Foreign Box Office

The global market for feature animation is relatively quiet, but Frozen keeps rolling along.

Weekend Foreign Box Office -- (World Totals)

Rio 2 -- $14,100,000 -- ($425,165,244)

Frozen -- $7,100,000 -- ($1,190,740,000)

Legends of Oz -- $000 -- ($3,705,376)

Mr. Peabody and Sherman is pretty much at the end of its run, earning $266,233,017, not enough to push it into the black. (It had a production budget of $145 million.) 59% of its gross came from overseas, 41% was run up in the United States and Canada. The Koch calculator (named for TAG President Emeritus Kevin Koch) showed slightly less than a 4:1 ratio for opening weekend to total run. (Not great. A 3:1 ratio is considered weak; 5:1 or better quite good.)

The next big animated release: How to Train Your Dragon 2. We should know soon after release if it heading for blockbuster territory.
