Burn The Stage: The Movie received its major event release date on November 15, and played in further showings over the weekend. The film will play some encore screenings next weekend.
It reached the number 10 spot in the US box office chart this weekend with $3.6m from 617 sites, breaking the record for the highest-grossing music event cinema release in the country.
In the UK, it charted at number six this weekend with takings of $830,000.
India is not far behind, with the metros getting ready for an INOX-exclusive premier on the November 25.
In an attempt to the access the craze, Pritha Mallick from our Chennai newsroom tried to book a ticket but was beaten to it by fans across the city who made sure the tickets were sold out with the first 43 seconds.
The movie reaches India nearly a week after the rest of the world due to troubles with Central Board of Film Certification who asked for certain scenes to be refined.
We regret we cannot release same in India unless it is certified by censor same is awaited . Please have patience our team would update once we get permissions.
