?The Happening? dominates overseas box office
« on: June 16, 2008, 08:51:04 PM »

M. Night Shyamalan?s new mystery thriller ?The Happening? topped the international box office this weekend with an estimated $32 million in ticket sales from 88 territories, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Marvel?s ?The Incredible Hulk? opened in only 38 markets but came in second with an impressive $31 million. If you add these figures to the domestic results, the picture looks a little different.

The worldwide total for ?Hulk? is currently estimated at $85.5 million, while ?The Happening? scored $62.5 million

?Sex and the City? has been dominating the overseas box office for almost two weeks, but the New Line Cinema chick flick slipped to No. 3 this weekend with $23.3 million. ?Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? finished with a weekend gross of $18.5 million.

Other foreign results: ?Kung Fu Panda? pulled in $14 million, while ?The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian? earned $11.2 million.
