BTS’s ‘Bring The Soul’ Film Broke Records After Grossing $24.3 Million
Earlier this month, BTS returned to the big screen with their third film, Bring the Soul: The Movie — and the world’s biggest boy band is still breaking records while on vacation.
Film distributor Trafalgar Releasing just announced that the film brought in $24.3 million worldwide, once again breaking the box office record for event cinema. (The group’s first film, Burn the Stage, grossed $18.5 million following a second limited run last year.) The number of screenings varied at different locations across the globe. But this latest figure accounts for main screenings between Aug. 7 and Aug. 11, as well as select encore showings.
The septet also broke their admissions record for event cinema with a total of 2.55 million admits around the world. (Burn the Stage previously notched 2 million admits.) Additionally, Bring the Soul became the widest release for event cinema by playing in over 5,000 movie theaters across 112 territories. Today In: Consumer

Meanwhile, it hit No. 9 at the box office in the U.K. Following the film release, The Hollywood Reporter initially reported that Bring the Soul opened to $8.2 million overseas.
