‘The Jungle Book’ Swings Past the $200M Domestic Mark After $5.86M Tuesday Take

Disney’s The Jungle Book grossed $5.86 million on Tuesday to top the daily box office for a twelfth consecutive day.  In the process, the blockbuster 3D live-action computer animated hybrid directed by Jon Favreau surpassed the $200 million domestic mark yesterday.  The Jungle Book was up a very healthy 41 percent over Monday and down 35 percent from last Tuesday.  The Jungle Book continues to outpace its already lofty expectations with a twelve-day take of $202.22 million.  That places the film a very impressive 35 percent ahead of the $150.25 million twelve-day gross of 2013’s Oz: The Great and Powerful and just 9 percent behind the $221.40 million twelve-day take of 2010’s Alice in Wonderland.

Overseas, The Jungle Book took in an estimated $9.4 million on Tuesday.  That brings the film’s overseas total to $361.3 million and the film’s global cume to a massive $563.6 million.  Key overseas total for the film to date include $104.7 million in China, $33.0 million in the United Kingdom, $30.7 million in India, $17.9 million in Russia, $16.7 million in Australia, $16.4 million in Mexico and $16.1 million in France.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War held steady in a distant second place with $1.75 million.  Universal’s follow-up to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman was up 39 percent over Monday’s performance.  While The Huntsman: Winter’s War experienced a nice daily percentage increase yesterday, in the bigger picture the film is still performing softly with a five-day start of just $22.46 million.  That is below the film’s already scaled back expectations and places the film 42 percent behind the $38.97 million five-day take of 2012’s Wrath of the Titans.

Barbershop: The Next Cut grossed $0.924 million to remain in third.  The Ice Cube led comedy sequel from Warner Bros., New Line and MGM increased 23 percent over Monday and decreased a solid 40 percent from last Tuesday.  Barbershop: The Next Cut continues to perform in line with expectations with a twelve-day gross of $37.40 million.  Without taking into account ticket price inflation, the film is running 18 percent behind the $45.67 million twelve-day take of 2004’s Barbershop 2: Back in Business.
