The countdown has reached the final stage for Ranbir Kapoor’s Animal. Scheduled to release on 1st December, the film is all set for an explosive start at the worldwide box office on its day 1. After showing a bumper response in India, the biggie is also witnessing a mad response in the overseas market. Keep reading to know about its advance booking status!
Competing with biggies in India
The Sandeep Reddy Vanga directorial is competing with the highest pre-sales of 2023 at the Indian box office. As we covered in the morning report, the film is on par with Tiger 3’s pre-sales. In the morning itself, the collection of around 10 crores gross was recorded, and with still 3 days to go, the final pre-sales total is aiming to go beyond 20 crores gross.
Remember that such numbers are coming in despite Animal being an ‘A’ rated film with a duration of 3 hours and 21 minutes. Also, it is a regular Friday release, so it’s highly commendable that the Ranbir Kapoor starrer is competing with Salman Khan’s Diwali release. Rajinikanth’s Jailer, which had sold tickets worth 18.50 crores gross for its opening day, will be easily surpassed.
Animal’s advance booking status at the overseas box office
As per trade buzz and also as reported by trade analyst Nishit Shaw, Animal has already crossed the mark of half a million dollars for day 1 advance booking in the overseas market (including premieres). Going by the last tracked data, the film had sold tickets worth $600K (US-Canada, UK, AUS and UAE). Going by the current pace, the mark of $1 million will be touched very soon.
Signs are pretty much clear that Animal is all set to register one of the biggest openings of 2023 and has an outside chance of hitting the century at the worldwide box office on its opening day.
