ROTK hits $876.5 million worldwide!

#6 worldwide.

I think since it has not opened in Japan yet and it will make around $60 million at least.

It will hit 1 billion worldwide

4 golden globes and 11 oscar noms might help it reach 1 billion. I know I'm going to see it again.

i cant believe it hasnt opened in Japan yet! for some reason itd make my day if this hit 1 bil.. i think as a fan the box office is an indicator of how well the movie is recieved, and i think the filmmakers and actors on this project deserve a mark of that nature.. only the second film in history..

when does it open in japan? (funny how they get their PS2s and gamecubes a year before us.. )

It opens in Japan on February 14th. And, it just opened this weekend in Italy and Russia. From those three alone, it should easily add another $100 million. Add these to the remaining box office in the US and other countries where it is already playing, and it has a strong chance of reaching $1 billion.

In the end, the decision comes from a certain Mr. George Washington.

Japan is the last place to be shown widely it seems so I guess Mount Doom is in Japan so that why Peter is bringing the One Ring to Japan to be lost forever

actually it did open in Australia already.

so far it has made $29,993,394 since 12/26/2003.

Left to open:
China- no date set
Japan-02/14/2004
Dominican Republic-no date set
Egypt-02/11/2004
India-01/30/2004


Two Towers totals:
China-$2,842,648
Japan-$65,021,313
Dominican Republic-$200,000
Egypt-$129,736
India-$954,354
Total from remaining based on TT-$68,289,131

just using these totals you would get ROTK up to 945 million and that does not take into account anymore money from other countries. It might be close , but it should make it to 1 billion.

Glad I caught it in January when I was back in the States. I have another business trip next week and maybe I'll just sneak in another viewing before it opens in Japan.

If you have chance to be in Japan ,see it at Virgin Cinemas in Roppongi Hills.It's the best cinema in Japan right now!And is always packed, so book your seats with the theater once you arrive in Tokyo.

Box Office Mojo is reporting $14.6 million for the opening weekend in Japan, but I don't know if that is confirmed, or just an estimate.

The worldwide total now sits at $974 million. The $1 billion mark is now only days away.
