Written under: Business, Entertainment, Music
The Michael Jackson documentary movie, This Is It, is delighting all audiences worldwide and many are still expected to come and see the film.
The Sony Pictures movie has reportedly taken in an estimated $68.5 million already over five days outside the U.S. and Canada, this is more than double than its domestic total.
“This Is It” opened to a studio-estimated $68.5 million in 108 foreign territories from Wednesday through Sunday and $32.5 million in the U.S. and Canada, where it started late Tuesday.
Its biggest international market was Japan, where “This Is It” sold $10.4 million worth of tickets, the third-biggest opening of the year in the country behind a Japanese film and “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.”
