Global Box Office: Final 'Hobbit' Film Earns Stellar $117.6 Million in Early Foreign Launch http://t.co/iYCs4qCWyS— Hollywood Reporter (@THR) December 14, 2014
- Thanks to Mockingjay: Part 1, Lionsgate crosses $1 billion at the international box office for the third year in a row.
- Mockingjay outpacing Catching Fire in 18 territories, but still lowest grossing entry of the franchise.
- Worldwide total is at $611,398,000. Japan and China are the only major territories where the movie hasn't been relased yet.
- Production and marketing budget for Mockingjay Part 1 estimated to be $180 millions [so no, ONTD, Lionsgate is definitely not regretting splitting the movies].
- The Battle of the Five Armies opened to an impressive $117.6 million in 37 foreign markets.
- Exodus earned $18.8 million this weekend for an international total of $50 million. Worldwide total is at a relatively tepid $74 millions (against a $140 million production budget). Next big markets to open are Brazil, Germany, and the UK where the movie will be competing against The Hobbit [Good luck with that, LMAO.]
