International Details - Some Enchanted Weekend

January 20th, 2008

Enchanted fell out of the top five but still had a very impressive weekend box office adding $8.12 million on 4348 screens in 43 markets for a total of $151.50 million. This includes a fifth place opening in South Korea where the film earned $1.08 million on 322 screens over the weekend and $1.34 million in total. Meanwhile it also earned fifth place in the U.K. with $1.59 million on 472 screens over the weekend for a total of $29.46 million after a month of release. Its chances at $200 million internationally depend heavily on its run in Japan staring mid-March, but $300 million worldwide is all but assured now.

  • American Gangster opened in third place in Australia, but was within striking distance of first with $2.95 million on 255 screens. Overall it made $6.89 million on 1771 screens in 38 markets for a total of $81.55 million and could reach $250 million worldwide depending on how well it does in its final major markets.
  • The end of holidays, and no major openings, hurt Bee Movie as it fell 53% to $6.77 million on 4049 screens in 45 markets for a total of $142.30 million. Impressively, the film was down only 20% during its second weekend in South Korea, which is not a market known for strong legs, as it added $1.58 million on 296 screens for a total of $4.66 million. The film debuted in Tokyo over the weekend, but doesn't expand wide in Japan till the end of the month. At that point, we will have a solid idea on where it will end its run.
  • L'Allenatore Ne Pallone 2 missed first place in its native market of Italy but still managed ninth place overall with $5.32 million on 510 screens.
  • Keinohrhasen was down just 19% capturing 10th place with $5.22 million on 690 screens in 3 market for a total of $30.77 million. Of this total, $28.01 million has come from Germany, including $4.75 million on 610 screens this past weekend.
  • Atonement debuted in third place in Spain with $1.64 million on 181 screens, but it was not enough to push it into the top ten.

The film had no major openings this week, but it did hold strong in the U.K. down just 19% to $2.84 million on 369 screens for a total of $10.26 million in that one market.
  • Ironiya sudby. Prodolzhenie, a.k.a., the Irony of Fate 2 fell more than 60% to $3.46 million on 829 screens in 5 markets for a total of $49.25 million. However, it was still able to set a record in Russia where it has made $44.61 million in total, including $3.14 million on 740 screens this past weekend.
  • Earth a.k.a. Planet Earth, is the best selling high definition title of all time (using raw dollars as a measure), returned to the charts in 15th place this week. The film added $3.42 million on 330 screens in 3 markets for a running tally of $19.13 million. Almost all of the film's weekend box office came from Japan where it opened in first place with $3.30 million on 275 screens over the weekend, which bodes well for its long term chances.
  • Charlie Wilson's War made its first appearance on the charts with $3.32 million on 518 screens in 6 markets over the weekend for a very early total of $4.06 million. Of that, $2.62 million on 405 screens came from the film's third place debut in the U.K.
  • Open City opened in second place in South Korea with $3.26 millio on 413 screens over the weekend and $3.81 million in total.
  • 27 Dresses opened a week early in Australia placing a very close second to I am Legend $3.15 million to $3.19 million. In fact, adding in previews, the film earned $3.20 million in 240 screens so far.
  • Black And White opened in second place in Italy with $2.56 million on 280 screens, which was enough for 19th place overall.
  • Into The Wild charted for the first time placing 20th with $2.34 million on 237 screens in 6 markets for a total of $5.83 million. This include a surprise first place opening in France with $2.03 million on just 172 screens.

There it placed first with $511,000 on 40 screens over the weekend and $563,000 in total. Add in holdovers and the film made $1.72 million on 280 screens in 3 markets for a total of $13.27 million.
  • Hitman likely spent its last week in the top 30, at least until it arrives in Japan in April. This week it brought in $1.65 million on 1141 screens in 10 markets for a total of $54.54 million.
  • 30 Days Of Night returned to the charts in 26th place with $1.61 million on 569 screens in 14 markets for a total of $25.51 million.

The film has yet to open in Japan, but it seems unlikely that it will turn around its fortunes at this point.
