Worldwide Box Office

The animation movies (and affiliates thereof) do well.

Foreign Weekend Box Office -- (World Totals)

Home -- $15,200,000 -- ($242,253,497)

Cinderella -- $12,600,000 -- ($436,773,726)

Spongebob Squarepants -- $3,200,000 -- ($303,605,040)

Of course, the biggest story of the box office weekend was how fast Furious 7 was closing in on a billion dollars worth of ticket sales.

Furious 7 [is] far and away the leader of the pack, adding $195M this frame at 22,000 theaters in 66 territories. That’s a slight 20.4% drop from its opening and brings the offshore cume to $548M through Sunday. The 11 days it took to pass $500M internationally is a record-setter for Universal. The worldwide cume is now $800.5M after 12 days. ...

DreamWorks Animation’s Home zoomed past the $100M international box office mark this frame, cuming $112.7M thus far. The Fox release added $15.2M from 8,363 screens in 67 markets. Among the key highlights, Brazil opened to $2.25M from 675 screens for a No. 2 slot behind F7. The UK has amassed $27.7M after four frames, adding $2.2M this weekend for a 38% drop. ...

Disney’s Cinderella swept up another $12.6M at the international box office this frame, taking the offshore total to $256M in 54 markets. Holds were strong with Australia notably dropping only 10% for a 2nd place finish behind Furious 7. China is still tops for the Kenneth Branagh-directed live action fairy tale, ending the run there at $69.8M. The UK ($22.2M), Italy ($15.9M), Mexico ($15.1M) and Australia ($11.8M) round out the Top 5. There is still Japan to come on April 25. ...

Pixar's Inside Out debuts June 15, while Illumination Entertainment's Minions hits international theater chains on July 10. DreamWorks Animation and Walt Disney Animation Studios will release no more animated features this year. Blue Sky Studios, owned by Fox, releases The Peanuts Movie November 6, while Pixar rolls out The Good Dinosaur, its second movie of the year, on November 25.
