Beowulf topped box office lists in foreign lands the same as it did here at home:
"Beowulf" conquered the overseas box office this weekend, with a solid (but hardly blockbuster) $17 million, followed by "American Gangster," which nabbed an impressive $14 million in fewer playdates.
Meanwhile, Disney-Pixar's "Ratatouille" continued to cook, "The Bourne Ultimatum" is still macho, but "Lions for Lambs" did a fast fade in its sophomore session (falling 61% in its second week in the U.K., for example) ...
Remy continues to under-perform his way to sizable grosses. Whether or not Beowulf turns a profit with its sizable production budget and advertising budget remains to be seen.
I think we can give up hope on The Ten Commandments.
