`Panda` climbs to top of international Box Office

Los Angeles: After three weeks in release, ‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ has finally kicked and chopped its way to the top of the international Box Office charts with a weekend total of USD 56.5 million in 45 territories. The kid-friendly animated film has benefited from the booming 3-D overseas marketplace and its global appeal is evident, having earned over USD 330 million worldwide.

Big news as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ becomes Disney`s biggest international release ever with USD 695.9 million in revenue after a month in theatres. A fourth weekend total of USD 41.1 million in 46 territories lands the 3-D pirate epic in second place and propels it to a massive worldwide total of USD 907.4 million.

Debuting internationally in fifth place is the Abrams-Spielberg sci-fi piece ‘Super 8,’ which managed a USD 6.7 million weekend tally in just nine territories. The film, which has earned over USD 50 million globally, should move up the international chart in the coming weeks as it expands into more foreign theatres.
