German thriller "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" strives high with $11.3 million to secure the top position on weekend box office overseas ended September 24, 2006.

Though has to go down to the second place, with this fixed data "Pirates" therefore has altogether grossed $625.3 million internationally so far, thus can now officially refer itself to be the fourth-biggest overseas movie ever right behind "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone."
Coming to number three on the list is Oliver Stone's 9/11 drama of "World Trade Center" after scoring $6.2 million from eight markets for a total $8.2 million followed by Disney/Pixar's "Cars" with a weekend haul of $5.5 million from 24 countries to officially become one of seven movies to pass the $200 million line this year. Rounding up the top five is last-week second runner-up "Little Man" which is able to add another $4.9 million it has got from 31 markets into its pocket.
