Robocop's Worldwide Box Office Reaches $31.5M

Joel Kinnaman in "Robocop"

Robocop opened a couple weeks ago in Asia to take advantage of the Chinese New Year holidays and took in a solid $5.5M from three small territories. I can see why after a press screening. One of the key locations in the film is China, although I think Hollywood needs to think just a bit harder than rice paddies to represent the country.

The reboot of Paul Verhoeven’s 80’s hit expanded to nearly 50 markets worldwide the following weekend and collected a solid $20M.

Jose Padilha’s Robocop, which stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, and Samuel L. Jackson, opened in the U.S. yesterday and pulled in a weak $2.8M. Sony blames the Northeast storms, but I doubt it. We’ll see this weekend.

Worldwide, the film has taken in a total of $31.5M in two weeks, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

With a $120M pricetag, the studio would need Robocop to round up $240M in worldwide ticket sales. It can’t afford to underperform domestically.

The good news for the Sci-Fi thriller is it still hasn’t opened in several major markets yet: China, Japan, South Korea, India, Russia, Brazil, and Mexico.
