In 49 territories which rep about 88% of the overseas marketplace, Disney’s The Jungle Book continued to go Kaa-ching on Monday, crossing $200M at the international box office. After adding $14M, the total offshore cume on the Jon Favreau-helmed live-action/CGI swinger is $203.9M. Domestically, it added $7M yesterday to bring the cume to $110.3M in North America and pack a global tally of $314.2M.
Overseas, TJB is still tops in China with a $54.1M total through Monday, followed by India with $22.3M and the UK at $15.4M. The offshore tally on Monday equates to about 10% of the this past weekend which suggests that it’s continuing to play to adults and families. It’s well outperforming comps including Maleficent, Cinderella and Oz: The Great And Powerful. Cindy and Maleficent, which each had more holiday in their runs, wound up with $342M and $517M overseas, respectively. Oz topped out at $258M. Offshore rollout on the update of Disney’s own 1967 animated classic (based on works of Rudyard Kipling) began April 7 in Russia, India and 13 smaller markets before expanding last week.
Other key market cumes on TJB after Monday are Russia with $14.9M, France at $8.9M, Australia at $8.8M, Mexico with $8.4M, Germany‘s $5.4M, Argentina‘s $5M and Spain‘s $4.6M.
The cominig frame has no new major studio releases offshore, although The Huntsman: Winter’s War is expanding into such plays as China, France and Brazil. There are also a handful of Jungle markets opening next weekend and the movie should boast sturdy four-quadrant legs in key markets before Disney’s own Captain America: Civil War recruits the boys beginning April 27. Korea and Japan join the Jungle pack on June 2 and August 11, respectively.
