Suriya's recently released sci-fi thriller 24 performed exceedingly well at the worldwide box office in its opening weekend. But given its whopping budget, it is important for 24 to continue its good run in order to fall on the profit side of things.
So, how has the time traveling flick performed in its second weekend? According to reliable sources, the Vikram Kumar directorial has grossed close to 3.9 Crore rupees from its second weekend in Chennai alone.
Though this seems to be an impressive number, 24 still has a long way to go before it can be declared a hit at the Chennai box office.
In the USA though, the movie bankrolled by Suriya under his home banner 2D Entertainment, has hit the $1.5 Million mark, which is a tremendous feat for any Tamil movie.
"As you read this, #24TheFilm crosses $ 1.5 million mark [₹ 10 cr+] at NORTH AMERICA box-office. Still counting... An ENVIABLE feat! @Rentrak," Taran Adarsh, a leading trade analyst wrote on his official social media page.
On its second Friday (13th May) alone, the movie had collected an impressive $58,966 in North America, which had taken its gross to $1,351,954.
By the end of its second Sunday (15th May), 24 had crossed the prestigious $1.5 Million mark, making it a hit in the Unites States of America and Canada.
Cine Galaxy, the company that has distributed the movie in North America is understandably elated over the film's performance and is now looking forward to release superstar Rajinikanth's Kabali.
"The biggest asset of the film ('24') is proving to be the novel genre and the freshness of the film. The audiences are also going gaga over all the three avatars which Suriya dons in the film and are saying this is his best performance ever. Reason enough to watch, isn't it?
Meanwhile, CineGalaxy Inc.. has also begun preparations for a grand release of Superstar Rajinikanth's 'Kabali'. We'll soon give you updates," Cine Galaxy posted on its social media page.
