‘The Force Awakens’ Blasts Past $800M Offshore As It Closes In On All-Time Top 10

Star Wars: The Force Awakens saw an overseas bump on Wednesday of $13.1M, topping Tuesday’s $13M take and bringing the offshore cume to $812.2M. As expected, it has now become the No. 11 movie of all time at the international box office. To get there, it zipped past Skyfall, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Iron Man 3. With $9M separating it from Minions, it should enter the all-time offshore Top 10 when today’s grosses are tallied.

After becoming the No. 1 movie ever at the North American box office on Wednesday, its global cume is now $1,576.6M. It remains the No. 4 film of all time at the worldwide box office; Jurassic World is next ahead of it with $1.67B.

In individual markets, TFA has now grossed $150.5M in the UK, its continued strongest offshore play. That puts it within roughly $11M of Skyfall, the market’s biggest ever title. The rest of the Top 10 are Germany ($87M), France ($72M), Japan ($58.7M), Australia ($54.1M), Spain ($29.3M), Italy ($26.3M), Mexico ($25.2M), Russia ($23.9M) and Korea ($23.5M).

China previews start Friday night with the Middle Kingdom release going into hyper-drive on Saturday.
