Warner Bros’ 300 sequel beat off the competition from DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman, while Fox Searchlight capitalised on 12 Years A Slave’s Oscar glory and scored a massive limited debut on The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Spurred on by Academy Awards glory, New Regency, River Road and Plan B’s acclaimed drama by Steve McQueen has surged past $100m through Lionsgate International licensees.
A more appropriate title would be hard to find as Warner Bros’ 300: Rise Of An Empire dominated global box office on an estimated $132.9m and pulled off an $87.8m international launch on 14,478 screens in 58 markets.
