My Hidden Wife is Sweet - Chapter 690 - Box Office 2
Chapter 690: Box Office 2
Like them, Ling Yan’s crew of Dream of a Long Life 2 was also invited to the Lugano Film Festival.
Although Dream of a Long Life 2 did have a good box office, it was obviously not going to continue to do well after its release.
Also, the ratings on the internet kept falling.
Ling Yan was furious when she heard that the box office of Sleepless exceeded Dream of a Long Life 2.
“I knew that Li Xing’er’s matter was not that simple. Mu Weiwei is indeed making use of this opportunity.”
She had done everything on purpose before the movie premiere, when Li Xing’er tried to incite the public to attack her.
Of course she would announce the truth to the public the day before the movie premiere, and when the public realized that they had misunderstood her, they would feel guilty and support her movie.
Also, if the truth was revealed at that time, Li Xing’er would have to cancel the screening of her film because of the pressure.
She had gained popularity and released a new promotion for the movie, increasing the screen viewing rate and driving Li Xing’er out of the entertainment industry.
It was a smart move.
“The clarification of the incident with Li Xing’er, has indeed brought a very high box office to Sleepless. Also, the netizens who spontaneously promoted them, are also helping to push forward the box office.” Assistant Director Ke Wei sighed and said.
“If this continues, the box office will be completely overtaken by them.” Ling Yan gritted her teeth and said.
They had a famous director and it was a movie made by her, if Mu Weiwei exceeded the box office, then she, as the legendary Movie Queen, would be totally humiliated.
“Of course, our scores are dropping.” Deputy Director Ke Wei sighed.
Ling Yan looked at James and Ke Wei and said unwillingly, “If that happens, maybe you can afford to lose face, but I can’t.”
If the box office of Sleepless exceeded that of her movie, people would think that Mu Weiwei was better than her.
Ke Wei sighed and said, with one hand supporting his forehead, “Dream of a Long Life is a top-notch film and although it can bring us a great deal of popularity and box office, the audience will naturally compare Dream of a Long Life 2 to the first one. I think that we were unable to exceed the first one and Mu Weiwei’s Sleepless is indeed excellent…”
He had told them from the beginning that this would be their biggest competitor, but they had not believed him.
Now, it was finally happening.
“But we already have the invitation to the Lugano Film Festival and I have confirmed with the judges that we have won the award.” James looked at them and said with a smile.
Hearing the news, Ling Yan asked, “What about Mu Weiwei and the rest?”
“They were invited too.” Ke Wei said.
That kind of excellent work would definitely be successful.
James said, “Even if their movie is capable, it will just be a newcomer award.”
He had been to so many TV festivals and he was very familiar with this routine.
Without a certain amount of influence, she would not win the first prize.
“That is true.” Ke Wei said.
Although Dream of a Long Life 2 was not as good as the first one, it was still better than many movies released this year.
Therefore, they had a high chance of winning the award.
