This includes a first place opening in South Korea where it earned $1.96 million on 334 screens over the weekend and $2.30 million in total, but this is not a particularly strong start.

  • Alien vs. Predator: Requiem added $12.54 million on 3263 screens in 33 markets for a total of $35.44 million. The film debuted in first place in Mexico with $1.66 million on 503 screens but could do no better than fourth during its debut in France with $2.93 million on 426. Meanwhile in Germany, the film fell more than 70% during its second weekend down to fifth place with $1.33 million on 561 screens for a total of $6.53 million.
  • Ironiya sudby. Prodolzhenie, a.k.a., the Irony of Fate climbed two spots to eighth with $9.15 million on 913 screens in 5 markets for a total of $35.10 million. Most of this has come from Russia, but weekend numbers for that market are unknown at the moment.
  • Keinohrhasen, which actually means No Ear Hare (I was bound to get one right sooner or later) remained the top draw in Germany adding $5.86 million on 495 screens over the weekend for a total of $21.52 million. Adding in a couple of smaller markets the film made $6.45 million on 565 screens in 3 markets for a total of $23.74 million.
  • During just its second weekend on the charts, P.S. I Love You climbed into 10th place with $5.99 million on 982 screens in 8 markets for an early total of $11.85 million. Its big gains this week were mostly thanks to the film's debut in the U.K., where it opened in second place with $3.54 million on 365 screens over the weekend and $5.48 million in total. On the other hand, the film only managed fourth place in Brazil with $757,000 on 157 screens over the weekend and $1.17 million in total and fifth place in South Korea with $866,000 on 249 screens over the weekend and $1.54 million in total.

The film has yet to debut in Australia, Italy, Mexico, and Japan, among other markets, and it is headed for $100 million internationally

  • Hitman added $2.66 million on 1096 screens in 7 markets for a total of $52.19 million, which is already more than it earned domestically and it looks to be headed for $100 million worldwide.

  • The Darjeeling Limited returned to the charts in 25th place with $1.75 million on 352 screens in 11 markets for a total of $6.45 million.

  • Taare Zameen Par landed in 30th place with $1.31 million on 323 screens in 11 markets for total of $10.39 million which is enough to consider the Indian film a success.
