Vietnamese family drama ‘Bố Già’ flares at specialty box office – Deadline

We might finally see some light returning to the specialty box office this Memorial Day weekend.

Bố Già (Dad, I’m Sorry) is a family-friendly comedy-drama directed by Vietnamese comedian and TV host Trấn Thành and Vũ Ngọc Đãng. The film is an adaptation of a blockbuster web drama that was originally posted to YouTube, where it garnered over 90 million views for its five episodes.

The film follows the story of Sang, a former motorcycle taxi driver from a popular area of ​​downtown Saigon, as he struggles to make ends meet for his family.

It was slated to hit national screens during the Lunar New Year holidays, but was postponed by COVID-19 until this weekend.

Estimates have Bố Già earn between 350 and 380,000 dollars on 20 screens, give or take. If the film distributed by Galaxy Studio ends strong this 4-day weekend, the Vietnamese-language comedy-drama will cost an average of $ 15-20,000 per screen. By now this year, a limited-release movie would be considered to have had a good premiere if it averaged one big per screen. Reports indicate that Vietnamese communities have had strong performances in the markets of Southern California, Dallas, Houston and Atlanta.
