From Paramount and Platinum Dunes, the John Krasinski-helmed silent horror pic had another scary good hold overseas in the third session. It dipped just 37% from last weekend, which itself had dropped by just 25%. Speaking volumes in 57 markets, it added $15M for an offshore cume of $74.8M and a worldwide tally of $207.16M including its stellar domestic run. It still has France, Japan and China to come.
For all markets in release, the Krasinski/Emily Blunt-starrer is now 87% above Don’t Breathe, 61% above Get Out, 58% over Lights Out, 5% above The Conjuring and 9% below Split. (The latter last year finaled at $140M overseas.)
In new openings, Spain bowed No. 2 with $891K at 287 locations and Vietnam kicked off with $302K at 139 locations for No. 3.
The UK is the top play so far with $11.7M after a 47% dip from the sophomore frame. The best 3rd weekend hold was in Australia with a 26% drop for a $6.7M cume. Rounding out the Top 5 market cumes are Mexico ($6.6M/3rd weekend), Brazil ($5.3M/3rd weekend) and Russia ($4.1M/2nd weekend).
