May 24th, 2009

The top film on the international scene were published on Wednesday and can be found here.

Star Trek's second weekend of release on the international chart was not as strong as it was domestically as it dropped 44% to 20.02 million on 5782 screens in 55 markets, but it lifted its total of $67.89 million internationally and it became the first in the franchise to reach $200 million worldwide. The film opened in China, but box office numbers were not released. We do have details on most holdovers, including the U.K., where it added $5.27 million on 498 screens over the weekend for a total of $18.42 million after two. The only other multi-million market was Australia, where it earned $2.04 million on 317 screens giving it a total of $6.66 million.

  • Wolverine saw its weekend haul sliced in half with $13.90 million on 7695 screens in 68 markets for a total of $145.00 million after three weeks of release. Its biggest market of the weekend was the U.K. with $1.84 million on 452 screens, while it has made $21.69 million in that market after three weeks of release. It also earned third place in France with $1.96 million on 659 screens, but that was for the full week. After three weeks, it has made $13.61 million in that market.
  • 17 Again remained in fourth spot thanks to a pair of third place openings in major markets. In Germany it earned $1.41 million on 266 screens, while in Italy it managed $808,000 on 328 screens. Overall it made $5.40 million on 2413 screens in 37 markets for a total of $49.68 million.
  • Hannah Montana the Movie had to rely on holdovers this weekend, but it still managed fifth place with $4.94 million on 1822 screens in 18 markets for a total of $26.77 million internationally and $102.76 million. The film added $1.88 million on 338 screens during its second weekend in Spain for a total of $6.07 million, while it now has $9.17 million in the U.K., including $1.52 million on 424 screens during this past weekend.
  • April Bride remained sixth place internationally, but fell to second place in Japan with $3.71 million on 310 screens over the weekend giving it a total of $12.19 million.
  • The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo returned to the international chart in seventh place with $3.54 million on 716 screens in 6 markets for a total of $39.50 million. The film made its debut in France scoring second place with $3.55 million, but that was for the full week. If distributors here are not seriously looking at picking up the rights to this film, they are making a mistake.
  • The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past continue to climb the charts reaching eighth place with $3.08 million on 1132 screens in 9 markets for a total of $9.95 million after three weeks of release. The film debuted in first place in Mexico with $912,000 on 350 screens over the weekend, while it added $936,000 on 219 screens over the weekend in Australia, for a total of $2.76 million after two.

  • My Girlfriend Is An Agent fell out of first place in South Korea, but it climbed into 10th place internationally with $2.20 million on 438 screens over the weekend for a total of $16.17 million after four weeks of release.
  • Monsters vs. Aliens fell out of the top ten with $2.09 million on 2802 screens in 49 markets for a total of $161.56 million after two month of release. This will be the last time this film appears on this chart, at least till it opens in Japan.
  • My Bloody Valentine 3D was the final multi-million film earning $2.02 million on 432 screens in 11 markets for a total of $31.58 million. The film held on better than expected in Italy down just 36% to $1.48 million on 253 screens over the weekend and it now has a total of $5.32 million in that market.
