Clash of the Titans finished in first place overseas, opening to $45 million at 4,270 locations in 15 territories. This included first place showings in the United Kingdom ($8.6 million), Spain ($8.5 million), South Korea ($6.8 million) and Australia ($5.8 million). According to Warner Bros., 3D accounted for approximately 54 percent of Clash's overseas opening. Clash's $45 million tops 300's take through its first two weekends ($25.2 million), though 300 was slower to enter large markets like the U.K., Spain and Australia (300 ultimately closed with $245.5 million overseas). Clash opens in France, Germany and Russia this weekend, followed by Italy, Mexico and Japan next weekend.
How to Train Your Dragon added 16 new territories for a total of 45, and its weekend tally was subsequently up 32 percent to $40.3 million. After three weekends in theaters (two in a substantial number of territories), Dragon has grossed $106.4 million overseas. In comparison, Monsters Vs. Aliens had only made $46.9 million through the same point, ultimately ending with $183.2 million.
By far the highest-grossing 2010 release overseas, Alice in Wonderland was off 35 percent in its fifth weekend, banking $33.6 million on 7,640 screens in 51 markets. 3D sales represented $28.1 million (85 percent) of its weekend take. Overall, Alice has grossed $437.3 million overseas (75 percent of which in 3D), and it is on its way to passing The Lion King sometime this week to become the fourth highest-grossing Disney movie ever overseas, behind the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels and Finding Nemo.
In its second weekend in release, Nanny McPhee 2 (or Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, as it's known overseas) came in fourth place, grossing $9.2 million at 2,002 locations in 11 territories. Its total now sits at $16.3 million, with around two-thirds of that coming from the U.K. ($10.9 million). Nanny McPhee 2 is scheduled for domestic release on Aug. 20.
The Bounty Hunter rounded out the top five, up 24 percent to $7.7 million on 1,987 screens in 41 territories (it had 29 last week). After three weekends, the Jennifer Aniston-Gerard Butler romantic comedy/action hybrid has scored $28.3 million overseas.
