3D Sex And Zen Makes UK Newspaper Shock

The UK daily newspaper Metro today published a story about the success of 3D Sex and Zen : Extreme ecstasy. The article makes much of the films first day box office being higher than that of Avatar, cue the bluey jokes. Click the pic to read the article.


It was a real shock to see this on my way to work this morning, the fascination with 3D seems to know no bounds, add some softcore sex and you have a formula a tabloid newspaper cannot resist, even from more than 6000 miles away!

I've been going 'nuts' over this on my Facebook page. I'm over the 'moon' about the film and it's early success.

A buddy from the NYAFF told me that he/they are trying to bring this over to NY for the fest. Though he also said that it isn't look like it's going to happen but.....fingers crossed! =)

It's actually playing here in Oz, in 3D no less, but in the abbreviated 113m variant. If I had some spare cash, being that cinema tickets here are now almost $20AUD a pop, I'd go and see it just for a laugh.

If you've been following everything about this trashy HD-shot sexploiter, you'll know there's about half a dozen different versions been created of it for different markets. Nice to see Oz got one of the "soft cuts", wussy nanny state we've become... :p

I'm sure it would be worth a trip to a cinema for the novelty factor but also to see the diverse range of clientle the movie would pull in.
I haven't paid that much attention to it really, I just thought it was really cool it made our papers!

Looks like they missed the actual release date of Lust, Caution in that paper by about 10 years. Oops!

Hmmm...well I guess the HK film industry can be "proud" of their "unique" product once more gracing the top pages of international papers. All the Western media attention might actually increase the change of the film being distributed to Western shores, although I don't know how great the impact (positive or negative) this will have on HK cinema....

Anon, it's just a novelty as far as the press is concerned, and as far as the UK public is concerned outside the HK and action fans, then Chinese cinema consists only of badly dubbed Kung Fu movies!
