Sleeper hit holds strong against Dragon

Ang Lee's Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon had a sleepy opening last week accumulating a modest $1m (HK$7.1m) from 44 screens in its first eight days on release. Despite the presence of Hong Kong star Chow Yun-fat and the popular Michelle Yeoh, this only gave Crouching Tiger a screen average of $22,727 per screen. Its opening day gross on July 6 was similarly disappointing, grossing $0.1m (HK$1,099,370) from 42 screens.
