20th Century Fox's summer blockbuster X-Men has broken the $100m barrier in international territories, bringing its worldwide cumulative gross to over $250m. Bryan Singer's film based on the Marvel Comics characters opened last weekend in Spain and Japan, bringing its international total to $106.1m. It has been on release for 12 weeks since its international debut in Australia on July 13.
The film took $2.035m from 302 screens in Spain and $3.6m from 267 screens in Japan over last weekend (Oct 5-Oct 8).
X-Men is Fox International's second film to cross the $100m barrier this year after The Beach. Robert Zemeckis' What Lies Beneath is opening throughout the world now and Fox also has high hopes for comedy Bedazzled starring Brendan Fraser and Robert Redford's golfing drama The Legend Of Bagger Vance starring Will Smith and Matt Damon.
