Refresh for latest…: In its global launch, Disney’s Jungle Cruise grossed $61.8M at worldwide turnstiles. That does not include the “over $30M” that came from Disney+ in the day-and-date streaming release (which leads to $91.8M as Anthony has reported). In pure theatrical terms, the Dwayne Johnson/Emily Blunt-starrer performed ahead of expectations domestically, and came in vastly lower at the international box office compared to pre-weekend estimates.

While the $27.6M international start for Jungle Cruise is well below the $40M projected debut, even rivals today agree the film is facing several issues which include a changing overseas Covid landscape as well as strong local titles in some markets.

Emily Blunt’s Kids Have Had No Interest In Her Movies Until ‘Jungle Cruise’

  Emily Blunt’s Kids Have Had No Interest In Her Movies Until ‘Jungle Cruise’ “Jungle Cruise” is a very special movie for Emily Blunt, offering a lot of firsts. For example, not only does it mark the first time she’s co-starred with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and her first movie based on a Disneyland ride, it’s also the first movie she’s been in that her children might actually watch. Blunt, who shares daughters Hazel, 7, and Violet, 4, with husband John Krasinski, discussed her kids while appearing on Thursday's "Live with Kelly and Ryan" to promote "Jungle Cruise".

To wit: France is still getting used to the required health pass (or negative Covid test) to gain entry to cinemas. Jungle Cruise ended up No. 2 there (behind local adventure comedy Kaamelott) with $1.7M. Where Jungle Cruise excelled was the UK with $3.2M, although that was below Warner Bros/DC’s The Suicide Squad which opened early to $4.7M.

The latter film went out in five overseas markets this session before it adds 64 more next weekend. In total, Suicide Squad grossed $7M during this frame.

In these uncertain times it’s important to take note of the various and varying situations around the world. Disney has been extra in the barrel this week because of the Black Widow/Scarlett Johansson issue, but does that translate to overseas audiences? Probably not. There is absolutely unquantifiable piracy going on each time a movie appears on a premium streaming service, and that is adding to a drag on box office overall. The strength of local movies is also a factor.
