'Kong' scales boxoffice ranks

20 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The highly anticipated boxoffice debut of Universal's King Kong was unleashed in 3,568 theaters in North America this weekend and captured $50.1 million, and $66.2 million since its Wednesday release. The big-budget remake, helmed by director Peter Jackson and starring Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody, went day-and-date internationally, grossing a company-best $80.1 million overseas, bringing the worldwide cume to $146.3 million. Among domestic December debuts, the 187-minute Kong, which carries a PG-13 rating, proved to be the fourth-largest wonder on record. Three other pictures have grossed more -- Jackson's The Lord of the Rings films The Return of the King ($72.6 million) and The Two Towers ($62 million), from New Line Cinema, and Buena Vista's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe ($65.6 million). »
