‘Seventh Son’ Earns $18.4 Million at Foreign Box Office

Seventh Son” doesn’t hit U.S. theaters until February, but the fantasy adventure is getting a head start overseas, where it grossed $18.4 million last weekend.

Screening in 24 territories last weekend, the film was No. 1 in several, including Russia, Romania, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. So far, the movie has brought in $21.7 million.

The adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s “The Wardstone Chronicles” series centers on a sorcerer (Jeff Bridges), his young apprentice (Ben Barnes) and an evil witch (Julianne Moore). Produced by Legendary Pictures, “Seventh Son” was originally set up at Warner Bros. and slated for release in 2013.

After Legendary parted ways with the studio that same year and set up shop at Universal Pictures, it was allowed to take the project with it to its new home. As part of its exit, Legendary kept a stake in Warner Bros.’ “Interstellar” in exchange for giving up claims to future “Man of Steel” sequels.

“Seventh Son” will continue its international rollout in the coming months, and it will open this week in Bulgaria, Chile, Czech Republic, Egypt, the Philippines, Serbia, South Africa and United Arab Emirates, among other territories. It debuts Stateside on Feb. 6, when it will face off against the sci-fi fantasy “Jupiter Ascending” and the family film “Spongebob: Sponge Out of Water.”
