When using restated international box office numbers, this would qualify the sequel as the 9th highest-grossing movie ever worldwide (currency exchanges are in massive flux at the moment with, notably, the euro and the dollar essentially at rare parity; so a drag for Hollywood). In non-restated figures, TGM comes in at No. 12 — either way an astonishing achievement, especially for a film that did not play in China or Russia. The breakdown through today is $683.4M domestic (surpassing Avengers: Infinity War as the No. 6 highest-grossing movie in history) and $720M overseas.
Maverick is headed to digital this week for purchase only, and then 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD November 1 from Paramount Home Entertainment. But it will remain in theaters.
Overseas this frame, the Tom Cruise phenom added $8.7M in 63 markets, essentially flat with last session. Throughout its 13-week run, the holds on this Joseph Kosinski-directed movie have been out of this world.
Several major markets were up this weekend including Germany (+36%), the UK (+28%) and France (+6%). Elsewhere, Netherlands spiked 46% while Belgium was up 42% and Austria 19%.
TGM is Cruise’s biggest movie of all time. For Paramount, it is the biggest live-action title in 37 offshore markets including the UK, Australia, Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, Korea and Saudi Arabia.
The UK for its part is on the verge of crossing $100M with $98.5M to date. Despite recent competition from local titles, Japan has reached $85.8M — landing at No. 2 this session and down just 13% from last. Korea’s 9th weekend dipped 22% for a $64.6M cume to date. Australia slid 14% for $62.2M through today and France has hit $54.7M.
