Tomb Raider has opened this weekend with an estimated $126m worldwide. Though the news in North America that the film opened to $23.5m is a little disappointing the news elsewhere is much more encouraging.
The film has opened in second place in the US falling slightly short of Black Panther which holds the top spot for a fifth consecutive week. Panther took in an approximate $27m to hold on to the top spot. It’s continues its hugely successful run as the only Marvel movie to last more than three weeks in the top spot.
Tomb Raider has added an impressive $84.5m internationally. Highlights from this weekend include a $41.1m from China for Warner Bros. seventh largest opening ever in the market. The film also made $4.4m in Russia, $4.2m here in the UK and $3.2m in France and had $2.1m debuts in Germany, Mexico, Australia and Brazil. It opens this week in Japan on Wednesday, March 21.
The film had previously opened in several markets last weekend.
