‘Noah’ Raises Tide to $300 Million at Global Box Office


Biblical epic approaches nine figures Stateside

The high tide for Paramount-Regency Entertainment’s biblical epic “Noah” keeps rising, as the Darren Aronofsky-helmed film crossed the $300 million worldwide mark on Tuesday, with more than $200 million internationally and nearly nine figures in the States.

The global success for the film began overseas, where it bowed ahead of effects-driven tentpoles like “Gravity” and “Inception.” In some of the late-entry markets, however, the speed for “Noah” has slowed somewhat.

That said, the are several major markets yet to come for the $125 million-budgeted pic; and considering the controversy surrounding the pic and doubt about its box office success from the beginning, its tally so far means a considerable sigh of relief for Par and Regency.

To date, “Noah,” which stars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly, has done best overseas in Russia and Brazil, where it’s grossed $32.8 million and $23.4 million, respectively. The film should cross the $100 million mark domestically through this weekend.
