South Korean pop phenomenon BTS is once again making noise at the box office.
Bring the Soul: The Movie, the third film about the seven-piece boy band, opened to $4.4 million in the U.S. and $8.2 million overseas for a global total of $12.6 million since rolling out midweek, a noisy number for a special-event release. (The pic even came in No. 10 for the weekend in the U.S. with $2.3 million.)
The behind-the-scenes doc opened just as Big Hit Entertainment, the K-pop band’s management company and record label, announced via Twitter that BTS will be taking an “official and extended period of rest and relaxation.”
Bring the Soul follows the group at the end of their Love Yourself tour in Europe. Trafalgar Releasing partnered with Big Hit Entertainment in bringing Bring the Soul to the big screen.
