NUMBERS Are In … Beyonce Film Performs WELL In The US … But Flops BADLY Overseas!!!

Tiffany Brockworth |

Beyoncé’s new concert film did very well at the U.S. box office, where it had the biggest opening at the early December box office in almost two decades. But that’s only half the story. Media Take Out learned that Beyonce’s film flopped PRETTY BADLY overseas.

Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé — which Beyonce wrote, directed and produced — brought in a better-than-expected $21 million from 2,536 locations in its domestic debut after being graced with a coveted A+ CinemaScore from audiences and glowing reviews.

That’s the good news. Now for the bad news.

Media Take Out confirmed that Beyonce, who bills herself as an “international superstar,” had trouble selling tickets overseas. It sold just $6.4 million in every country BUT the US.

The concert movie struggled badly overseas, however, opening to an estimated $6.4 million from 94 markets, well behind an expected $20 million. That averages out to about only 800 people per country went to her movie.

It came in No. 4 in the U.K,, for example, and No. 6 in Australia – in this horrible movie market landscape, that’s VERY bad.
