'Inferno' RIses Past $100 Million Internationally at the Box Office
Tom Hanks' Inferno has crossed over $100 million in 64 international markets in its opening ten days. Ron Howard has teamed with Hanks following The Da Vinci Code and Angels and Demons, though the sequel was a long time coming comparatively.
The franchise has earned over a billion dollars to date, and the new film operates under a budget of about $75 million. That's about half of Angels and Demons' own budget.
The film arrives in the U.S. on the 28th of October, while it lands in Japan, South Korea, and China on that same day. November 9 is its launch in France.
“Tom Hanks has proven yet again that he is one of the world’s biggest stars, and Robert Langdon is one of his most iconic roles,” said Josh Greenstein, president of worldwide marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures.
“Ron and Brian have delivered a film that hits the mark on everything that global audiences love about this series. This kind of international performance gives us strong momentum as we open domestically and continue to roll out in some of the most highly anticipated international markets this weekend.”
