March 16th, 2017

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island opened in first place on the international chart with $85.1 million in 65 markets, which is more than $3 million higher than Sunday’s estimates. The film’s biggest market was the U.K., where it earned $7.58 million in 567 theaters. It also did well in Mexico ($5.58 million); in Russia ($4.87 million on 1,283 screens); and in Australia ($3.55 million on 523). Impressively, the film broke the record for biggest opening in Vietnam with $2.2 million on 377 screens.

Logan was pushed into second place with $69.1 million in 79 markets for totals of $284.4 million internationally and $437.3 million worldwide. China continues to be the film’s biggest market adding $18.60 million over the weekend for a two-week total of $87.36 million in that market. Second place goes to the U.K. where it has $20.49 million, including $4.69 million in 602 this past weekend. However, Brazil might surpass it at the box office, as it earned $5.9 million over the weekend for a running tally of $18.2 million.

A Dog’s Purpose remained in third place with $17.4 million in 40 markets for totals of $78.7 million internationally and $140.5 million worldwide. The film grew by 25% in China earning $21.58 million over the weekend for a two-week total of $53.78 million.

Badrinath Ki Dulhania earned fourth place with $9.55 million in 13 markets on the international chart. It is rare for Bollywood films to reach the top five. More impressively, Badrinath Ki Dulhania had the biggest March debut in India with Rs 43.05 crores, which is $6.56 million. It showed strong growth throughout the weekend, which is a good sign for its legs going forward.

Moana returned to the top five with $7.0 million in 29 markets for totals of $348.8 million internationally and $596.3 million worldwide. It managed to return to the chart almost entirely due to its first place, $6.3 million opening weekend in Japan. Furthermore, the film crossed $600 million worldwide on Wednesday. This is a great run for an animated film.
