Antariksham is underperforming at the USA Boxoffice and is likely to end up as a Flop in North America.
The movie did decent pre-release business in the USA, with the maker’s bagging around 3cr from selling the rights and combined with the promotions and print expenses the cost went up to around 3.2cr for distributors.
It needs around $1M to Break Even(B.E), however after the first two days, it seems that target is out of reach unless it shows excellent trending from here.
Antariksham 2 Days USA Collections
Premieres – $90,464
Day 1 – $63,356
Day 2 – $77,109
TOTAL – $230,929*(₹0.72cr)
Despite having a successful director and an in-form Varun, the movie failed to pull in the audience to the theaters. With the overseas audience having better accessibility to space films in Hollywood, they might have stayed away from Antariksham.
The other possible reasons for the failure could be the competition from other notable releases Padi Padi Leche Manasu and KGF. However, all the films are underperforming with KGF performing the best.
Antariksham seems to be heading towards $500k in the full run, which is very poor considering Varun Tej’s previous ventures. The movie is also struggling big time in the Telugu States collecting just around 1.2cr on the first day.
