My Hidden Wife is Sweet - Chapter 689 - Box Office Fight
Chapter 689: Box Office Fight
A few days after Li Xing’er attempted suicide to force Wei Ziting to marry her, Gu Weiwei’s movie, Sleepless, was released at the same time as Ling Yan’s Dream of a Long Life 2, so the box office competition was very fierce.
Dream of a Long Life 2 made 560 million yuan on the first day, followed by 490 million yuan on the second day.
The audience of Dream of a Long Life 2 mostly watched the second movie because of the feelings they had for the first movie. Maybe because they were looking forward to it too much, many people expressed that it was not as good as they had expected.
It was not even as moving as the first one.
Apart from the fans, most of the audience of Sleepless supported Mu Weiwei as an apology because of the previous misunderstanding.
Unexpectedly, the movie was very good.
So after watching the movie, everyone started to encourage others to watch Sleepless.
[It has been a long time since I have seen such leading actors performing together and making excellent movies. Five stars must be recommended.]
[After watching Dream of a Long Life 2, those who watched Sleepless said that they must re-watch Sleepless.]
[Are all the actors in Sleepless performing that well? Third Master’s fans are saying that they have finally seen his true performance.]
[Sleepless has surpassed Dream of a Long Life 2 in both plot and acting.]
Of the two movies, Dream of a Long Life 2 was getting worse. However, Sleepless was improving.
On the sixth day of the movie, Jolin announced the box office result to everyone.
“I have two pieces of good news, which one do you want to hear first?”
“Both of them are good news, what is the difference?” Fu Shiyi complained.
Jolin said, “We have exceeded Dream of a Long Life 2 at the box office yesterday.”
Normally, the box office would be the highest on the first day of the movie and then it would keep dropping.
However, the box office of Sleepless did not exceed Dream of a Long Life 2 on the first day, but over the following days the box office did not drop by much. It finally exceeded Dream of a Long Life 2 yesterday.
Everyone applauded. This was a movie that everyone had put in so much effort into and everyone was glad to see such a result.
“Of course we can surpass them, what about the other good news?” Fu Shiyi said.
Jolin smiled mysteriously, glanced at everyone and then announced his news.
“I just received a call that we are invited to attend the award ceremony at the Lugano Film Festival.”
“If it is a special invitation, then we might get a prize.” Fu Shiyi excitedly said.
They had a great box office result and a good reputation. If they won a trophy at the Lugano Film Festival, they would be the biggest winner of the year.
Song Yu and the rest said, after some excitement, “But we still have the promotional event to run, so we can’t all go to Lugano.”
Fu Shiyi pointed at Gu Weiwei and said, “Of course it is going to be our director and the leading actress. You have to get an award for either the Best Director Award or the Best Actress Award.”
The movie was in the promotional period and the promotional event could not be cancelled. It would take at least three days to go to Lugano and collect the awards.
Therefore, as she was undoubtedly the director and the female lead, she was the most likely winner.
Instead of turning him down, Gu Weiwei straightforwardly said, “Okay, I will do it. Thanks for doing the promotional work.”
