Deadline.com: ‘Alien: Covenant’ Chomps $42M Bow - International Box Office2,272 Views1 RepliesAdd A Reply
With offshore rollout just beginning on Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, $42M worth of moviegoers ran to see the Xenomorphs in action in 34 markets this frame. Fox unleashed the Prometheus sequel to No. 1s in 19, ahead of the May 19 domestic bow, and came up with the No. 2 studio movie at the international box office.
Korea leads offshore play at $7.2M, followed by the UK ($6.4M), France ($4.5M), Australia ($3.1M) and Mexico ($2.5M). Alien: Covenant‘s opening weekend is 4% bigger than Mad Max: Fury Road for the same bucket of markets and at current exchange rates.
That's a success by any measure, I'd say. It takes $$$ to keep the good stuff coming.,,and I believe a masterpiece is truly to come.
