Universal brought the film back to more than 2,600 screens as it was also opened in China
Fresh from the three Oscar wins, including Best Picture, Universal’s “Green Book” saw a big bump at the cash register four months after its release.
Universal has expanded DreamWorks / Participant Media production this week to 2.641 screens, near the largest number in its theater version. The result was a total of $ 4.5 million, which was only defeated by its $ 5.5 million during the opening weekend and the $ 5.4 million it earned on the weekend after the Oscar nominations.
Created on a budget of $ 23 million, “Green Book” had a disappointing start on Thanksgiving weekend in the case of films like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” and “Creed II.” But with an A + from CinemaScore polls, the film steadily in winter, never more than $ 1 million in one weekend. The domestic total of the film is now just under $ 76 million.
“Green Book” was also opened in China, where the interest in Hollywood import led to a strong box office of $ 17.1 million. Although it was not the weekend’s top movie in that market – “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World” almost doubled that total by $ 33.4 million – “Green Book” now has the second highest opening of a Best Picture winner in China he is only behind “Titanic”. Amblin and Lionsgate arrange the distribution of the film abroad, while the global total now reaches $ 188 million.
“Green Book” was not the only film that had an Oscar shock. Best winner of the animated feature “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” was reissued in 2,404 screens in the interior and raised $ 2.1 million in its 12th weekend. The Oscar winner is known as the largest domestic edition of Sony Animation with $ 187.3 million.
