Vietnamese film “Furies” surprises when it succeeds in generating nearly US$600,000 in the far West – the US.
The movie “Hai Phuong”, whose English title is Furie, starring Veronica Ngo, takes on a long journey of a struggling mother, a former gang leader, who will go to the extreme as long as she can bring her little daughter back home safely from the hands of a child trafficking ring.
An action-packed film armed with the traditional Vietnamese martial art Vovinam, it was first commercially released on February 22 in Vietnam, before it went aboard to the US on March 1. The distribution rights were secured by Well Go USA Entertainment, which also screens the movie in Canada.
As of March 24, “Furie” managed to gross at least US$578,000 in the US, according to Box Office Mojo, a website that tracks box office revenue.
