BRAZIL: Sci-Fi Flicks Open in $3M Range Over Consecutive Weekends
on June 17, 2013
After Earth grossed $1.1 million to take its cume to $4.3 million, a 44% drop from the previous weekend. It might not be a marquee figure for After Earth, but should be considered a strong showing in a market where sci-fi hasn't been a huge draw. Star Trek Into Darkness opened in Brazil this weekend and took in $3.1 million from 407 locations. Paramount is happy with the result, a 70% bump from the lifetime gross of Star Trek's previous outing. Both sci-fi films opened in consecutive weekends and posted very similar opening weekend figures
Epic broke the $8 million mark in Brazil during its fifth weekend in release. The animated film is slowing down its run in Latin America after opening in the region in the first wave of its overseas release.
The Hangover Part III climbed to a $13.4 million cume in Brazil after posting another solid $1.6 million weekend. The comedy has been a big hit in Brazil, making it one of the leading markets for the film's $200 million overseas total.
