Top Gun: Maverick from Paramount/Skydance and Jurassic World Dominion from Universal/Amblin had huge weekends at the global and international box office, while Warner Bros.’ newcomer Elvis took in $50.5 million globally. According to previous reports, Tom Cruise’s latest film, The Global Pandemic, surpassed $1 billion in worldwide box office receipts in just 31 days, making it the only other film to accomplish this feat during the pandemic.
A $43 million foreign box office weekend for Universal/third Amblin’s Jurassic movie has propelled it to $747 million worldwide. Only seven films have grossed more than $700 million throughout the pandemic. A total of $443.8 million is expected to have been spent offshore as of Sunday. And that’s only a 45% decrease. Is it on track to surpass the $1 billion mark? Yes, it appears that that.
Across 50 international regions, Warner Bros.’s Elvis is off to a rocking start with $20 million in ticket sales. To put things in perspective, Universal/Despicable Illumination’s Me 3 and Minions: The Rise Of Gru both opened in the top five at the box office this weekend, while Minions: The Rise Of Gru debuted at number one with $3.7 million.
WB’s Baz Luhrmann-directed biopic raked in $20 million in 50 countries. The film had its international premiere at Cannes and was recently shown at the CineEurope convention in Barcelona for European exhibitors. There was a $560K IMAX total.
In today’s like-for-like markets, Elvis leads by 8% over Rocketman and by 24% over both Moulin Rouge and House Of Gucci. Following Japan on July 12th, Korea will follow on July 13th, and Latin America will follow on July 14th.
A total of $4.7 million came from Australia and the United Kingdom. Compared to The Great Gatsby, this is Luhrmann’s second-best opening in Australia, while in the United Kingdom, it is nearly on a level with Rocketman, 12 percent above Great Gatsby, and 25 percent above Warner Brothers’ A Star Is Born.

The Black Phone
With $12.5 million in ticket sales in 45 markets, this Universal/Blumhouse horror flick ranks among Ouija, Don’t Breathe and Get Out. The overall sum is $35.8 million. The Conjuring 3 opened to a better start for a horror/thriller during the pandemic age, but Mexico took the lead with $3.4M, making it the industry’s 12th greatest horror opening of all time. It came in second place to Disney’s Lightyear in the toy industry.
Just like Don’t Breathe, Don’t Breathe’s UK debut raked in $1.7 million. The weekend’s box office had a significant leap over Friday’s, defying the tendency of many pandemic horror films, which saw their numbers fall around the same time.

France debuted at No. 3 with $800,000, right behind Halloween Kills and Don’t Breathe. The Scream revival came in second place with $700,000 in Saudi Arabia, ahead of all other pandemic horrors save The Conjuring 3 and A Quiet Place II, which opened at No. 1. A $700,000 opening throughout the rest of the Middle East was the pandemic’s highest horror opening ahead of Split and Halloween.
The greatest opening day for a horror picture since Old in July 2021 and a weekend total of $600,000, in line with Halloween Kills and ahead of the sequel to Quiet Place II, were both achieved in Spain this weekend. As of this writing, just four countries stand out: Japan, Australia, Brazil, and Korea.
