Doug Liman’s alien invasion, war flick starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt opened in the foreign markets over the weekend and garnering $20M. In the U.K., Edge of Tomorrow debuted to $3.1 million, a $2 million haul in Indonesia, $1.5 million in Spain and Italy, and $2.1 million in Germany.
These amounts are not what we’d expect from a $178 tentpole. Maleficent and X-Men: Days of Future Past prove to be worthy cinema rivals, which grossed $100.6M and $95.6M respectively.
Edge of Tomorrow is yet to open in China, Japan, South Korea, Russia, Mexico and 31 other international markets.
X-Men: DOFP has taken the top spot from X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) as the franchise’s highest earning installment. Bryan Singer’s helmed mutant flick garnered a cume of $500.2 million globally beating Brett Ratner’s, which grossed $459.4.
Along with Singer, Lauren Shuler Donner, Hutch Parker and screenwriter Simon Kinberg produced this $200M project, which stars Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Peter Dinklage and Halle Berry.
