BOX OFFICE: Tim Burton's DARK SHADOWS Makes $36.7 Million Overseas
Despite a slow opening in North America (no doubt due partly to the record breaking second week of The Avengers) Dark Shadows has fared a little better overseas. However, it's the Joss Whedon directed superhero ensemble which has stolen the show yet again.
After a disappointing domestic take of $28.8 million, Dark Shadows has opened to a slightly more impressive $36.7 million overseas from 43 territories reveals The Hollywood Reporter. This isn't too bad, but far from what Warner Bros. were hoping for (especially with a rumoured budget of $150 million). However, it still opened at #1 in many countries and still finished at #2 at the worldwide box office. Marvel's The Avengers made a whopping $95.4 million from 54 territories, totally eclipsing the latest Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration as it sped to a record breaking $1 billion in just 19 days.
