Animation's Foreign Box Office

Alvin and the Chipmunks is #1! In Singapore!

It hasn't opened in other major overseas venues yet, that happens next week. But other animated titles are doing quite well, thank you.

The Golden Compass is apparently more sprightly overseas than here. It took in $29 million in its last foreign go-round.

Enchanted earned $16 million while Bee Movie picked up $20 million on foreign shores. Per Variety:

"Bee" added $3 million from its French debut and $2 million in Germany as its early foreign take hit $58 million. The Jerry Seinfeld toon has so far outperformed 2006's "Over the Hedge," which wound up with $180 million overseas.

Beowulf has hit $100 million overseas, while Homer and the rest of his Yellow Family has earned $342.4 million offshore. Not at all shabby.
