International Box Office: Oz Still Powerful

March 21st, 2013

Oz the Great and Powerful remained in first place with $48.2 million on 10,433 screens in 55 markets for totals of $138.6 million internationally and $282.7 million worldwide. The film took top spot in France with a hair under $5.00 million on 620 screens. During its second weekend in Russia, the film added $4.93 million on 1,137 screens for a total of $21.63 million so far. At this pace, it should have no trouble earning a profit. The only question is whether or not it will get there before it reaches the home market.

A Good Day to Die Hard reached $200 million internationally with $20.47 million on 8,966 screens in 50 markets over the weekend for totals of $201.32 million internationally and $266.79 million worldwide. The film opened in China with $15.7 million on 5,009 screens, which was enough for first place. The film will cross $300 million worldwide, which is enough to earn a profit, eventually, but not enough to keep the franchise going.

Jack The Giant Slayer leaped into third place with $11.1 million on 3,750 screens in 25 markets for an international total of $36.5 million after three weeks of release. The film earned first place in Mexico with $4.03 million on 581 screens over the weekend, while it had to settle for second place in Spain with just $1.29 million on 461. The film has $9.66 million in Australia, including $3.09 million on 558 screens this past weekend.

Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters fell from second place to fourth with $6.32 million on 2,397 screens in 39 markets for totals of $148.88 million internationally and $203.55 million worldwide. Unless it cost more to advertise than it cost to make, this is enough to break even.

Princess And 7 Kung Fu Masters entered the top five with $4.98 million in 4 markets for a two-week total of $10.33 million. Like most Chinese films, no other details were given.

Jappeloup opened in second place in France with $4.41 million on 533 screens. Adding in a couple smaller markets and the film managed sixth place internationally with $4.58 million on 564 screens in three markets.

Doraemon: Nobita In The Secret Gadgets Museum remained in first place in Japan while it slipped a spot to seventh place internationally. Over the weekend, it added $4.51 million on 353 screens to its running tally, which now sits at $12.97 million.

Silver Linings Playbook was right behind with $4.48 million on 1,885 screens in 44 markets for totals of $84.94 million internationally and $209.49 million worldwide. The film is rapidly running out of markets left to open in, but it has made about ten times what it cost to make, so unless it cost five times more to advertise than it cost to make, it has already broken even.

Warm Bodies entered the top ten for the first time in its run with $4.33 million on 1,089 screens in 25 markets for a total of $33.90 million. The film earned first place in South Korea with $2.81 million on 475 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $3.31 million. It made enough money domestically to cover its entire production, so even a token amount internationally will be enough to ensure a profit sometime on the home market.

Upside Down fell from fifth to tenth with $4.31 million in 3 markets for a total of $23.56 million. It struggled here, to be polite, and it reportedly cost $60 million to make, so it will need to continue to perform internationally if it wants any shot at breaking even.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey fell out of the top 30 with $1.5 million on 965 screens in 24 markets for totals of $711.7 million internationally and $1.014 billion worldwide.
