‘Ip Man 3’ Does Big Box Office, ‘Zootopia’ Passes $200 Million Globally

Zootopia,” an animated comedy about a rabbit that wants to be a cop, is shaping up to be a monster global hit.

Not content with dominating the domestic marketplace, the Disney Animation release racked up $63.4 million internationally. That included a $24 million debut in China and a $7.9 million launch in Russia, the biggest Disney Animation or Pixar openings in both countries.

Zootopia” has been screening in certain foreign territories for four weekends. Its worldwide haul stands at $232.5 million, and there are only a few markets left to open. “Zootopia” bows in Australia, Brazil and the United Kingdom later this month, and in Japan on April 23.

But big as it was, “Zootopia” didn’t top the foreign box office. That honor went to Hong Kong martial arts sequel “Ip Man 3,” which racked up $75 million from three territories, with the bulk of its gross coming from China.

“Deadpool” captured third place with $21.2 million. The comic-book movie is within striking distance of “The Matrix Reloaded’s” $742.1 million global haul and should surpass it as the highest-grossing R-rated movie on a worldwide basis. So far, “Deadpool’s” total stands at $673.2 million after four weeks of release.

Action flop “Gods of Egypt” took fourth place with $15.7 million, bringing its worldwide total to $72.4 million. It cost $140 million to produce and tens of millions more to market, making profitability a long shot.

Survival epic “The Revenant” rounded out the top five, earning $12.5 million. The story of a guide (Leonardo DiCaprio in an Oscar-winning role) left for dead in the wilderness has earned $429 million since opening at the end of 2015.
