HÀ NỘI — Independent data site Box Office Vietnam reports that as of May 7, the new box office hit Lật Mặt 6: Tấm Vé Định Mệnh (Face Off 6: The Ticket of Destiny) by filmmaker Lý Hải had earned over VNĐ200 billion after two weeks in theatres.

More than 1.2 million people, according to a representative from the film's distributor CGV, saw the movie within the first four days of its release.

Following the success of Trấn Thành's Nhà Bà Nữ (The House of No Man) (VNĐ458 billion) and Bố Già (Dad, I'm Sorry) (VNĐ420 billion), Lật Mặt 6 is now the third highest-grossing Vietnamese film of all time.

This phenomenal performance was expected by many critics and moviegoers when the film's box office took in over VNĐ100 billion in just three days.

The plot of Lật Mặt 6 sets it apart from others in the same series. The flick follows a group of six young men who have known each other since they were little and have spent their entire lives living together in a small town.

The protagonist, Phương, bought a lottery ticket on behalf of six friends and gives it to their friend An to keep, promising to split the money evenly if they win. 

After An's tragic death in an accident, the group must dig up his grave to get the winning ticket. As envy spread, group members chased one another for the lottery ticket, and some even involved their families in the fight for the prize.

Many reviewers praised Lật Mặt 6's script, saying that it was a marked improvement over the previous parts.

The picture stays true to director Lý Hải's style, with a deep setting, exciting action sequences, and a humorous and unexpected narrative.

Lý Hải's film series Lật Mặt is a box office success, with three of the six films in the series landed on the list of Vietnamese films with revenue of more than 100 billion đồng, including Lật Mặt 5: 48h (Face Off 5: 48H) (VNĐ156 billion), Lật mặt 4: Nhà Có Khách (Face Off 4: The Walking Guest) (VNĐ117.5 billion), and Lật Mặt 6: Tấm Vé Định Mệnh (Face Off 6: The Ticket of Destiny).

The entire series grossed approximately VNĐ712 billion. VNS
