MUMBAI: Going by the grand opening of Titanic 3D in China, the film took on the role of No. 1 box office champ in the foreign theatrical circuit. It grossed $88.2 million from 9,889 venues in 69 overseas territories covering more than 100 countries.
In fact, the film tally of $58 million drawn from 3,500 sites in China accounted for the lion‘s share of the total weekend intake thus giving its distributor 20th Century Fox‘s its biggest opening gross in the market ever.


According to 20th Century Fox , the film‘s six-day China bow was 32 per cent more than the total market gross of the original Titanic in China in 1998 of $44 million.
 
The epic love story with the background of the Titanic, now in its second round of foreign release also chalked up notable numbers in Russia ($2.75 million from 972 sites).

The foreign gross total for Titanic 3D stands at $146.4 million over two rounds, which, when combined with the original‘s overseas run, puts the offshore total tally at $1.4 billion. Worldwide, Titanic has pushed past the $2 billion mark.
 
Opening at just about half the total of Titanic 3D was Universal‘s Battleship based on a Hasbro naval combat game about sea warfare with an alien armada. Debut weekend take from 26 offshore markets came to $58 million collected from 4,950 situations. The film ranks No. 2 on the weekend.
 
Also opening on the foreign circuit on the weekend was Lionsgate‘s The Cabin In The Woods. Playing at some 800 situations in four markets, the horror film grossed an estimated $3.4 million with a No. 3 bow in the UK providing $2.5 million from 412 screens.
