'Wanted' Is Wanted By International Audiences

According to media reports, the comic book adaptation took in a solid $33 million in its first week in foreign release, opening day-and-date on 1,922 screens in 22 markets.

Given director Timur Bekmambetov's blockbuster pedigree, "Wanted" had its biggest international opening in Russia, where the James McAvoy/ Angelina Jolie vehicle made $11 million. "Wanted" added an additional $8 million in its United Kingdom opening.

In the United States, of course, "Wanted" finished behind the Pixar adventure "Wall-E," but that robot romance only opened in six foreign markets, on 400 screens in Latin America, making $3.1 million foreign. It will continue its international roll-out in weeks to come.

Second place overseas actually went to a different computer animated feature, "Kung Fu Panda," which did $21.5 million, bringing its foreign total to $98.5 million. Disney's "Prince Caspian" was third at $20.1 million for a total of $161.8 million foreign, followed by the $12.1 million for "The Incredible Hulk" and the $11.8 million for "Get Smart."
