BOX OFFICE: WORLD WAR Z Overtakes MAN OF STEEL To Become The #1 Movie Worldwide
Despite a troubled production and the resulting negative buzz, Marc Forster's World War Z has overtaken Man of Steel and Monsters University at the worldwide box office to become the #1 movie on the planet. Hit the jump for further details!
It's fair to say that no one saw this coming. Initially predicted by many to be the biggest flop of 2013, World War Z has now become the #1 movie in the world. Deadline reports that after just 10 days of release, the Marc Forster helmed PG-13 zombie actioner has earned a total of $263 million worldwide. After earning $70.1 million overseas this weekend, World War Z brought its international cume to an impressive $135.3 million. Domestically, the film earned $29.8M in its second weekend, with a cume to date of $123.7 million. With more territories yet to open, it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise that Paramount are moving ahead with a sequel. However, with a projected budget of over $220 million, the studio will have to cut costs on the follow-up in order to make it a worthwhile project. For now, this instalment looks set to be a decent hit for them. Have you seen World War Z yet? Sound off with your thoughts below!
