2011-04-16 07:39

Hong Kong – A Hong Kong film billed as the world’s first 3D soft-porn movie outsold the blockbuster Avatar on its opening day in the city.

A news report said today that the movie, titled Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, drew 30 000 viewers and took HK$2.78 million (about R2.43 million) on its first day, according to the South China Morning Post.

The opening day total compares to HK$2.5 million for opening day of the 2009 3D sensation Avatar, according to figures from Hong Kong’s Motion Pictures Industry Association.

The 3D movie, which opened Thursday, is a sequel to 1991 Asian erotic movie Sex and Zen which took a total of HK$18 million.

A couple from mainland China were arrested trying to record the new movie using their mobile phones and were fined 2,000 Hong Kong dollars each at a court hearing yesterday, the Post reported.
