Your World Box Office

The Cartoons keep accumulating.

Weekend Foreign Box Office -- (World Grosses)

Rio 2 -- $48,000,000 -- ($276,863,098)

Frozen -- $7,600,000 -- ($1,129,173,000)

The Lego Movie -- $7,600,000 -- ($441,259,672)

Mr. Peabody and Sherman -- $2,200,000 -- ($258,682,777)

Rio 2 has outgrossed Mr. Peabody after three weeks in the world marketplace. ...

And Deadline tells us:

... Disney is having a fantastic run overseas with both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Frozen. The Marvel sequel has passed the $500M while Frozen has broken more records, becoming the highest international animated grosser of all time. Frozen is No. 1 in Japan where it is skating past the $100M market. ...

Rio 2 had a stupendous $48M gross from 65 markets this weekend with its biggest hold in China where it earned another $7.5M and raising its overall cume in the market to $23M. The animated Fox feature opened to No. 1 in Italy with $2.4M and among most holdover markets, the bird was sitting pretty at either the No. 1 post or a close 2nd among the new openers. ...

The Lego Movie built another $7.6M from roughly 2,980 screens (657K) admissions to bring its overall international cume to $189.4M. ...

People sometimes sneer at Fox/Blue Sky making all the sequels, but it shouldn't be a mystery. Blue Sky in particular has a sterling track record with blockbuster foreign returns with its franchises, so it's guaranteed the company will do more of them.
