The most recent weekend offshore was down just 21% in the actuals, despite added competition from other major releases. The holds on this 36-years-later sequel have been amazing.
It may be a little too on the nose, but I can't resist saying what's good for the Goose is good for the gander. As I noted on Sunday, it's also encouraging for other studios. Everyone is championing one another when there is a hit. From my current perch here at CineEurope in Barcelona, where Paramount has its presentation tomorrow morning — and where Cruise made a surprise appearance last year — this movie is just invigorating exhibition.
Cruise landed in Korea this past weekend — a huge market for him — and fans were out in droves. TGM opens there on Thursday. This Joseph Kosinski-directed film is simply on a tear, and as we've previously noted, clearly has $1B in its sights as soon as next week.
