Blue creatures in 3-D can't quite keep up with a 3-D blue movie at the box office in Hong Kong, apparently.

3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, the porn film that Eyder wrote about earlier this month, "earned 17 million Hong Kong dollars ($2.2 million) as of Tuesday since opening last week on 73 screens" in Hong Kong, The Associated Press reports.

And according to the BBC, on its first day the movie brought in 2.78 million Hong Kong dollars — more than the previous first-day Hong Kong record of 2.63 million, set by Avatar.
