International Details - Terminating Another Milestone

June 28th, 2009

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

Terminator Salvation fell to second place with $18.94 million on 9263 screens in 71 markets over the weekend, for a total of $200.84 million internationally and $320.57 million worldwide. The film has been troubled by sharp drop-offs internationally, and that was certainly the case this past weekend, as it was down 65% in Japan. Japan. It was down 65% in Japan, which is a market known for its strong holds. It still added $3.72 million on 697 screens over the weekend for a total of $19.70 million after two, but that's a sharper decline than anticipated.

  • Night at the Museum - Battle for the Smithsonian slid to third place with $11.53 million on 7223 screens in 68 markets for a total of $193.64 million internationally. It is likely that the movie crossed $200 million internationally by now, but we won't have the numbers till next week.
  • The Hangover opened in nearly a dozen more theaters remaining in fourth place with $11.39 million on 1841 screens in 24 markets for a still early total of $30.45 million. Most of the markets were smaller in size, but it did earn fourth place in Italy with $888,999 on 292 screens. Meanwhile in the U.K. it added $3.71 million on 428 screens over the weekend for a total of $12.72 million after two. This represented just an 18% drop-off, while in Australia it was down just 7% to $2.56 million on 227 screens over the weekend for a total of $6.40 million after two.
  • The Proposal started its international run in fifth place with $9.88 million on 1487 screens in 19 markets. Of this, $3.21 million was earned on 280 screens in Australia, where it earned top spot. It was also the box office champion in Russia with $2.63 million on 409 screens. It had to settle for third place in Mexico with $1.51 million on 436 screens, but that was still a respectable debut there.
  • Angels and Demons continues to shed screens falling to sixth place with $8.43 million on 5755 screens in 67 markets over the weekend for a total of $329.02 million internationally and $457.18 million worldwide. This is the best performance in both categories this year, so far. It's clear that it won't be that way for that much longer.
  • Up opened in the Ukraine, which is not a major market, but it did earn first place with $292,000 on 76 screens there, which is the best for a Disney animated movie in that market. It also held on well in Mexico adding $1.67 million on 541 screens over the weekend for a total of $10.59 million after three. Overall it landed in seventh place with $6.81 million on 2026 screens in 16 markets for an early total of $38.99 million. It's too soon to tell how big the movie will be internationally, and we won't really have a good idea till it opens in France and Spain in late July. Until then, it might fall off the chart, and I will definitely run out of things to talk about.
  • Rookies returned to first place in Japan but was pushed into eighth place internationally with $6.43 million on 428 screens over the weekend for a total of $62.58 million after four.
  • State of Play climbed into the top ten with $3.50 million on 1365 screens in 40 markets for a total of $38.81 million. This includes openings in a number of markets, the largest of which was Germany where it did okay. It managed second place with $1.39 million on 324 screens, which is better than average for its run, but still disappointing. Meanwhile in Russia, it barely made the top ten with $145,000 on 87 screens.
  • Hannah Montana the Movie earned tenth place over the weekend with $3.41 million on 2202 screens in 32 markets for a total of $52.33 million. This includes a fifth place, $1.11 million opening on 291 screens in France, but that was for the full week.
  • Running Turtle grew by 19% up a spot to 11th internationally while remaining in first place in South Korea. Over the weekend it added $3.08 million on 403 screens, and now has $7.49 million after two.
  • Coraline climbed another spot to 12th place with $2.83 million on 1489 screens in 27 markets for a total of $33.23 million. Growth occurred mostly thanks to the film's first place, $1.27 million opening on 205 screens in Italy.
  • A Chronicle Of Stones opened in fourth place in Japan with $2.73 million on 308 screens over the weekend and $3.04 million in total, but that was still enough for 13th place internationally.
  • Drag Me To Hell fell to 14th place with $2.65 million on 1409 screens in 19 markets for a total of $21.19 million.
  • The Ghosts of Girlfriends Past raised its running tally by $2.39 million on 878 screens in 22 markets and now has $28.03 million.
  • Tellement Proches opened in first place in France and 16th place internationally with $2.12 million on 394 screens.
  • Wolverine nearly climbed back above $2 million with $1.97 million on 1824 screens in 15 markets for a total of $183.18 million. The film opened in India this past weekend with an estimated $1.4 million on 322 screens. Next up is Japan, in September.
