Happy Birthday takes the cake
Happy Birthday, Mono Film's new romantic drama by director Pongpat Wachirabunjong with stars Ananda Everingham and Chayanan Manomaisantiphap, was the No. 1 movie in Thailand over the weekend.
Box Office Mojo has the numbers.
It earned around 19.98 million baht, about double the earnings of the second-place finisher, Luc Besson's Transporter 3.
Both Happy Birthday and Transporter 3 were released in Thai cinemas for a sneak preview run the week before, so the gross-to-date earnings likely reflect that.
The previous week's top two films, The Day the Earth Stood Still and Ong-Bak 2 were at No. 3 and 4 respectively. Pale, sharp-toothed teenagers in Twilight remain in the top 5.
I have reviewed Happy Birthday (I actually liked it, I think) and there is feedback coming in now at Enjoy Thai Movies.
