres.

Other new films that were released over the weekend in Malaysia are "Together", "Lost In Thailand", "Kerat 14", "Murder 3" and "Sillunu Oru Sandhippu".

Other new films that were released over the weekend in Singapore are "Upside Down", "Parker", "Hitchcock", "Love...And Other Bad Habits", "The Wedding Diary II", "Kadal" and "All About My Wife".
