Robert Pattinson's Remember Me opened in Argentina, France and several other European countries this weekend, landing at #6 in Paris and its suburbs. The romantic drama's international weekend take was $4.7 million at 2,302 screens in 36 territories. The international total currently stands at $27 million.
Remember Me, which cost $16 million, has thus far grossed $18.7 million in North America. Worldwide total: $45.7 million.
Up to April 4, the film's top foreign markets -- no doubt thanks to Robert Pattinson's Twilight Saga-propelled stardom -- were Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States, $3.15m; Italy, $2.35m; Germany, $1.9m; Brazil, $1.71m; the UK/Ireland/Malta, $1.5m; Australia, $1.21 million (up to Mar. 28); and Spain, $1.1m.
Other markets where Pattinson's Remember Me has grossed more than $250K are: Mexico, $684K; Greece, $423K (up to Mar. 28); Sweden, $405K (up to Mar. 28); Portugal, $347K; Poland, $333K (up to Mar. 28); Austria, $301K; and The Netherlands, $276K.
Remember Me will be opening in Chile and Turkey in the coming weeks. It has yet to open in a few major markets such as China, Japan, and South Korea. It'll surely earn more than $50 million worldwide; possibly as much as $60 million. Not bad for a mixed-to-poorly received "small" movie featuring an as-yet unproven star in an unlikely role.
In Remember Me, Robert Pattinson stars as Tyler Hawkins, a young man at odds with his father (Pierce Brosnan). Eventually, Tyler falls for a young woman (Emilie de Ravin), but all sorts of problems arise.
Also in the film's cast are Lena Olin, Ruby Jerins, Chris Cooper, and Tate Ellington. Remember Me was directed by Allen Coulter from a screenplay by Will Fetters. Jenny Lumet did some (uncredited) rewriting.
