Another week, another few million in global box office for Legend of Tarzan. The film now stands at $354.6M globally, which is 1.97x budget — just short of the “bragging right” threshold of 2x budget that Hollywood tends to use as a threshold for success in evaluating performances. Clearly at 1.97x, Legend of Tarzan has substantially achieved the 2x goal — but it would certainly feel better for all concerned if it could actually get there, rather than fall just short. This week, a total of $2M was added, after $5.3M the previous week.
The theater count dropped on Friday from 338 to 288 — which isn’t too bad, considering where we are in the run. Weekend numbers were $300k, and the previous full week was a little over $500k. Depending on how long the long tail is — we could be looking at another $1m or so from domestic.
Here is the full domestic chart, weekend by weekend.
On the foreign side, the theater count is dropping pretty rapidly. Out of 40 foreign territories exhibited, only five are still alive. It’s hard to see more than another $1m or so unless there’s a surprise pocket remaining in foreign that I’m not seeing.
