Pirates! Band of Misfits Nabs No. 2 Spot on Domestic Box Office
Sony Screen Gems ‘Think Like A Man” is the repeat box office champion domestically this weekend. But the big news came from overseas as The Avengers flexed it muscles opening at number 1 in all 39 foreign markets and already raked in 178 million a week before it is set to be released in the United States.
“Think Like a Man,” the African-American ensemble film based on an advice book by comedian Steve Harvey, took in $18 million from 2.015 locations, lifting its overall gross to $60.8 million, according to Rentrak. The surprise came from the film nabbing the number two spot which was Sony’s animated family film Pirates! Band of Misfits which nabbed $11.5 million from 3.358 locations. The film, from Sony Pictures Animation and Aardman, was made for roughly $50 million, a figure it has surpassed in foreign box office receipts already. Pirates! just beat out last weeks number 2 film The Lucky One The Warner Bros. movie, based on a Nicholas Spark romance novel and starring Zac Efron, took in $11.3 million from 3,175 locations. That brings the overall domestic gross for the film to nearly $40 million.
“The Avengers”, Joss Whedon’s superhero spectacular, earned a whopping $24.7 million in the U.K., Disney’s best three-day weekend ever there. It also took in $19.7 million from Australia, a record $15.9 million from Mexico and another $12.9 million from Korea. What do you think of this weeks number one box office film?
