Robert Pattinson 'Remember Me' Worldwide Gross Update

Robert Pattinson's Remember Me grossed only $483K at 906 theaters in North America this Easter Weekend. Average per screen: a very low $533. After losing more than 1,000 venues, the romantic drama lost 75 percent of its revenues from a week ago; that's a very sharp drop. Total to date: $18.2 million.

About ten days ago or so, it seemed that Remember Me might be able to reach $20-22 million at the U.S. and Canada box office. Now I find it unlikely that Pattinson's film will even get to $20 million before it ends its run, as it'll probably be shedding hundreds more theaters next weekend. It may cume at $19 million. We'll see.

At least Remember Me is doing better overseas, undoubtedly because of Robert Pattinson's box office appeal. It's no major blockbuster, mind you, but foreign box office revenues have already nearly surpassed those in North America.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, this weekend Remember Me grossed $4.7 million – nearly ten times what it did in the U.S. and Canada – at 2,485 screens in 33 markets. The per-screen average isn't great: only $1,891, but that's a mix of both new and old territories – e.g., Remember Me opened in the UK this weekend; but it has been out in Brazil, Sweden, and Australia and other countries for about three weeks.

Overseas total to date: $17.2 million. A week ago, the international box-office total hovered around $10.5 million. Worldwide total to date: $35.4 million.

Remember Me has yet to open in several major and mid-size markets including China, Japan, France, Denmark, Turkey, South Korea, and Argentina.

Directed by Allen Coulter from a screenplay by first-timer Will Fetters, Remember Me stars Robert Pattinson as a young rebel at odds with his wealthy father (Pierce Brosnan). Emilie de Ravin plays Pattinson's romantic interest. Also in the cast: Chris Cooper, Lena Olin, Ruby Jerins, and Tate Ellington.

Robert Pattinson's romantic drama Remember Me has taken in approximately $10.5 million at the international box office up to March 28 '10, according to figures found at Box Office Mojo. (Australia and Bulgaria, March 21.)

After being greeted by mixed-to-negative reviews, Remember Me has earned a total of $17.7 million in the United States/Canada up to April 1. Its worldwide cume currently stands at about $28.2 million – actually more than that; as stated above, international figures are one week behind.

To date, Remember Me's top international markets have been Russia* with $3.159 million, Brazil with $1.476 million, Italy with $1.043 million, Australia with $916,000 (March 21), and Germany with $843,000. Apparently, Robert Pattinson has a large following in those countries.

Next in line are Greece (423,000), Sweden ($405,000), Poland ($333,000), Mexico ($270,000), Portugal ($229,000), and New Zealand/Fiji ($216,000).

Remember Me, which was executive produced by Pattinson, officially cost $16 million. Summit Entertainment should get about half of the film's worldwide gross (if $28.3 million, that would mean approximately $14 million or so for the studio; the box office split, however, can vary depending on the film and the territories where it has played).

As I've said in previous posts, even after including advertising and distribution costs, Remember Me will most likely end up in the black after worldwide box office rentals and ancillary revenues are added up.

In fact, this latest Robert Pattinson vehicle is already close to covering its production costs at the global box office even though it's just now opening in major markets such as the United Kingdom, The Netherlands, and Spain.

Remember Me has yet to open in Japan, China, France, South Korea, Denmark, Turkey, and Argentina and many other large and mid-size territories.

'Remember Me' DVD

Robert Pattinson's Remember Me will be released on DVD on June 22 – eight days before The Twilight Saga: Eclipse opens in theaters.

For now, I wasn't able to find any details regarding extras. Here's hoping that deleted scenes, outtakes, and a good commentary featuring Pattinson, director Allen Coulter, and first-time screenwriter Will Fetters will be included in the Summit Entertainment release.

It'd be good to hear what they have to say about the making of the film, especially what they feel about the critical reaction to the controversial ending.

Remember Me, a romantic drama co-starring Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, and Pierce Brosnan, was released in the US on March 12 to wildly mixed reviews. To date, the film has grossed $17.7 million domestically (that includes Canada) and about $10.5 million at the international box office up to March 28.

Pattinson is currently shooting Bel Ami in Europe. According to reports, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (which may or may not be two movies) will start shooting in the fall.

Also in the Remember Me cast are Academy Award winner Chris Cooper, Academy Award nominee Lena Olin, Tate Ellington, and Ruby Jerins.
