'Edge of Tomorrow' tops International Box Office with $82m

Variety has reported that Doug Liman's Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, has topped the International Box Office this weekend with $82 million, bringing the film's total international haul to $111 million.

The number includes a $25 million opening in China, which will likely stand as Tom Cruise's biggest opening in the country.

“This is a film that has tremendous global appeal,” Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, president of international distribution at Warner Bros., said. “People love Tom Cruise internationally and they love this kind of film.”

The film fared slightly less well in the US, where it opened at just under $30 million.

“Edge of Tomorrow” rolled out over 19,000 screens in 63 markets. Besides China, the notable results were South Korea ($16.6 million), Russia ($8.6 million), Mexico ($3.1 million) and France ($3.2 million).

The film has debuted in most of the largest foreign markets, save for Japan, where it opens on July 4. Kwan Vandenberg said she expects the film will play well in the country because it is based on a Japanese manga novel, “All You Need is Kill.”
