‘X2’ shoots o’seas as ‘Reloaded’ aims

Two weekend cume totals $122 mil for mutants

A week after its record-setting day-and-date debut, “X2: X-Men United,” Fox’s sequel to its “X-Men” Marvel comic spinoff, took advantage of the lull before this week’s juggernaut for “The Matrix Reloaded.”

The Bryan Singer-helmed mutant creature feature dropped between 40% and 50% in most territories to register an estimated $32.1 million for the frame, bringing the cume to $122 million after two weekends.

Pic’s Russian preem, a week after the rest of the world, took about $2 million, according to early estimates. In Spain, “X2” dropped just 27%, taking about $2 million from 380 screens for a cume of about $7.5 million.

Across the border in France, the weekend tally was about $4.6 million from 701, a 38% drop for cume of $13 million. In Blighty, “X2” dropped 44%, earning about $5.3 million from 449 screens for cume of $21.8 million.

In Japan it snatched $1.6 million from 433 screens, a 47% drop, for cume of about $7.4 million. Down Under, the weekend tally was about $1.8 million from 358 for cume of $7.3 million — a 50% drop. And in Mexico, the estimate of $1.45 million from 750 is down 54%. Cume south of the border is about $8.6 million.

In Germany, where “Anger Management” opened No. 1 through Saturday, takings for “X2” were down 54% to approximately $2.7 million from 905 screens. Cume there is now $10.5 million. “Anger Management,” the Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson two-hander, took about $2.3 million from 870 in four days.

In Austria the laffer amassed about $225,000 from 75 in three days, in Switzerland $300,000 from 37 screens in four days.

Sony also preemed “Darkness Falls” in Blighty, where it took about $760,000 on 294 and in Spain, where it took about $845,000 from 224 to land in the second spot.

“Maid in Manhattan” preemed in Japan over the weekend and grossed and estimated $218,000 from 170, setting it up for a comfortable season there.
