So far, no U.S. distributor has picked up the movie after it was dropped by Amazon Studios.

Woody Allen's A Rainy Day in New York is nearing $11 million in foreign ticket sales even while it isn't being shown in the U.S.

Through Nov. 4, the movie's foreign gross rested at $10.8 million, according to Box Office Mojo. The highest-earning territory is France, where Allen is particularly popular, with $4.3 million. That's followed by $1.7 million in Spain, $1.1 million in Poland and $1.1 million in Russia.

The film began rolling out at the international box office in late September. A patchwork of distributors are handling the comedy-romance across Europe, Latin America and Asia.

So far, A Rainy Day in New York is earning notably less overseas than many of Allen's other films, although his last outing, Wonder Wheel, topped out at $13.7 million internationally. Three have earned $100 million (not adjusted for inflation) or more offshore: Midnight in Paris, Blue Jasmine and Vicky Cristina Barcelona.

So far, no U.S. distributor has picked up A Rainy Day in the New York after Amazon Studios returned domestic rights to Allen earlier this year. 

When the #MeToo movement shook Hollywood, claims that Allen has molested his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was 7 received renewed scrutiny. Amazon shelved Rainy Day and tried to cut ties with the director.

The filmmaker responded by suing for $68 million for breach of contract, his guaranteed minimum payment for his four-picture deal with Amazon.

Actors from Rainy Day have since said they regretted working on it, with Rebecca Hall donating her salary on the film to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund and Timothée Chalamet donating his earnings to RAINN, Time’s Up and the LGBT Center in New York.
