‘Titans’ Knocks ‘Alice’ Out of No. 1 Foreign Box Office Spot

And it joins rare company as just the 3rd film of 2010 to top the offshore circuit

“Clash of the Titans” became just the third film in 2010 to claim the No. 1 overseas box-office spot, knocking off “Alice in Wonderland” with $44.2 million in its debut weekend.

Opening in 15 markets on 4,240 screens, Warner Bros. Greek mythology remake eclipsed $34.2 million for last week’s winner “Alice,” which itself took down “Avatar” and stayed on top for a month.

By this time last year, nine films had won the foreign circuit.

DreamWorks’ “How to Train Your Dragon” took second with $38.5 million overseas.

"Titans" was on top in each market it played over the Easter weekend, with $7.8 million in the U.K.; $8.6 million in Spain; $6.8 million in Korea; and $5.9 million in Australia. The film opens in France and Germany this week.

Coming in at No. 4 was "Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang," which generated $10.3 million from 2,500 sites in 12 markets for an overseas cume of $17.2 million. The Jennifer Aniston vehicle "The Bounty Hunter" came in fifth with $9.3 million from 2,170 screens in 41 markets.

For the first time since it opened in December, "Avatar" finished out of the top five with $4.6 million in 37 markets.
