Refresh for latest…: Sony’s Bad Boys: Ride or Die pummeled pre-weekend opening projections, coming in with a $104.6M global bow, including $48.6M from the international box office. While the overseas debut is slightly off 2020’s Bad Boys for Life which did $50.3M in like-for-like offshore markets at today’s exchange rates, that film had strong legs. Either way, Ride or Die‘s start gave some much needed oomph to summer turnstiles. Its launch is 58% bigger than Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

The Will Smith/Martin Lawrence reteam from directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah was driven overseas by Europe with $19.3M across the region. It set new regional records for the Bad Boys franchise in Latin America and the Middle East with $10M and $9.5M, respectively.

Of the 60 markets released this session, the UK leads with $4.9M (+ 31% over Furiosa). Mexico was next with $4.2M, followed by Germany at $3.7M (2.5x Furiosa and 77% over Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes) and Saudi Arabia also at $3.7M (the first ever Hollywood premiere in Riyadh having paid dividends). Rounding out the Top 5, France collared $3.1M (+28% vs. Furiosa). Markets still to release include Italy, Japan and China later this month.

In Imax, Bad Boys delivered $8.2M including $3M from overseas.

Warner Bros’ Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga trucked to another $13.7M in 78 markets, taking the international cume to $85.7M and global to $144.4M

China debuted this weekend to an estimated $3.6M, ranking as the No. 2 U.S. title behind The Garfield Movie on what was a local holiday frame. Opening weekend results in China are 54% ahead of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Imax accounted for a strong 34% of the opening with $1.2M.

The Top 5 to date on Furiosa are Korea ($10.9M), UK ($7M), France ($6.1M), Mexico ($5.7M) and Australia ($5.6M).

Sony/Alcon’s The Garfield Movie keeps purring offshore, down just 44%. The frame added $15.3M from 61 markets. Included in that is China (where Alcon and Stars Collective manage the release) as the feline chased down another $5.2M for a $15M cume after two sessions.

The full overseas cume is now $124.1M for $192.7M global. 

The Top 5 markets to date are Mexico ($20.3M), UK ($9.4M), Germany ($8.1M), Brazil ($6.4M) and Spain ($6M). 

Still to release are France and Japan.

20th Century/Disney’s Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes added $6.9M in 52 markets (-57%), lifting the international cume to $210M and global to $359.8M. The weekend pushed the current Apes franchise across $2B worldwide to $2.043B. In individual markets, it’s the biggest of the franchise in India, Mexico, Poland and Indonesia among others. In Brazil, it’s the top movie of the year. 

The Top 5 KPA markets to date are China ($28.7M), France ($21.5M), Mexico ($19.2M), UK ($18.2M) and Brazil ($10.1M).

Paramount’s IF added another $6.2M from 65 overseas markets to take its running cume to $67.2M. The John Krasinski pic now has a global total of $160.7M. Tops to date is the UK at $13.7M, followed by Mexico ($9.4M), France ($8.5M), Australia ($5.3M) and Germany ($4M).

The film opens next weekend in Japan and China.
