Shrek Remains King Overseas

Meanwhile, Shrek the Third ruled overseas, raking in an impressive $48.6 million in 45 countries. In general the overseas box office performed far better than the domestic one and seemed especially stunning when compared with results for the same week a year ago when the total came to a third of last weekend's overseas figures. However, the Weinsteins' hope of offsetting its domestic losses for Grindhouse by separately releasing the two movies that made up the original "double feature" hit an apparent dead end, as an expanded version of Death Proof, Quentin Tarantino's half of the movie, failed to attract a substantial audience.

The top ten films for the weekend, according to studio estimates compiled by Media by Numbers:
1. Evan Almighty, $32.1 million; 2. 1408, $20.175 million; 3. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, $20.15 million; 4. Ocean's Thirteen, $11.3 million; 5. Knocked Up, $10.6 million; 6. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, $7.2 million; 7. Surf's Up, $6.7 million; 8. Shrek the Third, $5.8 million; 9. Nancy Drew, $4.5 million; 10. A Mighty Heart, $4 million.
