"The Viral Factor" Slumped at Box Office

Answer: approx. NT$540,000

This is a far cry from the movie's production cost of NT$800 million! He felt disappointed with the box office result after much effort on his part to shed his usual image by gaining weight, grew a stubble and hair overhaul. Even, vowing that he'll not do another action movie again due to the dangerous stunts.

Whilst "The Viral Factor" is not performing well despite the above average ratings by movie critics, Vic Chou's & Ella Chen's "The Perfect Two" is doing fairly well, earning NT$1.92million on the same day it premiered with "The Viral Factor".

Have you seen any of the movies?

    I'm so sad for jay Chou, but really, he can't have it all! Maybe his relationship with Hannah Quinlivan is such a bad PR move

    800,000,000NT$ ---> $28,000,000 US. Anyway, a failure that bad usually has to do with whoever produced/is promoting it, assuming that it was a normal release to begin with.
