The latest Tom Cruise science-fiction action adventure opened overseas this week before it is shown in North America. The film opened in 28 international markets and grossed $20 million overseas.
Variety reported that the film had strong competition from Angelina Jolie's Maleficent. The Disney film opened to $100 million overseas and the film was shown in 47 foreign markets.
Edge of Tomorrow opened in Indonesia with a $2 million gross and in the United Kingdom with a $3.1 million revenue. The action film, which stars Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt, was shown on 4,940 screens.
The Hollywood Reporter added that the film has yet to open in China or Japan but it made its strong showing in Asia. Tomorrow will open in 36 markets next week including the United States, Mexico and Russia.
Tomorrow was filmed for a $178 million budget. The film will need to do well both domestically and internationally. It is currently on track for a $30 million debut in North America.
Warner Bros. released the film early in some international markets to get ahead of the World Cup, which starts on June 12.
