â€˜Independence Day: Resurgenceâ€™ Hits $102 Million Internationally
â€œIndependence Day: Resurgenceâ€ has launched impressively in international markets with US$102.1 million in 57 markets with 21,872 screens. China led the way with US$37.3 million at 6,047 sites, representing the fourth-highest weekend in that market for a Fox title. That nearly matched the somewhat disappointing U.S. opening of US$41.6 million. South Korea led the rest of the pack with US$7.4 million at 926 sites, followed by the U.K. with US$7.3 million from 1,555, Mexico with US$6.8 million at 2,783 and Taiwan with US$3.7 million at 300. India opened with a bang, generating US$3.5 million for the biggest Fox opening of all-time in the market.
Fox also reported â€œterrificâ€ results across Asia and Latin America, with numerous markets generating the biggest opening weekend ever for a Roland Emmerich movie. The film opens in 11 new markets next weekend, including Spain and Sweden.
