BRAZIL: 'Iron Man 3' Triumphs Against 'Epic' Premiere

on May 22, 2013

53429296680800441582126.jpgIron Man 3 survived its first test at the Brazilian box office last weekend. The superhero film faced off against the premiere of Epic, the first animated film to hit the market since The Croods saw its release nine weeks ago. The Croods has grossed $16.7 million in Brazil to date, one of the most successful films of the year in the market. Epic wasn't able to replicate as big of a splash, opening in 621 screens for a $2.3 million opening weekend. Iron Man 3 grossed $2.8 million over the weekend, retaining the top spot but losing in per-screen average to Epic. The premiere of 21 and Over in Brazil, retitled as "Finally 18" for local audiences, also had a strong debut in 118 screens -nearly matching the per-screen average of Iron Man 3 with a $3,293 average. Side Effects opened in seventh placed but filled movie theaters with an equally strong $3,246 average. Domestic film Vai Que Da Certo is winding down its theatrical release rounding out the top ten with a $14.3 million cume -a fantastic figure for a Brazilian film. Somos Tao Jovems might not reach the same heights as its domestic counterpart. Somos Tao Jovems ranked in third last weekend with a $1 million gross, reaching a $7.2 million total in its third week.
