xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage box office numbers over the weekend are estimated to be $20 million

Highlights

  • M Night Shyamalan's Split beat Deepika's xXx 3 at the box office
  • Deepika and Vin Diesel's film is doing better in other countries
  • "Thanks to all of our kick ass fans for making xXx #1," tweeted Deepika
Deepika Padukone's Hollywood debut xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage has failed to endear itself to the American box office despite the presence of Vin Diesel, who plays the lead role of Xander Cage. xXx 3 has charted at the second spot behind M Night Shyamalan's Split, making an estimated $20 million in its first weekend, according to international box office tracker Exhibitor Relations. Both films opened together. Its stated budget is $85 million, reports Exhibitor Relations, which is multifold times more than Split's $5 million making cost. xXx 3 is trailed in the top five at the US box office by Hidden Figures, Sing and La La Land, all of which are several weeks in. xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage released in India a week ago and also performed poorly.
Exhibitor Relations states the weekend collections in USA as:
 
In other countries, it's doing better.
 

It's not clear if India is one of these 32 markets - it could well be because the film has performed comparatively better than OK Jaanu, the Bollywood film it released with here. Box Office India reports xXx 3's total upto its second Sunday as Rs 32.69 crore. It ended week one at Rs 26.09 crore. OK Jaanu's earnings with its second weekend are Rs 19.81 crore, reports Box Office India.
In relative terms, xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage's ticket sales are below expectations but the film is still the top performer in several countries. Hence this tweet, retweeted by Deepika:
 
Deepika Padukone, 31, stars as xXx unit team member Serena Unger alongside a cast that includes Ruby Rose, Samuel L Jackson and Nina Dobrev. After skipping the second film in the series, Vin Diesel reprises his role as former stuntman and reluctant government agent Xander Cage.
