Number 3 at the Box Office: Concert Film by KPop Sensations BTS Earns $6.8 Mil in US
Yes, “The Batman” is up to $238 million after this weekend.
And “Uncharted” rose to $113 million.
But it was the number 3 box office movie that should get your attention. That was “BTS Permission to Dance on Stage Seoul — Live Viewing.”
With hits like “Butter” and “Dynamite,” the Korean KPop sensations BTS (which stands for Buy This Soon) raked in $6.8 million over the weekend. The concert film was playing in 800 theaters where it took in $8,518 at each location. Ka ching!
“Permission to Dance” is from Trafalgar Releasing, which has already had success with previous BTS concert films and ones by other groups as well. “PTD” has a total worldwide take of $32.6 million making it their biggest offering yet.
Will we adults ever see this movie? I don’t think so. But it doesn’t matter. The kids love it, some kids, who are bracing themselves to spend tons more on BTS in the coming year.
