International Races are Getting Interesting
July 23rd, 2003
After The Matrix Reloaded dominated the international marketplace for over a month, 4 films have held on to top spot in the last 5 weeks.
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines rose to first place in its third week of release in the international market. An increase in markets to 21 helped Terminator 3 earn $18.2 million in and raise its total international take to $55 million.
Despite being in nearly three times the markets and on over four times the screens, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle came in second place. The $17 million it did earn did let it cross the $100 million mark internationally. After the weekend it was roughly $1.5 million from hitting the $200 million milestone worldwide, something it should have crossed by now.
Also doing well is Bruce Almighty, which earned another $10 million to pass Liar Liar has Jim Carrey's third best international run. And it still has many more openings to come.
