Justice League posted the biggest industry opening day on record in Brazil on Wednesday. The film grossed $3.7 million from 1,509 screens (the widest industry release in the market’s history), capturing 74% of the top 5 market share.
Meanwhile, previews in South Korea registered $1.14 million from 1,195 screens, roughly 50% of the top 5 market share despite limited showtimes. Warner Bros. reports that South Korea’s half-day previews were on par with Wonder Woman‘s full day’s worth of previews. Wonder Woman grossed a total of $15.5 million in the market.
France brought in $1.1 million with 130k admissions from 687 screens on its opening day, taking 61% of the top 5 market share. The results are 19% ahead of Wonder Woman‘s opening day in the market.
Indonesia opened to $895k from 888 screens, outpacing Thor: Ragnarok by 8% and recording WB’s biggest opening day of all time in the market.
Justice League thus begins its theatrical run overseas with $8.5 million from 9 markets. The film expands to 38 additional markets today, including Germany, Italy, Russia, Australia, and the official opening day in South Korea.
