Following its historical Best Picture win at the 2020 Oscars, Neon is doubling the North American theatrical release of Bong Joon-ho‘s Parasite to more than 2,000 locations. Reports state that the South Korean dark comedy thriller raked in $1.6 million USD at 1,060 domestic theaters during Oscar weekend, increasing its cumulative earnings to $35.5 million USD since October 2019.

Despite Parasite’s availability on DVD, the trend of Best Picture winners usually receive a significant increase in the box office. It is currently the fifth top-grossing foreign language film in North America, trailing behind Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon with $128.1 million USD, Life Is Beautiful with $57.2 million USD, Hero with $53.7 million USD, Instructions Not Included with $44.5 million USD and Pan’s Labyrinth with $37.6 million USD.
