Your International Box Office

World totals for animation.

Weekend Foreign Box Office -- (Global Cumes)

How to Train Your Dragon 2 -- $18,200,000 -- ($574,516,962)

Guardians of the Galaxy -- $20,700,000 -- ($489,484,857)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles -- $15,500,000 -- ($238,809,806)

Dawn of Apes -- $8,500,000 -- ($556,960,970)

Transformers: Extinct -- $5,400,000 -- ($1,065,124,603)

Other animated titles still in release:

* The Lego Movie has grand total of $468,049,270 worldwide. What makes the title kind of unique is that over 55% of its earnings come from the domestic run. (Usually a majority of the cash is from overseas.)

* Mr. Peabody and Sherman ended up at $268,759,499. That made it a write-off for DreamWorks; 58% of the take came from abroad.

* The weakly-performing Planes 2 has earned a grand total of $94,378,000; like the higher-flying Lego Movie the majority of its earnings come from the domestic release.

(You will note that, for a movie labeled a "disappointment", Dragons 2 has made a poop-load of money.)

Add On: Another semi-animated title has passed a milestone:

... Maleficent, also made news as it passed up X-Men: Days of Future Past ($744.7 million) to become the No. 2 title of the year so far at the global box office. The live-action fairy tale, starring Angelina Jolie, finished the weekend with $747.6 million in total worldwide ticket sales. ...

One more Linda Woolverton blockbuster.
