International Details - Another Milestone for Hancock

August 10th, 2008

Hancock fell from second to sixth with $12.03 million on 5425 screens in 68 markets, however, it still reached $300 million internationally since last week and now has a running tally of $319.43 million. Its best market of the weekend was Spain where it added $1.92 million on 567 screens over the weekend for a total of $20.56 million after two. Meanwhile, its best market overall remains the U.K. where it has $47.09 million after a month of release, including $900,000 on 318 screens this past weekend. With Japan and Italy still ahead, the film should become Will Smith's second $600 million movie, but it will end well back of Independence Day.

  • Thanks to openings in the U.K. and France, as well as other smaller markets, The X-Files: I Want to Believe remained flat down just 3% to $8.72 million on 3891 million screens in 40 markets for a total of $21.35 million internationally. In the U.K. it opened in fourth place with $1.75 million on 402 screens while it made $2.12 million on 485 screens in France, but that was for the full week. So far the film has already made more internationally than it did domestically, and has made more worldwide than it cost to make.
  • Ponyo on the Cliff was also down just 3%, but it is still playing in just one market, Japan. There it remained in first place with $7.22 million on 481 screens while it has now pulled in $48.90 million in total.
  • A first place opening in Germany helped The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian more than double its weekend haul as it rose to ninth place with $6.70 million on 2896 screens in 32 markets for a total of $246.61 million. In that market it pulled in $3.96 million on 758 screens, which was about $2 million lower than the original's opening, which is actually better than its worldwide average so far.
  • Wanted earned $6.48 million on 1589 screens in 38 markets for a total of $115.55 million. This includes $2.88 million on 256 screens the film earned during its second place debut in Australia.
  • Journey To The Centre of the Earth added $4.59 million on 2054 screens in 13 markets for a total of $32.89 million. This includes $1.55 million on 600 screens over the weekend in Mexico, which lifted its total there to $6.78 million after two.
  • An Eye For An Eye opened in third place in South Korea and 12th internationally with $4.42 million on 460 screens over the weekend and $6.16 million in total.
  • Fellow South Korean film, The Good, the Bad and the Weird, was right behind with $4.01 million on 502 screens over the weekend for a total of $33.03 million after three.
  • The Incredible Hulk added $2.72 million on 1315 screens in 32 million over the weekend for a total of $113.10 million. This includes an opening in Japan, but it missed the top ten there with $560,000 on 157 screens. The movie is nearly done, however, it has already earned as much as the original did worldwide, so the studio should be at least somewhat happy.
  • Red Cliff was right behind in 15th place with $2.72 million on 923 screens in 8 markets for a total of $63.46 million.
  • Pokemon 2008 remained in second place in Japan and 16th place internationally with $2.49 million on 359 screens lifting its total to $25.00 million after three weeks of release.
  • Get Smart nearly reached $200 million worldwide with $2.38 million on 1693 screens in 21 markets for a total of $68.99 million internationally and $195.49 million worldwide. The film had no $1 million markets this weekend, but it has yet to open in the U.K., France, and Japan and could earn $100 million internationally before it is all done.
  • Naruto Shippuden: The Movie opened in third place in Japan and 18th internationally with $2.04 million on 252 screens.
  • Sunny fell to fourth place in South Korea and 19th place internationally with $1.75 million on 365 screens over the weekend for a total of $8.91 million.
  • Space Chimps entered the charts for the first time with $1.69 million on 631 screens in 10 markets for a total of $3.73 million. The film's biggest opening came from the U.K., but it only managed seventh place with $1.11 million on 314 screens over the weekend.
  • Indiana Jones And The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull earned $1.61 million on 894 screens in 28 markets over the weekend and now has $459.14 million internationally and $773.47 million worldwide.
  • Boys Over Flowers remained in fourth place in Japan and down one spot to 22nd internationally with $1.61 million on 316 screens over the weekend while it has made $56.07 million in total.
  • Meet Dave could fall out of the top 30 next week as it was down to just $1.55 million on 1191 screens in 19 markets for a total of $16.01 million.
  • The Happening is running out of time to reach $100 million before the end. This week it earned $1.51 million on 562 screens in 14 markets for a total of $93.30 million, and it could get there if it can hold on in Japan. However, this week it fell 46% in that market to $1.40 million on 310 screens and now has $6.53 million there after just two week.
  • Sex and the City added $1.44 million on 1114 screens in 42 markets to its international total of $239.34 million.
  • Angus, Thongs And Perfect Snogging was down just 23% during its second weekend in the U.K. with $1.41 million on 377 screens over the weekend for a total of $5.70 million after two.
  • Superhero Movie remained in 27th place with $1.35 million on 431 screens in 5 markets for a total of $37.59 million internationally. The film was down a mere 11% in Germany added $1.19 million on 356 screens over the weekend for a total of $3.15 million after two.
  • Almost Perfect (Shi Quan Jiu Mei) opened in China with $1.31 million on 398 screens over the weekend.
  • The Love Guru returned to the charts in 29th place with $1.30 million on 445 screens in 6 markets for a still early total of $3.75 million. This includes an 8th place opening in the U.K. with $982,000 on 301 screens. It also opened in Italy, but earned just $43,000 on 48 screens, but that was enough for ninth place.
  • The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life slipped a spot to 30th with $1.24 million on 302 screens, all of which came from France.
