April 4th, 2010
The top five films on the international scene were published on Wednesday and can be found here.
The Bounty Hunter slipped a spot to sixth place with $6.33 million on 1671 screens in 29 markets for a total of $17.04 million. It opened in a number of markets, mostly on the smaller side. Its largest new market was Mexico, where it debuted in fourth place with $656,000 on 300 screens. Meanwhile, it added $1.49 million on 393 screens during its second weekend in the U.K. for a two-week total of $5.86 million. It was right behind in Russia with $1.40 million on 445 screens over the weekend for a total of $5.52 million after two.
- Green Zone remained in seventh place with $5.48 million on 2092 screens in 27 markets for a total of $28.51 million. In South Korea it opened in first place, but with just $1.72 million on 331 screens over the weekend for a total opening on $1.94 million. This is a middling result. It only placed first due a lot to the lack of substantial competition.
- Just Another Pandora's Box expanded into a number of smaller markets, earning $4.70 million on 444 screens in 5 markets for a total of $15.33 million.
- Heartbreaker added $4.02 million on 436 screens in its native France for a total of $13.62 million. It placed second in that market and ninth overall with $4.51 million on 457 screens in 3 markets for a total of $15.20 million.
- Remember Me reached the top ten for the first time, earning $4.44 million on 1986 screens in 25 markets for a total of $11.11 million. It placed fourth in Germany with $785,000 on 292 screens over the weekend and $839,000 in total. In Italy it placed fifth with $1.05 million on 335 screens, while in Mexico it only managed sixth place with $276,000 on 205 screens.
- Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang made its international debut in 11th place with $4.29 million on 736 screens in 4 markets. This includes the U.K., where it placed first with $3.88 million on 512 screens. This is about 20% less than the original made more than 4 years ago.
- 22 Bullets opened in 12th place internationally, with $3.72 million on 518 screens. Of that, $3.27 million was earned on 500 screens in France, which was enough for third place in its native market.
- Another French film, The Round Up, was next up with $3.18 million on 736 screens in 3 markets for a total of $19.25 million after three weeks of release. Of that total, $17.03 million was earned in France, including $2.79 million on 707 screens this past weekend.
- Tout Ce Qui Brille was the third French film, placing in 14th with $2.94 million on 312 screens in 3 markets. In France, it managed fifth place with $2.62 million on 294 screens.
- The Book of Eli fell to 15th place with $2.70 million on 1154 screens in 32 markets for a total of $47.37 million.
- The Irony Of Love opened in second place in Russia with $2.45 million on 517 screens and in third place in the Ukraine with $146,000 on 61 screens. Add it up and you get a 16th place debut with $2.60 million on 578 screens in these 2 markets.
- The Ghost Writer climbed ten spots to 17th place with $2.58 million on 968 screens in 11 markets over the weekend for a total of $16.02 million after six. It opened in second place in Spain with $1.22 million on 286 screens, which is better than average for its run so far.
- Doraemon The Movie: Nobita's Mermaid Legend remains undefeated in Japan, pulling in $2.45 million on 366 screens over the weekend for a total of $21.82 million after four.
- Sherlock Holmes is fading, but it still pulled in $2.18 million on 845 screens in 14 markets for a total of $304.42 million internationally and $512.81 million worldwide.
- Star Dogs 3D remained in fourth place in Russia, while it climbed to 20th place internationally with $2.01 million on 578 screens over the weekend for a total of $4.95 million. This represents a decline of less than 2%. That's amazing, especially for this market.
- Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief had the worse week-to-week decline in the top 30, down more than 10 spots and nearly 60%. It pulled in just shy of $2.00 million on 2570 screens in 42 markets for a total of $133.88 million internationally and $219.99 million worldwide. This is probably enough that the film will show a profit, eventually. But I doubt the studio will be itching to make a sequel.
- The Hurt Locker fell to 22nd place with $1.77 million on 692 screens in 33 markets for a total of $25.75 million internationally.
- It's Complicated added $1.75 million on 878 screens in 22 markets for a total of $105.37 million internationally and $218.08 million worldwide. The film is just wrapping up its run, but it is already a major hit and the studio should be more than happy with its worldwide box office.
- Cok Filim Hareketler Bunlar opened in 24th place with $1.73 million on 552 screens in 5 markets. In its native Turkey, it managed first place with $1.54 million of 476 screens.
- Happy Family debuted in third place in Italy with $1.67 million on 353 screens, enough for 25th place internationally.
- Dear John returned to the chart in 26th place with $1.64 million on 557 screens in 11 markets for a total of $11.17 million. It opened in third place in Spain with $878,000 on 206 screens.
- Pretty Cure All Stars DX 2 slipped to fourth place in Japan and 27th place internationally with $1.57 million on 160 screens over the weekend for a total of $6.52 million.
- Pistol Bandit Band fell a mere 4% during its second weekend in South Korea, adding $1.51 million on 328 screens over the weekend for a total of $4.16 million after two.
- The Men Who Stare At Goats nearly fell out of the top 30 with $1.39 million on 850 screens in 16 markets for a total of $34.92 million.
- Rounding out the top 30 was Liar Game: The Final Stage with $1.37 million on 283 screens over the weekend in Japan. It now has earned $19.17 million after four weeks of release.
