BTS’s “Burn The Stage: The Movie” To Return To Theaters For Encore Run After Box Office Success
BTS’s “Burn the Stage: The Movie” will have another run of screenings in theaters around the world!
On November 23, Variety published an exclusive report that announced that the film will be getting a global theatrical encore.
Distributor Trafalgar Releasing has stated that encore showings of “Burn the Stage: The Movie” will be in 1,400 cinemas around the world, on 2,696 screens in total. The encore run will start in the United Kingdom this weekend, and screenings in other territories will happen over the next few weeks. New screenings will be in the United States, Australasia, Germany, Latin America, Indonesia, and more, and the film will also be showing in India for the first time.
Fans in the United States will be able to get tickets for the encore December 5 – 6 run of the film starting on Monday, and “Burn the Stage: The Movie” will be back in the AMC, Regal, and Cinemark theater chains.
When “Burn the Stage: The Movie” was released for a limited run earlier this month, it set a new record by becoming the highest-attended event-cinema concert production of all time, beating the previous record-holder “One Direction: Where We Are.” It recorded 1.4 million worldwide admissions, while One Direction’s concert film reached 1.2 million admissions in 2014.
Variety is predicting that the encore run of “Burn the Stage: The Movie” will allow the film to grab an all-time box office record for an event-cinema movie. It previously earned $14 million in theaters, as “One Direction: Where We Are” did before, and its encore screenings will most likely allow it to surpass the previous record.
“Burn the Stage: The Movie” gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at BTS’s 2017 “WINGS” world tour, featuring both new and re-edited footage from BTS’s original YouTube Red series “Burn the Stage.”
