All - Time No.1 in USA Opening Weekend Box Office
In USA, the movie released in 240+ screens and grossed $3,616,002 in the opening weekend. Kabali is the first Tamil movie to garner $3 Million+ revenue in the Opening Weekend. In USA, all the first 3 spots of the opening weekend record table is now occupied by Rajinikanth films.
Record-breaking opening in UK; but is break-even possible?
While the USA and other overseas locations like Malaysia, Singapore and Gulf nations are likely to turn profitable for the distributors, UK & other European countries' distributors are still finding it tough to break-even. Kabali took a grandeur opening in the UK by collecting £292,295 (including Tamil and Telugu versions). Considering the price at which the movie was sold, Kabali needs to generate another £80k to get a break-even, which is tough, say trade experts.
