LOOPER 2012 Box Office: Sleeper Hit But No '$23 Million' in China

Looper 2012 Joseph Gordon-LevittLooper 2012: Joseph Gordon-Levitt sci-fier tops North American box office two weekdays in a row

Looper, the October 2012 sleeper hit starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, surpassed last weekend's top movie, Hotel Transylvania, two days in a row this week: on Tuesday, Oct. 2 ($2.36 million vs. $2.19m) and Wed., Oct. 3 ($1.55 million vs. $1.54m) according to figures found at Box Office Mojo.

Though hardly a blockbuster, the Rian Johnson-directed $30 million-budgeted sci-fier has been performing quite well domestically. With $26.49 million after six days, Looper is clearly way ahead of the previous weekend's releases: After 13 days out, Jake Gyllenhaal / Michael Peña's End of Watch has collected $28.22 million, Clint Eastwood / Amy Adams' Trouble with the Curve $25.28 million, Jennifer Lawrence's House at the End of the Street $23.44 million, and Karl Urban's disastrous Dredd $11.79 million.

Looper 2012 international box office

Looper's international prospects seemed iffy at first – no international box office draws, no 3D – but the film has performed surprisingly well in a few territories, particularly Russia ($5.08 million), the United Kingdom ($3.92 million), and Australia ($3.02m). In 12 markets listed on the Box Office Mojo chart, Looper has brought in around $14 million, in addition to approximately $3.5-$4 million in China as reported at Box Office Mojo – not “$23 to $25 million” initially announced due to a yuan-dollar mix-up.
