International Box Office: Spidey Reboot Ensnares First Place

July 11th, 2012

After a narrow opening last weekend, The Amazing Spider-Man expanded worldwide this weekend taking first place with $127.49 million on 18,343 screens in 74 markets for an early total of $200.86 million internationally and $337.89 million worldwide. If it didn't make another dollar at the box office, it would still likely break even early in its home market run. The film's biggest opening was in the U.K. where it dominated the box office with $17.19 million on 552 screens. That is like opening with about $100 million here.

It was also a powerhouse in Russia with $9.50 million on 1,500 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $10.45 million and in Mexico with $9.26 million on 2,633. The Amazing Spider-Man wasn't as strong in Brazil, but still finished first with $7.04 million on 876 screens. Spain brought in $3.93 million on 839 and in Italy it earned $3.34 million on 944 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $5.52 million. In all of those markets it opened in first place. It had to settle for second place in France with $6.47 million on 841 screens and in Australia with $5.54 million on 581 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $7.43 million.

The Amazing Spider-Man also remained in first place in South Korea with $7.84 million on 896 screens over the weekend and now has $25.63 million after two weeks of release. It repeated on top of the chart in Japan with $4.55 million on 1,090 over the weekend for a total of $20.66 million after two. However, it was pushed into second place in Germany with $3.28 million on 667 screens over the weekend for a total of $9.31 million after two weeks of release.

Ice Age: Continental Drift added $82.43 million on 11,050 screens in 49 markets for a total of $200.11 million internationally. The film opened in first place in Germany with $11.17 million on 820 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $14.76 million. It also remained in first place in France with $8.05 million on 841 screens over the weekend for a total of $21.29 million after two. It was pushed into second place in Mexico with $6.51 million on 2,011 screens over the weekend, but its running tally is still an amazing $26.88 million. Family films tend to really thrive in this market. In Brazil, it also slipped to second place, but pulled in $5.55 million on 864 screens over the weekend for a total of $17.39 million after two weeks of release. The film opened in the U.K. and Russia this weekend, while it has yet to debut in Italy, South Korea, and other major markets.

Painted Skin: The Resurrection earned $36.85 million on 6 markets for a total of $84.67 million. Most of this came from China, but we don't have exact numbers for individual markets.

Bol Bachchan opened in fourth place with $11.40 million on 2,774 screens in 8 markets. This is a solid opening for an Indian film.

Ted shot into the top five during its second weekend of release with $11.11 million on 466 screens in 3 markets for a very early total of $15.55 million. This includes a first place performance in Australia with $8.89 million on 365 screens over the weekend. It now has $13.35 million in that market, including last week's limited roll-out. It is still too early to tell where it will end, but this is an amazing start.

Snow White And The Huntsman hit a major milestone this weekend with $8.2 million on 4,268 million on 57 markets for totals of $204.11 million internationally and $353.87 million worldwide. The film was unreasonably expensive to make, but it will earn a profit very early in its home market run.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted fell to seventh place with $8.10 million on 6,093 screens in 42 markets for a total of $259.60 million internationally and $455.50 million worldwide. It might drop out of the top ten next weekend, but it has yet to open in Spain, Japan, Italy, Australia, Germany, the U.K., etc. so it will return.

Deranged opened in second place in South Korea and eighth place internationally with $7.18 million on 756 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $8.37 million.

Caught In The Web opened in ninth place internationally with $7.06 million, all of which came from China. No other details were announced.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter rounded out the top ten with $5.29 million on 2,768 screens in 24 markets for an international total of $25.29 million after three weeks of release. The film cost $69 million to make, so it is going to need a lot of help to break even.

The Avengers nearly fell out of the top 40, but it still added $623,000 on 794 screens in 36 markets for totals of $843.3 million internationally and $1.454 billion worldwide. It will make a couple million more internationally and several million more worldwide, but that won't change the final box office by any significant amount.
