Guardian Angel, Turnover: 48h, Adventure Secret Status – 3 Vietnamese films at the top of the box office on the occasion of the holiday – Photo: ĐPCC
The joy of the box office on the occasion of April 30 this year is the overwhelming Vietnamese film when the top 3 are all Vietnamese films: Guardian Angel, Flip: 48h, Adventure Status. And the top 5 has 4 Vietnamese films, including The Godfather.
3 leading Vietnamese films, but at the box office not exploding
As of the afternoon of 3-5, Guardian Angel collected 35 billion VND, Turned over, collected 19.1 billion VND (bringing the total revenue to 153 billion VND after nearly 3 weeks of screening), while Trang Ti Adventure collected 17 billion VND. . These numbers are not so explosive but still encouraging, in the context of people rushing to travel or afraid to go to theaters because of epidemics.
This is also a rare April 30 ceremony in 10 years now, there have been 3 Vietnamese films with over 15 billion VND. This information is very happy when Vietnamese films not only host the holiday but also have a fairly equal revenue, not falling into the state of “one hundred billion film, the rest are dead”.
The “Situation” is expected by Vietnamese filmmakers to create a breakthrough in fantasy films and epic effects for children.
“Hollywood’s summer begins to return, but Vietnamese films have started to have a place in this game” – said Box Office Vietnam. Previously, Vietnamese cinema usually only waited for the Tet movie season or some scattered holidays throughout the year, there was never a real summer movie season. But if there are works that are pioneering and successful, perhaps the situation will improve.
Even so, after joy are worries. Tracking during this year’s holiday season, it can be seen that film sales did not spike or spike on major holidays such as April 30, 1-5 or Sunday (May 2), while those are The day when the audience hits theaters the most, even after showing, the films have a certain viral effect on social networks.

And although the top three Vietnamese films, their grosses aren’t outstanding. The hit movies such as Flip: 48h and The Godfather have first week sales of 50 and 55 billion, very high starting points.
Therefore, with the exception of Flip: 48h has passed the hundred billion mark, the two new movies, Guardian Angel and Adventure Tiara, are very difficult to reach the hundred billion mark when the beginning is not as good as many “big-gross” movies. In addition to the fact that the Ho Chi Minh City cinema has just closed from 6pm on 3-5 days to prevent epidemics, this goal becomes even more distant.

So that summer is not a private playground foreign film
Over the past 10 years, the April 30 box office has remained as a private playground for foreign blockbusters. Vietnamese films have only been able to step in on a few occasions.
For example, from 2011 to the present, every April 30, Vietnamese audience will be able to see the Marvel superhero “blockbuster”. In addition to “blockbuster” Marvel also has “blockbuster”, hit movies from other studios such as Fast & Furious, The Land of Silence, the Fall of the White House …
I’m not yet 18 is a successful Vietnamese movie in terms of box office
Vietnamese films shown on April 30 from 2011 to 2021 have: Order to erase, Saigon Yo !, The smell of burning grass, Marry now, I’m sorry, Ma dai, Turn over: Film set, I’m not yet 18 , Face-to-face: 3 missing guys, 100 days with me … Except for I’m not yet 18 and Flipped, other movies don’t attract the audience.
Every year, Vietnamese film producers often determine to “avoid” Marvel “blockbuster” movies, only a few movies dare to clash. But understand that “blockbuster” Marvel also contributes to the audience to theaters. This year, when there was no such strong competitor, total box office sales declined.
This year, the success or failure of Vietnamese films will decide whether producers will continue to be salty but with the occasion of April 30 or back to Tet and other holidays such as September 2, Christmas … And with love This picture is probably not.
