Ridley Scott’s historical epic Napoleon was the #1 movie in most major international markets this weekend. With $79 million and counting it beat off the other big names to top Worldwide box-office grosses, defying mixed reviews from both critics and audiences.

“I sneer at your mixed reviews… in French.”


Domestically, in the US, it came in second place, behind The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes at $32.5 million vs. $42 million. The Hunger Games prequel is now edging up to $198 million.

Bear in mind, for purposes of box office, the industry classes this as a five-day holiday weekend in the USA.

Disney’s animated Wish was in third place with $31.7 million domestic and another $17.5 million global. It is still to open in some major overseas markets, but either way a $49 million global opening weekend for a new Disney animation is underperformance.

Trolls Band Together just keeps on trucking in fourth with $25.3 million domestic, then Eli Roth’s Thanksgiving with $11.1 million.

The Marvels continue to sink. A $9.2 million domestic adds to just $187 million globally so far, meaning it is now almost beyond doubt that this will be the lowest-grossing MCU entry to date.


How’s that working out for you?


Better news elsewhere for Five Nights at Freddy’s as that becomes the highest-grossing Blumhouse release of all time with a $283.1 million haul.
