‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald’ Takes $253M Ww Bow; ‘Venom’ Voracious In China Milestones – International Box Office

  • Deadline
Update, writethru: Warner BrosFantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald cast a $191M spell at the international box office this weekend for a global launch of $253M. The opening in 79 overseas markets is within the range that we were seeing ahead of the bow and surpasses the start of Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them by 2.7% when using historical rates on the previous movie. In 43 individual markets, Newt Scamander and crew opened bigger than their earlier outing, and set a series of offshore milestones — but they got licked by Venom in China where the Sony pic has become the 3rd biggest superhero title of all time.

Spinoff sequel FB2, directed by David Yates and scripted by Jk Rowling, set record openings for the entire Wizarding World in 18 markets. Warner itself logged its best starts of 2018 in 30, namely some of the key European majors like France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the UK.
