As for animated features, here are the stats:

Hotel Transylvania -- $2.8 million foreign gross -- $173.8 million foreign cume -- Worldwide Total: $319,502,512

Rise of the Guardians -- $2.5 million -- $191.7 million foreign total -- Worldwide Cume: $290.1 million

Wreck-It Ralph -- $156.9 million foreign total -- Worldwide total: $337.7 million

The Mojo highlights that Life of Pi and Rise of the Guardians now run neck and neck domestically. Where Pi has really stepped out ahead of Guardians is in the foreign arena. There it owns a $181 million advantage.
