Fox Powers Up for Global Roll-Out of 'X2' Movie



The Twentieth Century Fox film studio is planning the largest ever global release for a Hollywood movie when thriller "X2: X-Men United" debuts in 93 markets around the world on May 2, a Fox spokeswoman said on Friday.
She said the studio hopes to place the film in as many as 3,700 theaters in the United States and up to 3,800 theaters in other countries.

If "X2" can get to 3,700 U.S. venues, it would become the widest domestic debut ever, surpassing last year's major hits, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" and "Spider-Man," which each debuted on over 3,600 screens.

When "Spider-Man" premiered last May, it earned $114.8 million at domestic box offices, which stands as the record for the most revenues earned by a movie in a three-day debut. Twentieth Century Fox is a division of Fox Entertainment Group Inc., which is owned by News Corp. Ltd.
