Washington: The movie ' American Sniper' has set new Super Bowl weekend record with 31.8 million dollars earnings, it has been reported.
The movie is nearing the 250 million dollars mark, the Fox News reported.
According to estimates, Clint Eastwood film narrowly surpassed the previous top Super Bowl weekend draw at the North American box office. The concert film 'Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour' opened with 31.1 million dollars against the NFL's big game in 2008.
If it continues on this torrid clip, Clint Eastwood 's biopic of Chris Kyle could challenge 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1' as the highest grossing 2014 release and will pass 'The Matrix Reloaded' to become the second biggest R-rated release in history.
It's earned 248.9 million dollars, an unbelievable result for an adult drama about such hard-hitting topics as war and its psychological effects.
