UPDATE: Int’l Box Office: ‘Edge Of Tomorrow’ Cruises To $60.3M Through Friday; Saturday Lifts China Haul To $16.5M

By Nancy Tartaglione, Anita Busch

UPDATE, SATURDAY 12:31 PM PT: After opening at No. 1 in China on Friday, Tom Cruise/Emily Blunt-starrer Edge Of Tomorrow added an estimated $9.6M on Saturday to bring its local cume to $16.56M. The screen count has been modified from yesterday’s 4,000 to 6,272, or about a third of the available real estate. The two-day haul is nearly double what Cruise’s Oblivion did in its first three days in China which went on to be that film’s biggest non-U.S. territory last year at $23.7M. It’s also a Friday-Saturday increase, something EOT experienced last weekend in several territories. In all, the Friday gross across 36 international markets was an estimated $19.3M, taking the total to $60.3M — that figure does not include the Saturday numbers from China. Next weekend, EOT will face competition from Godzilla in the Middle Kingdom, followed by Maleficent on June 20.
