Current global box office king The Passion Of The Christ held onto the top international position last weekend as its international cumulative passed the $100m mark.
The film launched well in several territories including France and Spain - where it claimed the top spot having amassed 525,000 admissions. With a total gross of $101.7m as of Sunday The Passion is expected to receive another boost over the Easter weekend.
Opening in 27 new markets, Warner Bros' Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed claimed second place. School holidays are showing their powerful influence on the chart - which sees Brother Bear in third; Dr Seuss' The Cat In The Hat, (which also had a spate of new territory launches including France, Australia and the UK), landing in sixth; and P.J. Hogan's Peter Pan leaping 69% to tenth having added Italy, Germany, Austria, Denmark and Mexico to its territory count.
South Korean romantic comedy My Little Bride, directed by Kim Ho-Jun, saw a massive local launch for Korea Pictures. Despite opening in just one territory the film, which stars Kim Rae-Won, Moon Geun-Young and Kim Bo-Gyeong, ranked 14th in the international chart. Korea Pictures, which launches its own sales arm at Cannes next month, also handles international sales on the film.
French title Les Choristes, which is playing three territories, having launched in French-speaking Switzerland last weekend through Vega Distribution, is the only non-US title to place higher.
Right behind My Little Bride was French title Agents Secrets, starring Vincent Cassel and Monica Bellucci, which launched in France (TFM Distribution), Belgium (Elysee) and Switzerland (Ascot Elite). International sales are handled by TF1 International.
