A Rainy Day in New York is reported to have amassed more than $340,000 (£279,000) in South Korea since its release on 6 May, which puts it in the top spot due to the fact that cinemas around the world are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Box Office Mojo, which is usually a reliable source, places the film far ahead of its closest competitors, The Wretched ($69,000/£57,000 in the US), La Belle Epoque ($35,000/£29,000 in Australia) and the Pixar film Onward ($17,000/£14,000 in Norway).
A Rainy Day in New York was shelved amid accusations of sexual assault against Allen, which prompted Chalamet, Gomez and Rebecca Hall to donate a part of their salary to charity.
Hall admitted to feeling “regret” over working with Allen.
“I’d love to see it. People worked really hard and put a lot in, obviously himself included,” he told the The New York Times in 2018.
The actor said he preferred to stay silent regarding the accusations against Allen.
A Rainy Day in New York, which has so far earned approximately $20.9m (£17.1m) after being released in other territories, will be released in the UK on 5 June.
