US BO: SLN Crosses 1M, AVPL at Half Million

Two Sankranthi biggies are doing good at the US Box office with premieres so far, even with the heavy slow-down of our films overseas.

Sarileru Neekevvaru crossed 1 Million mark on Saturday with premieres and first-day advance bookings, marking Mahesh's 9th consecutive 1 Million film overseas. Sarileru pulled $300,390 from 236 collections by 9 am PST today and the premieres collected 736K.

Allu Arjun's Ala Vaikuntapurram lo too started off with a bang. It registered $429,456 from 141 locations in the US by 9:18 AM PST, heading towards a 600K by the end of Saturday. If the overseas distribution can expand the number of theaters, Ala Vaikunttapurram lo will mark a 700K with premieres.
