MUMBAI: Summit International‘s New Moon held on to the overseas crown in what will almost certainly be its last weekend in charge ahead of the global launch of Avatar, adding an estimated $23.2m from 8,735 sites in 66 territories.

The film‘s international performance so far stands at $360.1m. Interestingly, New Moon‘s global tally has reached $627.5m.

Sony Pictures Releasing International‘s smash 2012 ranked second overall after adding a further $20m from 8,540 in 77 markets, elevating the running total to a formidable $556m.

The film‘s highlights included: $2.1m in Japan from 609 for $30.7m after four weekends; $1.6m in South Korea from 266 for $32m after five; $1.5m in France from 526 for $42.1m after five; $1.5m in Germany from 637 for $35m after five; and $1.4m in Brazil from 532 for $21.6m after five.

All results mentioned here except Japan are after five weekends.

The Princess And The Frog, the number one release in North America this weekend, released in ten day-and-date territories on a very promising $7m from 1,486 screens.

Up crossed $400m as a number one hold in the second weekend in Japan and a further $5.6m from 663 screens pushed the tally there to $16m and the international running total to $401.4m. This puts Up as the third biggest Pixar release and only the fifth title this calendar year to cross $400m overseas.
