In a surprising turn of events at the UAE box office, Rajinikanth’s latest Tamil-language action-thriller “Jailer” has taken the lead as the highest grossing film of 2023. Since its release on August 10, “Jailer” has raked in an impressive $6.44 million, overshadowing even the previous champion, Shah Rukh Khan’s “Pathan.” The latter had maintained its top spot with $6 million in collections throughout the first half of the year, despite the presence of high-profile Hollywood releases like Tom Cruise’s “Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One” and “The Super Mario Bros. Movie.” However, “Jailer” managed to surpass “Pathan,” pushing it to the second position.

The phenomenal success of “Jailer” was attributed to its magical opening weekend at the UAE box office. With a total of 243,123 cinema admissions during its three-day opening weekend, the film left Barbie in the dust with its 81,757 ticket receipts. Box Office Mojo’s calculations put Barbie’s opening weekend earnings at nearly $1.9 million in the UAE.

This triumph of “Jailer” extended beyond the UAE, as the film garnered widespread success across the GCC region. Distributors Home Screen Entertainment reported that the Sun Pictures production received more than 412,000 admissions within the first four days of release. This widespread acclaim prompted the film’s makers to schedule the release of its Hindi and Telugu-language versions in the UAE over the following weekend.

The release weekend of August 10 marked a significant event in the UAE’s cinema landscape. Devoted fans of Rajinikanth flocked to various Dubai cinemas on “Jailer’s” opening day, breaking into spontaneous song and dance to celebrate the film. Meanwhile, Barbie continued to captivate attention through its global viral marketing campaign and mall pop-ups.

Barbie’s delayed release in the UAE and Saudi Arabia did little to quell the excitement leading up to its screening. Roxy Cinemas, among other theaters, reported record-breaking ticket pre-sales for the film. This was particularly impressive considering the fierce competition from several Bollywood and South Indian releases, including the eagerly anticipated “Gadar 2,” starring Sunny Deol.

On the global stage, “Barbie” achieved remarkable success, crossing the $1.2 billion mark at the worldwide box office. Directed by Greta Gerwig, the fantasy comedy was on track to become Warner Bros.’ highest grossing film in the US, surpassing even Christopher Nolan’s iconic 2008 superhero film “The Dark Knight.”

Although Barbie’s enchanting appeal wasn’t enough to unseat Rajinikanth or Shah Rukh Khan in the UAE, the beloved toy princess seems destined to reign as the highest grossing film of 2023 in the US.

Meanwhile, Barbie’s global success and impending triumph in the US box office emphasize its enduring appeal to audiences worldwide.
