And the Foreign Horse Race

Much to many citizens' amazement, The Smurfs take the #1 spot yet again.

Those lovable blue creatures narrowly maintained their hold on the No. 1 weekend box office perch on the foreign theatrical circuit as The Smurfs grossed $14.9 at 7,610 overseas locations in 73 markets.

This elevates the total foreign gross accumulated so far by the 3D Sony Animation co-production to $321 million ...

And the latest DreamWorks Animation release continues to gather up cash.

... Kung Fu Panda 2 has grossed $491 million since it opened on the foreign circuit on May 26. Weekend take was $2.6 million from 1,183 venues


(But no doubt still a disappointment as far as the American media is concerned.)

Meantime, Pixar Disney’s Cars 2 has raked in $358 million and $547 million globally.
