BTS’s first-ever film “Burn the Stage: The Movie” has set a new record at the U.S. box office!
According to a report by Forbes, BTS’s new documentary film is now the highest-grossing event cinema musical production of all time. “Burn the Stage: The Movie” earned an impressive $1.2 million at the U.S. box office on just the first day of its release (Thursday, November 15), and it went on to rake in an additional $2.3 million over the three-day weekend.
In just four days, the movie managed to earn a staggering $3.54 million in the United States alone, officially breaking One Direction’s 2014 record for highest-grossing concert film.
“Burn the Stage: The Movie” also racked up $9.3 million in ticket sales outside of the United States.
The movie’s extraordinary success is especially remarkable considering that part of its footage has already aired through BTS’s original YouTube Red series “Burn the Stage,” which was released earlier this year.
Consisting of both new and re-edited footage from the original documentary, “Burn the Stage: The Movie” follows BTS during their 2017 “WINGS” world tour and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the group’s concerts and travels.

Watching this after watching the disaster of a film by the name of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald was the best decision I made this weekend ngl.
