In Brazil it was also the biggest opening for a Luhrmann film and both followed House of Gucci and Rocketman, yielding $970k on 825 screens. For Korea, the film was a bit behind Rocketman but brought in $443k on 665 screens.


There are three final markets yet to receive the film and Elvis will open there on July 21. So the box office totals for the film are far from done and the last three markets could continue to set new records for Luhrmann as a director in these countries and so on and so forth.

Elvis tells us the story of the King of Rock-n-Roll played by the incredible Austin Butler and gives us a glimpse into Elvis’s relationship with music, his family, and his partner Colonel Tom Parker (played by Tom Hanks). The film has a fun new take on the Elvis Presley classics that we have come to love and know and gives us a glimpse into the life Elvis lived in a way that only Luhrmann could have given us. As such, it is not surprising that it still has impressive remains and is acquiring new records for Luhrmann’s works in several countries.

Luhrmann is known for his films like Moulin Rouge!, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Julietand more recently the Leonardo DiCaprio-LED The Great Gatsby. So for Elvis to take the title as his biggest opening in both Brazil and Mexico is a pretty big deal.

It’ll be interesting to see how the film continues as it enters a month of opening here in the United States and entering the film’s final opening weekends.
