International Box Office: Suicide Slips, but Still Tops Chart with $58.7 million

August 17th, 2016

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad saw its numbers fall dramatically, but still held onto top spot on the international chart with $58.7 million in 62 markets. The film’s totals rose to $242.5 million internationally and $465.1 million worldwide. The film’s two biggest new markets were Argentina, where it earned $2.5 million, and Italy, where it pulled in $2.15 million. Its best holdover was the U.K., where it remained in first place despite falling 62% to $5.52 million in 587 theaters for a two-week total of $28.90 million. At this pace, the film will be over $500 million worldwide before the weekend, while it is on track for $750 million worldwide in total. That should be enough to break even before its home market run.

The Secret Life of Pets remained in second place with $40.3 million in 47 markets over the weekend for totals of $257.10 million internationally and $592.87 million worldwide. The film’s biggest opening was in Japan, where it earned $9.6 million over four days.

Line Walker was next with $27.39 million over the weekend for a total opening of $36.31 million. All but $112,000 of that came from China. The $112,000 came from Australia.

Jason Bourne remained in fourth place with $18.6 million in 59 markets for totals of $119.4 million internationally and $246.4 million worldwide. It best new market of the weekend was France, where it earned first place with $3.44 million on 619 screens over the weekend for a four-day opening of $3.88 million. It had to settle for second place in Germany with $3.93 million on 529 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $3.22 million.

Love O2O rounded out the top five with $18.34 million over the weekend in its native China for a total opening of $18.45 million including previews.

Finding Dory fell to eighth place with $8.1 million in 27 markets for totals of $420.6 million internationally and $897.3 million worldwide. There were no major market openings this weekend, and there are no major market openings this coming weekend. It opens in Scandinavia the weekend after that, so it should bounce back on the box office.
