STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS | 1131.6 M overseas | 2068.2 M worldwide

Recommended Posts

Forecast from the US Wednesday (@Deadline), we could expect similar drop OS:

 

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, meanwhile, dropped only about 5% from Tuesday for a Wednesday take of roughly $27.5M to $27.9M which would bring its domestic cume to $628.7M. If, as expected, that total holds it will advance Star Wars Episode V11 to the 4th highest domestic grosser of all time, dislodging Marvel’s The Avengers, which grossed $623.3M back in 2012. With that kind of staying power, it’s likely Disney/Lucasfilm’s The Force Awakens will hit $700M domestic sometime Friday or Saturday.

What happen to all the people who said Star wars is not that big oversea's lol!

 

It's all relative. Relative to its DOM performance, the OS performance as a whole is not particularly noteworthy. The OS share is some of the lowest for recent blockbusters.

That has a lot to do with TFA doing 600M+ compare to recent blockbusters only making 300-400 domestically.

However it's big because jw and fast 7 were boosted by China. 

 

This will make 1 billion overseas without China 

 

Therefore imo it's about as impressive as Dh2 overseas at the least.

Isn't it more impressive than DH2? Yeah, developing markets but it was most succesfull in developed markets (like this is) and the exchange rates were so massive! Germany would have grossed $90mio by now and not $70mio. So, without China SW is more impressive.

Forbes

 

The film is still killing it overseas as well, with a new total of $1.293.1 billion worldwide, between Frozen ($1.276b) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II ($1.341b) to be the 8th biggest movie ever globally (not accounting for inflation and what have you).

So $28.1M US and about $37M OS.

Pretty agree. IMO, SW7 is already a more impressive run than DH2 overseas. In fact, DH2 is not the most impressive Potter run. The two first Potter films were comfortably bigger than DH2 OS. In fact, in the modern era, I do not see any other film bigger than HP1 OS excepting Cameron's monsters. I still think that SW7 is still a step behind HP1. We will see how it finishes to know if both films have a similar size.

The third LOTR film made $90m more than HP1 just 2 years later - could that be considered greater than the rate of expansion/inflation?

 

This year's big overseas films except SW (F7, JW, AoU) all had a massive boost from China (plus inflation in other markets) so that would be an unreasonable comparison to HP1.

The OS/DOM splits are a weird thing to obsess over. The reason the ratio is so even is because TFA is easily going to be the highest grossing film ever DOM. It has a very good chance ending as the 3rd highest grossing film OS ever. That's pretty tucking impressive to me.

No, exchange rates were great during ROTK compared to HP1. HP1 is comfortably ahead in admissions.

I do not even think ROTK was the biggest LOTR film. At most, on par to FOTR. There are some big European countries (main OS market of LOTR as a whole) where FOTR was the most attended film of the trilogy (UK, Germany, Spain). But the exchange rates in 2001 were AWFUL. Worse than now. For that reason ROTK "seems" to be quite higher than both FOTR and TTT, but that is not true. It could be bigger in some countries, but lower in others. The inflation was not so important as the ER factor.

 

Taking into account this, HP1 did nearly $100m more than FOTR at the same time, so I have HP1 over LOTR.


Relative to the 2015 monsters, I have already taken into account that China boost is enormous. If we substract the Chinese figure, we see that SW will be bigger than those 3 films (F7 770, AoU 706, JW 788), since it seems to be headed to 1 billion without China.

 

And if we compare those numbers without China with HP1's 657 million done 14 years ago and without 3D or without the expansion in other key markets we can easily know that HP1 was bigger than all of them. Another thing is to speculate about how much would HP1 had done today in China. We will never know if the upcoming of a new franchise beloved by millions of children around the globe would had had the same effect in China that it had in the rest of the world. It is a question with no answer. At least, a not easy one.

 

Said this, the matter is that we can not exclude a market just because it is very big. We have to do it to compare with past blockbusters, but we can not do it now. If Star Wars is not able to make $400m there as F7 did, then do it better next time with SW8. It is not F7 fault. Hard problem this kind of comparisons...

Current question - can TFA make it to the same OS ballpark as F7 ($1.1bn) without China? Are there any other territories left to open? It seems to be pretty much pacing identically to its NA performance... most of us have it finishing at or just shy of $1bn there, can it do the same or a bit more OS?

 

Also, what is the latest view on China OW and performance? Am I right in thinking that there's not much optimism?

What? It's tracking at $150m OW according to Screendaily's sources.;)

I may have chosen the wrong words. It is undoubtedly impressive. But what it is doing DOM is much more than impressive.

Well it wasn't that big in many places. In Greece the OT was a non-event because Hollywood movies didn't have a significant presence in the market at the time, and the prequels were mid-size hits driven exclusively by kids who discovered the OT through VHS and TV in the late 80s and during the 90s. Most people here over the age of 20 didn't give a shit about Star Wars 15 years ago. Now it has become a generational thing and TFA will probably outgross the prequels combined, not just in inflated dollars but in admissions too. There were a lot of OS markets that Hollywood didn't have a big grasp in the 70s-80s and missed the Star Wars mania altogether.
