  • Casino Royale fell out of the top five for the first time during its two-month run just missing $400 million over the weekend. The film did add $5.95 million on 3034 screens in 51 markets for a running total of $399.62 million and will have crossed the milestone by Monday. More than a quarter of that total, $106.73 million, has come from the U.K. where it is now the second highest grossing film of all time behind just Titanic which earned $119 million.
  • Babel saw strong growth this weekend thanks to openings in the U.K. and Brazil. In the former it made $1.17 million on just 130 screens placing seventh in the process. While in Brazil it made $363,000 on 58 screens. Overall the film added $5.02 million on 886 screens for a running tally of $46.13 million.

  • The Holiday just managed to hand onto a spot in the top ten with $4.36 million on 2494 screens in 42 markets for a total of $109.89 million. However, despite deep declines of nearly 50% this weekend, the studio should be more than happy with its total.
  • The Departed saw amazing growth this weekend nearly returning to the top ten with $4.21 million on 1385 screens in 33 markets for a total of $135.64 million. This growth was almost entirely due to the film's first place, $2.37 million opening on 361 screens in Japan as it made almost as much in that market as it made it total last weekend.
  • Happy Feet is rapidly declining falling 33% to 12th place with $4.17 million on 3162 screens on 52 screens for a total of $157.84 million. The film doesn't have a major opening till March when it makes its Japanese debut. Before then it is virtually guaranteed to drop off the charts.
  • Mapado 2 opened in its native South Korea scoring first place with $3.58 million on 385 screens over the weekend and $4.78 million in total.
  • The Prestige held on better than most films do in Spain down just 32% to $1.13 million on 312 screens for a total of $3.12 million. The film was also helped out by its second place, $878,000 opening on 224 screens in Russia. Overall the film added $3.33 million on 1096 screens and now has $45.87 million internationally.
  • The Blood Diamond opened in first place in a quartet of markets, but the largest was Hong Kong where it took in $353,000 on 32 screens. In New Zealand the film made $183,000 on 43 screens, $182,000 on 51 in South Africa and $121,000 on 22 in Malaysia.

  • Marie Antoinette shot up into 16th place with $3.04 million on 571 screens thanks to the film's very, very close second place debut in Japan. There the film opened with $2.32 million on 273 screens, just $50,000 behind The Departed.
  • Flushed Away is coasting on holdovers at the moment and that explains why it fell six places to 17th with $2.68 million on 2710 screens in 57 markets for a total of $104.45 million.
  • Jacquou Le Croquant, a.k.a. Jacquou The Croquant, opened in first place in its native France with $2.59 million on 576 screens.
  • Arthur And The Invisibles earned $2.43 million on 1388 screens for a total of $57.40 million internationally. The film still has a number of major markets left to open in, and if it can perform well it can still be seen as a success, at least internationally.
  • Guru grew by 9% this weekend, which is not only a good sign for its long-term potential, but a very difficult thing to say five times fast. Guru grew, Guru grew, Guru grew, Guru grew, Guru grew. ... Moving on. The film added $2.23 million on 745 screens over the weekend for a total of $9.85 million after two.
  • 200 Pounds of Beauty remained in second place in South Korea with $2.15 million on 262 screens over the weekend for a total of $37.09 million after more than a month of release.

  • Herb remained potent in South Korea down just 13% to $1.90 million on 275 screens over the weekend and $6.17 million in total.
  • John Tucker Must Die returned to the charts thanks to a fourth place opening in Germany. The film made $1.26 million on 402 screen in that market and $1.88 million on 500 screens internationally for a total of $19.98 million.
  • The Chinese film, Luo Ye Gui Gen, a.k.a Getting Home, opened with 1.67 million on 483 screens for a 25th place on the international charts.
  • The Illusionist returned to the charts in 26th place with $1.66 million on 561 screens for a total of $27.67 million on the international scene. $1.03 million was earned on just 180 screens in France given the film the second best per screen average in the top twenty there.

  • The Legend of King Naresuan I - Pegu's Hostage started its run with $1.59 million on 352 screens in its native Thailand, which was strong enough for 28th place internationally.

  • A second Chinese film, Sun Yat Fai Lok, Happy Birthday, charted this weekend with $1.52 million on 420 screens capturing 30th place in the process.
  • Smokin' Aces fell out of the top 30 this weekend, but its $1.12 million on 339 screens during its second weekend in the U.K. for a total of $4.17 million is still a good result for the modestly budgeted film.
  • An Inconvenient Truth may have missed the top ten during its expansion in Japan this past weekend, but $250,000 on 22 screens was still a very good result. Overall the film now has $18.22 million internationally and is closing in on its domestic total.
