International Details - Still Treking

May 31st, 2009

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

Star Trek slipped to third place on the international chart with $11.34 million on 5069 screens in 56 markets for a total of $87.68 million. It has now made more internationally than the previous film made worldwide. The film's best market was the U.K. where it has made $24.37 million, including $2.60 million on 474 screens this past weekend. As for future releases, it opens in Japan this weekend, while it has yet to open in Mexico, India, and other markets.

  • Terminator Salvation opened in fourth place with $8.29 million on 732 screens in 2 markets over the weekend for a total of $9.66 million, all but a rounding error coming from its first place opening in South Korea. The film expands worldwide this coming weekend, and should climb the charts then.
  • Wolverine continues its downward slide, but it has already made more than enough money to be profitable, so it matters little at this point. Over the weekend it added $7.41 million on 5591 screens in 66 markets for a total of $158.93 million internationally and $322.25 million worldwide. The only million dollar market of the weekend was France where it placed sixth with $1.12 million on 509 screens, but that was for the full week. After nearly a month of release, the film has pulled in $15.20 million in that one market. Next up for the film is Mexico this weekend, while it has yet to open in Japan.
  • Hannah Montana the Movie continues to plug away adding $3.57 million on 2175 screens in 23 markets for a total of $31.44 million. The film opened in second place in Mexico with $858,000 on 320 screens, while it added $1.00 million on 370 screens in Spain for a total of $7.50 million after three weeks of release there.
  • No new markets left 17 Again in seventh place with $3.05 million on 2109 screens in 39 markets for a total of $54.36 million. The film has made its debut in most major markets, but it is already a box office success, so everything it makes from now on is profit.
  • April Bride remained in second place in Japan with $2.72 million on 310 screens over the weekend, which was enough for eighth place internationally while giving the film a total of $18.05 million after three weeks of release.
  • The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo added $2.57 million on 752 screens in 7 markets for a total of $43.98 million internationally. The film remained strong in France with $2.29 million on 554 screens over the weekend for a total of $5.97 million after two. Meanwhile, it opened in Belgium in seventh place with $117,000 on 42 screens over the weekend and $149,000 in total.
  • Broken Embraces was next with $2.43 million on 339 screens in 4 markets for a total of $7.90 million. This includes a third place, $2.44 million opening on 288 screens in France, but that was for the full week.
That's it for the multi-million dollar movies, but that's hardly a large list, so I'm going to stretch it out for a couple more releases.

  • There was a pretty big drop-off between tenth and eleventh place, with My Bloody Valentine 3D taking the latter with just $1.71 million on 388 screens in 12 markets for a total of $34.56 million. The film opened in Germany, but struggled with $637,000 while landing in fifth place.
  • Coraline has not exactly caught fire internationally, but its run isn't over yet. This past weekend it added $1.69 million on 1215 screens in 18 markets for a total of $21.09 million. It has yet to open in France, Germany, Italy, Australia, and other markets, but it will likely have to wait till the home market to show a profit.
  • Confessions Of A Shopaholic returned to the charts in 13th place with $1.68 million on 380 screens in 17 markets for a total of $59.36 million internationally, while it now has $103.62 million worldwide. It was aided by a fifth place, $1.71 million opening on 288 screens in France, but that was for the full week.
