Fifty Shades of Grey has earned $338.4 million from global box offices, becoming Universal Studios’ highest-grossing R-rated film internationally, and is fast approaching a combined domestic and international haul of $500 million.
The film has also been No. 1 for the third consecutive week in a row and is the best-selling film of the year so far.
Its $338.4 million overseas earnings now outrank those of Universal’s previous best-performing R-rated international hit, Ted, which earned $332.4 million. Domestic earnings of $147.8 million mean the film has earned $486 million so far.
The largest foreign market for the film has been the U.K., where it has earned $46.9 million.
