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.
