‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Tops Foreign Box Office

Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” topped the foreign box office, earning a respectable $65 million this weekend from nearly 80 foreign territories.

However, the fantasy adventure is still staring at a write-down after bombing domestically, where it earned a meagre $28.1 million in its opening weekend. By the time it ends its run, the follow-up to 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland” will have a hard time even earning half of its predecessor’s $1 billion global haul.

Alice Through the Looking Glass” did particularly well in China, where it generated an estimated $27.1 million. Other territories where it performed well include Mexico with $5 million, Russia with $4.6 million and Brazil with $4.1 million.

In its second weekend of international release, Fox’s “X-Men: Apocalypse” added $55 million to its haul. The superhero sequel has earned $250.8 million globally. The film has debuted in most major foreign territories, but China (June 3) and Japan (Aug. 11) are still on deck.

Universal and Legendary’s “Warcraft” got a jump on its domestic release, opening to $31.6 million from 20 foreign territories for a fourth place finish. It debuted in first place in Russia with $10 million and topped charts in Germany and France, earning $5.9 million and $4.5 million, respectively. The $160 million video game adaptation needs to do well overseas. It is facing fierce headwinds in North America, where it is tracking to open June 10 to a disappointing $25 million.

Another video game adaptation, Sony’s “The Angry Birds Movie,” nabbed third place with $31.8 million, bringing its worldwide gross to $223.5 million. “Captain America: Civil War” rounded out the top five with $12.5 million. The comic-book adventure is the highest-grossing 2016 release, having earned $1.1 billion worldwide.
