Your Foreign B.O.

Cartoons are doing well.

And the cartoon about a speed-racing snail is doing weller than it is in the U.S. of A.

"Despicable Me 2" was the No. 1 film at the worldwide box office for the third week running, as the minions added another $35.4 million from overseas this weekend.

That ups its international total to $308 million and pushes it past the lifetime international gross of the original, which took in $293 million from abroad in 2010. Combined with its U.S. gross of $276 million, “Despicable Me 2” is now at $587 million worldwide. ...

DreamWorks Animation’s 3D family film “Turbo” brought in a solid $22.6 million from 28 markets for distributor Fox, roughly a quarter of its eventual foreign rollout. ...
