Bad Boys are the Best
October 14th, 2003
Bad Boys II added another $16.1 million from 3,625 screen in 41 markets to push its international box office total to $64.3 million and worldwide total past $200 million. The sequel opened number one in an amazing 10 markets and is now just one week away from topping the original's total international box office of $75.6 million.
Despite playing on less than 1000 screens in just 14 markets, Finding Nemo earned $13.4 million and second place for the weekend. Nearly half the screens and more than 90% of its box office came from its first wide release in the U.K. Finding Nemo's international total now stands at $108.3 million with many more major openings to come.
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen took in $13.0 million this week, which put its international total ahead of its domestic total, $68.7 million to $66.4 million. The results are still disappointing, but not the disaster they were domestically.
After seven weeks at number one, Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl finished second last week. This week it dropped to fourth with just $6.1 million, roughly half of last week's figure. With no more major openings, it is unlikely the film will climb much higher on the all-time charts.
The final installment in the Spy Kids Trilogy has yet to open in most major markets, but it still earned $4.1 million and a fifth place finish last weekend. While the three movies earned an average of more than $100 million domestically, they didn't fare as well internationally. However, with $17.2 million in only 10 markets, Spy Kids 3D: Game Over should easily beat the previous two films' totals.
