With $33.3 million from 75 territories, “Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga” is stalling at the international box office. Despite a $168 million production budget, the fifth installment in director George Miller’s post-apocalyptic series debuted with a modest $58.9 million worldwide gross during its first weekend of release.

In the country, the Warner Bros. In the race for the top spot on the box office rankings, the prequel “Furiosa” is closely trailing Sony’s animated “The Garfield Movie,” having made an estimated $25 million over the weekend and $31 million through Monday, Memorial Day. Whichever arrives at position zero. 1. This is among the worst Memorial Day weekends in recent memory.

If things continue this way, “Furiosa” will have a hard time topping “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which came out in 2015. Despite having a similarly large budget, the Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron movie brought in $380 million. The R-rated sequel, which centers on Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth, has garnered positive reviews from critics and viewers alike, but it hasn’t garnered the same level of acclaim as “Fury Road,” which has prevented it from expanding beyond its core audience of older male moviegoers.

Beyond the U.S. s. With $4.5 million, Korea was the country where “Furiosa” started the strongest, followed by France with $2.6 million, the UK with $2.5 million, Mexico with $2.4 million, and Australia with $2.2 million. Including $40.7 million from overseas markets, Imax screens brought in $90.5 million from worldwide box office sales.

With $91.1 million in global ticket sales since it started its international rollout a few weeks ago, “The Garfield Movie” is dominating the market. At $60 million, “Garfield,” which stars Chris Pratt as the well-known orange cat who despises Mondays, was much less costly than “Furisoa.”. With $14 million from 51 foreign markets, it ranked third on the international weekend charts. A number of significant markets, including France, Australia, and Japan, have not yet seen the release of “The Garfield Movie.”. Currently, Mexico ($17.4 million) and Germany ($5.2 million) represent the largest markets.

With $20.6 million from 52 markets, Disney and 20th Century’s “Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes” came in second on the international charts. The fourth installment in the “Apes” reboot franchise brought in $172 million overseas and $294.8 million worldwide so far, with $17.1 million in North America over the four-day weekend. With those ticket sales, the film is now the fourth highest grossing picture of the year. To equal the global total of its predecessors, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” ($481 million), “War for the Planet of the Apes” ($490 million), and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (a series-best $710 million), “Kingdom,” which has a budget of $160 million, will still require a lot more momentum.

With $111,3 million from 64 territories, Paramount’s fantasy-comedy “IF,” starring Ryan Reynolds and directed by John Krasinski, trailed in fourth place on the international charts. Throughout the four-day holiday weekend, the family-friendly movie brought in about $21 million domestically, increasing “IF’s” total to $103.6 million worldwide. To make up for its high production and marketing costs, the film needs to have a strong summer opening weekend.
