‘Pitch Perfect’ Franchise Crosses Half Billion At Global B.O. For Universal

Posted on: January 9th, 2018 by Archie Binamira

With Monday’s grosses, Universal Pictures and Gold Circle Entertainment’s Pitch Perfect franchise crossed $500 million at the worldwide box office. The third installment in the series will cross $100 million at the global box office today in its first 12 days of release, with 70% of that coming from U.S./Canada.

The first Pitch Perfect earned $115M global in 2012, with $65M made domestically. Pitch Perfect 2 was a huge surprise, stealing No. 1 stateside away from Warner Bros.’ event title Mad Max: Fury Road in May 2015 ($69.2M to $45.4M) and ultimately accumulating $184.3M stateside, $287.4M worldwide. The trilogy’s total to date is $500.9M off combined budgets for the pics of $91M. After all ancillaries, Deadline figured that Pitch Perfect 2 made close to $140M in profit. Pitch Perfect 3 opens this week in eight additional markets including Australia and Italy.

What started as a little film with a ton of online buzz became a breakaway hit when Pitch Perfect grossed $115M worldwide and became one of the top-performing DVD, VOD and pay-cable titles of 2013. The film’s soundtrack went platinum with more than 1 million units sold, and the single “Cups,” sung by Anna Kendrick, achieved triple-platinum status with combined sales of more than 3M units.

‘Jumanji’s Got Game As It Closes In On $500M Worldwide Box Office

Posted on: January 9th, 2018 by Archie Binamira

EXCLUSIVE: Sony’s Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is rocking on to cross $500M worldwide tomorrow. Currently tracking to be No. 1 in 50 offshore markets this frame, it’s eyeing $260M+ at the international box office through Sunday and $241M domestic.

Directed by Jake Kasdan, the movie is swinging high and has acted as strong counterprogramming during the holiday corridor, and beyond. The Dwayne Johnson-starrer has doubled, and in some cases, tripled early international projections and seen strong upwards holds in such markets as Colombia, Russia and the Netherlands. Germany, Australia, Mexico, France and the UK have seen minimal dips. All of this is before China debuts on January 12.

Johnson is a major international draw and has been in China this past week for a premiere and press tour. He stars with Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas and Bobby Cannavale in the new adventure that sees four teenagers sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into its jungle setting, and the bodies of their avatars.

Last weekend, Jumanji ended the frame as the No. 1 movie at overseas turnstiles, narrowly topping Star Wars: The Last Jedi which was in its 3rd full session.

Another hallmark for Sony’s update on the classic 1995 Jumanji is being the No. 3 movie ever in Malaysia, an increasingly important overseas hub for studio fare.

Sony’s marketing team should be credited for pushing the movie early. International press was on set and there was a junket in Hawaii as well as a European premiere tour in the UK, Germany and France. Jonas attended Brazil ComiCon; and in China, Johnson participated in variety show Happy Camp for a Jumanji-themed episode which aired today (again, the movie is yet to debut in the Middle Kingdom so we’ll keep an eye on this next week). Online marketing was also heavy, natch, with talent globally engaging with fans.

In specific markets, Sony dropped a huge animal crate into the middle of Rome that was smashed as if a rhino had escaped (hmmm how does Jurassic World 2 top that?).

In Korea, they took over the subway with jungle antics; same in France with audio of drums triggered by train arrivals.

In Mexico there was a traffic tunnel takeover; the UK had a Clapham Colossus train station unit covered and jungle-dressed the Cromwell Road. Russia, Korea, Australia and other markets were strongly made aware Jumanji was coming.

My personal favorite is having Barcelona football star and ‘Boy Wonder’ Andres Iniesta transported into Jumanji.
