‘Kung Fu Panda 4’ Nears $300M Global, ‘Dune 2’ Nears $600M, and ‘Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire’ Has $16M+ Phase 1 Overseas Bow Box Office Global.

Universal/DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda 4 had a rock 'em sock 'em weekend at the international box office, earning $55.3 million from 69 markets for a $135 million abroad running cume and $268.2 million globally. 

 The property has historically fared well in that volatile market, and, along with the sustained success of Warner Bros/Legendary's Dune: Part Two ($43.9 million total running in China), this is encouraging news for a market that has increasingly turned inward. 

More information on KFP4 and Dune 2 is provided below. Meanwhile, Sony's Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire opened this weekend.

 The sequel, directed by Gil Kenan, is being released gradually and has grossed $16.4 million in its first 25 international countries. 

The United Kingdom was the top opening at No. 1, with $5.3 million, followed by Mexico, which had $2.7 million. Australia topped the list with $2 million, while Germany fell to $1.7 million. Spain started first with $1.3 million.

Remember that Ghostbusters has always been a domestic property: North America accounted for more than 63% of its global revenue. Japan, the Netherlands, France, Brazil, Italy, and Korea are among the international markets remaining on the agenda.

Italy opened at number one with a 57% market share and $4.4 million, surpassing HTTYD3, Sing, Zootopia, and KFP3. The week-long school holidays begin on Wednesday.

In Korea, blockbuster Exhuma is still on fire, having surpassed 10 million admissions with an estimated $73.5 million through Sunday.
