The Nun II faces box office challenge as HD leak hits Hindi version. Piracy woes continue.
The highly anticipated horror sequel, The Nun II, directed by Michael Chaves and starring Taissa Farmiga and Storm Reid, hit theaters on September 7, claiming the top spot in its debut weekend at the international box office, particularly in North America. Despite grossing an estimated $32.6 million over three days, falling short of its predecessor’s debut, the film has maintained a solid global performance. Unfortunately, The Nun II Hindi version faced a setback as it got leaked in HD quality on various platforms, including Torrent websites like Tamilrockers, Telegram, and Movierulz.
Despite garnering positive reviews from both critics and audiences, the unauthorized release of the film on its first day is expected to impact its box office revenue worldwide. The leak of The Nun II is part of a concerning trend, as piracy websites like Tamilrockers, Telegram, and Movierulz continue to jeopardize the success of new releases. This is not an isolated incident, as several other films, such as Jawan, Gadar 2, Kushi, Dream Girl 2, and others, have fallen victim to piracy earlier this year.
Despite efforts to take strict actions against these piracy websites, they persistently reemerge with new domains each time they are blocked. Tamilrockers, in particular, has a history of leaking films just hours before their theatrical release, causing significant challenges for the film industry. The impact of such leaks is evident in the case of The Nun II, with its India collection at Rs 13.7 crore and a global total exceeding Rs 710 crore.
