“Lost in Thailand,” which has pulled in a record-breaking $192 million at home, will open at select AMC theaters in North America on Friday.

After achieving record-breaking box-office success back home, the producers of Lost in Thailand will soon find out whether their Chinese road-comedy can travel. AMC has announced the film will open at 29 locations in North America on Friday.

The directorial debut of Chinese actor Xu Zheng, Lost in Thailand was reputedly produced for just $4.8 million and topped James Cameron’s Titanic to become the highest-grossing 2012 release in China, and the second highest-grossing film of all time.

The film follows an odd couple – one a savvy urban businessman and the other a clueless country bumpkin – on a riotous road-trip across Thailand.

Many have attributed its appeal among Chinese audiences to the way it captures the sensibility and concerns of ordinary Chinese middle-class people. "Very, very few Chinese films today show the real conditions of Chinese life," Zhou Tiedong, president of China Film Promotion International, told The Hollywood Reporter in January. "This film talks about the struggles of the middle class and the grassroots, their happiness or sorrow."

I checked on the AMC website and it looks like it's airing here in Alexandria, so I'll probably go watch it for Chinese new year.
