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.

- 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.

- 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.
