‘Impact’ rises to $200 mil

China's $5.1 mil pushes o'seas B.O. for D'Works/Par pic

A meteoric run in China, its last significant market, has propelled “Deep Impact” over the $200 million mark overseas.

Released in China Aug. 21, the DreamWorks/Paramount co-production has grossed $5.1 million and is still playing on more than 1,000 screens.

CJ Entertainment, a division of South Korea’s Cheil Jedang Group, a founding shareholder in DreamWorks, distributed Mimi Leder’s film in China, South Korea and Hong Kong.

The meteor saga toplining Morgan Freeman, Tea Leoni and Robert Duvall minted a combined $8 million in Korea and Hong Kong. Handled in all other offshore territories by United Intl. Pictures, the pic has brought in $188.4 million.

That brings total international receipts to $201.5 million, dwarfing the domestic cume of $140 million.

The top-grossing foreign market is Japan, which delivered $44.6 million, followed by Germany’s $19.6 million, the U.K.’s $17 million, Mexico’s $10.6 million, Australia’s $10.5 million, Spain’s $7.8 million and Italy’s $7.5 million.

If there was one relatively soft spot, it was France, where notoriously unpredictable auds did not respond with much enthusiasm, resulting in a gross of $6.9 million.
