B.O. goes for ‘Retribution’

'Resident Evil' installment hits $100 mil internationally

In less than two weeks, Sony-Screen Gems’ “Resident Evil: Retribution” has passed the $100 million mark internationally. The pic grossed an additional $26.4 million in its second frame (Sept. 21-23), with a reasonable 47% weekend-to-weekend drop.

“Retribution” and 2010’s “Afterlife” are the only “Evil” installments to hit the $100 million mark overseas. Both pics reached that milestone at the same time in their runs — “Afterlife,” which cumed north of $236 million internationally, had amassed $103.2 million after its second weekend, while “Retribution” chocked up $103.8 million in week two.

The fifth “Evil” installment expanded most recently to Germany via local distrib Constantin, earning $3.3 million; the film debuted in Mexico to slightly more than $3.5 million.

The pic was able to hold up better than expected internationally thanks in large part to solid holdover runs in such territories as Japan ($6.3 million in its second frame, off just 27% for a cume of $28.1 million) and Brazil ($2 million in its second, down 38% for a cume of $6.4 million).

The film fell 62% in Russia and 66% in Hong Kong, comparable to its Stateside drop. And despite the sizeable dip, Hong Kong contributed the highest per-screen average for “Retribution” for the second straight frame, at $8,933; pic’s cumed there $2.5 million. In Russia, the film so far has cumed $13.4 million.

The international B.O. was light on new releases: Stateside newcomer “Dredd 3D,” which struggled to just $6.3 million domestically, grossed $9.4 million from a handful of day-and-date overseas territories, including Brazil and Russia.
