International Details - Men Still Not Getting Old

March 23rd, 2008

No Country For Old Men remained in sixth place with $4.92 million on 1660 screens in 44 markets for a total of $68.25 million. The film ended its international run in Japan where it earned $492,000 on 41, but it missed the top ten there. Perhaps it can expand there.

  • Enchanted made its debut in Japan earning first place with $4.42 million on 533 screens over the weekend and $5.42 million in total. Overall it added $4.88 million on 824 screens in 18 markets to its international box office of $190.31 million, which puts it on pace to cross $200 million internationally in little over a week.
  • Jumper reached $100 million international some time during the week, which is well ahead of its domestic total. It was able to reach this milestone despite falling more than 60% to $4.73 million on 2604 screens in 30 markets and now has $105.59 million in total.
  • The Spiderwick Chronicles expanded into more than a dozen addition markets entering the top ten in the process. Overall it earned $4.58 million on 1455 screens in 20 markets for a total of $11.66 million after a month of release. Most new markets were on the small side, but the film did place third in Spain with $1.18 million on 291 screens while it slipped a spot to third in Mexico with $839,000 on 378 screens over the weekend for a total of $2.99 million.
  • Grande, Grosso E Verdone fell nearly 50% in Italy, but still remained in first place there with $4.42 million on 693 screens for a total of $15.74 million.
  • The Other Boleyn Girl was knocked out of the top ten with $4.12 million on 1140 screens in 14 markets for a total of $13.58 million. The film opened in third place in Australia with $777,000 on 132 screens, which gave it the best per screen average in the top 20 there. Meanwhile in the U.K. the film held on well down 25% to $1.45 million on 335 screens for a total of $4.78 million.
  • Die Welle, which is German for The Wave, opened in first place in its native market despite going up against Horton Hears A Who. There it earned $3.32 million on 279 screens while adding in Austria, it made $3.48 million on 317 screens.
  • Doraemon: Nobita To Midori No Kyojinten was pushed into second place in Japan with $3.43 million on 344 screens for a total of $9.57 million after two weeks.
  • Mr. 73 opened in third place in France and 14th overall with $2.65 million on 483 screens.
  • Juno remained strong adding $2.62 million on 1421 screens in 30 markets for a total of $59.57 million internationally while it has just shy of $200 million worldwide. The film has yet to open in a trio of major market, Germany, Italy, and Japan, and has an outside shot at $100 million internationally.
  • The Water Horse: Legend Of The Deep earned $2.50 million on 1854 screens in 33 markets for a total of $49.41 million. It opened in Italy over the weekend but didn't really connect with moviegoers placing fifth with $654,000 on 176 screens. It is not done yet, but anything more than $100 million worldwide is going to be a challenge at this rate.
  • Recep Ivedik opened in Germany over the weekend, which has a huge Turkish immigrant population, and it earned sixth place with $929,000 on just 62 screens. It also remained in first place in Turkey with $1.18 million on 233 screens over the weekend for a total of $20.28 million after four. Adding in other markets and the movie made $2.41 million on 357 screens in 4 markets for a total of $21.94 million.
  • Earth slipped another spot to 21st with $2.24 million on 512 screens in 4 markets for a total of $63.01 million. The film has been a monster hit in Germany with a total of $23.43 million, including $2.15 million on 421 screens this past weekend. This is almost as much as I Am Legend made in that market in total, and Will Smith is a huge star in that market.
  • His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass had a much softer decline this week falling 30% to $2.23 million on 722 screens in 8 markets for a total of $280.87 million internationally and $350.96 million worldwide. Had you told the studio the film would make $350 million worldwide before they had started production, they probably would have been disappointed. However, had you told them it would make $350 million worldwide after it opened here with just $25 million, they would have been ecstatic.
  • There Will Be Blood fell to 20th place with $2.22 million on 925 screens in 39 markets for a total of $26.89 million. This is not a huge amount of money, but it is better than most limited releases earn internationally, even critically acclaimed ones.
  • The Bucket List had a nearly identical weekend with $2.22 million on 1255 screens in 28 markets, but has earned $52.08 million so far.
  • The Chaser slipped to second place in South Korea with $2.21 million on 374 screens over the weekend for a total of $27.43 million.
  • 27 Dresses fell more than 10 spots to 23rd with $2.08 million 1145 screens in 21 markets for a total of $44.11 million. The film had no major openings last week, but opens in Russia this week and the U.K. next week.
  • Eiga: Kurosagi adding $1.83 million on 315 screens over the weekend for a total of $7.34 million. This was enough for fourth place in Japan and 24th place internationally.
  • 10 Promises To My Dog opened in fifth place in Japan and 25th internationally with $1.81 million on 291 screens.
  • No new openings left Meet the Spartans tumbling down the charts to 26th place with $1.80 million on 1096 screens in 12 markets and it now has $21.05 million. This weekend the film opens in the U.K. while it debuts in Spain next weekend, so it should climb back up the charts.
  • The Eye entered the charts for the first time, barely, landing in 27th place with $1.77 million on 616 screens in 10 markets for a total of $6.58 million. The film opened in fourth place in Australia with $944,000 on 217 screens, but was even weaker in Spain with just $449,000 on 124 screens.
  • An Empress And The Warriors added $1.75 million on 650 screens in two markets for a total of $4.99 million. Most of this has come from China, but exact numbers have not been released.
  • Kings Can Do Everything landed in 29th place with $1.68 million on 404 screens in 3 markets for a total of $5.86 million. Of that, $5.60 million has come from Russia, including $1.60 million on 368 screens this past weekend.
  • The Game Plan remained in 30th place with $1.61 million on 456 screens in 5 markets over the weekend for a total of $29.99 million. This includes a tiny, 2% drop-off during its second weekend in the U.K., where it added $1.54 million on 366 screens for a total of $3.41 million.
A couple other films made some noise debut this past weekend, but missed the top 30. Before the Devil Knows You're Dead earned $1.38 million on 277 screens during its opening in Italy and now has $4.36 million internationally. Meanwhile Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour opened in the U.K. earning ninth place with $489,000 on just 65 screens.
