... The total foreign cume for Hotel Transylvania 2 is $29.2M in 6,500 runs in 42 markets, including Latin America where it grossed an estimated $20.3M — more than 2.5 times the original for the same group of markets, Sony said.

It’s about 150% higher than the original, which Sony noted, at current rates for the same group of markets, puts Hotel T2 ahead of top sequels Monsters University (+3%), Rio 2 (+8%), How to Train Your Dragon 2 (+29%), and Ice Age: The Meltdown (+76%). This weekend’s markets represent 32% of the total international release for Hotel T2. ...

MINIONS crossed $800M at the international box office after a weekend estimate of $6.8M in 49 territories. The animated film had its final theatrical release in Greece this weekend to No. 1 (and 35% bigger than Despicable Me 2) and now has a total of $800.7M. ...

Jurassic World continues its billion-dollar climb, grossing an estimated $640k in the 14 territories where it’s still playing for a new international total of about $1.012 billion. ...
