On October 1, the first song of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" "Sword leaves Mount Hua" was released nationwide, with a box office of 49.2 million on the first day.

     This box office result did not cause much repercussions in the show business community industry, because the pre-sale of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" was almost 50 million. It is normal for the box office to be around 50 million on the first day, and it is not worth making a fuss about nothing.

     Many people are watching with cold eyes to see whether "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" can earn back the investment cost under the powerful impact of "Ace Agent", and whether it will become Lu Chen's first failed work.

     On October 2, the box office of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" was 57.72 million, an increase of more than 8 million, and the total box office exceeded 100 million.

     "Ace Agent" rose simultaneously, and the 77 million box office still crushed "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer".

     A domestic blockbuster and a Hollywood blockbuster, two movies basically dominated this year’s National Day, while the other domestic movies released in the same period can only eat scraps and are not very competitive at all.

     In today's film market, large production investments are the norm. The production costs of domestic films can easily exceed 100 million, and most of them are eaten by the actors' pay. Small-cost films are basically difficult to get ahead, and occasional exceptions can only be attributed to miracles.For example, "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" has an investment of nearly 150 million, a promotion of 50 million, and a total cost of more than 200 million. It is regarded as a medium-level domestic blockbuster. In recent years, large-scale productions of 400 to 500 million are everywhere.

     But compared with "Ace Agent", that's a minor magician in the presence of a great one.

     Therefore, although several domestic blockbusters have beaten Hollywood blockbuster at the domestic box office, and even occupied the top of the charts (of best-sellers) at the box office, overall, facing the impact of Hollywood blockbuster, domestic films are not at a disadvantage. It's not as big as it was ten years ago, and it's still lagging.

     This is the important reason why many people in the movie circle don’t like "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer". In their opinion, Wuxia movies and action movies are not much different in genre. It is nothing more than a different era and background. How can they compete with Hollywood special effects? Big production?

     Some people have asserted that when the box office of several starring fans such as Lu Chen is exhausted, "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" will inevitably face a big box office dive, and it is lucky to be able to recover the cost.

     However, the reality has given all those who slap "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" badly. On the third day of the National Day holiday, the box office of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" soared to 75 million+. The increase was jaw-dropping. .

     In stark contrast, "Ace Agent" fell to 52.28 million. The two movies happened to be reversed today and yesterday, which shocked the countless eyeballs of the show business community!"The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" completed a beautiful counterattack. With the lineup of films lagging behind the opponents, the box office in turn crushed "Ace Agent".

     In just three days, many people didn’t understand. While searching for answers through various channels, they also bought tickets to enter movie tickets. They wanted to see with their own eyes what kind of magic power this movie has. One-day box office. Can actually grow against the trend.

     "It must be the box office!"

     In the general manager's office of Marriott Pictures, Lu Shengda sitting on the boss chair patted the mouse in his hand and said angrily: "People nowadays specialize in these crooked ways. This is how the atmosphere of the show business community is corrupted by them. of!"

     Buying the box office has long been an open secret in the movie circle, even an unspoken rule, and it has a long history, and nowadays, the handwriting is getting bigger and bigger.

     In order to increase performance and win the title of box office champion for certain movies, Company has done a lot of ways to spend money to increase the box office at any cost.

     Many netizens have discovered that the midnight show of some movies is often full, with an attendance rate of 100%, and there are not many places left when the audience buys tickets. However, after entering the show, they found that they had booked the show, and they didn't have it until the end Others come in.Some people in the show business community once publicly stated that none of the domestic films that broke 100 million on the first day did not buy the box office, and some even spent 50 or 60 million to achieve the goal of breaking 100 million, and buying box office has already become a box office. The actual cost of a complete gray industrial chain is not too high.

     One of the most typical examples is that in 15 years, a domestic film's box office reached 2.7 billion, creating the highest domestic box office record, causing a great sensation and being publicized.

     But in fact, the real box office of this movie is only half. It not only buys the box office but also steals the box office. It is as stable as the mountain after being frequently revealed. It relies on the strong backstage of the producer.

     Although the relevant departments have cracked down on these undesirable phenomena, the focus of the crackdown is more on stealing the box office, basically turning a blind eye to buying the box office.

     So when Lu Shengda saw that the one-day box office of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" actually surpassed "Ace Agent", his first idea was that Chen Fei Media bought the box office, otherwise it would be impossible.

     The assistant standing nearby glanced at his boss, feeling quite speechless.Manager Lu Da had a face of righteousness and angered others for wicked ways. When Marriott Pictures’ "Youth Journey" was opened on the first day, he bought 45 million at the box office, otherwise he would not be able to break 100 million. Together they bought a full 70 million box office!

     Of course, he was complaining in his heart. On the surface, he agreed with incomparable approval: "Yes, I must have bought the box office!"

     Lu Shengda picked up the phone with angrily hēng hēng, and made several calls in a row.

     "Old Zhu, I'm Lu Shengda, I want to ask you something..."

     "Is it Mr. Gao? I am Lu Shengda from Marriott..."

     "I'm asking you something..."

     It took more than half an hour before and after he threw the a little hot phone on the table, his face was so gloomy that he could squeeze water out, and the air pressure in the office dropped a lot.

     The assistant watched his nose and nose, and he didn't even dare to take a breath for fear that he would be hurt by the fish.

     From the conversation between Lu Shengda and others just now, he heard that Chen Fei Media did not buy the box office for "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer", which means that the box office results of "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" are completely real. No moisture!This is really inconceivable. Such an astonishing trend means that in the next few days, "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" will have a big box office explosion. There is no problem in recovering the cost, and even a substantial profit can be achieved.

     Comparing Wan Hao Pictures' failure in "Journey to the Rivers and Lakes", Lu Shengda's mood at this moment can be imagined.

     What this assistant didn't know was that what really embarrassed Lu Shengda, nevertheless, he mocked Lu Chen, Chen Fei Media and "The Smiling, Proud Wanderer" in the Great Wall Club a few days ago.

     Thinking about it now, he laughed at others, but turned himself into a joke!
