International Box Office: Django Remains Top Draw
Django Unchained won the international race with $30.28 million on 5,990 screens in 65 markets for a running total of $158.36 million. Worldwide, its total has reached $309.31 million. It is just a week away from overtaking Inglourious Basterds as Quentin Tarantino's biggest hit of his career. The film had no major market openings, which makes its hold more impressive. Its best market was Germany, where it made $6.61 million on 708 screens over the weekend for a total of $30.78 million after three.
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters rose to second place with $16.64 million on 3,436 screens in 36 markets for a total of $63.95 million. This is likely more than it will end up with domestically, and it has yet to open in a number of major markets. It opens in Australia this weekend, but also has openings in the U.K., Spain, Germany, France, and other markets ahead. If it can cross the century mark internationally, then it should be able to break even sooner rather than later.
Lincoln rose to third place with $13.20 million on 3,557 screens in 43 markets for a total of $32.90 million internationally. In France, it debuted in second place with $2.92 million on 312 screens, which is better than most international markets have been treating the film.
Cloud Atlas returned to the international chart with $11.97 million in 12 markets over the week for a total of $72.14 million. The film debuted in China over the weekend, but no information was released.
Les MisÚrables remained in fifth place with $11.4 million on 2,997 screens in 40 markets for totals of $198.00 million internationally and $339.5 million worldwide. It had no major market openings this past weekend, but it did remain in first place in the U.K. with $4.38 million on 562 screens over the weekend for a total of $47.37 million.
The Berlin File debuted with $10.57 million on 894 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $15.20 million. This was enough for first place in its native South Korea and sixth place internationally.
Life of Pi fell to seventh place with $10.49 million on 5,010 screens in 48 markets for totals of $444.91 million internationally and $551.02 million worldwide. It is mostly done, but it is a huge success, so the studio should be more than happy with its run.
Flight entered the top ten for the first time with $9.51 million on 2,028 screens in 23 markets. This was enough for eighth place on the international chart, while it pushed its relatively early total to $23.04 million. It opened in third place in both the U.K. with $2.20 million on 387 screens and in Australia with $1.91 million on 239.
Miracle In Cell No.7 slipped a spot to ninth with $9.12 million on 866 screens over the weekend for a total of $27.62 million after two weeks of release in South Korea.
Silver Linings Playbook reached the top ten for the first time in two months. It earned tenth place with $8.60 million on 1,662 screens in 23 markets for a total of $28.61 million. It debuted in second place in Australia with $2.44 million on 242 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $3.44 million. It managed fourth place in France with $1.91 million on 253.
Skyfall fell out of the top ten, down 82% to $6.54 million on 5,367 screens in 25 markets for totals of $792.32 million internationally and $1.095 million worldwide. It is now the seventh biggest hit of all time.
