'Pope Joan' heads strong local German b.o.

26 October 2009 7:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Cologne, Germany -- Sonke Wortmann's "Pope Joan" crowned Germany's boxoffice this weekend, one of seven German productions or co-productions to make the top ten.

The Constantin Film production, which stars Johanna Wokalek as a 9th century female pontiff, grossed $4.4 million in its first four days, with 370,000 admissions over 461 theaters. The German-Spanish-Italian co-production was shot in English and also stars John Goodman and David Wenham. Summit Entertainment is handling international sales.

German productions crowded out most imports. Simon Verhoeven's romantic comedy "Men In the City," came in at number three, just behind Disney animated family feature "G-Force." A Warner Bros. release, "Men" stars Christian Ulmen, Til Schweiger and Nadja Uhl and has grossed more than $10 million in its first three weeks.

Besides "G-Force," only two other Hollywood titles made the German top ten: "Up," which came in at number five in its fifth week in release and Sony's romcom "The Ugly Truth, »

Overseas boxoffice still high on 'Up'

25 October 2009 11:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The generally listless pre-holiday season overseas wound down over the weekend with Pixar/Disney's "Up" claiming the No. 1 spot on the foreign circuit for the fifth stanza this year with the relatively modest tally of $19 million drawn from 4,789 screens in 26 territories.

Offshore boxoffice action overall is certain to surge this week as "This Is It," the film cobbled together from footage of Michael Jackson rehearsing for his planned comeback tour, rolls out via Sony at 108 overseas territories.

Pre-Halloween arrivals were Mandate International's "Saw VI", which grossed an estimated $5 million from 800 screens in eight territories including the U.K., where the latest in the horror-thriller franchise opened at No. 2 in the market, and Universal's "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant," premiering in three markets (including a No. 2 Russia bow) for $2.9 million overall from 685 locations.

In its solo-market bow in the U.K., 20th Century Fox's "Fantastic Mr. Fox" drew $2.6 million from 483 locations, »
