While Mr. DiCaprio’s latest feature actually couldn’t keep up The Eras Tour On home soil, it surpassed the all-time concert film on a global scale, with Scorsese’s latest acclaimed drama earning an estimated $44 million in each market where it was released, compared to the $42 million earned by Swift’s box office sensation.
And yet, none of them can lay claim to being the biggest number one box office hit, and as mentioned, it’s all thanks to merit Lion. The Tamil-language action thriller had an incredible opening both in its native India and abroad, raking in $48.5 million and establishing itself as a new front-runner in the feature film industry.
Also known as Leo: Damn cute In certain markets, local superstar Vijay plays the titular hero, a mild-mannered cafe owner who ends up becoming a small town hero. However, his good deed sets off a chain reaction that ties back to a previous life that he tried to leave behind. This is both the third part of a cinematic universe and a comic adaptation in the broadest sense of the word.
Lion is the latest chapter in the Lokesh Cinematic Universe and is heavily inspired by A history of violenceSo you have to wonder what would happen if someone told Scorsese a comic book movie that was part of a universe and featured a main character named Leo Flower Moon Killer from the top of the global box office.
