International Details - 10,000 Scores a Solid Sixth Place
April 13th, 2008
No new openings left 10,000 B.C. tumbling from second to sixth, but it still pulled in $5.83 million on 4302 screens in 61 markets for a total of $155.16 million. This is substantially more than it made stateside while it is about a week away from $250 million worldwide.
- Step Up 2 The Streets slipped one spot to seventh place with $5.03 million on 1579 screens in 27 markets for a total of $61.61 million. The film is still doing well in the U.K. adding $1.76 million on 364 screens over the weekend for a total of $14.95 million after three, and it opens in France this weekend, so it is not done yet.
- No major openings hurt Jumper as it was down more than 40% to $4.86 million on 1988 screens in 15 markets for a total of $130.11 million. The film remained in first place in Mexico with $1.15 million on 556 screens over the weekend for a total of $4.08 million after two, while it fell from first to third in Germany with $1.33 million on 404 screens lifting its total to $4.35 million. Overall, the film has made more than $200 million worldwide, which is more than enough to be considered a financial success, while profitability is not far away.
- A number of smaller openings helped Vantage Point remain in ninth place with $4.19 million on 2172 screens in 51 markets for a total of $67.65 million
- The Kite Runner climbed into tenth place with $3.49 million on 872 screens in 26 markets for a total of $47.40 million. No major openings this week, but the movie remained solid in Italy down just 17% to $2.47 million on 371 screens over the weekend for a total of $6.92 million. Overall, the film has performed up to expectations at the international box office, even though it didn't become a major player during the past Awards Seasons as many expected it would.
- The Game Plan added $3.41 million on 1215 screens in 11 markets for a total of $43.05 million. It is still pulling in substantial cash during its second weekend in Germany ($1.48 million on 404 screens) and in Spain ($1.00 on 250) and now has totals of $4.01 million and $2.79 million respectively. Next up is France this week and Italy next week, and it has already made enough to meet expectations given its target audience and genre.
- 27 Dresses fell five spots down to 12th with $3.29 million on 1163 screens in 17 markets for a total of $65.12 million. Despite four new films in the top ten in the U.K., 27 Dresses was able to repeat on top with $2.04 million on 434 screens for a two-week total of $7.89 million. The film has yet to open France, China, and Japan, and should top its domestic total before long.
- Juno only managed fifth place in Italy, which is lower than most Oscar contender place, but this is not the typical Oscar contender. In that market it managed $869,000 on 239 screens, but if its legs are as strong as other markets, it should still perform well here. Overall it added $3.18 million on 1218 screens in 23 markets for a total of $75.64 million.
- Untraceable entered the charts for the first time earning $2.99 million on 884 screens in 15 markets for a total of $11.38 million so far. This includes three openings in major markets, the biggest of which was Germany where it landed in seventh place with $855,000 on 248 screens while it placed better in Spain earning fourth place with $750,000 on 201 screens. Additionally, it opened in Russia with $587,000 on 162 screens, which was enough fifth place.
- The Other Boleyn Girl's big opening of the week came in France where it only managed fifth place. However, it still earned $1.11 million on just 177 screens. Overall it made $2.85 million on 970 screens in 17 markets for a total of $29.52 million.
- Meet the Spartans added $2.68 million on 825 million in 11 markets for a total of $35.99 million. Despite dropping nearly 50% during its second weekend in Spain, it still led the marked earning $1.62 million on 316 screens and now has $5.11 million.
- Cloverfield opened in Japan, the final market it opens in, where it placed first with $2.58 million on 235 screens. Overall it made $2.61 million on 292 screens in 13 million for a total $80.67 million internationally. This is more than it made domestically, barely, and more than enough to show a strong profit and it should do even better on the home market.
- Awake climbed into the top 20 earning $2.48 million on 851 screens in 13 markets for a still early total of $7.19 million. It's biggest opening came in the U.K., but it only managed seventh place with $1.09 million on 281 screens. This is a very bad omen for the rest of the film's international run.
- Never Back Down reached the charts for the first time thanks mostly to its fourth place, $1.68 million opening on 326 screens in the U.K. Overall it made $2.45 million on 537 screens for a total of $3.99 million.
- Fool's Gold returned to the chart in 20th place with $2.33 million on 676 screens in 10 markets for a total of $12.70 million. Most of its weekend haul came in Russia where it topped the charts with $1.78 million on 401 screens, which was $1 million more than the next best opener.
- The Guard Post debuted in first place in South Korea with $2.32 million on 369 screens over the weekend and $2.72 million in total.
- Jalsa is the latest Indian film to chart internationally coming in 22nd with $2.18 million over the weekend, which was earned on 454 screens in 7 markets for a total of $4.60 million. This is a better than average start, but weak compared to some of the monster hits the country has produced lately.
- After an absence of nearly 8 months, Next returned to the charts with $1.97 million 289 screens for a total of $48.54 million, all of this week's box office coming from Italy. Meanwhile, the film has yet to open in Japan and will do so at the end of the month.
- Race had the worst week-to-week drop on the charts this week down 63% and 16 spots, but this is common for niche-market films. It still made $1.95 million on 723 screens in 14 markets for a total of $23.83 million, which is strong for an Indian and more than enough to be considered a major hit.
- Die Welle added $1.90 million on 490 screens in 2 markets for a total of $15.66 million. Of that total, $14.71 million came from Germany, where it returned to first place with $1.80 million on 440 screens this past weekend.
- Son Of Rambow opened in its native market earning second place with $1.78 million on 308 screens. This works out to a $10 million opening here, taking the sizes of the two markets into account; however, I think the distributor will be happy with $10 million in total.
- It is rare for a Polish film to open with more than $1 million in its native market, so it is quite a feat for Nie Klam, Kochanie to earn $1.74 million on 156 screens during its second week of release there. So far it has made $4.72 million in that market after just two weekends, which is more than most hits earn there in total.
- Doraemon: Nobita To Midori No Kyojinten earned $1.72 million on 344 screens in Japan lifting its total to $29.40 million.
- His Dark Materials: The Golden Compass nearly fell out of the top 30 adding $1.70 million on 932 screens in 4 markets for a total of $295.59 million internationally. It could still hit $300 million, but it will fall out of the top 30 before then.
- Finally Enchanted earned $1.63 million on 586 screens in 7 markets for a total of $207.13 million making one of the most pleasant surprise hits from the end of 2007.
