The Adventures of Tintin spent another weekend at the top of the international box office thanks to little to no competition. Besides the usual suspects, French flick Intouchables found its way into the top 5.
Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin had another good weekend with $39 million made from 45 markets. After two weeks the movie stands at a respectable $123.4 million. Like I already said, respectable but it still has a long way to go before we can call it a hit. On the bright side, there are still loads of territories where The Adventures of Tintin hasn’t opened yet.
Puss in Boots was 2nd with $16.9 million for a new total of $36.5 million internationally. What’s really impressive is Puss only opened in 4 countries so far. Worldwide the animated flick stands at $118.6 million and if the $130 million budget is to be believed, then this movie is definitely on the right track to profitability.
Strange enough, In Time was 3rd with $16.8 million, somewhat of a bump from the $15.3 million made a week before. With $37.6 million internationally and $62.8 million worldwide, In Time will very soon eclipse the $72.6 million made by the previous Andrew Niccol directed flick, Lord of War (Nicholas Cage), thus becoming his most successful feature film.
4th place belongs to the French comedy I wrote about in the introduction, Intouchables. Now if only IMDB would work properly, I’d know a lot more about Intouchables, alas, I shall improvise. Here’s a trailer in French for the francophones out there (of which, sorry to say, I ain’t). Also the movie made $15 million, most of that (98% to be more exact) from France. This is no Dany Boon flick (so I ain’t so francophone-less after all) but it did score the 4th best opening of the year in the country with one of the hottest first ladies out there.
Paranormal Activity 3 was 5th with $13.6 million for $77.1 million so far internationally, on the way to $100 million, besting the $92.8 million made by Paranormal Activity 2. When it comes to worldwide totals, Paranormal Activity 3 will not only beat the 2nd film but also the original, $200 million and more being the target.
Outside the top 5, Real Steel made another $10.7 million for a worldwide total of $206.6 million while Tower Heist debuted in 7th place with $9.3 million.
In 8th place Johnny English Reborn made $7.6 million ($147.4 million worldwide), Rise of the Planet of the Apes also $7.6 million ($468.9 million) and Contagion grossed $5 million ($120 million).
The undeniable star of last week, RA One, took a huge nosedive to about $1.96 million from India and under $1 million from the rest of the world.
