‘Robin’ hits target with $6 mil overseas

Cannes opener debuts early in Euro markets

As the international scene was toasting “Robin Hood” Wednesday during its opening night gala at Cannes, overseas auds also turned out for the early bow of Universal-Imagine Entertainment’s epic pic, which grossed an estimated $6 million in several European markets.

French-speaking markets led the barrage, with previews in other key territories like the U.K., Germany and Italy.

Gaul took in an estimated $1.1 million, while in Blighty, the Russell Crowe-Cate Blanchett starrer estimated $1.2 million, more than double the opening day gross for U’s 2007 “The Bourne Ultimatum.” German auds shelled out some $550,000 in preview screenings.

Par launched “Iron Man 2” internationally April 28 — a week before its domestic bow — to lengthen playability before “Robin Hood” entered the overseas market. The decision could prove beneficial for Par as “Robin Hood” overpowered opening day grosses for the comic book sequel in several territories, including Germany, Belgium and Sweden.

Belgium and French-speaking Switzerland rounded out the early debuts; “Robin Hood” will launch day-and-date this weekend in more than 10,000 engagements worldwide.
