Foreign Earnings

The Croods opens well overseas.

20th Century Fox’s first release of a DreamWorks Animation title ... opened substantially if not spectacularly on the foreign theatrical circuit, grossing $63.3 million at 11,870 venues in 47 markets covering 86 countries.

The adventure comedy about a pre-historic family embarking on a road trip scored the second highest offshore opening launch of 2013, bested by the foreign opening Disney’s Oz The Great and Powerful, which drew $69.9 million a fortnight ago. Nonetheless, Croods racked up powerful numbers in its seven largest markets, and scored No. 1 debuts in a total of 44 territories. ...

Having seen this pup, I think it connects better than DWA's previous release, so we'll see how it holds up over the next month. Hazarding a guess, I'd put its global revenue in the half billion dollar range.
