And a fine internet industry journal tells us:
... Doctor Strange debuted in 33 markets – about 45% of its international footprint — this weekend, and one frame ahead of the domestic (and China) release. The $86M start magically bested predictions. ...
Trolls put $30M in the happy place in 40 markets for a $61.7M cume ahead of the U.S. release. With No. 1s in 13 markets including Russia ($3.3M) and Brazil ($1.7M), the animated Fox release held well in France ($4.7M, up 13% for an $11.6M cume) and the UK ($4.1M, up 8%, $17.8M cume). Released by Oriental DreamWorks in China, the opening was $5M for the No. 5 slot. ...
Storks flapped up another $5.2M in 62 markets as it approaches the $100M mark with a current $93.2M. With kids off from school, France jumped 3% over last weekend for a cume of $4.1M. The UK dipped just 7% for $6.5M in the next and Germany opened to $503K on 470 screens. ...
The Secret Life of Pets woofed it past $500M internationally earlier this weekend and over the frame added $1.6M in 41 territories. That takes the offshore cume to $501M and the worldwide total to $867.4M. ...
* Rentrak used to be a comprehensive and useful tracker of international box office, but everything of worth has gone behind a pay wall, and the little bit that is still out there seems pretty worthless. (Especially this week, where a lot of the numbers are wrong). A shame, but the way it appears to be.
