After its disastrous domestic opening weekend, Dark Phoenix has posted a similarly disappointing box office total overseas.
Fox's final main installment in its long-running X-Men franchise has earned $103.7 million overseas. Combined with its underperformance at the domestic box office over its opening weekend, the film currently has earned $136.5 million at the global box office.
The largest market has been China, with $45.6 million of the overseas film earnings coming from the East Asian country, boosted by a local three-day holiday weekend that ended up pulling in more than its domestic opening of $32.8 million. The movie received a slight boost from IMAX screenings, with $9.1 million earned overseas, Fox's second best opening weekend in the theatrical format.
Comparatively, the film has opened to 30% less overseas than 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse and 23% less than 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past. At its current trajectory, the film is on pace to earn just over $200 million overseas and around $300 million worldwide, but it will face competition from Pixar's Toy Story 4 next weekend and may suffer even more than projected as a result.
Directed and written by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters and Jessica Chastain. The film is out in theaters now.
