Sorry everyone I’ve been promising to do my box office round up for about a week now but haven’t had a chance to do my research.  However, The Improper has done one for me – although I want to double check the figures since sometimes they are a little out of date (I know I’m a little anal like that).  So until I do, this is what they are saying:

 ““Remember Me,” about a troubled youth attempting to deal with tragedy, is slowly working its way around the world, opening in such far flung country as Argentina and Australia.  [WTF far flung??? Ugh I better do my research soon with comments like this]

So far, the film has grossed $45.7 million at the box office, which obviously isn’t anything close to 3-D blockbuster “Avatar’s” billion dollar plus take. But “Remember Me” only cost $16 million to bring to the big screen.

Experts predict the film could do as much as $60 million worldwide, when all is said and done. In relative terms, that makes it a box office success, especially for a film that received lackluster reviews, mainly for the plot.

In its worldwide trek, the film opened in Argentina, France and other European countries this past weekend, and was a hit in Paris. It came in at No. 6 in the City of Light, which is not bad for an American film.

The drama’s international weekend take was $4.7 million at 2,302 screens in 36 territories, bringing its international box office to $27 million.

The film made back its money before even going overseas. So far it has grossed $18.7 million in North America, bringing the total to $45.7 million.

The film’s top foreign markets before last weekend’s openings were surprisingly Russia ($3.15m), Italy, ($2.35m), Germanyn ($1.9m), Brazil, ($1.71) the UK/Ireland ($1.5m) and Australia ($1.21m).

Going foward, the film will open in several other countries, from Chile in South America to Turkey.

And it has yet to open in several top Asian markets, such as China, Japan, and South Korea.”

Ah Rob I love how you are the quiet achiever.  If you want to read full article, please click on link above.  Oh and The Improper – considering we are “far flung” we seem to have scraped into “top foreign markets”.  I know I get a little sensitive with things like that!

    She says “I told you so”! Imagine if they’d opened in more cinemas and just wait for the DVD release. I think he can be well proud of this film and surely this shows he can do much more outside Twilight. Way to go Rob! and can’t wait for BA and WFE (and RM but SOME of us have to wait for the DVD).

    Thanks so much for the update Maria. Remember Me is a film to be so so very proud of & has done so well. Just have to say again Rob how brilliant you are as Tyler. Just cannot wait for June.

    Still so sorry you didn’t get to experience RM on the big screen Robbie. So unfair 🙁

    Australia is a ‘far flung’ country??? *shakes head*

    Thanks fro the update Maria. RM deserves its success to date and we all know what will happen to the figures when the DVD goes on sale.
    I believe Rob has proved his appeal goes beyond the 12 yr old market with this powerful film.
