Seoul — It has been reported that BLACKPINK The Movie is the highest-grossing event cinema release of 2021.
CJ 4DPLEX and Trafalgar Releasing announced in Aug that BLACKPINK’s new movie has become the highest-grossing event cinema release of 2021.
A report by Music Week showed that BLACKPINK The Movie which was first released as a limited engagement on Aug 4, has already grossed $4.8 million (SGD6 million) from almost 100 territories.
The movie follows the lives of the quartet and their concert performances in celebration of BLACKPINK’s fifth anniversary.
It has surpassed 500,000 moviegoers worldwide—the highest number of admissions for any event cinema release this year.
The movie is scheduled to be released in additional countries towards the end of Aug as local COVID-19 restrictions are lifted in Southeast Asia.

On its opening night, “BLACKPINK The Movie” hit No. 6 at the U.S. box office and earned the second-highest per-screen average, bested only by “Jungle Cruise.”
In Mexico, the film topped the box office on Aug 4 and has since drawn over 120,000 moviegoers, according to Soompi.
Congratulations to BLACKPINK on the success of their new film!
