As it gets closer to reaching the $100 million mark at the box office worldwide, Mean Girls keeps up its amazing run. The musical, which has received $92.7 million from theatres worldwide, was directed by Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr. The new iteration of the well-liked comedy has brought in $26.3 million from overseas markets, with local theatres accounting for the remaining $66 million of the total box office receipts. The public is still entertained by Cady’s (Angourie Rice) rivalry with Regina George (Reneé Rapp), and the film is doing well at the box office despite a slow overall trend.
Last week, Mean Girls debuted in 10 new overseas markets, earning an additional $2.4 million at the box office in nations like Chile, Israel, and Panama. Nevertheless, Belgium, the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Hungary, and Poland have yet to see the musical on the big screen. Mean Girls hasn’t yet surpassed $100 million at the worldwide box office, but its rumoured $36 million budget will make it lucrative for Paramount Pictures, who wisely chose to release the film in January to avoid fierce competition in the months that follow.
Similar to the plot of the 2004 Mean Girls film starring Rachel McAdams and Lindsay Lohan, Cady Heron is followed in this new movie as she relocates from an African nation to the United States. Cady meets Regina George, the most popular girl in the school, when she starts high school. Although the two are initially friends, their lethal rivalry begins as Cady grows to believe that Regina is untrustworthy. This time, Jeff Richmond and Nell Benjamin’s music are featured in the well-known tale, elevating Cady’s experience through high school to a whole new level.
A New Version of ‘Mean Girls’ for a New Audience
The Broadway musical of the same name, which itself was based on the original film version, served as the inspiration for 2024’s Mean Girls. Screenwriter Tina Fey, who penned the original script for the plot more than two decades ago, has come back to pen the screenplay for the musical hit of the year. Rapp played Regina George on Broadway before appearing in The Sex Lives of College Girls, which gave her a lot of practice with the part and helped her get ready for the big screen. The Plastics have returned, and their top priorities remain power and notoriety.
At the moment, Mean Girls is showing in theatres. Check back often with Collider for updates.
