BRAZIL: 'Oblivion' Reigns as New Releases Struggle

on April 24, 2013

None of the three new releases in Brazil were able to crack into the top three last weekend. A slew of hold-over titles maintained their momentum, with tenth place Olympus Has Fallen being the only film that dropped over 33% from last weekend. Oblivion continued in first place with $1.3 million and reaching a $4.1 million total in Brazil. Vai Que Da Certo continued hot on the heels of Tom Cruise with a $1.1 million weekend. The Brazilian film has been a great triumph domestically, grossing $11.6 million. The Croods was the only other film to reach the $1 million mark over the weekend, it has now grossed $14.7 million in Brazil.

Evil Dead opened in fourth place, a strong debut considering it only screened in 100 theaters. The $6,811 average was the highest of the weekend, over the twice the amount that Oblivion amassed in the same category. Premieres for Snitch and Safe Haven were disappointments, however, unable to even reach $500,000 on their first weekend. They recall the lackluster performance of The Call last weekend; the Halle Berry vehicle was unable to take advantage of the star's promotional visit to Brazil as the film flopped upon its release. The Call fell 55% weekend to drop out of the top ten, it has only grossed $529,392 in its two weeks in release.
