While Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull clearly took the international crown this weekend, representing a whopping 65% of the top 40 revenue, a couple of Cannes competition films fared well in their home territories, each passing the $1m mark.

Cannes Grand Jury Prize winner Gomorrah was the highest non-US film in the chart this weekend, taking $2.9m from 425 screens in Italy for a $6,868 screen average. The Italian mafia tale, directed by Matteo Garrone, remained at number seven and fell by just 8% in its second weekend. It is released in the territory through 01 Distribuzione and has generated $8.2m to date.

French film A Christmas Tale, for which star Catherine Deneuve won a Special Jury Prize at Cannes this year, opened in France and Switzerland with a $1.1m take from just 104 screens, backed by positive reviews from the festival. The tragic-comedy, distributed in France through Bac Films and Switzerland through JMH, entered at number 12 and boasted a $10,394 screen average, the second highest of the weekend.

Four additional French titles accounted for a mere 1.6% of the top 40 revenue (indicative of how Indiana Jones cannibalised the market this weekend), all of which were holdovers that failed to pass the $1m mark. Studio Canal's Deux Jours A Tuer fell 18% in its fourth weekend with a $908,192 take from 482 screens for a $7.2m tally to date. And Pathe's Welcome To The Sticks continues its marathon run with a $662,602 take from 513 screens in Belgium, France, Switzerland and the UK. The film maintained its steady drop at 35% and has taken a mammoth $202.5m after 13 weeks on release.

Europa's thriller Taken was down a steeper 56% in its 13th weekend with a $486,042 take from 294 screens for a $27.4m cumulative total while TF1's comedy Ca$h fell 55% with a $477,606 take for a $10.2m total to date.

Four Japanese films dotted the chart led by holdover title Partners: The Movie (Aibou) which was at number eight with a $2.1m weekend gross. The film, based on the detective television drama, fell just 8% in its fourth weekend. It played across 303 screens for a $6,870 screen average and has grossed nearly $31m to date. It is distributed by Toei.

Toho's Hidden Fortress: The Last Princess took $736,998 in its third weekend in Japan, falling 29%. The remake of Akira Kurosawa's The Hidden Fortress played on 315 screens for a $2,340 screen average. It has generated nearly $6m since its release.

New Japanese entry After School, directed by Kenji Uchida, opened with a $681,766 take in its home territory. The mystery played on just 72 screens for a $9,469 screen average. It is released locally through Klockworx.

And remake My Darling Of The Mountains, starring Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, came in at number 32 with a $512,213 take from 158 screens. The period piece was at number nine on the Japanese weekend chart.

New entry from Russia, Practical Joke (Rozygrysh), made the top 30 with a $579,872 take in its home country. The teen drama, released through Caroprokat, came in fourth in Russia and played on 253 screens for a $2,292 screen average. It is directed by Andrei Kudinenko.

Elsewhere, the studios are back in their comfort zone as the top six films, all Hollywood offerings, accounted for 87% of the top 40 revenue. While Paramount's $146.4m Indiana Jones opening led the pack, the second instalment of The Chronicles Of Narnia fell 21% with an $18.3m take. Prince Caspian has generated $51.3m from just 13 territories as Disney staggers its worldwide release.

The top 40 international films generated $225.5m across 41,367 screens for the period from May 23-25.
