Deadline:

"In a solid counterprogramming effort, Fox comedy Spy has uncovered a warm welcome in Asia Pacific. With $9.1Mfrom 1,669 screens in its 2nd frame in 10 markets, it now has a cume of $27.8M. The Paul Feig-helmed pic that stars Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham and Jude Law had strong holds across the region with Korea notably down just 18% to $3.9M for an $11.4M cume to date. In Australia, the drop was 33% for a $5.7M cume and in Hong Kong, the pic is No. 1 with $2M. The U.S. releases next weekend along with 52 more international markets."

Deadline: Fox’s counterprogrammer Spy began a soft rollout internationally three frames ago and now has an offshore cume of $56.5M. It notably added more than 50 markets this session to take $25.6M from a total of 54 runs. Playing on 8,180 screens, the film is showing strong starts in several markets. In the UK, the Melissa McCarthy-starrer that features turns by Brits Jason Statham, Jude Law and Miranda Hart, bested the debut of The Heat by 50%, scoring $4.1M from 787 screens. It fell just 7% below McCarthy’s other previous collaboration with Feig, Bridesmaids. Elsewhere, buzz — and a lack of similar fare in the marketplace — helped build expectations and led to No. 1 bows in 21 offshore markets.

Both Feig and McCarthy had their biggest openings ever in more than 10 markets including Russia ($3.2M from 1,616); Mexico ($1.6M from 944); Brazil ($994K from 305); Thailand ($725K from 270); and Holland ($451K from 97). In Russia, the comedy had a bigger opening weekend than the lifetimes of The Heat and The Hangover, and doubled the lifetime of Bridesmaids.

Previously bowed in Korea, Spy continued to perform despite the MERS scare happening locally. It added $2.1M from 470 for a cume to date of $14.53M

Spy is now a lock for $100M+ OS. The question is can it get domestically? It's doable for sure.
