Buppha Rahtree 3.1: Rahtree Reborn opened as the No. 1 movie at the Thai box office for the weekend of April 9-12, according to Box Office Mojo, which states that the blood-soaked slasher-ghost-comedy-romance earned US$405,435 (about 14.3 million baht).
Yuthlert Sippapak's latest installment in his comedy-horror series, released by Sahamongkol Film International, bested the previous week's No. 1 Fast & Furious and the rival new releases, including Race to Witch Mountain and the animated Monsters vs. Aliens (it's at Bangkok's IMAX!).
Rounding out the top five was Kantana Animation's Khan Kluay II, which was in its third week of release. And Phranakorn's two-week-old gay-katoey sports comedy Taew Te Teen Raberd (Sassy Players) was in sixth place. The two films had been in second and third place the previous weekend.
