International Box Office: Jungle Book Laps the Competition with $96.0 million

April 27th, 2016

The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book earned nearly three times as much money as its nearest competition with $96.0 million in 53 markets for totals of $337.0 million internationally and $529.2 million worldwide. More impressively, it did this with no major market openings this past weekend. As for individual markets, the film became the biggest Hollywood film in India earning $28.8 million after three weeks of release. The previous record holder was Furious 7 at $23.4 million. The film's biggest weekend haul came from China, where it made $29.78 million over the weekend for a total of $99.03 million after just 11 days of release.

The Huntsman: Winter's War nearly doubled its weekend haul earning $30.9 million in 64 markets for totals of $79.14 million internationally and $98.58 million worldwide. It will match its $115 million production budget internationally, possibly as early as this time next weekend. This will save face, but it will need to more than double its current worldwide haul to have a shot at breaking even any time soon. Its biggest opening came in China where it earned $10.53 million over weekend and $10.62 million including previews, but that was only enough for third place. It earned second place in both Brazil ($3.18 million) and in France ($2.56 million).

Yesterday Once More was next with $15.29 million, $15.36 million including previews.

Zootopia remained in fourth place for the third weekend in a row earning $10.8 million in 41 markets for totals of $590.7 million internationally and $907.1 million worldwide. It opened in Japan over the weekend, earning $4 million. Hitting $900 million worldwide is a very impressive milestone, but with no markets left ahead, it will likely fade before reaching $1 billion.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice rounded out the top five with $8.3 million in 66 markets for totals of $532.1 million internationally and $851.6 million worldwide. The film also has no new markets to open in, so it will fade away before reaching $900 million worldwide.
