Here is a piece of good news for Christopher Nolan’s fans. The movie has finally crossed the milestone of $150 million globally.
According to the report published in NYTimes, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet got a massive opening in North America and the film collected over $20.2 million even after releasing in limited cinemas. This equals to 147 crores INR. As per the report from Variety, Tenet is currently being shown in 611 locations all across the UK and Ireland. And according to Comscore, despite the pandemic, the movie has grossed $7.16 million till now.
Speaking about the Chinese market, Deadline reported that Tenet earned over $30 million this weekend. Tenet earned its significant chunk of collection from China. According to the statistics mentioned above, have a look at what the global box office collection looks like.
North America $20.2 million (INR 147 crore)
China $30 million (INR 219 crore)
UK and Ireland $7.16 million (INR 52 crore)
Worldwide collection $150 million (INR 10.99 thousand crores)
Quoting Forbes, “There was hope that the film would sail past the likes of Inception ($68 million in 2010), The Dark Knight Rises ($53 million in 2012) and Dunkirk ($52 million in 2017) and end up with a final gross closer to Interstellar ($122 million in 2014, sans the recent reissue). But betting on the best-case-scenario is often a dangerous game, as while Interstellar earned a whopping $18 million via a recent re-release (pushing the film’s global cume past $700 million), Inception also barely earned $3 million via its re-release in China.”
