Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon” from Apple, Paramount and Imperative Entertainment, had a big opening with $21 million in 63 offshore markets and No. 1s in 24 of those, including France, Germany, Australia, Spain, Netherlands and Switzerland.
The global bow, factoring in its strong domestic opening, was $44 million. Deadline says that’s “great for a period movie with a long running time and at a moment when talent could not promote it due to the actors strike.”
