‘The Garfield Movie’ Purrs Past $150M WW; ‘Furiosa’ Battles To $114M – International Box Office

Refresh for latest…: It may be a stretch, but we could coin a new phrase and call this the cat days of spring. To wit: Sony/Alcon’s The Garfield Movie, which began early overseas release last month, took the No. 1 spot for Hollywood on the domestic, international, and global charts this frame.

The offshore session in 60 markets was $27.1M, lifting worldwide to $152.2M. The voracious kitty had paws aplenty with overseas markets down just 3% from last weekend. The international box office cume is now $100.7M.

In China, Alcon partnered with Stars Collective to distribute the film via China Film Group and Alibaba Pictures and opened to $8.2M, starting from Saturday. In two days, Garfield has surpassed the lifetimes of Puss In Boots: The Last Wish and Migration.

The tabby added such new markets this session as Poland with $2.4M, which is 45% higher than The Secret Life of Pets 2Australia debuted to $2M and Indonesia bowed with $700K, 8% above Puss In Boots: The Last Wish.

In holdover markets, Germany climbed 131% to take over the top slot in its fourth weekend for a local total of $7.6M. The UK came back for seconds down just 5% in its sophomore session for a cume of $8.1M. Mexico has now preyed upon $19M, which is 9% ahead of the lifetime of The Secret Life of Pets 2. Malaysia jumped up 21% in its second weekend to elevate its cume to $1.5M, the fourth highest total of the year for a Hollywood title in the market.

Still to release markets include France and Japan.

Following its muted debut last session, Warner Bros’ Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga had a $21M international weekend in 77 markets; a good 38% drop from the holdovers but coming off of a low base. The overseas total is now $64.7M for $114.4M global. 

There were some strong holds, including Germany (-4%), Belgium (-24%), France (-26%), Brazil (-27%), Australia (-30%), Korea (-30%), Holland (-32%) and Saudi Arabia (-39%).

Korea is a standout here where the movie is still No. 1 and has grossed $8.2M. Imas has generated $18M global. China, where the movie will release as the first ever of the franchise, is due to join to road race on June 7.

20th Century/Disney’s Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes continues to show playability with just a 28% drop from last weekend overseas, adding $15.2M in 52 material markets for a $197.1M international cume.
