BRAZIL: 'The Conjuring' Wins Packed Weekend
on September 18, 2013
The Conjuring won a close head-to-head battle with Planes to finish in first place at the Brazilian box office. it was a packed weekend in Brazil, with four big name titles opening simultaneously. The Conjuring led the pack with a $1.7 million bow, edging out Planes which finished the weekend with a $1.58 million take.
F1 is a popular sport in Brazil, a country with its fair share of idols in the sport. Ron Howard's Rush opened in the country a week ahead of its U.S. limited release, earning $414k from 211 screens. 2 Guns had a $414k debut at 219 screens, falling to the bottom half of the table.
The per-screen averages give us a better picture about the weekend's grosses. The Conjuring's $4,362 average is a good distance away from the competition. The Internship presented a strong hold, falling 36% in its third weekend to post a $2,753 average from 197 screens. Both Rush and 2 Guns were released by local distributors and each occupied about a third of the screens devoted to Planes. Finishing the weekend with a per-screen average below the $2k mark, however, is a sign that these films will have difficulty posting a strong run in the coming weeks.
