Foreign Derby

The box office news from overseas:

Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, which registered a No. 1 offshore gross of $55.8 million ... Puss In Boots, which set records for an animation title in Russia ($15 million from 700 locations) and in the Ukraine ($1.7 million from 110 sites). ...

Tomorrow's trades and media will reflect "Oooh. Puss in Boots ... another DWA disappointment."

But at the end of its box office run, the feature will be up at 400 to 500 million dollars, give or take. The big question mark, which will be answered in a couple of weeks, is how it sustains through the end of the year.

As for Tintin, I expected it would do well in Europe. The boy reporter is an icon there.
