BOX OFFICE: MEN IN BLACK 3 Becomes Highest Grossing Installment In Series
The third installment in the popular Men In Black franchise has now surpassed the first film as the highest grossing title in the series, and is currently close to achieving $600 million worldwide.
Here's a box office update for Sony Pictures' Men In Black 3, which has been playing in theaters since May 25th. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the third flick in the successful film series has now grossed $599.4 million worldwide, which is the highest gross in the Barry Sonnenfeld-directed series. The original Men In Black earned $589.4M worldwide back in 1997, while Men In Black II (2002) grossed a lower $441.8M globally.
Men In Black 3's international gross was $429.8M, compared to $169.6M domestically (ironically, this is the lowest domestic gross of the series). The threequel (which stars Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin) has earned big numbers in Japan, grossing $37.6M so far. The movie has grossed $32.8M in the UK, while receiving $24.2M in Germany.
This should be good news for Sony, as there has been discussions of a possible fourth film in the series. Have you seen Men In Black 3 yet?
