The twentieth anniversary 3D version of Steven Spielberg’s ‘Jurassic Park’ made a flying start in China, grossing an outstanding $28.8m from 2,500 theatres over a six-day release. The family adventure revamp, which had a 12 month 3D conversion, was only active in 11 international territories over the weekend session and finished on $30m to claim the No. 1 spot. It now stands on $44.5m internationally and, after factoring in North America, $89.9m worldwide.
Last weekend’s No. 1, ‘Elysium’, had a strong international hold, earning a further $20m from 47 territories. Neill Blomkamp’s action sci-fi arrived top in the UK after earning $4.8m over the three day period, which was on a par with the launch of the filmmaker’s debut film, ‘District 9’ four years ago. France delivered the film’s second highest weekend tally with a solid $2.5m holdover.
Another feature benefiting from a China debut boost, ‘Monsters University’, came in third after grossing a further $19.6m. Disney’s adventure animation has now taken $424.8m internationally.
‘Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters’ was close behind on $18.4m from 43 markets, taking its international tally to $62.6m. Russia led the way with a $4.9m debut.
‘Despicable Me 2’ passed the $800m worldwide milestone on Saturday. The comedy sequel is currently the second highest worldwide release of the year – behind ‘Iron Man 3’ – and the seventh most successful animation of all time. It is still to arrive in South Korea, Japan and Italy.generic levitrageneric silvitrageneric silvitra onlinesilvitra generic online
