International Box Office: Milestone for Mockingjay

December 4th, 2014

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 poster

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 remained in first place with $67.0 million in 86 markets for a two-week total of $254.6 million. Its worldwide total rose to $480.3 million. I would be surprised if the film hasn't already broken even, even though it will have the lowest box office in the franchise. The film remained in first place in Australia with $7.52 million on 574 screens over the weekend for a total of $22.69 million after two weeks of release. It was pushed into second place in the U.K., but still pulled in $7.69 million in 569 theaters for a two-week total of $33.32 million.

Interstellar was next with $44.4 million in 64 markets for a four-week total of $395.2 million international and $542.2 million worldwide. This includes $23.25 million in China, but that was for the full week, for a total of $108.69 million after three weeks of release.

Penguins of Madagascar rose to third place with $36.5 million on 7,930 screens in 47 territories for three-week total of $67.0 million. The film earned first place in Italy with $4.6 million, while it debuted in second place in Germany with $3.7 million. It fell to fourth place in China with $8.22 million for the full week, for a three-week total of $32.58 million.

Horrible Bosses 2 opened in fourth place with $11.7 million in 42 markets. Its biggest opening came in the U.K. with $1.97 million in 438 theaters, which is weaker than its start here. It is also 42% lower than the original's opening in that market. It earned third place in Russia with $1.70 million on 1,075 screens, which was a fraction of 1% above its predecessor's debut there.

Women Who Flirt opend in second place in China and fifth place internationally, with $11.5 million over the weekend for a total opening of $13.20 million.

Paddington opened in first place in the U.K. and sixth place internationally with $8.04 million in 518 theaters. On the other hand, it only managed $405,000 in Mexico, for a $8.50 million opening.

The Best, The Lost was next with $8 million, which I believe was earned in China. I've spent the past hour hunting down information for this movie and I've come up nearly empty handed. It might be the same movie as Back In Time, but I'm not sure that's true.

Fury was right behind with $7.9 million in 48 markets for a running tally of $89.8 million internationally. It will surpass $100 million internationally and $200 million worldwide is a solid goal.

Rise of the Legend pulled in $5.5 million over the weekend in China for a ten-day total of $25.69 million in that market.

Asterix: The Mansions Of The Gods rounded out the top ten with $5 million in France.
