Clash Of The Titans heads into a strong second weekend as the favourite to retain its overseas crown despite a wide launch for Fox’s action comedy Date Night (pictured).
The action adventure stands at $65.6m after the first wave of debuts and arrives this weekend in France, Germany, Russia, Holland and Belgium.
Fox International gives a big day-and-date push for Date Night starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, which launches in more than three dozen territories.
Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand, Argentina, and Hong Kong are expected to be among the highlights.
Latest figures put Avatar on $1.963bn, and Crazy Heart on $5.9m, My Name Is Khan on $33.5m, Tooth Fairy on $44.3m, and Hot Summer Days on $20.1m.
Alice In Wonderland has reached a mighty $440.7m and with no new territories this weekend Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International chiefs are looking to gross a further $20m by the end of Sunday.
Universal/UPI’s family sequel Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang on $24.3m flies into Belgium and French-speaking Switzerland. On the romantic comedy front, Leap Year arrives in Italy and South Korea and It’s Complicated debuts in Taiwan and stands at $102.6m.
There should be a great result for the action adventure Kick-Ass in Australia and New Zealand, which launched in the UK last weekend and has grossed $8.2m to date. Lionsgate sold the bulk of territories.
Paramount/PPI’s horror thriller Case 39 on $13.8m opens in Brazil and three other Latin American territories. Psychological thriller Shelter with Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers opens in the UK while Martin Scorsese’s mystery Shutter Island has taken $95.7m and opens in Japan.
