Your Foreign B.O.

And the box office rolls on in foreign lands.

... [F]oreign theatrical circuit experienced a listless weekend, ... Journey 2: The Mysterious Island [held] to No. 1 status for the second consecutive weekend... No. 3 was Fox’s reissue in 3D of 1999’s Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, which grossed $10 million, lifting its offshore cume to $37.1 million.

... Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol propelled its foreign gross total to $461.9 million ... Fox’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked [has a cume of] $197.9 million ...

Global box office for The Adventures of Tintin comes to $371,840,071 (80% overseas.) Worldwide b.o. for Puss in Boots is now $522,476,000 of which 71.5% is from beyond our shores.

Over the past decade, foreign box office has grown like topsy. I can remember when a 50% total from abroad was considered utterly fabulous. Now 65% or 70% isn't unusual.
