Heading into the launch session, the industry was seeing a $115M-$125M overseas start for the Angelina Jolie sequel. The result is above the original’s 2014 opening of $109M in like-for-like markets and at today’s rates — just a roughly 7% bump...

 

As we noted in our global preview, the first Maleficent finaled at $517M abroad, although translated to today that would be about $380M given currency swings in the intervening period. (That movie also had benefited from counter programming agains the soccer World Cup.)

I watched it on Friday and thought it was just fine. But apparently it's getting very good word of mouth in Brazil because everyone seems to love it.

Will be interesting what it's going to do in the next few weeks.

seems to have good reception in india too. critics and audience. but started small and has just 1 week before a biggi takes way all screens so will do maximum $1.5-2m.

Only markets left are Lithuania and  Ethiopia. So 350m OS is the target? May be 400m if its legs out in some markets but I dont see how this can be ahead. unless they are talking in local numbers and not $ value. But the article seem to mention the XR.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil booted Joker off the throne last weekend when it launched on $154.1m worldwide and $118.1m internationally. The fantasy sequel starring Angelina Jolie and Michelle Pfeiffer has climbed to $157.5m and could cross $200m by the end of its second session.

It's at $228M OS and $293M WW. So maybe $500M? Not bad.

That is a terrific hold. Should hit 400m OS as the WOM is good. Definitely over 500m WW. I am thinking 525m finish at this point.

Already a good number, even before going up with actuals. With soft competition in the coming weeks I agree 400 OS is a realistic target, which is more than Mal 1 did at today's rates iirc.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil delivered another strong session to add $82.8m worldwide for $293.5m, earning $64.3m from 56 international markets to reach a $228.1m running total. The fantasy adventure sequel dropped 43% overall internationally, and has already passed the lifetime total of the 2014 original in China, where $8.8m means it has reached $42m, Russia on $21.2m, India, Argentina, Indonesia on $8.1m, and Thailand on $6m.

Mexico has produced $15.1m, Brazil $10.1m, France $9.9m, the UK $9.7m, Italy $9.1m, South Korea $8.3m, Japan $7.1m, Spain $6.3m, and Philippines and Germany $6.2m apiece. By region, Europe has generated $90m, Asia Pacific $98m, and Latin America $40m.

The USD was very weak until the latter half of 2014 (when it started strengthening) due to a variety of factors, including extremely low interest rates and money printing by the Fed. Since then the Fed hasn't been as aggressive about keeping a lid on the currency (others increased their easing measures as well though).

This will end up being a respectable performance, all things considered.

Seems like 390-400 can be done with Holiday season beginning worldwide giving some legs in November and December. Nice.
