The Long-awaited Mr Han - Chapter 3548
Chapter 3548 Untitled
“But it will be hard after this. You just made a really good movie as your first movie, so the audience will expect a lot from you. They will expect more from your next film, be ready,” reminded Han Zhuoli.
Han Zhuofeng nodded. “I know, after this movie, I will continue training. I won’t rush to choose a new movie.”
“Let’s go. It’s rare for our few families to gather. Let’s go and find a place to eat,” said Old Mrs. Han.
The only issue was that with a few families gathered together, a normal restaurant would not work; there was no place big enough for them.
As such, everyone went to Sheng Yue again.
They booked a small banquet hall in Sheng Yue.
One or two tables would be enough for a family.
While they were waiting for the food, Old Mrs. Han asked, “How do you plan to promote the next movie?”
Old Mrs. Han pouted and said, “Although I know that the main teams for those two movies might not be involved in scheduling the showtime, and they might be innocent, I can’t just let it go.”
Who did not have times when they were overprotective and biased?
“So I am thinking of ensuring that the box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ must be higher than those two movies. It would be a tight slap in the faces of those few companies! They wanted to suppress ‘Dimensions,’ so we’ll use the truth to tell them that their suppression is useless!” said Old Mrs. Han.
Lu Man smiled and said, “Grandma, don’t worry, the promotions of ‘Dimensions’ will not loosen up. Besides, it is a good movie. From the current market, the netizens’ word of mouth is more useful than any other marketing methods.”
“I estimate that from the first day until the third day, even till the seventh day of Lunar New Year, during this whole Lunar New Year holiday, the box office sales of ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’ won’t be too bad.”
“After all, everyone would watch movies during the holiday. Perhaps they would not watch it a few times, but if they wanted to watch them all at least once, they could only do so during these few days,” said Lu Man.
“It’s only after the holiday that we can see whose stamina is stronger.”
“However, if the two cinemas are not willing to schedule showtimes for ‘Dimensions,’ we can use the netizens’ comments to force them,” said Lu Man.
“Anyway, we’re not scared here. Zhuoli and Big Brother will stand up for their own little brother, it’s very justified.”
“Let’s look at the box office sales of the three movies today,” said Lu Man, “At the golden time at night, I have already told the WeChat official accounts to post a series of promotions of ‘Dimensions’. There won’t be any spoilers. Anyway, this movie is a thinker, people will have to watch it from start to end. Even if they want to spoil something, they won’t know where to start.”
“We can just promote the special effects,” said Lu Man.
At night, the WeChat official accounts posted a special effects promotion for ‘Dimensions’.
The audience who watched the preview previously had already promoted the special effects.
Now, the WeChat official accounts made some GIFs as examples.
There were many people who decided to watch an easy movie like ‘Lost Detective’ and ‘Sky Mechanical City’ first. After seeing the promotions, they would surely have a good impression of ‘Dimensions’ and would want to watch it later.
Besides, these official WeChat accounts used fun language combined with pictures, so it was very attractive.
At night, Han Zhuofeng did not sleep as he waited for the final results on the ticketing app.
He wanted to see the box office sales on the first day of release.
It wasn’t just Han Zhuofeng. The actors and crew members who participated in the production of ‘Dimensions’ also did not sleep.
Everyone waited for the refresh at midnight.
Finally, the app refreshed at midnight.
On the first day of the Lunar New Year, the movie with the number one box office sales was ‘Dimensions’!
On the first day of release, the box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ was 350 million.
And the box office sales of ‘Sky Mechanical City’, which was in second place was 330 million.
It wasn’t far from ‘Dimensions’.
The box office sales of ‘Lost Detective,’ which was in third place was 290 million. It was some distance away from the first two.
Han Zhuofeng was thinking about whether he should discuss this with Lu Man, but he was afraid that Lu Man was already asleep.
If his elder brother caught him, he would get scolded.
Unexpectedly, while he was still hesitating, he received Lu Man’s text on WeChat.
Lu Man straight away sent him a screenshot of the box office sales.
“Ask your elder brother to get someone to investigate the attendance of ‘Dimensions’ in the other two cinemas tomorrow,” said Lu Family, “The showtimes scheduled for ‘Dimensions’ weren’t too good, and there were areas which the Han Corporation’s cinema couldn’t cover. If there were audiences, who were willing to watch ‘Dimensions’ even at those bad times, then ‘Dimensions’ can definitely defeat the other two movies.”
“Because in Han Corporation’s cinema today, during the showtimes scheduled for those two movies, the attendance wasn’t high,” said Lu Man.
Honestly, Lu Man and Han Zhuofeng weren’t worried anymore.
After the second day and the third day.
The box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ and the other two movies were still pretty good.
However, the box office sales of the other two movies had a little drop.
However, the drop wasn’t obvious, and ‘Dimensions’ was on a steady rise.
With this comparison, the box office sales of the other two movies seemed a bit weaker.
The box office sales of the other two movies dropped on the second day and rose back on the third day.
However, on the fourth day, they dropped again, and on the fifth day, they started dropping continuously.
It seemed like after watching the movies, the audience all went to watch ‘Dimensions,’ and after thinking it was nice, they brought their friends and families to watch it.
Because of this, until the end of the Lunar New Year holidays.
The box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ continued to rise.
However, the box office sales of the other two movies slowly dropped.
During the holiday, the drop wasn’t that obvious because it wasn’t drastic, so the other party remained confident.
But after the holiday finished, everyone went back to work.
The number of people watching the movies peaked at night.
The box office sales decreased drastically.
The box office sales of ‘Lost Detective’ had already dropped to fifty million.
The box office sales of ‘Sky Mechanical City’ had dropped to eighty million.
However, the box office sales of ‘Dimensions’ were still above 200 million.
This made the directors of those two movies anxious.
After all, if the box office sales and the reputation were good, there would be benefits for them.
If they continued to shoot another film, it would be easy to get investors.
Their place in the circle would also become more stable.
The director of ‘Sky Mechanical City’, Liu Hengli, tagged the Han Corporation on Weibo to express his dissatisfaction.
“Even if the Han Corporation wants to help ‘Dimensions’, shouldn’t they give other movies a chance too? Aren’t they crossing the line?”
The director of ‘Lost Detective’, Zhang Youyi, also followed along to express dissatisfaction with the Han Corporation’s scheduling of showtimes.
The Han Corporation’s official Weibo account did not respond.
It was Han Zhuoli who replied, “It’s because the two big cinemas reduced the showtimes of ‘Dimensions’ that the Han Corporation made such a response. We can’t just brush it away when my little brother was bullied. My little brother isn’t just a pushover, you know?”
