The Elton John biopic passed the $100 million mark globally by the end of this weekend.
Box Office Mojo reported, “Rounding out the top five [movies] is Paramount’s Rocketman, which dropped 4 percent in its second weekend for an estimated $14 million (in the United States). The film’s domestic cume now stands at just over $50 million after 10 days in release. Internationally, the film added $13 million from 50 markets for an overseas cume that now totals just over $51 million and a worldwide gross over $101 million.”
This means that Rocketman now enters the Top 10 list of bestselling music biopics of all time. The film comes in at No. 9 on the list and might rise before the end of its theater run.
