BOX OFFICE: Water for Elephants is a domestic and worldwide success!

Water for Elephants has been performing so well! The movie definitely has legs as predicted after the first weekend. Here are some figures plus some observations to suggest a bigger total than currently posted.

Rob: Reese! WFE might surpass $100M worldwide!


$85.2 million! Fantastic but not complete. Check out the foreign totals:

Countries producing bigger totals (Brazil, Russia, UK) are not updated AND Australia is not included.

Water for Elephants was number 1 at the box office in Australia, beating Thor! Sky News (Australia) reported WFE bringing in $2.628M this past weekend. What a fantastic showing down under. 🙂


$48.9 million! Collecting $400k on Monday, our movie is sure to pass the $50M mark by the end of week! This is so wonderful for WFE. Alt Film Guide noted that the film is the only non-action drama in the top 25 and continues to exceed expectations. After the film opens in all markets and finally bows domestically, it likely will have grossed over $100M. Spectacular. 🙂

    Box Office Mojo: at the bottom of the list of foreign numbers there’s a note that explains why the total doesn’t match the countries individual numbers.

    “Note: Overall foreign totals are updated weekly for most currently playing movies.
    The country breakdowns are updated less frequently and do not necessarily add up to the foreign totals.”

    So the 36 million probably include Australia and other countries.

    That’s fantastic news. So pleased for Rob that he’s showing his acting bankability outside the Twilight franchise. It is a spectacular movie (I’ve seen it 6 times – UK). Onward and upward for Rob, hopefully the industry will start to take him a bit more seriously. Thanks for the update.
