Django Unchained sticks to no. 1 spot for third week

MUMBAI: With Quentin Tarantino?s Django Unchained staying at the no. 1 spot for the third week consecutively grossing $30.6 million at 6,060 screens in 65 markets, it seems that Oscar-related films continued to dominate the foreign theatrical circuit.

Unchained maintained its number one status in at least 10 territories and for the third straight weekend. The biggest single market remained Germany ($6.35 million drawn from 865 locations, down only about 20 per cent from the prior round; market cume $29.8 million).

The action westerner that costars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz and Leonardo Di Caprio has got as many as five Oscar nominations.

20th Century Fox?s release of Steven Spielberg?s historical epic Lincoln, that has a dozen of nominations expanded its foreign run by more than 20 territories and drew $13 million from 3,510 situations in 43 markets.

Fox?s Life of Pi pulled in $10.1 million from 5,224 situations in 48 territories lifting its foreign total to $443.5 million. The film, based on Yann Martel?s novel, now ranks as Fox?s ninth biggest foreign grosser.

On the other hand, Kathryn Bigelow?s Zero Dark Thirty also expanded its foreign footprint via Universal and other distributors. The film?s weekend take was $3.7 million at 1,400 play dates in eight markets handled by Universal.
