Paramount Pictures' highly anticipated biographical film, BOB MARLEY: ONE LOVE, has struck a resounding chord at the box office, raking in an impressive $50 million-plus during its compelling six-day run from Valentine's Day to Presidents Day. Monday's estimates soared beyond expectations, reaching a staggering $52 million domestically, surpassing the initial Sunday estimate of $51 million. The film's remarkable performance was propelled by a groundbreaking $14 million on Valentine's Day, a strategic move lauded by rival studios as a clever choice to build momentum.

Throughout the four-day Presidents Day weekend, ONE LOVE continued its allure, drawing audiences with a robust $34.1 million.

On the international stage, ONE LOVE demonstrated its global appeal, accumulating an impressive $29 million for a combined global launch exceeding $80 million—an extraordinary achievement against its $70 million budget. The film's premiere at No. 1 in 13 markets emphasizes its widespread popularity. Setting new opening day records for a music biopic in key territories like the United Kingdom and France further solidifies its cultural impact. In Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae legend Bob Marley, ONE LOVE created history with the biggest film opening ever, a testament to the enduring legacy and influence of the iconic musician.

Paramount's ambitious portrayal of Bob Marley's life and legacy has resonated profoundly with audiences worldwide, transcending borders and captivating hearts. As ONE LOVE continues its triumphant journey at the box office, it not only celebrates the remarkable odyssey of a music icon but also pays homage to the cultural richness and universal themes embodied by Bob Marley's timeless music.
