"Despicable Me" Marches On

"DM" continues to do well in overseas markets.

... After 16 weeks of overseas playtime, the family-oriented 3D animation title ["Despicable Me"] ... has grossed a total of $198.1 million.

Universal -- which reported its 2010 international box office total exceeded $1 billion on Sunday -- said it expects Despicable to surpass the $200 million offshore gross mark on Monday.

Every large entertainment company has now had at least one sizable animated hit. And several of them have had many more.

This will probably mean that additional animated features will be made.
