Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 1 continues to dominate the international marketplace with a gross that is nearly 85 million US dollars (£54,432,079) ahead of the second place film.
An amazing 10-day sprint to nearly 600 million US dollars (£384,254,317) in global revenue puts the movie in a class by itself, and with 50 territories on board, there seems to be no end in sight for the magic box office spell of Potter.
Second place in the international arena belongs to Rapunzel in just seven territories and a weekend debut of 16.5 million US dollars (£10,567,140).
With a worldwide total approaching 90 million US dollars (£57,646,302), there is no doubt that the family-friendly film will continue to do well with international audiences as it expands into more territories in the coming weeks.
As it is in North America, so goes the international marketplace as Unstoppable proves that Denzel Washington's appeal is truly universal.
With a solid 7.4 million US dollars (£4,739,807) in its third weekend, the film continues to impress in 40 territories and a worldwide total that is heading towards 100 million US dollars (£64,057,847).
Finally, notable action outside of the Top 10 includes The Social Network, which marches toward the 200 million US dollar (£128,124,930) mark worldwide as it makes new friends in 45 territories in its ninth weekend of release.
