The film stayed in the US top ten, at number nine and brought in $4.3 million dollars last week. That brings the total USA gross for the film up to $124 million dollars.
Internationally, last week, the film grossed an additional $12 million. That brings the total gross up to $232.5 million, making it the highest grossing musical of all time*, beating Chicago by $100 million and counting.
*It would appear that, as pointed out by Phil and Stephen UK (thanks Guys) that there is some way to go before anyone can claim that Mamma Mia! is the highest grossing movie musical of all time, so it’s curious that BroadwayWorld would choose to use those words in its report and a bit unfortunate that I found it and quoted it!.
