The Foreign Horse Race

... offers few surprises. Superheroes rule, and Tim Burton's latest has to settle for No. 2:

[Dark Shadows], the eighth collaboration of Johnny Depp and director Tim Burton, drew 93% of what 2005’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (the fourth Depp-Burton combination) grossed in the same markets at “the same point in release” ...

Sony’s animation title The Pirates! Band of Misfits played at 3,328 venues in 50 markets and drew $2.2 million. Offshore cume stands at $74.5 million. ... DreamWorks Animation/Paramount’s Puss in Boots, $405.5 million ...
