International Box Office: Death Can’t Stop The Maze Runner’s $62.6 million Weekend

February 1st, 2018

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Maze Runner: The Death Cure jumped into first place on the international chart with $62.6 million in 70 markets for an early international total of $82.0 million. The film opened in first place in China with $22.80 million over the weekend for a total opening of $23.07 million. On the other hand, the film struggled in the U.K. earning third place with just $3.19 million in 507 theaters. By the end of the weekend, the studio’s share of the worldwide box office was over $40 million, which is fantastic for a film that cost $61 million to make. It should have no trouble breaking even early in its home market run, if not sooner.

Secret Superstar remained in second place with $19.48 million over the weekend, all of which came from China. The film now has $66.26 million in that market, while its legs put it on pace to hit $100 million before too long.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle fell to third place with $17.7 million in 92 markets for totals of $484.0 million internationally and $821.8 million worldwide. At this point, $900 million worldwide is getting more and more likely.

Coco rose to fourth place with $13.6 million in 34 markets for totals of $477.8 million internationally and $680.5 million worldwide. The film doesn’t open in Japan until March 16th and by the time it is finished there, it should have $750 million worldwide.

Forever Young fell to third place in China and fifth place internationally with $12.19 million over the weekend for a total of $96.18 million after three weeks of release. It hit $100 million there during the week.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi fell out of the top five, but it had a major milestone, so it is worth tracking for a little while longer. This weekend, it earned $4.8 million in 37 markets for totals of $700.7 million internationally and $1.311 billion worldwide. It became just the 26th film to reach $700 million internationally and should climb at least a couple of more places on that chart. Worldwide, it is in ninth place on the all-time chart, but that’s probably as far as it will go.
