International Box Office: Feeling Adventurous

November 9th, 2011

The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn remained on top of the international chart during its second weekend of release, while it crossed the $100 million milestone over the weekend. It expanded into more than two dozen new markets, but most were of the smaller variety. Overall, it made $38.98 million on 7,103 screens in 45 markets, for a total of $123.55 million so far. Russia was the only real exception, where it opened in second place with $4.81 million on 788 screens. It plummeted 74% in France, but still added $6.99 million on 850 screens for a two-week total of $33.44 million. On the other hand, it remained in first place in Spain with $5.19 million on 819 screens over the weekend, for a total of $16.62 million after two. At this point, $200 million internationally is a given, which is likely close to the film's total budget. If it can close close to that figure here, it will break even before the lucrative home market.

In Time rose to second place with $17.00 million on 4,002 screens in 52 markets, for a total of $38.50 million after just two weeks of release. It opened in second place in both the U.K., with $3.01 million on 428 screens, and in Mexico, with $914,000 on 513 screens. On the other hand, it struggled in Brazil with just $578,000 on 124. It remained strong in Russia with $4.18 million on 903 screens over the weekend, for a total of $11.12 million after two.

Puss in Boots remained in third place with $16.91 million on 1,249 screens in 4 markets, for a very early total of $40.71 million. The vast majority of this was earned in Russia, where it made $15.35 million on 1199 screens, for a total of $36.53 million after two.

Intouchables opened in first place in its native France with $13.84 million on 508 screens over the weekend, for a total opening of $14.50 million. It also opened in neighboring Switzerland earning third place with $257,000 on 12 screens over the weekend, for a total of $279,000.

Paranormal Activity 3 was down just 6% and remained in fifth place with $13.64 million on 3,547 screens in 44 markets, for a total of $76.70 million. It opened in second place in Germany with $2.86 million on 257 screens over the weekend, for a total opening of $3.22 million. It also opened in Japan with $778,000 on 152 screens over the weekend, for a total opening of $1.88 million.

Real Steel held steady in sixth place with $11.26 million on 4,283 screens in 36 markets, for a total of $128.57 million internationally and $207.35 million worldwide. It earned third place in Germany with $2.44 million on 484 screens over the weekend, for a total opening of $2.67 million. At this pace, getting to $250 million worldwide is the clear goal and it is on pace to show a profit very early in its home market run.

Tower Heist opened in seventh place with $9.25 million on 1,969 screens in 22 markets. It earned third place in the U.K., with $2.32 million on 416 screens. It did a bit better in Spain, relatively speaking, where it grabbed second place with $1.57 million on 299 screens. It only managed fifth place in Germany with $1.52 million on 461 screens. Overall these are rather mixed results and, with a production budget of $85 million, it will need to perform better than this.

Johnny English: Reborn now has more internationally than the original finished with in total. It added $7.64 million on 3,419 screens in 50 markets and now has a total of $137.45 million.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes earned ninth spot earning $7.56 million on 2,982 screens in 5 markets for a total of $294.90 million. It should reach $300 million shortly.
