The Chinese romance drama film “Shining For One Thing” is creating quite a buzz in the country’s box office considering its historic pre-sale with days to go before the release.
The drama has made history by surpassing $40 million in pre-sales alone, a historic achievement for the genre. The film is set to debut on December 30, 10 days after Aquaman And The Lost Kingdom, which has done modestly so far, and just a day before the highly anticipated Taylor Swift’s tour film “The Eras Tour Film“.
In its 19th day of pre-sales for the December 30 to January 01 period, Shining For One Thing has accumulated a total of $40.7 million so far, and there are still 6 days of pre-sales remaining.
The anticipation is evident with the fact that a substantial 91,000 total screenings already booked for its opening day, one of the grandest release in the country for a film.
