      The Chinese movie Hero finally made its way to the US 2 years after
      its debut in the Asian market.
      http://www.cynopsis.com


      After bringing in over $100 million in Asia, the film premiered at
      the top of the heap here with a $17.8 million gross in North America
      at over 2000 locations.

      The majority of moviegoers at its opening weekend were 18-29 year
      old males according to exit polls. This is the second martial arts
      movie that Miramax has distributed (Iron Monkey was the first) and
      the leading US premiere for an Asian live action production (Nielsen
      EDI) with Rumble in the Bronx (Jackie Chan) in second with a 1996
      $9.6 million opening weekend.

      Interesting fact
      Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is the leading Asian movie box office
      holder with $128 million total but it did not break more than $10
      million for a 3-day run in its 8 months in movie theaters.
