Adding 34 markets, Clash of the Titans racked up $55.3 million from 10,850 screens in 57 markets. The mythological action picture posted $7.4 million starts in both China and Mexico, comparing favorably to 300, which did not play in China and which opened to only $2.6 million in Mexico. Clash also launched in Italy to $4.5 million, or slightly under 300's $4.6 million opening in 2007. In total, Clash has generated $189.7 million and should be able to pass 300's $245.5 million international total by next week at the latest, bolstered in part by its upcoming debut in Japan.
In its sixth weekend, Alice in Wonderland's international box office was up a whopping 86 percent to an estimated $34 million. This is due mostly to monster openings in Japan ($14 million) and Spain ($10.3 million), though it continued to play in 51 other markets. When Alice's $503.5 million international take is added to its $324.4 from the domestic box office, it now ranks as the 22nd highest-grossing movie ever worldwide.
As it had no major new international openings, How to Train Your Dragon was off 37 percent to $16.5 million from 6,323 locations in 54 territories. With $177.8 million already in the bank, though, Dragons is only a few days away from passing Monsters Vs. Aliens's $183.2 million foreign total. Date Night came in fourth place this weekend, grossing $7.96 million from 2,797 screens in 41 markets. It entered seven new markets, including Russia and Germany, but none were remarkable. After two weekends, its international total sits at $17.7 million.
While it finished in first place domestically this weekend, Kick-Ass continued to struggle internationally, grossing a meager $2.6 million from four territories for a total of $17.3 million through its third weekend. Meanwhile, Avatar added to its record-breaking total, bagging $1.2 million from 731 screens in 26 markets. While it probably won't break the coveted $2 billion mark without some extra push, that doesn't take away from the phenomenal feat of its $1.97 billion total.
