Robert Pat­tin­son’s Remem­ber Me has been called a down­right box-office flop by some. That isn’t cor­rect. A box-office dis­ap­point­ment, sure, but def­i­nitely not a flop con­sid­er­ing its $16 mil­lion price tag.

Even if Sum­mit Enter­tain­ment spent that same amount — or sev­eral mil­lion more — pro­mot­ing and dis­trib­ut­ing the film, Remem­ber Me will most likely end up in the black after world­wide box-office rentals (not grosses, as exhibitors keep about 50% of the share) and ancil­lary rev­enues are added up.

At the domes­tic box office — United States and Canada — Remem­ber Me has grossed $14.5 mil­lion after 12 days. Day-to-day rev­enues have var­ied widely, with increases and decreases at times reach­ing 20%.

Over­seas, Remem­ber Me has opened in only a hand­ful of major movie mar­kets since March 11. Accord­ing to coun­try fig­ures found at Box Office Mojo, Remem­ber Me has grossed $5.42 mil­lion at the inter­na­tional box office as of March 21. That places its world­wide total at about $20 million.

The three top mar­kets have been Rus­sia with $1.824 mil­lion, Brazil with $1.118m, and Aus­tralia with $916K. Fur­ther down the list are Greece with $316K and Swe­den with $279K.

Remem­ber Me will open in major mar­kets such as Japan, China, the United King­dom, Ger­many, Italy, Spain, South Korea, Mex­ico, and France in the com­ing weeks. Expect rev­enues to soar even if Remem­ber Me doesn’t turn out to be a bona fide success.
