International Box Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 4’ Nears $300M Global; ‘Dune 2’ Nears $600M; ‘Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire’ Grabs $16M+ In Phase 1 Overseas Bow

Kung Fu Panda 4 had a rock 'em sock 'em weekend at the foreign box office, earning $55.3M from 69 markets for a $135M overseas cume and $268.2M global. France, Australia, the UK, and Korea are still to release. 

China led the fourquel with $25.7M, including last session's previews. The franchise's history in that fickle market, along with Warner Bros/Legendary's Dune: 

 Part Two's $43.9M running China total, is excellent news for a market that's growing inward. Does hope spring? Wait for that...

KFP4 and Dune 2 details below. Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire opened this weekend for Sony. 

The Gil Kenan-directed sequel grossed $16.4M in its first 25 overseas markets via staggered release. At present rates, it's 15% ahead of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. The global premiere is $61.6M.

The UK opened No. 1 with $5.3M, followed by Mexico with $2.7M. Australia topped the standings with $2M, while Germany fell to $1.7M. Spain started first with $1.3M.

Ghostbusters is usually a domestic property: Afterlife made almost 63% of its global revenue in North America. Japanese, Dutch, French, Brazilian, Italian, and Korean markets remain.

Back to holdovers, Kung Fu Panda 4 added 13 markets this weekend, including China (previewed last session), Brazil, and Netherlands. The picture is doing well at evening shows, indicating substantial adult and child attendance.
