International Box Office: After Shocks for San Andreas

June 11th, 2015

San Andreas

San Andreas remained in first place over the weekend with $97.8 million in 69 markets for a total of $188.0 million internationally and $286.5 million worldwide. It is almost guaranteed that the film's production budget is fully covered and the film should have the legs to cover its full advertising budget before its international run is over. That means its home market run will be pure gravy. This week, its biggest market was China, where the film earned first place with $34.26 million over the weekend for a six-day opening of $51.95 million. It won't last in first place for long, as Jurassic World has already opened in that market and taken over top spot. (More on that this time next week.) Its next biggest opening was South Korea, where it also earned first place with $5.74 million on 847 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $7.25 million.

Spy! rose to second place with $25.6 million in 55 markets over the weekend for a total of $56.5 million internationally. This includes a $3.91 million opening in 531 cinemas in the U.K. and a $3.07 million opening on 1,616 screens in Russia. The film earned first place in both markets. The film opened in first place in Germany, albeit with $1.15 million on 543 screens. The film only managed second place in Mexico with $1.7 million on 944, but that's still the best result for both Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig. South Korea remains the film's biggest single market at $14.21 million, including $1.85 million on 475 screens this past weekend.

Insidious Chapter 3 debuted in third place with $14.3 million in 43 markets. The film's biggest major market debut was in Russia where it opened in a close second place with $2.98 million on 892 screens. It earned first place in Indonesia with $2.62 million on 377 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $3.14 million. On the other hand, it really struggled in Italy with $345,581 on 200 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $415,779.

Tomorrowland slipped a spot to fourth with $13.8 million in 78 markets for an international total of $93.5 million after three weeks of release. It has just about matched its production budget, but it would have needed to earn twice that to break even. On the plus side, it did open in first place in Japan with $2.11 million on 637 screens.

Stand by me Doraemon was right behind with $12.5 million over the weekend for a total of $74.45 million after two weeks of release in China. It is the biggest Japanese hit in the Chinese market and has earned more in China than it did in its native market. Worldwide, the film has pulled in $147 million since it debuted in theaters last year.

Mad Max: Fury Road fell out of the top five with $11.0 million in 71 markets for totals of $184.0 million internationally and $314.7 million worldwide. It very likely covered its entire production budget, meaning it should break even early in its home market run.

The last film of note was The Avengers: Age of Ultron, which earned seventh place with $7.0 million over the weekend for totals of $910.2 million internationally and $1.348 billion worldwide. It will drop out of the top ten soon, but will return when it opens in Japan next month.

I swear we are going to get back to the top ten eventually, but not next week. Next week Jurassic World will dominate the worldwide box office so much we might not even have a top five.
