Tamil film Leo has emerged as the biggest overseas weekend opener for Kollywood with a day to spare as it grossed USD 15.40 million (Rs. 128 crore) through Saturday, overtaking Jailer, which grossed USD 15 million during its four days debut. Combined with the Rs. 167 crore earned in India, the worldwide total box office gross of the film stands at Rs. 295 crore. It will be surpassing the Rs. 300 crore mark today, once again at a record pace for the industry.
Following a slump in its box office earnings on Friday, Lokesh Kanagaraj’s ‘Thalapathy’ Vijay-starrer Leo made a remarkable comeback on its third day in theatres, registering impressive numbers, on Saturday.
Leo earned Rs 40 crore nett in the domestic market (early estimates), recording an 11.88 per cent surge in box office earnings from Day 2’s figure of Rs 35.25 crore. With this, Leo’s total domestic nett has reached Rs 140.05 crore. At the same time, in just three days, Leo’s worldwide gross has crossed the Rs 200-crore mark.
While the film saw reduced occupancy in the Tamil market on Friday, the figures improved on Saturday. The morning show occupancy in the state was 65.73 per cent, which increased to 79.51 per cent during the evening screenings, compared to 63.03 per cent and 70.67 per cent during the same period the previous day.
Leo Surpasses $15 Million In Overseas
The way the film started on Thursday, it was expected to cruise past USD 20 million in four days. However, there was a bit of a slowdown on Friday and then Saturday didn’t make the required gain in some of the markets, so it won’t pull that off but nevertheless set to surpass the previous four-day number by 20 per cent with USD 18 million projected by EOD Sunday.
Leo has broken or will be breaking opening records for Tamil films everywhere barring the United States. That said, the film has performed best in Europe, which is a stronghold for Vijay as even his weakest performers are among the top grossers and this film is certainly not a weak one. Middle East has also seen record numbers with UAE registering 250K admits and around 50K admits in Saudi Arabia, the latter being close to all-time record for Tamil films.
