The latest from Fox and Chernin is eyeing $46 million from international markets. It’s opening at four major markets, and 46 total, accounting for about 36% of the film’s eventual footprint. The epic, directed by Matt Reeves and starring Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson, is leading the domestic box office this weekend with $56.5 million.

 

Still, the international winner this weekend is once again “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” The release is scoring $72.3 million abroad from 63 total markets. Its global cume stands at $261.1 million. There are still several major markets for the movie to enter, including Spain, Japan and China.

Disney’s “Cars 3” is racing on in 57% of markets. This weekend it’s on track for additional $20.1 million from 33 territories.

Otherwise, films are picking up a little bit here and there. “The Mummy” should made an extra $2 million abroad. “The Beguiled” is heading for a $1.3 million international weekend. “Wonder Woman’s” global tally should reach $764.9 million after earning an additional $3.3 million abroad. Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is crossing the $750 million mark after picking up $7.5 million from from overseas territories. And Paramount’s “Transformers: The Last Knight” is grossing $6.7 million this weekend in 48 markets, including one new opening. The film’s international cume is now $392.4 million.
