International Top Five: Clash Cracks Another Milestone

April 28th, 2010

Clash of the Titans remained in first place with $34.12 million on 9703 screens in 63 markets for a total of $244.18 million internationally and $389.74 million worldwide. Since last week, the film crossed $200 million internationally. It will cross $400 million worldwide before the weekend. It opened in Japan over the weekend, earning fourth place with $3.01 million on 479 screens, including previews, while it debuted in first place in the United Arab Emirates with $1.1 million on 54 screens. Meanwhile, it added $3.67 million on 992 screens in Mexico for a total of $13.69 million after two weeks of release, which is more than How To Train Your Dragon has earned there in a month... and Mexico tends to reward family films. At this point, $300 million internationally is practically guaranteed, while it might reach $500 million worldwide, if Iron Man 2 doesn't steal away too many screens.

Alice in Wonderland remained in second place with $27.40 million on 6799 screens in 45 markets for a total of $549.33 million internationally and $876.86 million worldwide. The film was aided by a first place, $6.07 million opening on 356 screens in Brazil, which is about the same as a $100 million opening here. While that was impressive, the film's biggest market of the weekend was in Japan, where it was down just 22%, adding $10.88 million on 877 screens over the weekend for a total of $37.59 million after just two weeks of release. It also remained in first place in Spain with $5.29 million on 646 screens over the weekend for a total of $17.69 million after two. At this point, reaching $600 million internationally is almost guaranteed. Becoming just the sixth film to reach $1 billion worldwide is possible. Again, it depends heavily on how much Iron Man 2 monopolizes theaters worldwide.

How To Train Your Dragon was well back in third place with $10.16 million on 5824 screens in 53 markets for a total of $193.09 internationally and $371.44 million worldwide. The film is still mostly coasting on holdovers and will continue to do so for the next few weeks before its next major string of major openings (China and South Korea at the end of May). The film will reach $200 million internationally and $400 million worldwide. It should come as no surprise that a sequel has just been announced (tentatively scheduled for 2013).

Camping 2 was right behind, with $9.93 million on 825 screens in 3 markets. In its native market, France, it dominated with $9.65 million on 781 screens, easily enough for first place and close to five times its nearest competitor (another local hit). In Belgium it had to settle for second place, but it was still strong at $189,000 on 27 screens. It placed fifth in Switzerland with $85,000 on 17 screens.

Kick-Ass entered the top five for the first time during its run, adding $8.03 million on 2736 screens in 27 markets for a total of $32.33 million internationally. That's almost as much as it has earned domestically so far. Granted, it has been in release twice as long internationally, but it has only opened in less than half of the major markets so it should have no trouble topping its domestic total overseas. This week it debuted in France with $1.99 million on 371 screens, which was enough for third place. On the other hand, it struggled in South Korea with $618,000 on 251 screens over the weekend and $707,000 in total. In Germany it also struggled, with just $506,000 on 359 screens over the weekend and $644,000 including previews. In both markets it placed fourth.
