‘Insurgent’ Seizes Top Spot Worldwide and Opens to $101M Globally and $54M Domestically
Both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety are reporting that Insurgent has seized the #1 spot in the country in its opening weekend. Insurgent has made so far $101 million globally ($54 million domestically and $47 million internationally), a bit shy of the $54.6 million domestic opening that Divergent had last year during the same weekend.
According to THR:
Insurgent grossed $54 million domestically — easily enough to come in No. 1 — and $47 million internationally, where it topped the chart in 66 of 76 markets. The sequel saw big gains over Divergent in many countries, including a 106 percent uptick in Brazil, followed by 71 percent in France and 54 percent in the U.K.
Heading into the weekend, tracking suggested Insurgent would open in the $55 million to $60 million range domestically, thanks in part to a 3D release, something the first film didn’t offer. Insurgent cost $110 million, compared to $90 million for Divergent.
