The journals of movie-making tell us:

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies continued to wage war on the international box office with $52.5M in its 4th frame. Showing at 13,900 dates in 65 markets, the Orcs, Elves and Dwarves have now amassed $502.1M. ... Exodus: Gods And Kings grossed $31.57M from 51 markets — besting last frame’s $30.9M performance. That’s largely down to six new markets which included Russia. ...

Night At The Museum, Secret Of The Tomb, picked up 26M from 6,680 screens in 56 markets in its 3rd history lesson. That’s a healthily small holiday drop from last week’s $31.2M. ... Penguins Of Madagascar spied their way to another $23.1M this market, in yet another example of how extended release patterns benefit these DreamWorks Animation titles. ... Big Hero 6 opened in Taiwan this weekend where it posted $1.9M, the second highest all-time debut weekend for an animated release and biggest ever for a Disney Animation studio title. ...
