Film trade analyst Manobala Vijaybalan claimed that the film crossed ₹200 crore overseas but did not seem hopeful about its future. “#Leo WW Box Office. Joseph Vijay ENTERS the elite ₹ 200 cr club. Tomorrow will be crucial for the film. Post which the recovery would be difficult in overseas markets,” he wrote.
Things not looking promising for the future
Ramesh Bala, another film trade expert, shared more insight into the overseas market. “Overseas is a combination market.. In January of this year, #ThalapathyVijay 's #Varisu released.. It did $1.14 Million in USA.. In October, his #Leo is released.. It's nearing $4 Million in North America.. Has #ThalapathyVijay market grown suddenly in this 10 months in USA? No.. Because he does a movie with hot and happening Director #Lokesh Even #ChiyaanVikram 's Highest Grosser in International markets is with Director #Shankar - #IMovie. Hope we see more multistarrers and Hot combos in Indian Cinema to reach new milestones,” he wrote in a tweet.
He also mentioned that Leo has not been performing as well as Jailer at the US box office. “Saturday is typically the highest revenue generating day in USA #Leo has slowed down.. 1st Saturday Gross: #Jailer - $1 Million from USA #Leo - $515K at 10 PM EST from North America.”
Helmed by Lokesh Kanagraj, the film is headlined by Thalapathy Vijay and marks Sanjay Dutt's Tamil debut. He was previously seen in the Kannada film KGF: Chapter 2.
Earlier, the film's production firm, Seven Screen Studio, announced on its social media website that the Leo audio event had been cancelled. The announcement created a lot of anger among Vijay fans but Vijay's fans, who were upset, calmed down with the Leo movie trailer.
