  • Doraemon: Nobita To Midori No Kyojinten opened in first place in Japan with $5.05 million on 344 screens, which was enough for seventh place overall.
  • Step Up 2 The Streets climbed into the top ten with $5.05 million on 811 screens in 13 markets for a still early total of $12.13 million. The film opened in third place in Germany with $2.00 million on 245 screens over the weekend, which is twice what the original opened with back in 2006.

  • Meet the Spartans had one of the weakest week-to-week performance on the charts down 56% while falling from 6th to 14th place.

Overall it added $3.19 million on 702 screens in 9 markets for a total of $275.45 million. $300 million internationally is out of the question now, but it will hit $350 million worldwide soon, which should be enough for the film to show a profit eventually.
  • Rambo also fell hard this week down 55% to $2.86 million on 2090 screens in 36 markets for a total of $55.48 million. The film is now just a week away from hitting $100 million worldwide, which is twice what it cost to make, but that is still the weakest performance in the franchise.

  • Earth slipped a spot to 20th with $2.52 million on 537 screens in 4 markets for a total of $59.16 million. This week Germany was again the film's most lucrative market pulling in $2.36 million on 431 screens for a total of $19.43 million in that market after a month of release.

  • The Bucket List opened in Russia last weekend, but missed the top ten with $321,000 on 92 screens. Overall it made $2.21 million on 1153 screens in 26 markets for a total of $46.77 million.

  • The Game Plan returned to the top 30, barely, with $1.77 million on 422 screens in 6 markets for a total of $27.91 million. The vast majority of the film's weekend haul came from the U.K. where it opened in third place with $1.56 million on 280 screens. The younger target demographic and the football are hurting overseas, but its performance so far is still strong.
Additionally, In Bruges also started its international run last weekend, but it missed the top 30 overall. In fact, it missed the top ten in the U.K. earning $674,000, but that was on just 70 screens giving the film the best per screen average in the market.
