X-Men’s International Run Mimics Its Domestic Run
May 13th, 2003
As with its domestic take, X-Men 2’s second week saw strong drops in many markets but its $30.9 million was still good enough to win the international box office. Drops in of 40% - 50% in countries like Germany, U.K. and Japan were offset by better performances in France and Spain. X-Men 2's total international take now sits at $120 million, less than $20 million below the original’s total international run.
Next week when Matrix Reloaded opens in a similarly massive fashion, all this will change. But by then X-Men 2 will have nearly matched X-Men in both domestic and international box office so the studio will be happy.
