A movie billed as the world's first 3-D pornn film has broken a box office record - outselling Avatar on its opening day. Film fans flocked to see 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy after it opened in packed cinemas across Hong Kong, reports The Sun.

It took 219,852 on its first day, eclipsing the previous record for Hong Kong set by James Cameron's 2009 3-D sci-fi epic which earned 207,638.

The 1.9million Cantonese-language film features full nudity and camouflaged lovemaking scenes.

Set in the Ming dynasty, it tells the tale of a sexually frustrated scholar who realises his ex-wife is the love of his life. The production is a remake of a 1991 Hong Kong movie by the same name.

Producer Stephen Shiu said: "We met people's expectations. People have always thought that you need 3-D technology for this kind of content. So people were very curious." The original 1991 film Sex and Zen is still the highest-grossing Hong Kong adult movie of all time.
