10,000 B.c. Hunts Down Global Number One Spot
Caveman adventure movie 10,000 B.C. has clubbed its way to debut at the top of the international box office chart with takings of $25.3 million (GBP12.65 million). A day after claiming the top spot in America on its first weekend on release, the pre-historic film, directed by Roland Emmerich, has narrowly beaten competition from record-breaking French movie Bienvenue Chez Les Ch'tis to become the most popular film outside the U.S. Bienvenue Chez Lez Ch'tis, which recently broke French box office records by scoring $39.7 million (GBP19.85 million) in its first week on release, is at two with $25.2 million (GBP12.6 million). After three weeks at number one, Jumper falls to three with $12.2 million (GBP6.1 million), while Vantage Point drops two places to four with $10.5 million (GBP5.25 million).
