Posted February 28, 2011 8:55 am by fantasia_kitty
With The Voyage of the Dawn Treader‘s opening weekend in Japan doing quite well, the movie has now officially made more money overseas than Prince Caspian did.
Turbocharged in Japan and taking the No. 1 spot was Fox’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which opened to $6.4 million from about 1,000 venues (83% of the gross came from 3D sites). Foreign cume overall stands at $284.1 million.
Prince Caspian opened in Japan at $5.2million.
Prince Caspian‘s overseas box office total was $278,043,288, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader‘s overseas box office is somewhere between $282.6mil and $284.1mil depending on which BoxOfficeMojo’s source you want to believe.
Now what remains to be seen is whether or not The Voyage of the Dawn Treader will be able to catch up to Prince Caspian‘s worldwide box office total. Though that may be a bit of a stretch, it’s not impossible. Here are the current numbers.
Domestic: $141,621,490 + Foreign: $278,043,288 = Worldwide: $419,664,778
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader:
Domestic: $103,542,776 + Foreign: $282,600,000 = Worldwide: $386,142,776
