Hong Kong 3D porn 'Sex and Zen' outpacing Hollywood hits at theaters

It shouldn't be surprising that a porn movie made in Hong Kong is managing to bring in some big bucks. What is surprising is the fact that a certain porn movie made in Hong Kong is making more than flicks like Avatar and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides -- and it's coming to America soon. Hey, don't look at The Juice* like that; this is really news!

Sex and Zen 3D: Extreme Ecstasy doesn't yet have a North American release date, the Hollywood Reporter says, but it beat out Avatar's opening day gross in Hong Kong by raking in $351,000 in its first 24 hours, then selling out its entire first week. That was enough for China Lion Film Distribution to buy the rights to what producers call "the world's first 3D erotic film." That's right. Ironically it seems the movie won't be release in mainland China, given the racy subject matter, THR says.

The flick really seems more like an epic kung fu movie, judging by the fairly SFW trailer above (note no nudity, but several people are stabbed with no qualms) and has already opened in Australia and New Zealand. It brought in $1.1 million over six weeks in Oz, knocking out competitors Scream 4 and Fast Five. In Kiwiland it matched Pirates with on opening week per-screen average of $24,000. It's not like Disney can really compete with that.
