Overseas B.O. -- Year-end Grosses

Where animation is still a driver.

... Fox's top title by far was the computer-animation Ice Age Continental Drift, which scored an amazing $718.1 million on foreign box office. ... Disney/Marvel’s The Avengers tallied a huge $892.4 million in overseas earnings. ...

Paramount's top earner this time was DreamWorks’ Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, which collected $525.5 million offshore. ... DreamWorks' Rise of the Guardians collected $11.6 million in its seventh round overseas and lifted its foreign gross to $165.2 million.

Life of Pi continues strongly on the foreign circuit, drawing $39.2 million ..., raising director Ang Lee’s film to a cume of $220 million ...

Some current worldwide totals:

World Grosses
Wreck-It Ralph -- $275,855,000
Rise of the Guardians -- $255,430,000
Life of Pi -- $303,838,000
Hotel Transylvnia -- $311,023,000

The Ang Lee movie is outpacing Guardians overseas, while staying slightly behind it domestically. I expect that Rise of the Guardians will end up in Hotel Transylvania territory, a bit north of $300 million.
