8:55pm Wednesday 4th September 2013 in News
The One Direction film has made almost £3.5 million at the box office in the first weekend after its release. Figures from the British Film Institute (BFI) showed ticket sales of £3,471,872 for One Direction: This Is Us at the 476 cinemas that showed it in the UK.
It also raked in £11 million in its opening weekend in the US.
The 3D One Direction film is a behind-the-scenes look at the band as they embarked on their This Is Us world tour. Thousands of fans gathered in London’s Leicester Square last month to greet Louis Tomlinson, 21, Bradford’s Zayn Malik, 20, and 19-year-olds Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Niall Horan at the film’s world premiere.
