Could this be Hong Kong's answer to The Passion of the Christ - but without all the gory scenes? OK, so it may not exactly rival the $4.4 million that Mel Gibson's biopic brought in over four days of Easter last year, but the Christian documentary Days of Noah did surprisingly well at the box office by grossing $2 million over the five days of this Easter weekend. Organisers said ticket sales were bolstered by churches and social groups buying in bulk or booking out entire theatres. As of yesterday, the publishers and producers of the film, Media Evangelism Limited, had scheduled more than 199 local screenings. The film is about the production crew's efforts to uncover the secret of the Great Flood and Noah's Ark. The crew's expedition to film the Ark's purported remains near Mount Ararat was the first such trip by a Chinese team. Days of Noah is also the first documentary by Chinese filmmakers to have such a wide release - at 20 screens in Hong Kong.
