‘Dawn Treader’ Nearing Caspian’s Box Office

Although most fans are able to see The Voyage of the Dawn Treader on Blu-ray and DVD, it has still not quite completed its box office run. BoxOfficeMojo’s most recent update puts the film’s total at $415.6m worldwide. This is still short of Prince Caspian ($420m) and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ($745m).

The film’s domestic total ($104m) is still well below the other two films ($291 for LWW, and $141 for PC). Internationally, VDT has grossed $311m, which tops PC’s $278m, but falls short of LWW’s $453m.

The most recent issue of Variety includes a familiar image of the Dawn Treader with the box office total. View it here.

    I agree with Mayor in the fact that evil is so foreign to Narnia that it is extremely noticible when present
    The white witch is an example, when she came out of Charn and into Narnia when it was finished being created, she held Narnia in winter for 100 years, just to prove the point that the slightest bit of evil is very evident Jus to prove that the green mist is definetly foreign to Narnia and might be a form of Satan

  2. I've read the origional version. So I know what I'm talking about.

  3. Right now, if given the choice of whether to see The Hobbit or The Magician's Nephew, I would immediately choose The Hobbit. VDT and PC were very disappointing.

    That's what bothered me the most,THAT STINKING EDITING! Forgive me,i know it must be hard to edit a movie into time constraints, (most likely set by one of the suits on top)that you had no hand in filming and on top of that you could not go back and film cohesive connector scenes.But i wish they could have planned a little better.

  5. narniapinoy says:

    I don't care but I'll watch The Magician's Nephew for sure then the Hobbit! ^^

    PC isn't disappointing, the only disappointing part is It didn't gross like the first film for sure you won't be saying that if it gross like LWW hahaha LOL and off course I love VDT movie! it isn't perfect but I love it!^^

  6. narniapinoy says:

    LWW is the well known book period, not just it followed the book. Also LWW book has a great structure for a movie to adapt not like the other succeeding book. Do your homework before commenting hahaha LOL.

  7. Avra says:

    Shelly,that's terrible!

  8. Anhun says:

    S/he wasn't accusing you of not reading the book. When s/he said "if you haven't read the book . . . " s/he was using the general you. Another way of saying it would be "Even people who haven't read the book are likely to have seen a previous version."

    It's a point worth considering when discussing the popularity of the films. Any Narnia film other than LWW has to be an exceptionally well-made, exciting, unique, knock-your-socks-off-and-tell-your-neighbours-about-it sort of film, with excellent marketing to boot, in order to make that kind of money.

  9. Not Of This World says:

    Wow! That's Awesome! I'm a little suprised Japan keeps bringing in money even after a horrable disaster like that.

  10. Mayor Wilkins says:

    Right. It makes perfect sense to me. 😉
    Also consider that a witch is often defined as…
    "A being (usually female) imagined to have special powers derived from the devil."
    So connections to both The White Witch and the Green Lady are obviously likely…They are his representatives.

    Obviously Satan would be more powerful than them if he gave them their power. But nowhere in the film is the Green Mist more powerful than Aslan. Far from it. The evil of "Dawn Treader" depends entirely on the choice of the people. All it could do was set the stage and make tempting suggestions, using fear as a motivator. Even its physical form was ultimately determined by Edmund. But I'm not surprised it was a giant snake.

    Understand that I don't expect anyone to "subscribe" to my viewpoint.
    But I also feel it is worth mentioning. Let's face it, it's fun to speculate about this stuff. 😉

  11. Queen C The Gentle says:

    That's good. So I guess it's really time for Ed+Lu to move on from Narnia…I just watched the movie again+I cried again when I saw the ending, I mean I really understand of why they can't return to Narnia… It's time to move on, it's not saying goodbye, it's just saying see you later b/c they'll return someday.

    If I were to go to Narnia, I understand why I would be told I couldn't return b/c you got to experience a whole new life but then you have to return to your world to live your own life like Aslan said…It'd be hard but not only me, but anybody would have to accept it.

    I really am going to miss the siblings, all 4 of them with all my heart.

  12. Not Of This World says:

    Make that two people's point of veiw, Queen Elizebeth! 🙂

  13. Samuel carvalho says:

    Avran, shut up!

  14. Samuel carvalho says:

    So good that in Brazil, Prince Caspian, is hardly known!
    The campaign markting Fox is much, much higher than that of Disney!

  15. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    yes, the editing in PC was so poor because it made the film drag, but the editing for VDT was entirely baffling and schizo. Like the suits came in and said, "we can't afford to make it full length, go in and chop out 20% by tommorow." Like something you'd see in a film school production. I cannot BELEIVE they put it out like that.

  16. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    @Arvan- haven't you ever heard of the Tasmanian devil? ha ha

  17. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    ahhhhhhhhh, finally got it. thank you for your sympathy, Avra. only people here could know what that torture was like. I've only waited 2 and a half YEARS to have that lovely thing in my hands. it took EIGHT DAYS from a certain major bookstore. got the bluray even though i don't have a player just to get a digital copy. I LOVED the extra footage, it was exactly what it lacked, wish i could add it into the final cut. it had actual DIALOGUE too, how about that? what a concept!!

  18. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    me too, with all my heart, they seem like actual real friends. that's why i wasn't that keen on reading the other narnia books. it was an interesting choice on cs lewis' part to drop the pevensies and go with new characters. it was great they came back in LB. wish they were featured more in it. seeing lucy and edmund grow up in the movies was sad too. you know time is passing when little lucy is too old to be in narnia. And seeing georgie grow up in real life is freaking me out too!

  19. Mayor Wilkins says:

    Oh gosh. Anhun's right.
    I meant the general you or the "Universal You."
    I meant no offense. 😉

  20. Anhun says:

    Like the suits came in? The suits did come in and say that. Apted and co were mostly finished with post-production when they were told they had to cut a half hour or so out of the film to make the 3D conversion less expensive.

  21. CitizenCairParavel says:

    Why did they pull N3 so soon from Japan? It would have surpassed PC if they had left it in for another 2-3 weeks where it was doing well. That just did NOT make sense.

  22. Arvan says:

    Ah, so polite! But you're late. I "shut up" two days ago. Let mature people talk calmly and politely about their opinions. If you can't be kind to people with different views than yourself, you shouldn't be making comments here.

  23. Pepper Darcy says:

    I was waiting to see who won the bet!! 😀

  24. Arvan says:

    You think you're really clever, don't you!

  25. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, so THAT'S what actually happened to this movie!!! thank you –

  26. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    they should have cut out the beginning then, the standing in line, the long beginning in britain then. they could have established alll that like the part with the bikes, etc by just a simple discussion in the bedroom. BIG BUMMER

  27. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    IN OTHER WORDS, you meant, "y'all" : )

  28. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    maybe another movie was already booked.

  29. DancingInRain says:

    Off topic:I saw Gnomeo and Juilet last night and then I saw the end, and it was Jame McAvoy as Gnomeo! I was like 'huh! That's sooo cool!' I feel bad I didn't even notice it though during the movie. 'Back on topic. Go Dt!

  30. Rilian The Disenchanted says:

    It could be because Fox's other blockbuster came into Japanese theatres, namely Gulliver's Travels. Just someting i noticed, the exact same week as Voyage is pulled out of the theatres.

  31. Queen C The Gentle says:

    Man, is Locked In(Ben Barnes) ever going to show here or come out on dvd?

  32. Queen_Emilie says:

    That's a wonderful news! if VDT will pass by PC's total box-office, producers will be longing to make MN better than the first three films! I just made a Narnia epic tribute for us fans in facebook. Please watch it here http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/video/video.php?v=211783572184678&oid=190647217857&comments&notif_t=video_comment hope you like it!

  34. Aslan's #1 fan says:

    Sorry, I have to put in my two cents in. But I have to say VDT was better than PC because in PC the kissing scene was annoying but the fact that Aslan let it happen with out at least saying something? Common! The Aslan in the book would have said something or prevented a pointless romance that wouldn't go anywhere. In VDT Aslan was more real and didn't put up with vanity and silly romances.And he was in control, if it hadn't been for him in the end. They all would have died. The characters had the same or more dependancy on him that in PC, but that's just from my point of view. And besides I got a lot out of VDT, God used it to help me in my life to learn a vital lesson, and well thats all I can say.
    God Bless!

    Happy B-Day William Mosely!

  37. Aslan's #1 fan says:

    I saw VDT again, (sigh). I love that movie! MN here I come!!!!!!!!

  38. Aslan's #1 fan says:

    Don't make me cry again!!!!
    I'm just getting used to the idea, (even though I knew it was coming.)Eustace and Jill, are the future (and Digory and Polly too). MN please come…please……………………………….. 😉

  39. Aslan's #1 fan says:

    Read the rest for sure!!!! When they make the Last Battle I will bawl like a baby. The Eustace and Jill are amazing and if they do anything close to the stories of the other four it will be as good or better than the last three!!!!

    narnia 3 is a good movie
    my favorite heroine always georgie Henley(Lucy)
    i love you georgie Henley plz you want see this email at any time contact my number is 9490161443 my place is India from andhrapradesh in tirupathi

  41. Ello says:

    Personally I thought VDT was the weakest of the films. It was far too juvenile for my tastes, although I thought the actor who portrayed Eustace was great. Still, I am glad to see that it is doing reasonably well so that we have a chance to see another Narnia film.

  42. Patrick says:

    I love the movie! It was so COOL! Will you make more NARNIA movies??????
    THE LAST BATTLE. I would have to say THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER is the best!
