ROTK Dips at the Box Office

Just like Van Helsing's debut of last weekend, Troy almost matched its domestic weekend gross with its international weekend gross.  The film grossed an estimated $54.7m overseas in its debut weekend.  The film opened in 47 markets, ranking No. 1 everywhere.  "We are pleased to start the summer season with this strong opening of Troy, and look forward to continued success as we expand into additional territories in the coming weeks," said Veronika Kwan-Rubinek, President International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.

In Greece, the home of Homer, Troy dethroned The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King with the biggest three-day opening of all time (excluding previews), grossing an outstanding $1.7m (€1.5m).  In addition, Sunday's gross of $691k (€582k) was the biggest single day ever.  The film also resonated extremely well in Turkey, where Troy actually stood, with the second biggest bow ever and the best bow of the year.  The film grossed $1.4m (Lira 2.2trillion).
