‘The Martian’ Crosses $500 Million Globally

Posted on November 30, 2015 and filed under The Martian

November has been quite a slow month for Wiig-news (the Zoolander 2 trailer will be added soon!), but here is an update on the box office of The Martian. The Fox tentpole has blasted off in China, opening to $50.1 million. That’s far ahead of fellow space epics Gravity and Interstellar. Globally, The Martian has rocketed past the $500 million mark thanks to its late China run, finishing Sunday with an estimated $545.1 million in worldwide ticket sales. To boot, the film has become Ridley Scott’s biggest movie internationally, surpassing 2012’s Prometheus ($278 million).

Starring Matt Damon, The Martian has grossed $218.6 million domestically and $326.1 million overseas. Based on Andy Weir’s book, The Martian has a built-in China storyline, with NASA enlisting the Chinese to help rescue an astronaut stranded on Mars. Kristen Wiig played the head of media relations of NASA, Annie Montrose, alongside Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, and many more.
