Number 3 at the box office: KPop Sensations BTS concert film earns $6.8 million in the United States


House business Number 3 at the Box Office: Concert Film by KPop Sensations BTS…

Yes, “The Batman” is at $238 million after this weekend.

And “Uncharted” went to $113 million.

But it’s the number 3 movie at the box office that should grab your attention. It was “BTS Permission to Dance on Stage Seoul – Live Viewing”.

With hits like “Butter” and “Dynamite,” Korean KPop sensations BTS (which stands for Buy This Soon) raked in $6.8 million over the weekend. The concert film was shown in 800 theaters where it earned $8,518 at each location. Ka ching!

“Permission to Dance” is by Trafalgar Releasing, which has had success with previous BTS concert films and those of other groups as well. “PTD” has a total worldwide take of $32.6 million, making it their biggest offering yet.

Will we adults ever see this movie? I do not think so. But that doesn’t matter. Kids love it, some kids, getting ready to spend tons more on BTS in the coming year.
