International Details - Treat for Trick 2

June 18th, 2006

Trick 2 opened in its native Japan finishing in a close second with $3.83 million on 282 screens. That was enough for sixth place on the overall charts and the best per screen average in the top 30.

  • Mission: Impossible 3 may have seen its weekend total sliced in half, and it may have fallen out of the top five, but it did reach a major milestone this weekend. Its $3.53 million on 2593 screens in 55 markets pushed its international total of $200.84 million, however, that's about half of the studio's expectations.
  • Over the Hedge held up better than most films in the face of World Cup fever, but it was still down 49% to $2.76 million on 466 screens in 12 markets for an early international total of $13.34 million. The film has yet to open in a major market, but that changes this weekend when it debuts in Australia and Spain.
  • The Break-Up started its international run last weekend earning $2.48 million on 260 screens in 2 markets. In the larger of the two markets, Australia, it finished second with $2.28 million on 211 screens and earned the same placing in New Zealand with $206,000 on 49 screens.
  • Limit Of Love: Umizaru slipped to third place this weekend in Japan down 23% to $2.43 million on 286 screens over the weekend and $51.76 million in total.
  • Volver fell five places to 11th this week with $2.16 million on 816 screens in five markets for a total of $31.61 million. Its best market of the weekend was France where it added $1.25 million on 404 screens for a four-week total of $10.34 million.
  • Phir Hera Pheri started its international run with a 12th place, $1.96 million weekend earned on 633 screens in 15 markets. This appears to be part of a resurgence in the Indian movie industry, which was hurt for years by a glut of sub-par releases.
  • La Maison Du Bonheur debuted in top spot in its native France with $1.74 million on 407 screens, which was good enough for 13th place overall.
  • R.V. opened in the U.K. over the weekend, among other markets, and that pushed its weekend haul up 42% to $1.45 million on 752 screens in 13 markets for a two-week total of just $2.78 million. The film missed the top five in the U.K. with just $505,000 on 293 screens. On the other hand, it was down just 24% in Australia adding $563,000 on 181 screens for a two-week total of $1.52 million.
  • Scary Movie 4 was nearly flat this week down a mere 3% to $1.31 million on 701 screens in 25 markets for a total of $67.67 million so far.
  • The Indian film, Fanaa, lost more than half of its weekend box office down to $1.20 million on 623 screens in 16 markets for a total of $13.59 million after three weeks.
  • Ice Age: The Meltdown grew by 3% this week thanks to its debut in China. In that market it made $997,000 on 550 screens, which is below expectations. Overall the film added $1.15 million on 756 screens in 6 markets for a total of $441.03 million.
  • Inside Man finally opened in Japan but suffered earning only a sixth place finish with $781,000 on 216 screens. Overall it brought in $1.15 million on 694 screens in 32 markets lifting its international total just above its domestic one, $89.34 million to $88.17 million.
  • The Wild had the worst week-to-week drop-off in the top 30 this week plummeting 68% and 12 places bringing in just $1.14 million on 1629 screens in 25 markets for a $45.62 million total. During its second weekend in Germany the film was down a stunning 79% to $249,000 on 510 screens for a two-week total of $2.07 million.
  • Take the Lead barely hung onto a spot in the top twenty with $1.06 million on 544 screens in 11 markets for a total of $20.30 million. It did remain strong in Australia down just 30% to $592,000 on 129 screens for a three-week total of $3.17 million.
  • Le Passager De L'Ete open in sixth place in its native France with $999,000 on 300 screens.
  • Reincarnation, a Japanese film, open in third place in South Korea with $924,000 on 106 screens over the weekend and $1.13 million in total, which lifted its international total to $5.89 million.
  • Marie Antoinette fell out of the top twenty this week down 52% to $884,000 on 452 screens in 4 markets for a total of $6.67 million. Almost all of that, ($801,000 for the weekend and $6.12 million in total), came from France.
  • Memories Of Matsuko was one of the few films not to plummet this weekend, but it still fell to fifth place in Japan down 23% to $883,000 on 224 screens for a total of $6.58 million.
  • United 93 saw one of the worst week-to-week declines on the charts this week down 63% to $882,000 on 538 screens in 4 markets for a total of just $4.58 million. It best market was the U.K. where it was down 45% to $623,000 on 266 screens for a two-week total of $2.50 million. On the other hand, it practically disappeared in Germany down an incredible 81% to $173,000 on 198 screens.
  • American Dreamz climbed back onto the charts, barely, earning $831,000 on 430 screens in 12 markets for an international total of $6.25 million. The film opened in a trio of major markets but flopped in each of them. Its biggest by raw dollars was France at $336,000 on 175, but it only managed ninth place. In Italy it earned eighth, but with just $211,000 on 100 screens. In the mean time, in Spain it missed the top ten with $110,000 on 50. The film should have no trouble topping its domestic total, but in this case, that's not a real reason to celebrate.
  • City Of Violence fell just 24% during the weekend in South Korea slipping to seventh with $722,000 on 223 screens over the weekend and $6.80 million in total.
  • New Kiss Of A Butterfly opened in third place in its native Russia with $612,000 on 210 screens over the weekend and $692,000 including Thursday. Adding in two other smaller markets and the film made a total of $654,000 on 303 screens over the weekend and $763,000 in total.
  • Memories Of Tomorrow has spent its last weekend in to top 30 with $577,000 on 265 screens for a total of $15.23 million after a month of release in Japan.
  • Camping barely hung onto a spot in the top 30 with $540,000 on 343 screens in 3 markets for a $40.22 million total, nearly all of that coming from France.
  • The Transporter 2 had the worst week-to-week drop-off in the top ten in Japan down 41% to $437,000 on 172 screens. It now has $1.84 million in that market and 42.83 million internationally.
  • Lovewrecked started its international run in Russia but failed to impress with a seventh place start earning $101,000 on 52 screens over the weekend and $124,000 in total. That's below fellow Amanda Bynes film, She's the Man, which added $146,000 on 86 screens during its second weekend there for a total of $400,000 so far. Lovewrecked has yet to find a domestic release date and is quickly running out of summer real-estate while She's the Man has earned an estimated $15 million internationally so far.
