International Box Office: Bourne Bounces Back with $56.2 million

August 31st, 2016

Jason Bourne

Jason Bourne returned to first place with $56.2 million on 10,247 screens in 62 markets for totals of $197.73 million internationally and $347.01 million worldwide. The film earned first place in China with $23.96 million over the weekend for a six-day opening of $49.13 million. The entire six day opening is included in the weekend number. Its total in China is already better than the lifetime totals for any other film in the franchise. The film wasn’t quite as potent in Mexico, but it still did well earning first place with $1.53 million over the weekend, which is the best opening in the franchise.

Ice Age: Collision Course returned to the top five earning second place with $50 million in 37 markets for totals of $360 million internationally and $368 million worldwide. Its biggest opening was in China, where it earned second place with $23.16 million over the weekend for a six-day opening of $42.70 million. Like the above film, its six-day opening is included in its weekend number.

The Secret Life of Pets fell to third place with $24.9 million on 9,608 screens in 57 markets for totals of $371.61 million internationally and $724.95 million worldwide. The film opened in first place in Brazil with $4.9 million, which was more than enough to earn first place. It was approximately as much as the rest of the market combined made. Its best holdover was in Russia, where it made $4.93 million on 1,290 screens over the weekend for a two-week total of $25.01 million.

Suicide Squad dropped a couple of spots to fourth place with $19.6 million in 55 markets over the weekend for totals of $353.1 million internationally and $636.1 million worldwide. The film had no major market openings, but it debuts in Japan on September 10th, so its run isn’t over. At this pace, the film will finish with over $700 million, which should be enough to cover its production budget and most of its advertising budget. If it doesn’t break even, then someone at Warner Bros. screwed up.

Lights Out reached the top five for the first time in its run with $9.6 million in 55 markets for totals of $60.2 million internationally. The film was surprisingly strong in South Korea earning second place with $2.95 million on 659 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $3.90 million. Since the film only cost $5 million to make, it has already broken even, unless its global P&A budget was much higher than anticipated.

Finding Dory rose to ninth place with $6.1 million in 19 markets for totals of $449.5 million internationally and $929.1 million worldwide. The film debuted in Scandinavia over the weekend for a total opening of $2.6 million in the four markets. By comparison, Zootopia earned $2.6 million in its openings in those markets, on its way to totals of $15.2 million. On the other hand, Inside Out earned just shy of $3.0 million on its way to totals of $16.8 million. If the film had no more markets left to open in, it would finish with about $950 million worldwide. However, it has yet to open in Italy and Germany. Zootopia and Inside Out made totals of $42.2 million and $60.1 million, respectively, in those markets. If Finding Dory can match the average of those two results, then it will reach $1 billion worldwide.
