Andy Lau Is The King Of The Box Office, But These Chinese Stars Still Outearn Him By A Lot
Does that make financial sense?
Hongkong singer-actor Andy Lau, 59, is Hongkong’s undisputed king of the box office, having raked in a whopping S$350mil in box office revenue the past year. And it looks like he’s hot stuff over in China as well, with his films frequently topping the daily box office.
Just take Shock Wave 2, which stars Andy, as an example.
According to reports, the movie currently holds the title of the top-grossing Hongkong film — it earned a total of NT$5.63bil (S$270mil) since its release late last year.
Oh, and the movie Shock Wave 2 dethroned is The White Storm 2: Drug Lords, which, you guessed it, stars Andy too.
