International Box Office: Fantastic Beasts have another Century Weekend with $132.0 million

November 30th, 2016

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them remained in first place with $132.0 million in 67 markets for totals of $317.5 million internationally and $473.5 million worldwide. Its biggest debut came from China where it opened with $41.70 million, which is a little behind Doctor Strange’s opening earlier this month. On the other hand, the film is already $10 million ahead of what will be Doctor Strange’s lifetime total in the U.K. with $11.07 million in 666 theaters over the weekend for a two-week total of $37.52 million.

Moana opened in second place with $16.3 million in 12 markets. Its only major market was China, where it earned second place with $12.57 million. This is barely more than half of what Zootopia earned in that market during its opening; however, Moana earned the second biggest opening for a Disney Animation Studios release. That’s good news going forward.

Doctor Strange remained in third place with $9.8 million in 53 markets for totals of $410.9 million internationally and $616.7 million worldwide. The only new release for the week was in Argentina, where it earned $1.0 million. The film will end its international run on January 27th when it opens in Japan. The film will finish below average for the MCU, but will be the second best introductory movie in the franchise, below only Guardians of the Galaxy.

Allied opened in fourth place with $9.4 million in 23 markets. Its biggest market of the weekend was France with $2.8 million, while it earned second place in the U.K. with $1.66 million in 501 theaters. It’s too soon to tell where it will finish, but overall, this is not a great start.

Trolls rounded out the top five with $7.2 million in 59 markets for totals of $155.9 million internationally and $291.3 million worldwide. The film has made enough to cover its entire production budget and it has a few more markets left to open in. It will make a profit sometime during its home market run.
