X-Men: First Class grossed $64 million overseas this weekend, a little more than it achieved domestically this weekend.  If it hits $168 million in North America (as the ShowBuzzDaily Domestic Final model shows), it could be a $370-400 million picture worldwide.
The Hangover Part II is up to $152 million overseas through this weekend.  If Hangover finishes at $263 million domestic, then the worldwide gross could be in the $550 million range when all is said and done.

Kung Fu Panda 2 is up to $125 million overseas.  If it ends its domestic run with $165 million, Panda 2 could challenge the $400 million worldwide mark.
Finally, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has hit a staggering $600 million overseas.  Its worldwide haul will be at least $900 million.

The regular international chart and rankings will be available late Monday or early Tuesday.
