Does any one have an idea how much the movie made outside the US last week?

That makes it $81.7 million worldwide - with the old foreign figures. We will have official up-to-date worldwide figures early next week.

Domestic:  $50,267,000    61.5%
+ Foreign:  $31,513,498    38.5%

-------------------------------------
 
= Worldwide:  $81,780,498

Figures are from www.boxofficemojo.com and are as of Sunday, June 22, 2008 (today)

The Happening is also the 3rd highest grossing R-rated film of 2008 (it just beat out The Strangers, and ahead of it are Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Sex and the City)

I saw the film for the second time last night, and the theater was half to three-fourths full. I think the film has done very well for being R-rated (restricting much of Night's previous targetted audience to 17 and over). I read where many aren't happy with the film, but I think that's because people have expectations from Night to continue what he does from one film to the next. Yes, this time his pacing was different - I think he's allowed to try new things, and he does. He wanted to do a "90-minute paranoia movie" and he did just that - and a great one!

The first time I saw it I wished he had kept that green was the color of love (regarding the mood ring), but now I understand why he removed it. First, it would have been too much - people would have rolled their eyes at it no matter how fitting it was for the situation and the characters. Second, the idea that neither Elliot nor Alma could remember meant that they had been emotionally apart for quite a while (meaning that their marital problems existed long before the events of the film). Night made the choices he did so that the film would be fast paced - that's what he wanted. He still made room for character moments - Julian's anquish while handing Jess over to Elliot and Alma is one of the better examples of that in the film. Plus, the situation wasn't slow in building - like Signs. The threat happened more and more, meaning things had to move faster.

Just want to remind you that the overseas figures are a week old. If anyone finds the updated figures, do share.

Should we consider this movie a HIT? Or we should wait until it reaches the $100mil mark?

Sorry, I'm not too hip to the whole business thing.  Is 100 Mil worldwide a really good thing?  Or is it just ok?  And what point does Fox and UTV start reaping profit?

It's probably around the $130 million mark that Fox and UTV start seeing money. Nobody knows for sure.
