Black Panther 2 Jumps To $676M WW; Strange World Inanimate – Deadline

In its third weekend, Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever went on to rule at the global and international box office. With a $32.1 million foreign frame (-53%), the sequel has an overseas total of $308 million for $675.6 million worldwide until Sunday.

Before we take a closer look at the hold Wakanda foreverHowever, attention turns to Disney’s new entry this session, the animated Strange World which arrived with a bang at $9.2 million in 43 overseas markets and $27.8 million worldwide, including the domestic five-day holiday.

Strange World is original animated IP that, as we entered this weekend, saw a $25M offshore start and ended up worlds away.

The film about a family of explorers entered the overseas landscape without holidays to boost it and the World Cup acted as a distraction while also skipping several markets. Last June, Disney chose to abandon a theatrical release in France as a stand against the market’s archaic windowing system. Then, as we reported last week, the studio preemptively pulled the theatrical release in more than 20 international markets where the movie’s LGBTQ+ content would have most likely prompted demands for edits.

By this preventive step with Strange World in areas like the Middle East, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Pakistan, Turkey, Vietnam, and East and West Africa, we’ve noticed that Disney is probably leaving money on the table. Past few years Encanto did just under $25M in the same markets where Strange World is not free – and that itself was lower than it could possibly be given Encanto went out when many of those areas were struggling with Omicron.

Eventually, Strange World was consistent in that it just didn’t click anywhere. The top market was the UK at $1 million, followed by Spain, Mexico and Italy with $700K piece and Germany at $600K. The movie is eyeing a potential $40 million finish overseas. See Anthony’s take on why it didn’t flow straight to everywhere.
