Overseas Box Office

No surprise that the final Batman is doing gangbusters, but animation is performing well too ...

... Ice Age: Continental Drift ... drew $58.8 million on the weekend at 13,825 locations in 67 markets. Cume for the fourth title in the Ice Age animation franchise stands at $442.7 million ...

Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, which has been playing overseas since June 6, has grossed an offshore total of $282.5 million ...

Box Office Mojo does a comparison of the big animated features of 2012. Brave, Mad 3, and The Lorax have all gone over the $200 million domestic gross marker, while Ice Age 4 has torn up the track overseas and performed in an okay but not boffo fashion domestically.

To date, Brave has made most of its money in the U.S. and Canada, with around $50 million coming from abroad. ($47 million through the start of last week; as I write, this weekend's box office is nowhere to be found. At least, nowhere to be found by me.)

But assuming the red-headed lass does as well in foreign venues as she's done domestically, the picture should take in somewhere in the vicinity of $400-$600 million.
