Box Office: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Crosses $400 Million Overseas

Fifty Shades of Grey” has reached yet another milestone. The film adaptation crossed the $400 million mark at the foreign box office on Friday.

Combined with its North American estimated gross of $165.5 million, “Fifty Shades” will have likely hauled in $566.1 million worldwide by Sunday.

“Fifty Shades,” starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, is now Universal’s eighth highest grossing film of all time worldwide, trailing immediately behind “Mamma Mia!” ($606.1 million).

The film’s other box office records include the title of highest-grossing Valentine’s Day release of all time and Universal’s biggest R-rated movie. Its director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, also made box office history. The pic debuted to $85.2 million at the U.S. box office — the largest opening weekend ever for a female director.

The steamy romance carries a modest $40 million budget.

Unlike the two stars, Taylor-Johnson will not return for the sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker” — based on E.L. James’ erotic trilogy.
