The Green Wood Overseas

It didn't achieve the Top Spot stateside, but Rusell Crowe and company did quite nicely in foreign lands.

"Robin Hood" conquered the foreign theatrical circuit, grossing $74 million from 6,944 screens in 56 markets ... making it Universal's second biggest international opening weekend ever ...

The other top entries:

... Marvel Studios' "Iron Man 2" is second on the weekend, grossing $31 million in its third weekend of foreign play, raising its offshore gross total to date to $245 million. ...

Third on the weekend was Disney's "Alice in Wonderland," which registered an 11th weekend tally of $10.7 million from 3,861 locations in 55 markets, with Japan, Brazil, Spain and Chile driving the boxoffice action. ... "Alice" now ranks as the seventh biggest international boxoffice hit ever released. With its worldwide gross of $980.5 million, "Alice" ranks as the sixth biggest boxoffice success of all time ...

In the meantime, How to Train Your Dragon is grossing as much in foreign lands as it is domestically. Over two hundred and seven million dollars in both venues.

Of course, if other countries had ever heard of Marvel comics characters, results might be different... ;)
One hit wasn't as export-friendly, which is one of the pitfalls of watching "worldwide grosses".
