Internationally, Cats has made $46 million so far, bringing its box office earnings out to $73.5 million. But for a big-budget movie such as Cats, this is a real bummer. In comparison, Tom Hooper’s last musical 2012’s Les Misérables made $441 million worldwide on a lower budget of $61 million. $148 million of those numbers were from the domestic box office after 14 weeks in theaters. And while 2017’s The Greatest Showman started off with a low $8.8 million domestic opening, it caught on with audiences with $174 million domestic haul after 17 weeks and made a total of $434 million globally.
