BRAZIL: 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' Cooks Up $3.1M Debut
on October 09, 2013
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 beat the forecast in its opening weekend, shattering the $1.3 million earned by the original's debut with a $3.1 million bow. That is nearly a 250% improvement for the animated sequel, which should easily surpass the original's $7.5 million lifetime gross in Brazil. Cloudy 2's $4,763 per-screen average was the market-leader by a wide margin.
Elysium posted a strong hold in its third frame, finishing the weekend in second place with a $1.26 million take. The sci-fi flick has maintained a strong per-screen average with a $3,364 tally, representing a 24% drop in both weekend box office and PSA from the previous frame. Elysium has grossed a total of $6.9 million from the territory. Elysium features two Brazilian stars in its supporting cast, a factor that has helped draw attention to Neil Blomkamp's sci-fi flick.
Domestic film Mato Sem Cachorro opened in third place with a $1.23 million bow from 382 screens. Runner Runner enjoyed a limited release in its opening weekend, taking $519k from 132 screens for a $3,933 per-screen average.
