Foreign Accumulations

Animation's recent box office performances in overseas venues:

... Pixar’s Brave has accumulated $179.2 million overseas so far thanks in part to a $14.4 million weekend playing in 46 territories. The $408.3 million global cume makes Brave the 11th consecutive Pixar title to exceed the $400-million gross benchmark worldwide. ...

Ted pushed its international gross total to $138.4 million ... Ice Age: Continental Drift bagged $10.1 million on the weekend (647.3 million foreign total.) ...

ParaNorman, Laika Entertainment’s 3D stop motion animation follow-up to Caroline, drew $2 million on the weekend at 940 sites ... Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted, currently in its 11th round of overseas playdates, grossed $5.7 million on the weekend at 2,226 locations in 42 territories. Overseas cume for the Paramount release stands at $352.3 million.

The Ice Age franchise is losing a bit of steam in the U.S. of A, having fallen out of the Top Ten (#11) with just over $150 million in its tote bag. (The previous two installments fell just shy of $200 million.) On the international front, however, it's racking up BIG numbers.
