300 and Ghost Rider Overseas Numbers

The Hollywood Reporter says that 300 was #1 overseas as well:

Thanks to smashing bows in five Asian territories plus exceptionally strong holdover-market performances, “300” decisively dominated international boxoffice for the weekend, battling its way to an estimated $15.6 million from about 1,300 screens in 13 markets.

The Warner Bros. International release took the No. 1 spot in each market it played. The fresh territories included South Korea (an estimated $6.3 million in five days from 353 screens), Turkey ($1.5 million from 115 sites), Thailand ($917,000 from 120 spots), Hong Kong ($730,000 from 33 sites for an astonishing $22,121 per-screen average) and India ($582,000 from 161 sites).

The biggest of the holdover markets for director Zack Snyder’s rendition of Frank Miller’s graphic novel about the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. is Greece, where the film earned an estimated $2.5 million at 140 screens in its second weekend for a per-screen average of $17,857. The second-weekend tally is exceeded only by “300’s” record-setting opening weekend in the market. Upcoming this weekend are “300” openings in such major territories as the U.K., France, Italy, Spain and Mexico.

The trade adds that Ghost Rider earned another $7.3 million internationally in fourth place for an overseas gross of $87.5 million. The Nicolas Cage starrer has reached $197.7 million worldwide.
