International Box Office: Mockingjay Maintains Milestone Pace

December 11th, 2014

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 poster

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 reached a couple of milestones hitting $500 million worldwide before the weekend and $300 million internationally during the weekend. Over the weekend, the film pulled in $32.9 million in 87 markets for three-week totals of $306.6 million internationally and $564.8 million worldwide. The film will top $600 million worldwide over the weekend, while it is on pace to top the original's worldwide total before the end of its run.

Fleet of Time opened in second place with $29 million, maybe. Chinese box office numbers are often confusing and the film might have made $33.07 million over the weekend, or that might be for the full week. Or perhaps it made $36.43 million for the full week. Now that the Chinese market is the biggest single market on the international box office, they really need to improve their reporting and standardize it.

Penguins of Madagascar remained in third place with $24.2 million in 52 markets for an international total of $94.9 million after four weeks of release. The film opened in third place in the U.K. with $2.47 million in 494 theaters. Its biggest market was Russia, where it remained in first place with $3.86 million on 2,217 screens over the weekend for a total of $14.76 million after two weeks of release.

Interstellar fell to fourth place with $23.5 million in 64 markets for totals of $435.1 million internationally and $593.5 million worldwide after a month of release. It had no major market openings this past weekend, but its run in China has reached $118.82 million so far.

Exodus: Gods and Kings opened in fifth place with $23.1 million in 11 markets. The film had a trio of number one openings in major markets, led by $6.2 million in South Korea. It also pulled in $4.5 million in Mexico and $3.8 million in Spain. On the other hand, it has to settle for second place in Australia with $2.3 million.

Paddington remained in sixth place with $13 million in 19 markets over the weekend for a total of $23 million after two weeks of release. It remained in first place in the U.K. with $6.02 million in 540 theaters over the weekend for a total of $16.21 million after two. The film also opened in the a number of other major markets, but we don't have totals for them.

The Crossing: Part 1 opened with $8.1 million over the weekend in China for a total opening of $18.62 million after six days of release.

Horrible Bosses 2 fell to eighth place with $7.6 million in 49 markets for a total of $23.4 million after two weeks of release. Its only major opening was Brazil, where it managed third place with $1.2 million.
