Kris' movie 'xXx: Return of Xander Cage' is off to a great start!


The movie started playing in theaters on January 20th, and the show became an instant #1 at the box office worldwide. It brought in over $50.5 million USD, landing in the #1 spot in countries such as India, Russia, France, and Germany. This is only a start of how the movie will be doing, as it's not released yet in Korea, Japan, and especially China. The movie will start playing in those countries in February.


SEE ALSO: EXO is the only K-pop group on Billboard's top boxscore list


Fans who were watching the movie in the countries that it is released in were treated to Kris partying it up on a criminal island, shooting lots of guns, and being a "baller" (his own words). Also, fans were treated a bit of a surprise when during the movie, he's introduced to mechanical gloves called 'EXO-gloves'. It's unclear if that's just a little Easter egg, or if it actually stands for something in the movie, but it's something fun nonetheless.

Yi fan. He doesn't go by Kris anymore. This is weird... maybe it's just a coincidence. Although it kinda makes sense since the SM gets part of his payment for the movie.

He's credited as Kris Wu for the film so that's what he asked to be known as. I guess for an international audience he considers himself more memorable as Kris.

He is credited in this movie as Kris Wu, not Yifan.

How does SME get part of the payment. He's settled with them and has paid out of his contract?

Naw he and Luhan are stuck signed to SM in SK and Japan till the contracts expire, and in that time they still have to pay percentages to SM.

So they get a cut of everything except their Chinese promotions? Dang. Thanks. I tend to zone out whenever SME gets mentioned

It was kind of an anticlimax result I must say, I think the courts tried to please every party as best they could. But basically yes a percentage of any revenue made from SK or Japan goes to SM till probably about 2018. If Exo got the standard 7 year contract that is.

If the movie plays here and in Japan I'm assuming after the explanation SME will get a percentage if Kris gets a percentage of profits (if he has a good agent)

No I don't think that's the case. I assume that because he's hired by the movie producers through his international management all movie earnings from ticket sales to merchandise get collectively claimed through America. Hard luck SM.

But it means unless he works with SM he full stop can't promote there, and we all know how much SM like to stop their former clients from working in the same market as their current idols.

He can stay in China and make 3 times the money he would make in both those places combined

Which is why I'm led to believe the courts were out to please every party within reason.

A Chinese guy in an American film has exactly what to do with Korean pop culture?

I dont know how many people will read this but let me tell you a fact that Kris or xxx team DID NOT throw any kind of shade regarding exo gloves.  Use your google and you will find that it's actually a BRAND!
