‘The Smurfs 2’ expanded from 43 to 65 markets and won the international weekend box office by the tightest of margins ahead of last weekend’s No. 1, ‘Pacific Rim’. The animated comedy grossed a further $34.6m over the three days, taking its early international tally to a so-so $110m after two weekends in play.
Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ played in 61 markets but 3,320 less screens than ‘The Smurfs 2’ and finished the weekend on a strong $33m. China lead the way with $21.8m and the sci-fi adventure has now grossed $76.5m in the territory since last weekend’s impressive opening. The film will cross the $250m mark internationally during the early part of this week.
‘Elysium’ provided Sony with some encouragement, grossing $10.9m from 2,050 screens in just 17 markets. Sony will be looking for a strong international run after Neill Blomkamp’s ‘District 9’ follow up underperformed on its North American launch. It arrives in much of Europe next weekend.fluoxetine 40 mg capsulefluoxetine for social anxietyprozac liquid formfluoxetine 20 mg cap
