Box office collections can often be unpredictable, but some films, through a blend of clever marketing, audience anticipation, and quality storytelling, manage to set a pace that’s tough to match. Gran Turismo, based on a true story, is proving to be one such film. As it speeds through the international cinemas, its collection is becoming a testament to its universal appeal. Having garnered a whopping $6.3 million over this past weekend, Gran Turismo has now raised its international collection bar to an impressive $22.7 million. This uptick in collection is even more commendable considering that in its second weekend in many markets, it faced a mere 37% drop.
A comprehensive look at its screen presence reveals the film’s massive reach: it’s currently playing on over 4300 screens across 34 markets. The top markets providing the thrust include the United Arab Emirates with a noteworthy surge of 36%. Kuwait follows closely, albeit with a decrease of 12%, and other major markets like Qatar, Saudi Arabia, France, Hungary, Kazakhstan, Australia, and Portugal have shown promising holds, as per Collider.
And it doesn’t stop there. Film enthusiasts are keenly awaiting Gran Turismo‘s release in major regions like Brazil, Mexico, China, Japan, Italy, and South Korea. With the 25th August North American release date of Gran Turismo nearing, the focus is squarely on its potential success in the US and Canada.
Neill Blomkamp, revered for his directorial masterpiece District 9, is the driving force behind this cinema spectacle. The script springs to life from the pens of Jason Hall and Zach Baylin, with foundational input in story development from Jason Hall and Alex Tse. Their combined craftsmanship narrates the staggering journey of British Racing Driver Jann Mardenborough, who co-produced and showcased his prowess as a stunt driver for the film.
The Gran Turismo Phenomenon: From Gamer to Racer
Bringing to screen a true testament of determination, the film depicts Jann, played by Archie Madekwe, a video game enthusiast whose unparalleled skills in the ‘Gran Turismo‘ video game send him on a real-world racing adventure. Thanks to the GT Academy – a collaborative initiative by Nissan’s racing wing and the video game’s developers – Jann’s virtual expertise is put to the ultimate test. The climax? His thrilling participation in the arduous 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
As the North American audience waits with bated breath, the film boasts a stellar ensemble cast. Accompanying Madekwe are the likes of Orlando Bloom, David Harbour, Darren Barnet, Djimon Hounsou, and, in a surprising yet exciting addition, former Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell, better known to racing enthusiasts as the spouse of Formula 1 Red Bull Team Principal Christian Horner.
This is not just a film; it’s a testament to dreams turning to reality. As Gran Turismo races ahead in international markets, its trajectory serves as a reminder that passion, combined with opportunity, can create wonders on and off the screen. In anticipation of the North American release, we recommend movie buffs to whet their appetites by watching the gripping trailer of Gran Turismo.
