With $664.1M in international box office after Wednesday’s grosses were added in, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has overtaken Spectre to become 2015’s 5th biggest film overseas. The Disney sequel blasted up another $36.7M on Wednesday, a 2.6% drop from Tuesday’s haul. Including the domestic day’s number ($28.1M), the global cume is now $1,293.1M. This hyper-drives it past Disney’s own Frozen to become the No. 8 movie of all time at the worldwide box office.
Earlier today, Disney UK reported that the film had set a new UK benchmark, passing Titanic to become the 4th biggest film ever in the market. It also set a light-speed record to the £80M mark in 13 days — versus Skyfall‘s 23.
The home office is now reporting the UK to-date take at $124.6M. This is the biggest offshore market thus far and will cross Spectre‘s local total ($138.3M) this weekend.
Across the rest of the Top 5 markets, daily jumps are: Germany with +7.1% to $70.6M; France’s +5.6% to $59.2M; Oz with +5% to $44.1M; and Japan at $40.6M for 9.1%.
