China, 2013, 117 minutes

Some interesting news has been coming out about Personal Tailor.which opened in China on December 19th and in limited release in North America on the 20th.

First off, it set a new opening day record for a 2-D film in China. After 6 days the comedy had earned the equivalent of  $65.1 million U.S. dollars and was the top grossing film for the week of December 16-22.

In the U.S., distributor China Lion has been very happy with Personal Tailor's performance and is still playing it throughout most of the initial locations, including here New York City.
