The Chinese-produced Lost In Thailand was made for a reported $3.1M and doubled that on its opening day. With $6.26M on December 12, it set a record for a Wednesday release, says Film Business Asia. It also took $14.9M on December 15, setting a one-day record for a domestic film and set another record for number of screenings with a massive 33,000 showings that day. The road movie, which follows two rival businessmen who travel to Thailand, beat single-day records held by Painted Skin 2, Titanic 3D and Transformers 3, Twitchfilm reports. Its unofficial cume as of Thursday was $72.2M. Financed and released by Beijing Enlight Pictures, the movie was written, produced and directed by Xu Zheng in his feature helming debut. The comedy will nevertheless face strong competition this weekend with the release of Jackie Chan’s Chinese Zodiac and Andrew Lau’s The Guillotines. There’s currently no word of Stateside distribution, but you can click over to see a subtitled trailer:
