- Wanted opened with $4.35 million on 898 screens in 16 markets. This includes reports of records being broken in parts of India, but we don't have full box office numbers from that market. However, it was weaker elsewhere.
- Ice Age - Dawn of the Dinosaurs fell out of the top ten this past weekend with $4.33 million on 2211 screens in 28 markets for a total of $677.38 million internationally and $872.41 million worldwide.

- A second India film, Dil Bole Hadippa, opened in 12th place with $4.09 million on 974 screens in 17 markets. Unlike Wanted, this movie was only good in its native market, but was stronger elsewhere, so it too should be profitable.
- The Taking Of Pelham 1 2 3 added $3.77 million on 1864 screens in 38 markets for a total of $62.38 million. The film was average in Italy with $1.30 million on 316 screens, which was enough for third place.

It started its expansion into Australia earning fifth place with $531,000 on 176 screens over the weekend for a total of $678,000. With openings in Italy and Japan still ahead of it, it should be able to reach $100 million internationally, while it already has more than $200 million worldwide.
- The Hangover fell to 15th place with $2.93 million on 1836 screens in 37 markets for a total of $182.63 million and a total of $456.50 million worldwide.

- Gamer fell to 17th place with $2.68 million on 1413 screens in 15 markets for a total of $9.46 million. The film was aided by a third place, $1.04 million opening on 346 screens in the U.K., but that's weaker than its opening here.
- Bride At Any Cost opened in third place in Russia with $2.12 million on 588 screens while it placed 18th overall with $2.29 million on 647 screens in 2 markets.

The film opened in France last week but struggled in eighth place with just $1.13 million on 274 screens, and that was for the full week. It placed seventh in the U.K. with $630,000 on 357 screens over the weekend and $2.35 million after two.
- Aeja rose to first place in South Korea and 23rd place internationally with $1.96 million on 366 screens over the weekend and $5.37 million after two.

- G.I.Joe earned $1.83 million on 2045 screens in 48 markets for a total of $148.00 million internationally. It will get to $150 million internationally, but this it likely the last time it will appear on this list.
- Neuilly Sa Mère! remained flat adding $1.78 million on 484 screens in 3 markets for a total of $18.26 million.
- Whatever Works popped back onto the chart with $1.72 million on 463 screens in 7 markets for a total of $10.24 million. It Italy it opened in second place with $1.45 million on 329 screens, which is more than it made during any single weekend here.
- Aliens in the Attic earned $1.58 million on 1506 screens in 19 markets for a total of $25.83 million. This is more than it made domestically, and with a few more major markets to go, it could make enough to show a small profit by its initial push into the home market.
