Refresh for latest…: DC Warner Bros/New Line black adam in its second offshore setting saw a strong hold, down just 45%. He added $39M of 76 offshore markets to take the race international ticket office total to $139 million for a worldwide cume until the Sunday of $250 million.
While superhero movies usually come preloaded, there were a number of black adam markets that saw only slight declines – school holidays helped in parts of Europe. Among the most notable are France (-19%), the Netherlands (-25%), Germany (-27%) and the United Kingdom (-38%).
The Dwayne Johnson-starrer continued to rank No. 1 in 60 overseas markets, including France, Germany, Spain, UK, Australia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Brazil and Mexico. In IMAX, he added $2.3 million to his overseas haul this session for a cumulative offshore of $8.2 million and $18 million worldwide in the format.
In comparable markets and using current exchange rates, the film is 42% ahead of Shazam!
The main markets to date are the UK ($15.3M), Mexico ($9.3M), Brazil ($8.4M), France ($8.2M) and Australia ($7.8M).
The photo taken by Jaume Collet-Serra has a little way to go before Black Panther: Wakanda Forever begins, and it is still in Japan to be released on December 2. At this time, we estimate a worldwide finish of around $400 million.
Whereas black adam has been a much-needed tent balm after a fallow period – and while it doesn’t totally blow the doors open – other titles continue on their merry trajectory.
Namely, Paramount Smile added $7 million from 62 overseas markets this weekend (-35%), and approaching $100 million overseas with $93.6 million until Sunday. Overall, it is $186 million and should cross $200 million in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Sony Lyle, Lyle Crocodile sang to $50.6 million overall. This weekend was good for $6 million in 40 overseas markets (down 12% in inventory). Internationally, and with several majors to come, it’s $18M.
Also of note, Searchlight’s The Banshees of Inisherin had good midweeks in the UK after its debut last weekend and saw a second drop of just 18% in the market. The total to date is $4.8 million.
Elsewhere in the buoyant and reliable Korean market, two new films were released this weekend – Yoon Jong-seok’s crime thriller Confession ($1.74M) and Lee Il-hyung’s drama Remember ($1.62 million) — but given the tragedy that unfolded in Seoul on Saturday night, when a surge of crowds at a Halloween celebration killed at least 153 people, attention is naturally turned elsewhere as the country enters a period of mourning.
