  • Openings in the U.K., Australia, and other markets had Eight Below earning more than triple what it did last weekend while it shot up the charts climbing from 30th to 7th place. Amazingly, the film earned more in Australia finishing third with $787,000 on 254 screens over the weekend and $866,000 with previews. In the U.K. it could only managed 8th place with $617,000 on 397 screens over the weekend and $737,000 in total. Overall the film added $3.40 million on 1483 screens in 23 markets to its still tepid international total of $16.24 million.
  • 16 Blocks also shot up the charts thanks to new openings, but it wasn't as dramatic with the film earning $3.19 million on 1154 screens in 14 markets for an early international total of $9.14 million. Its best opening came in South Korea where the film finished fourth with $827,000 on 123 screens over the weekend and $945,000 in total. It also placed fourth in Germany, but is box office total was a mere $612,000 on 282 screens. In the mean time, in flopped in Russia finishing seventh with just $174,000 on 170 screens over the weekend and $199,000 in total.
  • Failure to Launch is starting to slip down the charts falling to ninth with $2.99 million on 1161 screens in 25 markets for a $28.33 million total so far. The film had one of its best opening over the weekend placing second in Spain with $1.13 million on 222 screens, which gave it the best per screen average in the top twenty there.
  • Detective Conan: Requiem Of The Detectives fell 39% during its second weekend in Japan but remained in first place with $2.78 million on 295 screens for a two-week total of $8.75 million.
  • Una Pelicula De Huevos, or as it is known in English, A Pellicle of Hooves, opened in first place in its native Mexico with $2.69 million on 435 screens over the weekend and $3.01 million in total.
  • My Scary Girl is holding on much better than more films in South Korea do as it slipped just 9% to $2.18 million on 290 screens for a three-week total of $11.18 million.
  • Asterix and the Vikings failed to make an impact when it opened in Holland with just $39,000 on 60 screens over the weekend and $86,000 in total. It did add $1.89 million on 612 screens in France for a two-week total of $5.53 million in its native market.

  • Final Destination 3 nearly cracked $50 million internationally this weekend with $2.03 million on 1040 screens in 16 markets over the weekend for an international total of $49.88 million so far. The film will have topped that mark during the midweek, and still has a few more major markets to open in.
  • La Doublure added another $1.92 million on 719 screens in 3 markets for an international total of $21.37 million. Again, the vast majority of that came from France, where it added $1.76 million on 674 screens over the weekend for a total of $19.09 million in the market.
  • Silent Hill got its international run off to a good start finishing in second place in the U.K. with $1.77 million on 308 screens, which was good enough for 16th place on the international charts. It will be interesting to see if the film will be able to attract an audience despite its video game origins.
  • Basic Instinct 2 fell 43% to $1.65 million on 1763 screens in 38 markets for a total of just $29.47 million internationally. The film has a few smaller openings, but nothing that could compensate for huge declines and equally huge loses in its screen count.
  • The end of Golden Week holidays in Japan saw Crayon Shin-chan Vol. 14 fall 43% to $1.62 million on 289 screens for a two-week total of $4.81 million.
  • She's The Man opened in Malaysia over the weekend, but no box office information was released. Overall the film held on well down just 24% to $1.38 million on 507 screens in 7 markets for a still early international total of $10.27 million. Its best market remains the U.K. where the film remained in fifth place during its third week of release with $659,000 on 298 screens for a total of $6.02 million. The film held on even better in Australia down a mere 10% to $597,000 on 140 screens for a total of $3.11 million. So far in both markets the film has had success similar to what the film had domestically when you take the relative size of the two markets into account, however, they are both showing much longer legs.
  • Lucky Number Slevin opened in Turkey and Holland over the weekend helping the film grow 11% to $1.27 million on 512 screens in 7 markets for a total of $12.47 million on the international scene so far. In Turkey the film placed second with $176,000 on 61 screens while in the Netherlands in had to settle for fourth with $115,000 on 40 screens over the weekend and $152,000 in total. Its best market of the weekend was Spain where it added $562,000 on 227 screens to its three-week total of $2.96 million.
  • American Dreamz did significantly better during its debut in the U.K. than it did here opening in fourth place with $1.23 million on 354 screens. That was the film's first international market but it doesn't have another major release till June when the summer release schedule starts to slow down.
  • Jean-Philippe saw its international take sliced in half to $1.22 million on 568 screens for a three-week total of $8.79 million. Most of that was earned in its native France where it slipped to seventh with $1.13 million on 525 screens for a total of $7.96 million.
  • The same can be said for fellow French film, Les Brigades du Tigre, which fell to 8th place in France with $1.07 million on 522 screens for a $4.09 million total there. Overall it made $1.12 million on 528 screens in 2 markets for a $4.27 million total.
  • Yours, Mine and Ours added just $1.07 million on 884 screens in 16 markets for an international total of $12.76 million with debuts in Germany, France, and other yet to come. Its best market of the weekend was the family friendly Mexico where it made $366,000 on 273 screens for a three-week total of $3.50 million.
  • Firewall had the worst week-to-week drop-off of the charts plummeting 63% to $1.07 million on 714 screens in 35 markets for an international total of $28.65 million. This drop-off was partially mitigated by the loss of over 1000 screens, but it still means Harrison Ford will have to wait for Indiana Jones 4 for his box office comeback.
  • Chekeraccho!, a.k.a. Check It Out, Yo! opened in fourth place in Japan with $1.05 million on 207 screens, which is just above the $5000 per screen average that has historically separated the winners from the losers in the market. It will be interesting to see if that is the case here.
  • Nanny McPhee fell 55% to $1.03 million on 890 screens in 28 markets but has managed $71.59 million internationally, which is more than enough to show a profit.
  • Shaggy Dog climbed back on the charts, barely. The film finished in 28th place with $1.01 million on 659 screens in 10 markets for an international total of $14.60 million. The film was aided by a 32% increase in Australia, which pushed the film into sixth place with $557,000 on 230 screens for a total of $3.69 million while in New Zealand the film debuted in fourth place with $117,000 on 42 screens, $257,000 including previews / midweek numbers.
  • Narnia barely hung onto a spot on the charts with $939,000 on 978 screens in 11 markets for totals of $447.12 million internationally and $738.80 million worldwide at the end of the weekend. That puts the film in 21st place on the all-time worldwide chart, just ahead of The Matrix Reloaded. The film is doing significant business in only one market, Japan, there is finished in fifth place during its eighth week of release with $821,000 on 573 screens for a total of $53.62 million in the market.
  • Take the Lead had no major or even midlevel openings, which caused it to fall to 30th place with $884,000 on 415 screens in 6 markets for a two-week total of $3.51 million. Almost all of that has come from the U.K. where it added $632,000 on 301 screens for a total of $2.75 million.
  • The Sentinel opened day-and-date in a few smaller markets earning $571,000 on 167 screens in four markets including a $112,000, first place debut on 15 screens in Taiwan.
  • Slither got off to a slow start on its international run missing the top ten in France with $236,000 on 144 screens and earning just $41,000 on 19 screens in Belgium, but this is not a strange result as these markets is not known for embracing horror films. It did manage tenth place in Turkey, but only made $35,000 on 46 screens. On the other hand, it finished in second place in Taiwan with $105,000 on 14 screens over the weekend and $138,000 in total.
  • No weekend box office date for Date Movie was released, but the studio did report its total international box office now stands at $26.6 million.
  • Meanwhile, The Hills Have Eyes has made $12.4 million internationally.
