International Details: Wonderful Milestone for Alice
May 9th, 2010
The top film on the international scene was published on Wednesday and can be found here.
With Iron Man 2 debuting over the past weekend, Alice in Wonderland had one last gasp before the onslaught of summer blockbusters. It remained in second place with $23.54 million on 4263 screens in 54 markets over the weekend for a total of $592.23 million after two months of release. Worldwide, the film now has $921.92 million, which means that over the weekend it became just the 14th film to cross the $900 million milestone. It has already overtaken Shrek 2 for 13th place. By now, it is likely already in the top ten all-time and has a nominal shot at $1 billion worldwide.
- Clash of the Titans fell from first to third with $18.90 million on 7589 screens in 62 markets for a total of $273.90 million internationally and $427.81 million worldwide. Without much in the way of markets left to open (it debuts in Brazil in a couple weeks) it will see sharp declines in its screens count. Still, $300 million internationally is practically guaranteed. $500 million worldwide is not, but it won't need to reach that level to show a profit.
- Ip Man 2 opened in fourth place with $17.54 million on 777 screens in 6 markets over the weekend for a total opening of $19.98 million. This includes China and Hong Kong, where it was co-produced; however, these are two markets from where we rarely get individual numbers.
- Similarly, we rarely get individual breakdowns for Indian films, but we do know Housefull debuted in fifth place with $9.57 million on 924 screens in 16 markets, which is excellent for this type of film. Add in its performance in limited release here, and it already has more than $10 million worldwide.
- How To Train Your Dragon fell out of the top five with $8.17 million on 4655 screens in 49 markets for a total of $204.40 million internationally and $396.58 million worldwide. It has already reached the $400 million market worldwide, and while that will be the film's last major milestone, it is more than enough to keep the studio happy.
- Camping 2 added $8.16 million on 826 screens in 3 markets over the weekend for a total of $20.72 million after two. In France it has made $17.87 million, including $6.96 million on 782 screens this past weekend.
- Kick-Ass earned eighth place with $4.21 million on 2385 screens in 29 markets for a total of $40.06 million internationally. It lacked major market openings this past weekend and has yet to debut in Spain, Brazil, and other markets. $100 million worldwide is likely. The sequel, titled Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall, will begin production next year.
- Date Night fell to ninth place with $4.15 million on 2459 screens in 48 markets for a total of $35.36 million. It isn't done with its international run just yet, but its chances of matching its domestic total are slim to none. Then again, it has a slim chance at reaching $100 million domestically, so the studio won't be complaining.
- Detective Conan: The Lost Ship In The Sky climbed into second place in Japan and tenth place internationally with $4.02 million on 352 screens over the weekend and $20.05 million after three.
- The Last Song returned to the chart in 11th place with $3.77 million on 1293 screens in 13 markets for a total of $11.43 million after a month of release. In the U.K. the film managed fourth place with $1.04 million on 330 screens. It had to settle for sixth place in Italy with $733,000 on 247 screens.
- Nodame Cantabile: The Final Score - Part II slipped to 12th place with $3.66 million on 410 screens in Japan for a total of $22.84 million.
- Go Lala Go! fell to 13th place, but the Chinese film still managed $2.75 million on 575 screens in its native market for a total of $16.54 million.
- Blades of Blood opened in second place in South Korea and 14th place internationally with $2.68 million on 516 screens over the weekend and $3.49 million overall.
- The Bounty Hunter fell from seventh to 15th, with $2.52 million on 1939 screens in 48 markets for a total of $61.67 million internationally and $125.73 million worldwide.
- Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang slipped a spot to 16th with $2.19 million on 2149 screens in 19 markets for a total of $50.21 million. The film has yet to open in a number of international markets, and it doesn't make its debut here till August, but compared to the original it is doing quite well. Given its results so far, it could make between $30 and $40 million here, but given its release date. The lower end is probably more likely.
- The final multi-million dollar film was The Extraordinary Adventures Of Adèle Blanc-Sec with $2.16 million on 675 screens in 3 markets for a total of $11.18 million after three. In France it placed third with $1.81 million on 636 screens over the weekend for a total of $9.56 million, also after three.
