Animal vs Leo Movie review
As the countdown to the release of Ranbir Kapoor’s highly anticipated film “Animal” begins, the USA box office premieres advance booking has opened a window into the pre-sales performance, and the numbers indicate a trailing start compared to Thalapathy Vijay’s “Leo.” With 10 days left until its theatrical debut, “Animal” has registered pre-sales worth $50K, revealing a 91.8% decrease compared to the staggering numbers recorded by “Leo.”
The Tiger 3 Aftermath and Animal’s Decent Start
Following the hysteria of “Tiger 3,” the next big Bollywood release capturing attention is “Animal,” directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga. Despite the buzz generated by teasers, trailers, and song promos, the film’s pre-sales for premiere advance booking in the US seem to be off to a decent but not outstanding start. With 10 days left, the film has amassed $50K in pre-sales, with bookings available at 206 locations and approximately 3200 tickets sold.
While the numbers are gradually picking up, the initial figures may raise questions considering the anticipation surrounding the gangster drama. The film, featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Rashmika Mandanna, Anil Kapoor, and Bobby Deol, has yet to unleash its full potential in terms of pre-sales.

Comparing Numbers: Animal vs Leo
A film that set the benchmark for pre-sales in the USA box office is Lokesh Kanagaraj and Thalapathy Vijay’s “Leo.” With 10 days remaining before its release, “Leo” achieved remarkable pre-sales, selling around 29K tickets and accumulating a total worth of $670K. In stark contrast, “Animal” lags significantly behind with a disastrously lower pre-sales number, marking a 91.83% decrease compared to the success of “Leo.”
The comparison with other big releases is also evident in the context of Shah Rukh Khan’s “Jawan,” directed by Atlee. “Jawan” managed to secure pre-sales worth $210K for day 1, selling around 13K tickets with 11 days before its release. The common factor between “Animal” and “Jawan” lies in both being directed by South Indian directors—Sandeep Reddy Vanga and Atlee, respectively and featuring a South Indian superstar, Rashmika Mandanna in “Animal” and Nayanthara in “Jawan.”
The Hope for Improvement and Box Office Clash
While the pre-sales numbers for “Animal” may not be as promising as its predecessors, there is hope for improvement in the upcoming days. The film, slated for release on December 1, will face stiff competition from Vicky Kaushal’s “Sam Bahadur” at the box office. The clash between these two films will undoubtedly add an extra layer of excitement and anticipation among audiences, and the coming weeks will unfold the battle at the box office.
As “Animal” aims to leave its mark on the USA box office, the industry will closely monitor its performance against the impressive figures set by “Leo” and “Jawan.” The success or struggle of “Animal” in the pre-sales arena will play a crucial role in determining its fate as it enters the competitive landscape of theatrical releases. Fans of Ranbir Kapoor and Bollywood enthusiasts will be eager to witness whether “Animal” can roar louder in the coming days, proving its mettle on the big screen.
