Col/Tristar trio big abroad

Columbia TriStar Intl.’s current slate of “Groundhog Day,””Hero” and “Nowhere to Run” is poised to collectively surpass the domestic gross collected by the three titles.

The films have amassed roughly $ 95 million abroad, compared to approximately $ 107 million in North America.

“Hero” and “Nowhere to Run” have already bettered domestic performance, while “Groundhog Day’s” current $ 20 million from exploitation in fewer than half of its foreign markets represents close to 30% of revenue in the United States and Canada.

The division’s major coup has been the performance of “Hero.” The Dustin Hoffman-Geena Davis-Andy Garcia starrer was a disappointment in America, where it grossed less than $ 20 million. Internationally, it has earned more than $ 44 million.

The Jean-Claude Van Damme actioner “Nowhere to Run,” opened in 80% of the foreign market, has earned $ 30 million, about $ 8 million more than in North America. Van Damme films have traditionally done significantly better in foreign exploitation.

“Groundhog Day” faces the biggest challenge in besting domestic B.O. Nonetheless, current U.K. and German postings of $ 5.3 million and $ 8.1 million , respectively, are encouraging.
