The Croods was the big mover overseas this past week, up $38 million outside North America to $243 million overseas and $416 million worldwide.  The other big gainer outside of home was G.I. Joe: Retaliation (up $23 million overseas to $168 million overseas to date and just under $300 million worldwide).

Slowing down a bit outside of the US and Canada, Oz the Great and Powerful was up $10 million last week to $252 million overseas to date and $484 million worldwide.  42 debuts at #31 on the chart with its estimated $82 million domestic total.  The overseas total is zero currently and won’t change very much given the baseball theme, which will not play well outside of this country.
