Boy oh boy, Black Swan is really making the rounds out there, second weekend in a row in first place while possible Best Picture winner in 3 days (Oscars), The King’s Speech, is just as impressive. More about those 2 and 8 others right after the break.
$17.6 million was enough for Black Swan to win again and it now stands at $101.6 million for a worldwide total of $203.6 million. I think soon enough I might need to revise upwards my previous $250 million prediction when it comes to Black Swan‘s final worldwide gross.
The King’s Speech was 2nd with $15.8 million, up from a week ago thanks to some new markets where it just opened. This is now at $130.7 outside North America and $236.2 million worldwide, absolutely insane. Out of that total $60.3 million was made in the UK (The Queen made $18.3 million), second highest territory after North America.
While still in 3rd, Tangled eased to $12.1 million (from $17.5 a weekend before) and now stands at $328 million internationally and $522.3 million worldwide. While it started rolling a week before, No Strings Attached made its debut in the top 10 only this past weekend at number 4 with $10.9 million for a $21.9 million total. This still has a lot more territories to open in so expect even higher numbers in the coming weeks.
Yogi Bear at number 5 was flat, $10.4 million compared to $10.3 a week before. $77.9 million is the new total for this crappy flick while top 10 regular Rien a Declarer (Nothing to Declare) made another $10.2 million for $59.5 million, $51 million coming exclusively from France.
One of my favorite movies of last year and also nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, True Grit, was 7th with $10.1 million thanks to 20 more countries it just opened in. Unfortunately westerns have a tendency to not perform to well outside the US of A so this one has only grossed $29 million thus far. Hopefully with France and Germany this weekend, it can go up a notch.
In 8th place is a movie I very recently enjoyed very very much, Paul opened with $9 million in the UK (and only there for the time being). This opens on March 18th in North America, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, don’t need to say more then that, go and see it, you won’t be sorry.
Finally Gnomeo and Juliet in 9th place and Sanctum in 10th place, Gnomeo with $8.2 million for $15.8 million and the other made $7.6 million for $40.4 million.
