‘Pirates’ undeterred by sequel debuts overseas

Los Angeles: Despite a less than spectacular launch in North America, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ continued its commanding run in international waters this past weekend, topping the foreign Box Office chart with USD 108 million in 50 territories and raising its worldwide total to more than USD 571 million as of Sunday night.

‘The Hangover 2’ broke stateside Box Office records in its debut while simultaneously enjoying great success in the overseas marketplace, landing in second place with nearly USD 58 million in 33 territories and easily crossing the USD 200 million global mark in just a few days.

‘Kung Fu Panda 2’ had a third-place foreign debut of USD 36 million in nine international territories. In China, the movie was a smash in IMAX, opening Saturday in 22 locations and generating over USD 300,000 on that day alone.
