Korean Film Remake “The Uninvited” Ranks 3rd in U.S.

“The Uninvited,” a remake of the South Korean horror movie “A Tale of Two Sisters,” ranked third in the North American box office in its opening week, drawing $10.5 million between Jan. 30 and Feb. 1.

The Dreamworks adaptation of the Kim Jee-woon film is directed by British brothers Charles and Thomas Guards and stars Arielle Kebbel (“The Grudge 2”) and Emily Browning (“Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events”). The story is originally derived from a Korean folktale, a spooky ghost story of two sisters who are murdered by their stepmother.

The action movie “Taken,” starring Liam Neeson, placed first with $24.6 million, while “Paul Blart: Mall Cop” came in second with $14 million, recording a total of $83.4 million in three weeks.

Renee Zellweger’s romantic comedy “New in Town,” had a mild opening week, ranking eighth with $6.8 million. Oscar-nominated movies such as “The Reader,” “Milk” and “Doubt” retained their popularity at the box office.

  1. Ooh, so this is the movie that Emily Browning is in. I saw the commercial and kind of wanted to see this in theaters. I’ll probably just watch the original movie, though.

  2. Since I already saw “Tale of Two Sister” and know what happens, I’m gonna ruin it for all my friends who are going to go watch “The Uninvited”. >D

    But Emily Browning is in it so maybe I’ll go and watch it too. XD

  3. I like Emily Browing since she was considered as Bella in Twilight, LMAO I watched the korean version and it was really good! I got goosebumps all the way! But the remake version should be good as well, just not as good as the original, I think :)
