Vijay’s Leo: Bloody Sweet was #1 this weekend on worldwide box office

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Vijay’s Leo: Bloody Sweet was #1 this weekend on worldwide box office.

Martin Scorsese’s Killers Of The Flower Moon has delivered the biggest ever reported box office for a film from Apple Studios/Apple TV+, launching with an estimated $23.0m in North America and $21.0m in 63 international markets – combining for $44.0m worldwide, and knocking Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour off the top of the global box office chart.

Hitherto, box office has been not at all or negligibly reported on major Apple titles such as Greyhound, Cherry, Tetris, Finch and best picture Oscar winner CODA.

Screen has not received a territory breakdown on the film. However, Numero has reported Au$1.16m ($732,000) for Australia, and NZ$181,000 ($105,000) for New Zealand – Leo landing in third place in both markets.

Directed and co-written by Lokesh Kanagaraj (Master, Vikram), Leo is inspired by David Cronenberg’s The History Of Violence. Joseph Vijay Chandrasekhar (known as Vijay) stars as a café owner who violently despatches a gang that comes to rob his premises – and then attracts the attention of a drugs cartel claiming him as a former member. The supporting cast includes Sanjay Dutt and Trisha Krishnan. Tamil thriller Leo – aka Leo: Bloody Sweet – is the latest film from India to register strongly at the box office, with an estimated $48.5m worldwide since release last Wednesday (October 18), according to Comscore data.

Prathyangira Cinemas delivered an estimated $2.1m for the weekend period in North America, and $4.7m since release day. For rest of world – including home market India – the Comscore numbers are $29.1m from 28 territories for the weekend period and $43.9m since release day.

Distributed by Paramount Pictures, Killers Of The Flower Moon faced the hurdle of a run time north of three hours, a potential barrier for audience members, and for exhibitors trying to maximise the number of showtimes per day in their cinemas.

Killers Of The Flower Moon opened at the top of the box office in 24 of its 63 international markets, including France, Germany, Australia, Spain, Netherlands and Switzerland. UK/Ireland, where the film landed third behind Trolls World Tour and Eras Tour, proved the top international market, with an estimated $3.0m. Next comes France with an estimated $2.6m, then Germany ($1.6m), Australia ($1.4m) and Spain ($1.3m).
