Internationally, “Gravity” has earned approximately $75 million from 38 markets, including Russia, Germany, Australia, Spain and Italy. The film’s release in China was inevitable seemingly given its stellar performance in 3D and Imax, which has a large footprint on the mainland.

That said, there were doubts of the pic’s release in China (set by China Film) as the country’s quota of 34 imported films a year is nearly full. However, the restriction has been known to be a tad flexible, regulated solely by the Film Bureau and local importer-distributor China Film.

Other than China, “Gravity” has yet to bow in South Korea and Mexico, both of which are slated for this weekend, followed by France (Oct. 23), the U.K. (Nov. 8) and Japan (Dec. 13).
