The “Wonka” film is not only taking the domestic box-office crown, it’s set to do the same internationally this weekend.

After having opened early in three dozen markets last weekend, the film expanded into as many new countries again this weekend and managed to take in a further $53.6 million outside the U.S. in its second weekend.

Combined with its domestic start of what is now said to be $39 million, the film will finish Sunday with $151.4 million already in the can from a $125 million production budget. Momentum is good enough it should carry it through the Christmas/New Year holiday.

Elswhere Universal and Illumination’s “Migration” continued its staggered release with a further $5.2 million overseas – now pulling in $12.3 million from two dozen markets so far.

Next, “The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes” will cross the $300 million mark worldwise on Sunday, showing impressive legs overall for the prequel. It came in second with $6.1 million domestically.

“The Boy and the Heron” and “Godzilla Minus One” were third and fourth respectively in the U.S. with $5.1 million and $4.8 million respectively. Respectively the films have made $23.1 million and $30 million domestically, along with $110 million and $64 million worldwide.

In limited domestic release, “The Zone of Interest” snagged a $31,198 best per-theater-average from four screens – said to be the best per-theater-average for a foreign language film since 2019’s Oscar-winning “Parasite”.
