International Box Office: Star Wars Adds Germany to its Record Collection

December 19th, 2015

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

We have more international numbers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and they are all positive. We’ve already talked about the U.K. numbers, but we learned the film opened in first place in Germany on Thursday, scoring $7.1 million, which is the biggest single day in that market. It also had the biggest opening day in Australia ($6.8 million); Brazil ($2.7 million); and many, many other smaller markets. Overall, it pulled in $58.6 million in 44 markets internationally for a two-day total of $72.7 million. With openings in Japan, Spain, and other markets on Friday, the film’s international weekend looks to be near record levels. It is currently roughly 10% ahead of Jurassic World’s two-day pace ($65.6 million), even though that film debuted in China, so if it can continue its hot streak, it will have the global opening weekend box office record ($524.42 million). After this start, even the low end of expectations has it topping $500 million worldwide over the weekend.
