‘Dawn Treader’ Crosses $300m Overseas
The Los Angeles Times is reporting that The Voyage of the Dawn Treader‘s foreign box office total has exceeded $300m:
But the movie has only grossed $107.3 million in the U.S. and Canada. That’s less than the last two “Narnia” movies, 2005’s “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and 2008’s “Prince Caspian,” which collected $291.7 million and $141.6 million domestically, respectively.
The first film did fantastically overseas, ending up with $453.3 million. But the third film has already exceeded the international total of “Prince Caspian,” which only took in $278 million in the foreign markets where it played.
“Dawn Treader” has performed well in France, Russia, the United Kingdom and Japan, where despite local tragedy the film grossed $1.4 million this weekend.
These numbers indicate that the film’s worldwide box office total is over $407m, still short of Prince Caspian‘s $420m.
