International Details - Peninsula at Pinnacle

July 23rd, 2006

A South Korean film, Hanbando, a.k.a. The Korean Peninsula, topped its native market with a huge $6.14 million on 520 screens over the weekend and a total of $9.85 million overall. That was good enough for sixth place on the international charts.

  • Sinking Of Japan opened in first place in Japan $5.27 million on 288 screens over the weekend.
  • Mission: Impossible 3 fell more than 40% in Japan to $3.74 million on 807 screens over the weekend for a total of $23.75 million after two weeks. Overall the film made $3.78 million for a total of $228.95 million internationally, which is enough to ensure a profit, but disappointing nonetheless.
  • The latest Pokemon movie open in Japan in third place. Pokemon: Theater Volume 9 earned $3.63 million on 309 screens for a per screen average of $11,744, which is more than enough to suggest the film will have long legs there.
  • The Da Vinci Code barely hung onto a spot in the top ten with $2.71 million on 2218 screens in 53 markets for a total of $520.97 million internationally.
  • Poseidon slipped a spot to 11th with $2.42 million on 2518 screens in 38 markets for a total of $105.16 million. The film opened in Germany over the weekend but manage just third place with a terrible $909,000 on 722 screens
  • The Lake House added another $2.15 million on 1072 screens in 15 markets for a total of $15.37 million internationally. The film hung on well in Germany with $676,000 on 307 screens for a two-week total of $2.08 million, but the film has yet to find a breakout market.
  • United 93 opened in third place in France with $996,000 on 220 screens helping the film into 13th place overall with $1.83 million on 667 screens in 11 markets for a total of $11.57 million.
  • Silent Hill added $1.65 million on 843 screens in 11 markets to its international total of $35.43 million. Almost all of that came from three markets, Japan with $589,000 on 176 screens, Italy with $514,000 on 304 screens, and Mexico with $483,000 on 229 screens.
  • The Break-Up had to rely on holdovers this weekend as it fell to 15th place with $1.64 million on 804 screens in 17 markets for a total of $24.75 million after more than a month of release. This weekend it opens in the U.K., which should be its best international market.
  • Brave Story fell to fifth place in Japan with just $1.27 million on 364 screens for $5.36 million in total.
  • Little Man opened day and date in Australia with $1.20 million on 165 screens, which is a little lower than what White Chicks earned when it opened in that market.
  • Death Note fell 42% in Japan, which is very high for that market, but it has been performing very well up to now, so the studio should still be very happy. Over the weekend it finished sixth with just $1.16 million on 267 screens for a total of $20.14 million after a month of release.
  • Take the Lead added $1.07 million on 762 screens in 20 markets for a total of $28.43 million internationally. The film had an average hold in France down 36% to $595,000 on 340 screens for a two-week total of $1.82 million in that market.
  • Nos Jours Heureux was again one of the best holdovers in the top ten in France down just 27% to $842,000 on 374 screens for a total of $4.34 million after three weeks of release.
  • Click is still coasting on holdovers at the moment earning just $831,000 on 282 screens in 4 markets for a total of $10.87 million, $9.51 million of which has come from Australia.
  • Just My Luck had one of the worst week-to-week drop-offs as it tumbled 59% to $823,000 on 786 screens in 15 markets for a total of $13.79 million. On the other hand, it looks like it could top its domestic run internationally, which is not some most of these films can do. But even this is more an indication of how badly it did domestically, not how well it is doing internationally.
  • The Hills Have Eyes added $795,000 on 646 screens in 7 markets to its international total of $22.39 million, which is obvious enough to make the studio happy as they have given the go-ahead to a sequel.
  • Scary Movie 4 took another tumble down 49% to $788,000 on 950 screens in 16 markets for a total of $84.27 million internationally. This is likely the last weekend the film will appear on the top 30, but it has made more than enough money to show a profit.
  • Krrish is another film that has likely spent its last weekend in the top 30. This week it finished in 25th place with $694,000 on 507 screens in 11 markets for a total of $21.32 million.
  • Final Destination 3 jumped back into the top 30 with $681,000 on 232 screens in 8 markets lifting its total to $59.62 million internationally. The film opened in Brazil and New Zealand over the weekend and while the former numbers are not known, in the latter it debuted in eighth place with $107,000 on 37 screens.
  • Arang added $677,000 on 175 screens in South Korean for a total of $6.83 million there.
  • Lucky Number Slevin opened in a few smaller markets and that helped it climb a couple of spots to 28th with $650,000 on 259 screens in 12 markets for a $22.01 million international total so far.
  • A.P.T. had this worst week-to-week drop off in the top 30 down 66% and 14 places to $642,000 on 224 screens for a total of $3.55 million in South Korea.
  • R.V. just clung onto a spot in the top 30 with $630,000 on 692 screens in 23 markets for a total of $11.00 million.
  • She's the Man opened in Spain over the weekend but only managed 8th place with $327,000 on 152 screens. So far the film has made an estimated $13 million internationally, $8.68 million of which has come from the U.K.
  • Garfield's A Tail of Two Kitties slipped to third Hong Kong with $272,000 on 30 screens over the weekend. It now has $1.02 million in that market and $7.31 million internationally.
  • X-Men: The Last Stand fell out of the top 30 this week, but it already has $206.08 million internationally with two more markets to open in, (China and Japan), so the studio should be very happy with its results.
