Box Office: ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Nabs $20 Mil Internationally

Edge of Tomorrow” scored $20 million in 28 international markets, with the Tom Cruise science-fiction adventure opening overseas a week before it debuts stateside.

Though Cruise remains a major international star, the picture faced tough competition from Angelina Jolie and “Maleficent.” That fantasy adventure opened to a stunning $100 million abroad from 47 foreign markets.

Warner Bros. is unveiling “Edge of Tomorrow” early overseas because it wants to get out in front of the World Cup, which kicks off on June 12.

Among the territories that got an early look at the twisty adventure were Indonesia, with a $2 million haul, the United Kingdom, with a $3.1 million take, and Italy and Spain, both contributing $1.5 million. It was shown on 4,940 screens.

“Edge of Tomorrow” centers on a cowardly public relations specialist thrust on the frontlines of a global war against an alien species. The trippy concept finds him forced to die repeatedly and to relive a savage battle. Filmed for $178 million, the expensive picture needs to perform well internationally as domestic tracking has put it on pace for a debut in the $30 million range, a lackluster figure given the budget.

Next week, Warner Bros. will roll out the film in 36 markets, including such major markets as China, Russia and Mexico.
