Box Office News from Overseas
BoxOfficeMojo has a really good report on their site with some overseas numbers for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. It’s doing very well in some countries and very poor in others. Here’s what they write:
After a rough domestic start, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader saved some face with a solid overseas debut. Reigning champ Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 moved down to second place, while Tangled continued to assert its dominance over Megamind in the animated arena.
Dawn Treader grossed $65.8 million for a total of $79.8 million, and opened in first place in all of its major territories. Its biggest market was Russia, where it had a series-best $10.9 million debut. Including last weekend’s previews, it earned $7.1 million in Mexico and $5.3 million in South Korea, both of which were also highs for the Narnia franchise.
In other significant territories, though, Dawn Treader didn’t fare so well compared to its predecessors. Its $6.3 million in France was similar to Prince Caspian‘s opening, but way off from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Things were even worse in the United Kingdom, where its $3.9 million take was less than half that of Prince Caspian, which was already down from the first movie. Dawn Treader sets out to add to its total with openings in Germany and Italy this weekend.
