Refresh for latest…: After opening early in 37 international box office markets last weekend, Warner Bros/Village Roadshow/Heyday Films’ Wonka expanded its release this session to the rest of the world (save Korea which goes in late January). The results are sweet.

In a total 77 overseas markets, the Paul King-directed, Timothée Chalamet-starrer added another $53.6M during the sophomore session. That takes the offshore cume to $112.4M, and, with domestic, lifts global to $151.4M.

Among new openers, France led play with $5.1M at a clear No. 1 and beating all comps. In Australia, $4M was the 2nd biggest WB opening weekend of 2023 as well as the 2nd biggest family opening weekend of the year. Italy’s $3.4M start was also a clear No. 1 and tracking above comps.

In IMAX, Wonka’s global cume is $8.7M.

Elsewhere, Disney’s Wish is gaining some traction with a solid -38% hold and including a No. 1 opening in Japan this weekend of $4.4M to make it the second-biggest non-local animated start of the year. The full frame was worth $12.2M in 39 offshore markets, lifting the international total to $72M and global to $126.2M. Markets still to come include Italy, Australia, Korea and Brazil.

The Top 5 markets to date are as follows: France ($9.2M), UK ($8.4M), Germany ($7.7M), China ($5.9M) and Spain ($4.8M).

Ridley Scott’s Apple Original Films produced/Sony Pictures distributed Napoleon lifted its global take to $188.4M this session. The international weekend of $8M in 65 markets pushed the overseas cume to $131.4M

Holdover markets continue to play well and were down 51% as a group. 

The Top 5 are the UK ($15.7M), France ($13.5M), Germany ($9.6M), Spain ($9.4M) and Italy ($8.3M).

Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is set to cross $300M global through Sunday. The overseas weekend was $6.5M in 84 markets, lifting the offshore cume to $155.3M and global to $300.5M.

Universal/Illumination’s Migration, which is on a staggered release, added $5.2M for the second frame overseas. It’s now playing in a total 26 offshore markets and has a cume of $12.3M. This session added eights markets to perform just off WishEncanto and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish excluding previews.

Mexico opened with $2M, including $200K from previews, at No.2 in the market behind Wonka. This is in line with Encanto and just off WishSing and Puss in Boots: The Last Wish excluding previews. Migration received positive reviews from the Mexican press, and strong midweek performance is expected.
