Box Office: ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Nabs $20 Mil Internationally

Edge of Tomorrow

Edge of Tomorrow” scored $20 million in 28 international markets, with the Tom Cruise science-fiction adventure opening overseas a week before it debuts stateside.

Though Cruise remains a major international star, the picture faced tough competition from Angelina Jolie and “Maleficent.” That fantasy adventure opened to a stunning $100 million abroad from 47 foreign markets.

Warner Bros. is unveiling “Edge of Tomorrow” early overseas because it wants to get out in front of the World Cup, which kicks off on June 12.

Among the territories that got an early look at the twisty adventure were Indonesia, with a $2 million haul, the United Kingdom, with a $3.1 million take, and Italy and Spain, both contributing $1.5 million. It was shown on 4,940 screens.

“Edge of Tomorrow” centers on a cowardly public relations specialist thrust on the frontlines of a global war against an alien species. The trippy concept finds him forced to die repeatedly and to relive a savage battle. Filmed for $178 million, the expensive picture needs to perform well internationally as domestic tracking has put it on pace for a debut in the $30 million range, a lackluster figure given the budget.

Next week, Warner Bros. will roll out the film in 36 markets, including such major markets as China, Russia and Mexico.

    This movie was a lot of fun and exactly what it was designed to be. These continual, vituperative attacks on Cruise surpass anything I have ever seen, and that includes reports of actors who have been arrested, indicted and imprisoned for crimes ranging from drunk driving to assault and rape. This man has performed solidly – sometimes brilliantly – for 30 years; has anyone ever done it better? ENOUGH!

  2. FilmLover says:

    Rotten tomatoes award for worse film of the year. Cruise had his run this officially ends it.

  3. Brody says:

    Go see Malificent, wasted my money on this junk.

  4. David says:

    Sorry to say Tom is not what he use to be. Hated this movie and witnessed 4 people walk out half way through. Major FAIL!

  5. Marc says:

    Awful film with very bad plot, the editor attempted to save this movie but failed. The acting is stiff and it failed at the box office in the US and internationally.

  6. Ted says:

    The above mentioned countries are solid market for hollywood movies…..Still edge of tomorrow made 20million dollars from 28 markets…most of them are very small markets…and for the UK openings it opens 2 days after Malificent…Thats the fact……

    it good opening because it is yet to open in big hollywood centres like china, australia, russia,usa,india,japan aand many more

  9. therealeverton says:

    This is a very good film and well worth a look. However I said last week that between X-Men, Maleficent AND The World Cup it has a very tough journey ahead.

    Always a very bad idea opening 1 week after X-Men X-Men took $95m and Maleficent $100m+ so where was Edge supposed to fit in.
