International Details - Hogs Gone Wild

April 15th, 2007

Wild Hogs had its best performance of its run so far climbing into sixth place with $3.33 million on 817 screens in 8 markets for a total of $18.43 million after a month of release. About half of that came from the film's number one debut in Mexico where it earned $1.33 million on 355 screens over the weekend and $1.67 million including previews while the film did reasonable business in Taiwan with $345,000 on 40. Its best market to date has been Australia where the film has earned $11.30 million, including $907,000 on 263 screens this past weekend.

  • Le Prix A Payer opened in first place in its native France with $2.92 million on 444 screens, which was strong enough for seventh place internationally.
  • Norbit fell a couple more spots to eighth with $2.90 million on 1739 screens in 34 markets for a total of $54.25 million. The film opened in France but struggled there with just $1.13 million on 197 screens, and that was for the full week.
  • Sunshine started its international run in ninth place with $2.84 million on 656 screens in 8 markets. This includes a fourth place, $2.00 million opening on 407 screens in its native U.K.
  • The Show Must Go On took top spot in South Korea earning $2.61 million on 449 screens over the weekend and $3.07 million in total.
  • Music and Lyrics went from the last place in the top five to just outside the top ten with $2.59 million on 1707 screens in 40 markets for a total of $79.93 million. This was due to the lack of significant openings this weekend, but the film does have a few more markets left to open in and still has a shot at $100 million internationally.
  • Epic Movie climbed to 12th place with $2.57 million on 1183 screens in 19 markets for a total of $34.60 million. Most of the growth came in France where it opened in sixth place with $1.13 million on 280 screens, but that was for the full week.
  • Waiting for a Miracle became the latest in a series of Russia films to chart earning $2.31 million on 503 screens in 3 markets. Almost all of that came from its native market where it scored first place with $2.21 million on 457 screens.
  • Bridge to Terabithia tumbled ten places and more than 50% this weekend, but this can be explained by the total lack of new openings, but it did hold up well in France down just 27% to $1.82 million on 557 screens over the week for a total of $4.82 million after two. Even with this drop-off, it was still able to reach $100 million worldwide adding $2.17 million on 1584 screens in 15 markets for a total of $23.88 million.
  • Thanks to a fifth place opening in Spain, The Good Shepherd was able to return to the charts with $2.14 million on 402 screens in 18 markets for a total of $22.46 million. Of that, $1.12 million was earned on 161 screens over the weekend in Spain while it has taken in $1.52 million in total in that market.
  • Blades of Glory started its international run in 16th place thanks to a second place, $2.01 million opening on 362 screens in the U.K. This is a better debut than most Will Ferrell movies manage and could mean he is expanding his international appeal.
  • Night at the Museum won't last that much longer on the charts as it fell more than ten places to 17th this weekend. Overall the film added $1.87 million on 760 screens in 14 markets for a total of $314.42 million internationally, most of which came from Japan. In that one market the film earned $1.73 million on 557 screens for a four-week total of $24.80 million, but with a 43% drop-off, this is likely the last weekend it remains in top spot.
  • The Lives of Others placed 18th this weekend with $1.84 million on 631 screens in 17 markets for a total of $39.36 million. The film opened in Italy over the weekend but didn't match expectations with $423,000 on 111 screens finishing in eighth place; however, if past performances are any guide, it should still have strong legs in the market.
  • Because I Said So returned to the charts with $1.79 million on 473 screens in 8 markets for a still early international total of $7.23 million. The film opened in a couple major markets placing fifth in South Korea with $624,000 on 140 screens over the weekend and $759,000 in total while earning sixth place in Spain with $940,000 on 176 screens over the weekend and $1.30 million in total.
  • Ensemble, C'est Tout barely hung onto a spot in the top twenty with $1.77 million on 497 screens in 4 markets for a total of $11.54 million, nearly all of which has come from its native France.
  • Derzkie Dni, a.k.a., Brave Days was the second Russian film to open on the charts this weekend placing 21st with $1.68 million on 466 screens in two markets. Those two markets were Russia, ($1.64 million on 427 screens), and the Ukraine, ($40,000 on 39).
  • The Messengers climbed a spot to 22nd with $1.68 million on 654 screens in 3 markets for a total of $6.16 million. The film opened in sixth place in the U.K. with just $515,000 on 260 screens while it was even worst in France with $398,000 on 119 screens, and that French number was for the full week. On the other hand, the film has made $3.17 million in two week in Spain, including $843,000 on 277 this weekend.
  • Ghost Rider isn't done yet as it added $1.60 million on 1394 screens in 54 markets for a total of $103.66 million. It still has South Korea to go, but it has already earned more than enough to cover its costs and justify its sequel.
  • Despite a disappointing performance in Japan, Blood Diamond was able to return to the charts with $1.58 million on 538 screens in 18 markets for a total of $105.05 million internationally. In Japan the film placed third with $1.25 million on 285 screens, but its per screen average was just $4,394 and that suggests a short run there.
  • Small Town Rivals fell nearly 50% to $1.57 million on 315 screens over the weekend and $6.09 million in total. That was still enough to place second in South Korea but it fell from 10th to 25th on the international charts.
  • The Number 23 took another tumble this week down a dozen places to 26th with $1.47 million on 687 screens in 15 markets for a total of $24.53 million. Over the next few weeks the film opens in Mexico, Spain, Italy and Australia and it if doesn't hit it big in at least two of those markets it will have almost no hope of recovering on the international scene.
  • Doraemon: Nobita's Great Adventure Into The Underworld remained in second place in Japan for yet another weekend. However, it did see a sharp drop-off down 48% to $1.35 million on 331 screens for a total of $26.87 million.
  • The Illusionist returned to the charts in 28th place with $1.34 million on 462 screens in 7 markets for an international total of $44.41 million. This includes $1.08 million on 309 screens in Italy where it was able to earn third place.
  • Eragon opened in China earning $1.32 million on 354 screens during its opening weekend there. That pushed its international total of $169.99 million, which is nearly $100 million more than it earned domestically.
  • Hot Fuzz returned to the charts, barely, with $1.28 million on 517 screens in 6 markets for a total of $46.12 million. Its biggest opening of the weekend was in Russia where it took sixth place with $431,000 on 151 screens while its best opening was in the Netherlands where it grabbed $184,000 on 49. Meanwhile in the U.K. it lifted its total to $40.86 million, which could be more than it earns in the rest of the world combined.
  • Are We Done Yet? started its international run this past weekend and did as poorly as expected. In Mexico the film opened in seventh with $407,000 on 250 screens over the weekend and $494,000 in total while in Australia it could do no better than ninth with $334,000 on 170 screens.
  • Meanwhile it was reported that The Holiday reached $200 million mark worldwide, but no other details were given.
