Parasite Expanding To More Theatres After Historic Oscars Wins

After winning four Academy Awards at the 92nd Oscars, including Best Picture, director Bong Joon Ho’s thriller Parasite will play in more theatres this weekend in the US.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Parasite will play in as many as 2,000 more locations across America, which is more than double its current reach.

Parasite is currently the fifth highest-grossing non-English language movie of all time in the US with some $35.5 million in box office receipts so far. It currently trails Pan’s Labyrinth ($37.6 million), Instructions Not Included ($44.5 million), Hero ($53.7 million), Life is Beautiful ($57.2 million), and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon ($128.1 million).

Globally, Parasite has made more than $165 million, including $71 million from South Korea alone.

Parasite won Best Picture at the Oscars and made history as the first non-English language movie to win the award. It also won Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature to claim more Academy awards (4 in total) than any other movie this year.

You don’t have to go to a theatre to see Parasite, however, as the movie is also available through video-on-demand platforms around the world.
