‘Django’s’ good week to die hard

Pic's stellar int'l cume at $187.7 mil

“Django Unchained” likely spent its final consecutive week atop the overseas box office, grossing $19.5 million in its fourth frame (Feb. 8-10) for a stellar international cume of $187.7 million.

“Django” all but certainly will fall in its fifth frame to Fox’s “A Good Day to Die Hard” — this year’s first major worldwide release, bowing day-and-date in 57 territories, including Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Spain and the U.K. Last weekend, Fox released the film in a handful of Asian territories, where it tallied an impressive $10.4 million.

Distributed internationally by Sony, “Django” already is playing in 65 markets on approximately 5,280 screens. Even without expanding to any major markets, the pic is holding well weekend to weekend, falling less than 40% over the most recent sesh.

Globally, “Django” has amassed close to $345 million, including an impressive $155 million Stateside via the Weinstein Co.

The four-frame winning streak is an impressive feat for “Django,” especially given last year’s extremely crowded holiday frame, with big pics such as “The Hobbit,” “Les Miserables,” and “Jack Reacher” vying for audience attention.

Warner Bros.’ “The Hobbit,” for instance, is near the $1 billion global mark as it readies to launch in China on Feb. 22. Universal’s “Les Miserables” has cumed a sound $215 million internationally, while Paramount’s “Jack Reacher,” which launches in China this weekend, has surpassed $116 million overseas.
