Director Peter Farrelly’s Oscar-winning Green Book has crossed $200 million mark in worldwide ticket sales, an impressive feat for a dramedy that originally struggled at the box office.
The Participant Media and DreamWorks’ movie has earned $77.3 million in North America (via Universal) and an impressive $126.9 million overseas, including an early total of nearly $27 million in China, for a global cume of $204.2 million through Wednesday.
Green Book is enjoying a major bump from its Oscar wins, including for best picture, around the world. It debuted to a better-than-expected $17.1 million in China on March 1, while enjoying strong holds in other markets.
And in North America, the film grossed $4.7 million from 2,641 cinemas over the March 1-3 frame — its 16th weekend in release — days after the 91st Academy Awards on Feb. 24.
