I guess I was a little conservative regarding PK‘s North American box office prospects after its first weekend. During the weekend of December 26-28, 2014, PK added another $1,642,262 from 289 theaters ($5,683 average), bringing its total to $7,785,486. That’s easily the best performance by a Hindi film in United States and Canada in 2014.
In fact, as of Wednesday, December 31, PK‘s total earnings stand at $8.3 million (according to SIMoviesUSA). That already puts it ahead of Dhoom 3‘s North American total of $8,090,250. Considering that PK won’t face competition from any new Hindi films until Tevar opens on January 9, $10 million seems within reach.
