K-ent Considers Space Sweepers a Hit After Movie Debuts to #1 Movie Worldwide on Netflix for 3 Straight Days

Super Bowl weekend is normally quiet in box office premieres in the US during the pre-COVID era and the only movie to drop is smaller budget counterprogramming. With theaters mostly still closed in many countries around the world, movie premieres have been either with lower box office expectation and haul or moving to streaming premieres. Korean sci-fi movie Space Sweepers (Spaceship Victory) is best reviewed as pretty good for the first time attempt from Chungmuro to blast into space.
