Foreign Super Heroes

... are performing remarkably like domestic super heroes.
A muscular opening in Russia plus extraordinarily strong holdovers in key overseas markets propelled Marvel’s The Avengers to a commanding No. 1 weekend perch on the foreign theatrical circuit with $151.5 million grossed in 52 territories, hoisting the film’s 12-day offshore box office total to $441.5 million. ...

Visual effects movies consume more and more box office dollars. The old favorite Battleship has now gobbled up $200.1 million in foreign lands, and Dr. Seuss' The Lorax continues to ruck along:
... Lorax is just $7.6 million shy of the $100-million overseas gross mark after registering $2.7 million – of which $1.3 million came from a Korea opening at 249 venues ...
Which give DSL a worldwide total of $301.4 million.
