The Parasite train keeps on gaining traction, with Bong Joon Ho’s four-time Oscar-winning dark comedy crossing $50 million right now at the domestic box office. But the real question is, can it beat Life Is Beautiful’s box office gross of $57M? If it maintains its momentum, signs are pointing to yes.

As its Imax run comes to an end and it dropped from 1,806 to 1,324 theaters, Parasite is still showcasing its post-Oscars staying power as it has already surpassed Mexico’s Instructions Not Included ($44.4M) to become the fourth highest-grossing foreign language/international film at the domestic box office — and it is right behind Ang Lee’s four-time Oscar-winning martial arts epic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon ($128.1M). Parasite is hot on the heels of Miramax’s Hero ($53.7M) from 2000 as well as the aforementioned Oscar winner Life is Beautiful from 1997.
