DreamWorks Animation’s Rise of the Guardians grossed $3.9 million at 4,252 venues in 54 markets in its ninth weekend offshore, raising the foreign cume via Paramount to $187.7 million. ..

Guardians has now grossed $98,685,000 stateside, which brings it to a worldwide total of $286,385,000, far below DWA's usual grosses for its features.

DreamWorks Animation's recent batting average has been amazingly high, but even Babe Ruth didn't hit a home run every time he stepped to the plate.
