Wreck-It-Ralph enters the worldwide chart with a modest $12 million overseas to date, but that will grow to match and probably exceed the $171 million we expect for the film domestically.  The film could end up with $350-375 million worldwide ultimately.

Skyfall, which opens Friday in North America, is already up to $287 million overseas in two weeks.  Skyfall will be added to the chart next week.

Hotel Transylvania continues to do well overseas, up another $24 million since last week (now $115 million overseas).
