6 June 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

SYDNEY -- Sin City had its way in Italy this weekend but failed to topple Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith in the U.K. and France in a battle for key European territories this weekend. According to estimates, Robert Rodriguez's stylized collaboration with comicmeister Frank Miller earned about $8.3 million on 1,420 screens in five countries for a solid start to its international run that is sure to please executives at Miramax. The noir adaptation of Miller's stories opened to an estimated $3.9 million in the U.K. on 450 screens. Although second behind Sith, this is nonetheless Rodriguez's biggest result in Britain, almost triple that of Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Sin City took about $2.3 million from 500 screens in France, comparable to the performance of Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill-Vol. 2 but trailing Vol. 1's $3.1 million. In Italy, Sin City kicked in at No. 1, earning about $1.8 million from 400 screens, a figure 10% bigger than Kill Bill-Vol 1 and 15% up on Vol. 2. Sith was again the No. 1 picture internationally during the weekend with $36.5 million on 9,200 screens, a boxoffice drop of 40%. This brings the international cume to about $308 million. »
