This number is not great,  but its decently good. Anyway the most important thing is this opening isn't a flop and is big enought that with great legs this could do big numbers. If it only made 15m this weekend even with crazy legs it would not get big. This OW (in only 11 markets) seems to indicated that their will be enough people to spread potential wom.

Well GITS's total gross has already been beaten in Korea, Taiwan, Malyasia, Hong Kong and Indonesia. Looking pretty strong in East Asia.

 

The UK number could have been better.

Looks like it has already surpassed WarCraft's South Korea's total number, and pretty much matched WarCraft's HK's number in just a few days.

Deadline: 

 

Fox took advantage of the Chinese New Year to push Alita into South East Asia. This one doesn’t open in North America until next weekend, and so far reviews on the James Cameron-produced pic are mixed. But the play here is international, particularly Asia given the manga source material. Fox is happy with the results which are from just 11 markets, especially in Korea where the film came in at No. 2 amid strong local competition. Overall, Alita is outpacing Maze Runner (+23%) and Ready Player One (+5%) in like for like markets and at today’s rates.

 

 

Alita will release in China on February 22 as the first big foreign title to arrive post-New Year. Cameron is beloved in the Middle Kingdom and he and Jon Landau are headed there soon to host a big premiere.

 

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL
Based on the Gunnm manga series by Yukito Kishiro, Robert Rodriguez’s Alita is an ambitious and long-in-the-works adaptation. The tech aspects are impressive — European exhibitors got an extended look last June at CineEurope while ComicCon also got an eyeful in July. The motion capture of the titular heroine and next-level 3D plus the source material are particular draws in Asia where this movie bowed over the frame to $32M (also including the UK).

 

There were 11 markets out this weekend, led by Korea at $10.9M (19% bigger than Star Wars: The Last Jedi), followed closely behind by Taiwan at $4.8M for No. 1 Fox’s 4th biggest opening ever. The UK grossed $4.2M with a 42% 3D share. Malaysia’s $2.9M is Fox’s 2nd biggest opening ever.

Alita is an expensive proposition with a reportedly $170M production budget and overseas is expected to be the driver. Landau recently told Reuters that the filmmakers aren’t judging the success in box office terms. “We are our biggest critics. If we’re happy with the movie, we’ve done our job. I think not only are we happy with it, but James Cameron is happy with it and (manga creator) Yukito Kishiro, who could be our biggest critic of all, is thrilled with it.”

Cameron for his part said “It’s in that battle-cruiser class of budgets, there’s no question about it so, yeah, the stakes are high.” But he also promised “at least one more if not two” further installments if “people show up” to this one.

The film moves into the bulk of overseas markets next weekend.

IMAX play was worth $4.7M from 216 screens in 17 markets.

That's a HUGE 3D share in the UK these days.

There's not a single screen in North Yorkshire allowed to screen it in 3D either.

 

My friend rang up the VUE in York to ask why there are no 3D showings and they said the director (lol) disallowed them from showing it (screens weren't bright enough).

 

My point is that Jim's smackdown on crappy projectors has taken affect. Perhaps this contributed to SEA outpacing the UK.

Doubtful man, there were 3D options available (IMAX and 4DX etc), wouldn't be shocked to see that share as around 30%

Well it did open better than Ghost in the Shell in U.K which opened with $2.9M. 

Yup, same kind of launch too. If it follows the same thing in the US, that's around mid 20s.

Clearly this movie's fate is going to rely on China. Hopefully it breaks out enough there.

My last update of Pre-sales in Chile. Soon they will add the showtimes for tomorrow:

 

The chain that is roughly 20% of the market:

 

19 showtimes for OD | 3906 seats available | 225 tickets sold +(91 in the last 2 days)

 

Very very bad. It can fill a medium-sized auditorium. The fact that it lost more than half of its initial showtimes and almost 2/3 of its seats due to shows not selling anything, could negatively affect its screen count for tomorrow.

Weak OD in South America as expected, 3rd in Argentina and Bolivia, 4th in Uruguay and 2nd in Paraguay. Behind HDD2U everywhere and HTTYD (exept for Paraguay)

Yes, but I was just making sure we are aware that it was near enough a level playing field.
