Oz the Great and Powerful joins the worldwide chart just outside the top 10.  With $70 million overseas to date, the foreign total should approach $300 million, making $500 million worldwide an achievable goal (behind Life of Pi in 5th place).

The other films were relatively quiet overseas this past week.  The next best was A Good Day to Die Hard with only $16 million overseas since last week, followed by Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (+$15 million) and Beautiful Creatures (+$13 million).

Finally starting to slow down, Life of Pi is just under an impressive $600 million worldwide.
