>The Hunger Games continues its rise up the worldwide box office chart with overseas revenue to date now $157 million to go along with an estimated final domestic haul of $380 million.  There is probably another $150-200 million to come from overseas territories, which would put it on track for $700 million worldwide. 

New to the chart this week are Titanic 3D and American Reunion, both currently in the middle of the worldwide chart.  (Click “read more” to see the updated worldwide chart.Titanic 3D has an estimated domestic final gross of $63 million, and its overseas total to date of $36 million might grow to $110 million, giving it a worldwide total just below War Horse and just outside the top 10 films released the past four months.

American Reunion has a slightly higher estimated final domestic gross of $73 million.  While its current overseas tally of $19 million looks small, the overseas total will probably also grow to around $110 million, as the film expands around the globe and given the strong international track record for the comedy series (unusual for U.S. comedies to export so well).  American Pie earned $235 million worldwide ($102 million domestic and $133 million overseas); American Pie 2 made $287 million worldwide ($145 million domestic and $142 million overseas); and American Wedding grossed $231 million worldwide ($104 million domestic and $127 million overseas).
