Since bowing in Korea and Mexico in late March, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has continued to draw strong numbers overseas. As of Sunday, it had an international cume of $197.4M, and a North American haul of $93M. Paramount and Regency Enterprises today say the biblical epic rose to $207M internationally, and $93.8M domestic through Monday, pushing its worldwide cume to $300.8M. Noah was No. 9 at the North American box office this weekend with $5M at 2,537 theaters. It was No. 5 on the international chart after adding $21.6M from 6,092 runs in 56 markets. The film faced its share of controversy prior to opening, and was even banned in most of the Arab world. Nevertheless, it has hit several milestones in the course of its voyage. Domestically, its opening weekend cume of $44M was the biggest ever U.S. debut for star Russell Crowe. Overseas, the film’s releases in Russia and Brazil became the biggest ever for a non-sequel, and were the 4th biggest openings of all time, with $17.2M and $9.8M, respectively. The Russia bow was also Paramount’s best ever in the territory. To date, the movie has earned $32.8M in the fast-burn market. In Brazil, where Noah is at No. 2, it’s the highest grossing Paramount Pictures International release of all time with $23.4M so far. In other major markets, Noah has cumed $15.5M in Mexico, $14.3M in Korea; $13.1M in the UK; and $10.7M in Australia. And, it’s been the No. 1 film in Poland for four weeks straight.
