Grossing $100 million at the North American box office isn’t what it used to be, but still, when a film is so controversial that some people thought it would never reach that milestone, it’s worth noting when it finally does. And so, let the record show that Noah inched across the $100 million line yesterday, on its 48th day of release. As of last Sunday, the film had earned another $239 million overseas, which gives the film a worldwide total of $339 million so far.
Noah crosses the $100 million line in North America (whew!)
