Robert Pattinson’s Remember Me has likely crossed — or at least is quite near — the $55 million mark worldwide. In the United States and Canada, Allen Coulter’s romantic melodrama starring Pattinson, Lost’s Emilie de Ravin, and Pierce Brosnan, has grossed $19.025 million to date. Overseas, box office figures found at Box Office Mojo add up to $33.139m. Total: 52,164m.
However, as I’ve mentioned in a previous post about Remember Me’s international box-office performance, Box Office Mojo’s figures for foreign countries are incomplete.
Less than half the countries listed have fully updated box office totals (Sunday, May 2), while key markets such as Brazil, Australia, Russia, and "near-major" markets such as the Netherlands and Poland haven’t had their figures updated in weeks. Also, Swiss figures are unavailable.
Additionally, British and French box office numbers for Remember Me are a week old.
Remember Me has done particularly well in the UK — the London-born Pattinson was present at the movie’s premiere in his native city — grossing $5.494 million (includes Ireland).
Although that doesn’t mean Remember Me was a runaway hit in that country, it does mean that it did quite well for a "non-commercial" intimate drama. Obviously, Pattinson was the chief reason for the film’s box office pull.
Other key Remember Me markets are: France with $3.534 million, Russia/CIS with $3.396 million, Germany with $3.311 million, Spain with $2.566 million, Italy with $2.358 million, Brazil $1.893 million, Belgium/Luxemburg with $1.288 million, and Australia with $1.216m.
Remember Me has yet to open in three major markets: China, Japan, and South Korea. It opens in Hungary, where Pattinson filmed parts of Bel Ami, today.
