The film “Jailer” directed by Nelson Dilipkumar, with Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi versions featuring Rajnikant, is set to release in cinemas worldwide on August 10. While pre-booking has already started in some regions, Tamil Nadu is yet to begin. The film’s initial screening is expected to take place in India and the United States at approximately the same time.
It’s fascinating to see that “Jailer” is doing well in pre-release business at the American box office. It has been one of Rajnikant’s strongest contenders for quite some time now.
The tremendous response to the trailer of “Jailer” indicates the anticipation for its global release.
According to early predictions, the film’s premiere could earn around $1 million at the box office. As per industry tracker Saiknik, the advance booking for “Jailer” has already crossed $400,000, with approximately 20,000 tickets sold until August 5.
With this achievement, “Jailer” has become the first South Indian film to cross the one-million-dollar mark at the premiere in North America. It has even surpassed the pre-booking earnings of Kamal Hassan’s “Vikram,” which was $325,000.
As “Jailer” is releasing on a Thursday, it is expected to have a long opening weekend since it will enjoy the Independence Day holiday on Tuesday, helping to strengthen its box office performance. While the trailer of Jailer has received a fantastic response, some people have noticed similarities with the 2021 Hollywood film “Nobody.” Starring Bob Odenkirk, the movie tells the story of a retired FBI agent living a peaceful life, often misunderstood by those around him.
When his family is threatened, his old instincts take over, turning him into a tough, skilled warrior. While “Jailer” seems to share a common theme with the original film, much cannot be determined until its official release.
