As it enters its third weekend of release, Disney’s The Little Mermaid is delivering bittersweet results at the box office. The live-action remake of the classic 1989 cartoon passed a significant milestone domestically but is continuing to struggle for breath in overseas markets. After 13 days in theaters worldwide, The Little Mermaid has grossed $201 million stateside, and another $140 million overseas, for a running global haul of $342 million. If all goes well, the movie will pass the $400 million mark over the weekend.
Not bad numbers, considering all the drama with the film’s release in Asia!
