International Top Five - Jump High on the International Charts

February 21st, 2008

Jumper landed on top of the international chart during its opening weekend with $29.37 million on 2828 screens in 30 markets, 20 of which the film opened in first place. These number one debuts include the U.K. where it earned $5.99 million on 406 screens and South Korea where it made $4.02 million on 429 screens over the weekend and $5.07 million in total. The film earned nearly identical result in Spain ($3.74 million on 447 screens) and in Russia ($3.71 million on 422 screens), while it earned $3.15 million on 273 screens in Australia placing first in all three markets.

Asterix At The Olympic Games slid into second place with $15.11 million on 4113 screens in 25 markets for a total of $93.23 million so far. The film had no major openings this week, but it is still in first place in France adding $6.47 million on 1019 screens over the weekend for a total of $44.06 million. By next week the film will have crossed $100 million internationally, but there's almost no chance it will even earn a theatrical release here.

National Treasure: The Book of Secrets climbed into third place with $12.67 million on 3002 screens in 38 markets for a total of $202.28 million. This includes a second place opening in France with $5.75 million on 625 screens while it added $2.92 million on 493 screens in the U.K. for a two-week total of $11.08 million. The film crossed $200 million earlier than expected, and is roughly a week away from matching its domestic score.

Jodhaa Akbar became the latest Indian film to place high on the charts during its opening. It earned fourth place with $8.07 million on 1105 screens in 15 markets and is well on its way to profitability.

Rounding out the top five is 27 Dresses, which returned to the charts with $6.98 million on 1690 screens in 22 markets for a total of $22.60 million. The film was aided by a third place opening in Germany where it managed $2.61 million on 509 screens while in Mexico it took top spot with $1.12 million on 407 screens over the weekend and $1.54 million in total. Next up in terms of major markets is Spain in a couple of weeks while the movie hasn't debuted in France, the U.K., Italy, and other major markets.
