A big congrats is due to the entire cast and crew of zombie thriller movie Train to Busan, with the first day of official premiere in South Korea breaking the record for first day box office haul. Train to Busan had a limited release last weekend but on its first day of wide release took in 872,000 admissions in one day equaling $5,76/ million gross. That breaks both the domestic box office first day record held by The Admiral: Roaring Currents back in 2014 with 682,700 admissions and $4.77 million as well as the foreign release record held by Captain America: Civil War. This is great news for the movie but even better news for the depressed state of movies in recent years, any blockbuster helps to elevate the industry and return a veneer of excitement for audiences to partake.
