“BLACKPINK The Movie” Is Highest-Grossing Event Cinema Release Of 2021
“BLACKPINK The Movie” is a hit at the box office!
On August 17, CJ 4DPLEX and Trafalgar Releasing announced that BLACKPINK’s new film has become the highest-grossing event cinema release of 2021. According to a report by Music Week, “BLACKPINK The Movie,” which was first released as a limited engagement on August 4, has already grossed $4.8 million from almost 100 territories.
The film, which highlights the four members and their concert performances in celebration of BLACKPINK’s fifth anniversary, has surpassed 500,000 moviegoers worldwide—the highest number of admissions for any event cinema release this year.
Furthermore, as local COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in Southeast Asia, the movie is scheduled to be released in additional countries towards the end of August. At the moment, “BLACKPINK The Movie” has screened in over 3,400 cinemas, but that number is expected to rise to 4,200 in the weeks to come.
On its opening night, “BLACKPINK The Movie” hit No. 6 at the U.S. box office and earned the second-highest per-screen average, bested only by “Jungle Cruise.” In Mexico, the film topped the box office on August 4 and has since drawn over 120,000 moviegoers.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK on the success of their new film!
