The U.S. will see Alien: Covenant arrive this coming Friday, but the film’s overseas roll-out has already begun, and the results are pretty impressive. Alien: Covenant nabbed $42 million in 34 markets, out of which it hit No. 1 in 19, including South Korea and the UK.

Overall, it was the No. 2 studio movie at the international box office (behind behemoth Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2).

Per Deadline, Korea led the offshore box office with $7.2M, followed by the UK ($6.4M), France ($4.5M), Australia ($3.1M), and Mexico ($2.5M). All were No. 1 bows except Mexico. Other key No. 1’s were Spain ($1.9M), Hong Kong ($1.8M), and Italy ($1.3M). The film’s 157 IMAX screens garnered $2.1M in 28 markets. In the UK eight of the Top 10 runs were in IMAX.

Alien: Covenant‘s global IMAX expansion includes 32 additional territories, the U.S. among them. Overall, it opens in 52 overseas markets in the coming week, including Germany, Russia, and Sweden. China factors in beginning on June 16th.
