Warner Bros.’ “Mad Max: Fury Road” has topped the $300 million mark at the worldwide box office in just over three weeks.
“Fury Road” has launched three decades after Miller’s last Mad Max feature, “Beyond Thunderdome,” bowed in 1985. The latest installment, which is set amid a post-apocalyptic Australian wasteland, was financed by Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow to the tune of $150 million.
The tentpole took in $2.3 million at 2,720 U.S. locations on Friday, its 22nd day in theaters, and should finish its fourth weekend with about $8 million — a 43% decline.
International grosses have been led by South Korea, which reached $23.5 million after three weekends, followed by the U.K. with $21.3 million, France with $14 million, Australia with $12.9 million, Russia with $12.1 million and Brazil with $9 million.
“Fury Road” opens in Japan on June 20. It has not yet set a Chinese release.
