Justin Bieber just continues to roll. The teen star’s recent paramount film “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” surpassed Michael Jackson’s posthumous film “This Is It” over the weekend to become the most successful concert-themed movie at the U.S. box office.
“Never Say Never” grossed $72.2 million through Sunday, topping Sony’s Sony’s “This Is It” which grossed $72.1 million to date.
However, This Is It still holds the worldwide record, having grossed $189.1 million internationally for a global total of $261.2 million, which is a feat because concert films usually perform poorly overseas.
Paramount insiders believe Justin Bieber could ultimately earn $20 million internationally. His current gross is $10.8, which is a solid number in comparison to the Jonas Brothers ($4 million) and Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour ($5 million).
