It looks like Jason Bourne has done it again. For the sixth week in a row, The Bourne Ultimatum has topped the weekend box office charts overseas. The film took in $13 million in 48 markets. The film has made a total of $204 million outside the U.S.
The Simpsons Movie and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, coming in second and third, made roughly the same as The Bourne Ultimatum combined. The Simpsons family managed to take in an additional $6 million playing on 2,000 screens. That brings its international cume to $332 million.
Not fairing as well was the Judd Apatow comedy Superbad, which landed in fourth place with only a $5.1 million take. The film seems to be a hard sell outside of the States due to cultural differences. The same thing happened to Apatow's other summer comedy Knocked Up, which proved to be a tricky sell in the international marketplace. Both films have made less than half of their stateside earnings.
