Tillu Square debuts better than Crew at the North America box office with $1.8 mn.

This year marks the debut of two Indian films in the top 10 ranking of the week's highest-grossing movies at the North American box office. The Telugu movie "Tillu Square" secured the 8th spot, while the Hindi film "Crew" claimed the 9th position. Both films have garnered attention from audiences and critics alike.

"Tillu Square," directed by Mallik Ram, serves as a sequel to "DJ Tillu" and earned $1.8 million during its opening weekend. Starring Siddhu Jonnalagadda and Neha Shetty, it has drawn significant interest. Meanwhile, "Crew," directed by Rajesh A Krishnan, raked in $1.5 million and features a stellar cast including Kareena Kapoor, Tabu, and Kriti Sanon, receiving positive responses from viewers and reviewers.

In contrast, the Godzilla-King Kong collaboration exceeded expectations with "Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire" roaring to an $80 million opening across 3,861 screens in North America. This monster merger, starring Rebecca Hall and Brian Tyree Henry, secured the second-highest opening of the year, falling just shy of the debut of "Dune: Part 2." Initial projections for "Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire" were around $50 million, making its actual performance even more remarkable.

Mary Parent, chairman of worldwide production for Legendary, described the film as a cinematic spectacle, emphasizing its mythic quality and the unprecedented actions of its iconic characters. The movie's success underscores the enduring appeal of these legendary monsters to audiences worldwide.

Despite stiff competition, including "Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire" and "Dune: Part Two," the cinematic landscape remains promising, with upcoming releases like "The Fall Guy" and sequels to popular franchises poised to captivate audiences. While industry insiders remain cautiously optimistic, surpassing the record-breaking year of 2023 appears unlikely, given the unique success of films like "Barbenheimer," which achieved global box office success exceeding $1 billion alongside other notable releases like "Oppenheimer."

Here's the updated ranking:

  1. Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire - $80 million
  2. Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire - $15.7 million
  3. Dune: Part Two - $11.1 million
  4. Kung Fu Panda 4 - $10.2 million
  5. Immaculate - $3.3 million
  6. Arthur the King - $2.4 million
  7. Late Night With the Devil - $2.2 million
  8. Tillu Square - $1.8 million
  9. Crew - $1.5 million
  10. Imaginary - $1.4 million
