  1. Actuals on Box Office Mojo: Total Lifetime Grosses Domestic: $188,399,715 30.3% + Foreign: $433,995,226 69.7% = Worldwide: $622,394,941
  2. DHD DESPICABLE ME 3 Universal Pictures Racing around the globe, Illumination/Universal’s threequel has crossed $400M overseas with a weekend estimate of $71M in 61 markets. That lifts the cume so far to $431.4M abroad, and $619.4M worldwide. Indonesia was a new play this frame with the biggest opening day and weekend ever for an animated movie at $3.6M. After last session’s record China bow, DM3 is already the 4th biggest grossing animated movie ever in the Middle Kingdom, and the 2nd best non-Chinese animated title, behind Zootopia. With the blackout now in full swing, and DM3 the only Hollywood movie playing in these first weeks, the weekend was worth $20.8M at No. 2 behind fantasy pic Wukong. The total there is $113.6M. For the 3rd weekend in a row, DM3 is No. 1 in Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Portugal, Uruguay and Venezuela. Germany and Austria are holding No. 1 for the 2nd week in a row ahead of the opening of Spider-Man: Homecoming. Beyond China, market leaders are the UK ($33.2M), Mexico ($28.4M), Brazil($25.8M) and Australia ($22.5M). Japan, Korea, Italy and more are still on deck.
  3. DEADLINE DESPICABLE ME 3 Universal Pictures Illumination/Universal’s threequel has pushed the DM franchise across the $3B mark globally with $3.136B to date. That’s coming off of a great opening in China which broke records for first-day launchand weekend bows for an animated movie. With $139M in 60 markets this session, the international cume is now $298.4M for a global total of $447.6M. DM3 is running ahead of all comps, including Minions which was at $295M internationally at the same point of play, in the same markets and at today’s exchange rates. This weekend, the Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin-helmed film opened No. 1 in 7 markets. That makes 56 total markets where the story of brothers Gru and Dru has launched in the top spot. In China, Despicable Me 3 had the Gru-viest start ever for an animated movie with $66M or RMB 453M. (IMAX also notched a record for its best animated opening at $4M.) Friday’s $21.1M was 18% bigger than previous record-holder, Minions, in local currency and without previews. That film was given a Sunday date in September of 2015, following that year’s (unofficial) blackout period. Conversely, DM3 has the vaunted status of being the last Hollywood title released in the PROC ahead of what is likely going to be a long summer studio hiatus. (Bonus factoid: The first Despicablemovie never released in China.) France, where Illumination has a sort of home-team status, opened to $9.1M for the 2nd biggest company bow ever, behind Minions. Same goes for Germany which opened No. 1 with $8.5M. Belgium also is the 2nd best Illumination start ever at $1.4M — that’s the biggest animation opening of the year. Other openings included Switzerland ($1.1M), Austria ($973K), Iceland ($112K) and Trinidad ($94K, biggest Illumination bow ever). In holds, Portugal kept DM3 at No. 1, topping the arrival of Spider-Man: Homecoming for a $1.5M cume. The UK slipped to No. 2 behind Spidey with a $7.1M weekend for $25.7M to date. Mexico is looking at $6.1M this frame to lift the cume to $24.5M. Australia is in Week 4 and jumped 33% over last session thanks to school holidays. The total there is $18.4M. There are seven more territories to release over the next two months: Indonesia on July 12; Japan July 21; Korea July 26; Slovenia August 3; Italy August 24; Turkey August 25 and Greece August 31.
  4. DHD is running an exchange rate comp between DM3 and other animated films at same point in release: Looking at the like-for-like markets and at today’s exchanges, DM3 is running ahead of all comps, including Minions ($295M), The Secret Life Of Pets ($219M), Finding Dory ($210M), Despicable Me 2 ($195M), Zootopia ($175M), Frozen ($141M), Ice Age 4 ($202M) and Toy Story 3 ($186M). http://deadline.com/2017/07/spider-man-homecoming-opening-despicable-me-3-overseas-china-weekend-international-box-office-1202125675/
  5. Illumination’s Despicable Me 3 is number one at the international box office after $139m in 60 territories raised the international total to $298.4m, Universal sources said on Sunday morning. Including $149.2m from North America, the worldwide total is $447.6m. The animation has now debuted at number one in 56 markets after opening at number one in seven territories this weekend. China debuted at number one on $66m (RmB 453m) and has set the record for the biggest opening weekend for an animation feature after Friday’s $20.1m (RMB 136.9M) delivered the biggest opening day for an animated release in China. The weekend also established a record for the biggest animated IMAX opening weekend ever in China on $4m. The animation voiced by Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig debuted in France on $9.1m for first place and the second biggest Illumination opening weekend ever behind Minions, while Germany produced $8.5m at number one for Illumination’s second best opening weekend behind Minions in that market. Belgium, Switzerland and Austria each delivered number one debuts on $1.4m, $1.1m and $973,000, respectively. Meanwhile, Iceland and Trinidad generated number one hauls on $112,000 and $94,000 respectively. Despicable Me 3 held at number one in Portugal on $1.5m during its second weekend ahead of Spider-Man: Homecoming’s opening. The UK held at number two on $7.1m for $25.7m, while Mexico added $6.1m for $24.5m.Thanks to school holidays, Australia held at number two in week four on $3.5m for $18.4m, up 33% over last weekend. When compared to animated films in the same span of time and same markets at today’s exchange rates, Despicable Me 3 is ahead of Minions, The Secret Life Of Pets, Finding Dory, Despicable Me 2, Zootopia, Frozen, Ice Age 4, and Toy Story 3. There are seven more territories to release over the next two months, including Indonesia this week.
  6. @Jason would be great if you can do a detailed OS projection (best case/worst case/average) whenever you have time like you did with SLOP last year. Here are detailed breakdowns of the film's opening in around 45 OS markets with 15 markets not yet opened (China, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Italy, Switzerland being the big ones remaining). Screen and Deadline also have compared it, with today's exchange rates, to Frozen, Minions, DM2 and other big animated films so their comps should be interesting in the analysis. @peludo - also would be interested in your feedback since you and Jason are our ER and OS gurus. SCREEN ANALYSIS UNIVERSAL PICTURES INTERNATIONAL Illumination’s Despicable Me 3 is the number one film worldwide this weekend after grossing $95.6m in 52 territories for an early total of $116.9m. The Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig animation stands at $192.3m worldwide after North America’s $75.4m haul. Despicable Me 3 opened in 46 territories this weekend and is number one in 44 of them. The film also reclaimed the top spot in Australia in its third weekend there. The family film is the biggest animated movie opening weekend of all time in Argentina, Brazil, Estonia, Latvia, Venezuela and the Middle East. Estonia’s opening of $304,000 and Latvia’s opening of $240,000 are the biggest opening weekends ever in those territories. In addition, it is the biggest opening weekend of the Despicable Me franchise, including Minions, in 11 territories, including Brazil, Argentina, and Egypt. Despicable Me 3 opened at number one in the UK on $14.7m for a 56% market share, setting the record as the biggest opening Saturday of all time for an animated film. In Mexico, Despicable Me is number one on $13.5m and a 74% market share. Meanwhile, Brazil debuted on $7.5m and a 63% market share. Russia debuted on $9.2m, Spain has generated $5.5m and 58% market share, while Argentina had a $4.4m debut and 76% market share. The Netherlands produced $3.2m for a first place debut. Despicable Me 3 is performing ahead of all comps at the same point of releae, except Minions which grossed $140m, beating Despicable Me 2, Frozen, Zootopia, Ice Age 4, Finding Dory, Toy Story 3, and The Secret Life of Pets. There are 15 more territories to release over the next two months. This weekend, Despicable Me 3 opens in China, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Trinidad and Iceland. DEADLINE Turning back to DM3, Gru and his long-lost twin brother Dru added 46 markets this frame, scoring No. 1s in 44. The Steve Carell-starrer also has bragging rights to the biggest opening weekend ever for an animated film in such markets as Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela and the Middle East. Illumination likewise had its best start ever in those markets as well as Egypt, Finland, Peru, the UAE and more. Bows for each of the franchise films, which includes the previous DM titles as well as Minions, were bested in Argentina, Brazil, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, the Middle East, Peru, Sweden, the UAE and Venezuela. Estonia and Latvia saw their biggest opening weekends ever for any film with DM3. The lead market to start on the Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin-helmed pic is the UK with $14.7M at No. 1 including a record-setting Saturday that was the biggest opening Saturday of all time for an animated film. At $13.5M in Mexico, DM3 had the second best opening weekend for an animated film ever, behind Minions. Russia ($9.2M), Brazil ($7.5M) and Spain ($5.5M) round out the top new openers. Comps are not apples-to-apples given the staggered rollout pattern, but DM3 is running well ahead of its brethren, all except Minions which, in like-for-like markets and at today’s exchange rates was at $140M at this point in release. DM2 was at $99M. The UK and China have typically led markets for the franchise, although the initial Despicable movie did not release in the latter. This one lands there on July 7 with a fair bit of runway ahead of it as the last Hollywood movie that’s thus far been dated during what is typically a blackout period. DESPICABLE ME 3 Universal Illumination/Universal’s Despicable Me 3snatched the top spot for the weekend with $95.6M from 52 markets. That lifts the offshore cume to $116.9M with numbers rolled in from the earlier soft international launch. Combined with domestic, the global total to date is $192.3M. Significant markets like China, France and Germany are still on deck. DM3 is running well ahead of the previous installments, but 16% lower than Minions at the same point of release in like-for-like markets and at today’s exchange rates. While spinoff Minions is a fair comp, it’s not apples-to-apples given the storyline focus for the DMs is on Steve Carell’s Gru; these films also play older than Minions, an out-and-out phenomenon two years ago whose own sequel is due in 2020. Drilling down into this weekend’s DM3 numbers, it was No. 1 in 44 of 46 new plays. In Australia’s 3rd weekend, it recaptured the top spot from Transformers 5. The launch was the biggest animated movie opening weekend of all time in Argentina, Brazil, Estonia, Latvia, Venezuela and the Middle East. In addition, Estonia’s opening of $304k and Latvia’s opening of $240k are the biggest opening weekends for all films ever. DM3 also scored the biggest opening weekend for Illumination in Argentina, Brazil, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, the Middle East, Peru, the UAE and Venezuela. Of the franchise films, including Minionsm this one was tops in Argentina, Brazil, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, th Middle East, Peru, Sweden, the UAE and Venezuela. In the UK, $14.7M was worth 56% market share — the Saturday was the biggest opening Saturday ever for an animated film. Also No. 1 in Mexico with 74% market share, the weekend estimate is $13.5M for the 2nd biggest opening weekend for an animated film, behind Minions. Brazil bowed at No. 1 with $7.5M and 63% market share. Russia opened No. 1 with $9.2M and 68% market share. Spain started strong at No. 1 with $5.5M and 58% market share — the 2nd best Illumination launch ever. At $4.4M, DM3 in Argentina is the market’s 3rd biggest opening of all films, behind only Fast & Furious 7 and 8. The UK and China have typically led markets for the franchise, although the initial DM movie did not release in the latter. This one lands there on July 7 with a fair bit of runway ahead of it as the last Hollywood movie that’s thus far been dated during what is typically a blackout period.

  7. Thanks! When does the summer school vacation officially start and end in China? Just for my info.
  8. Any predictions for DM3? It's a tricky one everytime because animated films aren't predictable in China. Thoughts?
  9. DHD DESPICABLE ME 3 Universal Pictures Illumination and Universal’s third Despicable pic is playing in six markets including Australia ahead of the rest of the world to tie in with school holidays. The international weekend estimate is $7.2M for a total of $18.9M so far. These are very early days with 64 markets still to open, notably China on July 7. India was a No. 2 start behind Salman Khan’s Tubelight with $1.7M for the biggest Illumination opening ever there. In week 2, Australia is holding at No. 2 for an 11-day total of $7.8M. The film is keeping pace with Despicable Me 2 and Minions. Other releases so far include Malaysia ($2M), Philippines ($3.1M), Singapore ($2.7M) and Thailand ($1.6M). Next weekend, the film opens in 44 territories along with the U.S. and Canada.
  10. SCREEN Illumination’s Despicable Me 3 has kicked off in six territories ahead of the rest of the world - Australia, India, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. The animation grossed $7.2m for a running total of $18.9m. There are still 64 markets left to open. The family film debuted in India on $1.7m including previews, the biggest opening ever for Illumination in India. Australia held at number two in week two on $2.7m for an 11-day total of $7.8m and is keeping pace with Despicable Me 2 and Minions. The film is holding at number two behind Transformers in Malaysia on $2m to date, $3.1m in the Philippines, $2.7m in Singapore, and $1.6m in Thailand. The Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig animation debuts in 44 territories along with North America this week.
  11. In the Chinese forum, they say the release date is a bit better because it's in the summer vacation (DM2 was released in Jan '14 and Minions in August '15).
  12. DESPICABLE ME 3 Universal Pictures From Illumination and Universal, this threequel hopped on the holidays in five markets giving Gru and his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru a start of $10M at 686 dates. Helmed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin, this is actually the 4th film in the franchise if we include spin-off Minions. The previous three films have a collective global gross of $2.67B, with each one topping the former’s international performance. Some of the launches this weekend came in below the more recent iterations, although it’s early days with a lot of runway ahead. The UK and China have typically led markets (although the first movie never opened in the Middle Kingdom). They both open later in the run. This session in Australia, DM3 was No. 1 with $4.4M at 284 dates. The opening is 17% bigger than DM2 on the same date four years ago and 2% below Minions two years ago. Malaysia opened No. 1 with $1.1M at 134 dates. That’s Illumination’s third-biggest opening behind Minions and DM2. The Philippines debuted No. 1 with $2M at 175 dates for the 4th biggest animated opening of all time behind Minions, DM2 and Finding Dory. In Singapore, the film is No. 1 with $1.5M at 30 dates for the top animation start of the year and the second best for Illumination aside from Minions. Thailand was further No. 1 with $963k at 65 dates; 3rd-biggest animated opening of all time behind Minions and Finding Nemo. The releases continue next weekend with India opening on June 23. The main launch weekend is June 30, when DM3 opens in 46 territories along with North America. China bows July 7.
  13. DHD Illumination/Universal’s Despicable Me 3 took advantage of local holidays to debut early in five markets, making $10M at 686 dates. Notably in Australia, it bowed No. 1, at 17% bigger than Despicable Me 2 and 2% under Minions.
  14. From what I know, 4.4m USD = 5.7m AUS dollars. Minions opened in Australia with 5.8m AUS dollars (without previews) then made 115.5m OW in US. DM3 didn't have previews, so their OWs are very close. However, DM3 ODx weekend multi in AUS seems to be better than Minions and DM2 OD:weekend ratio in Australia. DM3 ODx weekend multi seems to be around: 11 wheras DM2's multi was around 10.
