BOX OFFICE: RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION Dominates Overseas; TDKR Hits $1.066B Worldwide
Despite a 27% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, the latest instalment in the Resident Evil franchise looks set to be another hit for the studio, guaranteeing a sixth movie. Meanwhile, The Dark Knight Rises is now #7 on the list of all-time highest grossing movies.
Resident Evil: Retribution has dominated the overseas box office this past weekend, earning $37.2 million from 74 territories during its second week of release. Despite being panned by critics, the fifth instalment in the franchise (as with the other films) has performed much better outside of North America - although it did take the #1 spot in the US last week - and out of its current total of $136.8 million, $103 million of that is from overseas. The franchise currently has a worldwide cume of over $800 million (70% of which comes from outside the US) and it's thought that this one will take that to more than $1 billion. Meanwhile, The Dark Knight Rises has now moved into the #7 spot on the list of all-time highest grossing movies after taking its worldwide total to $1.066 billion thanks to an additional $3.8 million from 63 markets.
