March 2nd, 2017

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter rocketed to the top of the chart of the international chart with $96.67 million on 24,465 screens in 75 markets for totals of $211.87 million internationally and $238.52 million worldwide. The film opened in China over the weekend earning $90.76 million over the weekend and $92.98 million including Thursday previews. At this point, the studio’s share of the worldwide box office is approximately $80 million, or twice as much as it cost to make. If the film hasn’t already broken even, it will do so shortly. I know the film is called The Final Chapter, but I can see the franchise continuing, focusing almost entirely on the foreign market.

Fifty Shades Darker slipped to second place with $19.8 million on 8,227 screens in 59 markets for totals of $224.89 million internationally and $328.6 million worldwide. The film is coasting on holdovers at the moment and doesn’t have another major market opening until June when it opens in Japan.

Split returned to the top five in third place with $17.6 million on 4,207 screens in 54 markets for totals of $90.83 million internationally and $221.7 million worldwide. The film debuted in first place in South Korea with $5.24 million on 952 screens over the weekend for a total opening of $6.86 million. The film had to settle for second place in France with $3.6 million on 311 screens.

Assassin’s Creed returned to the chart for the first time in more than a month earning fourth place with $17.26 million over the weekend for totals of $172.0 million internationally and $226.6 million worldwide. Almost all of this came from the film’s second place, $16.69 million opening weekend in China. Adding in previews, and the film had a total opening of $17.01 million there.

The Great Wall remained in fifth place with $14.6 million in 46 markets for totals of $265.6 million internationally and $300.4 million worldwide. The film had a pair of first place debuts during the past weekend earning $2.8 million on 389 screens in Brazil and $1.4 million on 306 in Italy.
