Mockumentary flick "Borat" has replaced "The Devil Wears Prada" to be the highest-grossing movie on weekend international box office of November 3-5, 2006.

It's a double winning for "Borat", really. Already took the top position on weekend domestic box office, the comedic flick wonderfully extends its success internationally as it garnered a surprise opening round of $18.6 million from 17 territories, thereby overthrowing "The Devil Wears Prada" from its no.1 throne on the weekend international box office ended November 5, 2006.

Though had to end its four-consecutive-week rule on the chart, "Prada" still did well in its run for it managed to collect $11.1 million and so, makes its tally stand strong at $151.1 million. Right behind this 20th Century Fox production is Japanese flick "Death Note 2" which successfully draws in an incredible amount of $10.2 million from 346 prints only.

Sony Pictures Animation's "Open Season" comes next on number four after gaining $8.4 million from 43 markets with Russia contributing $1.6 million, Colombia $170,981, and Indonesia $116,106. Rounding out the big five on the list is "The Departed" with a modest result of $7.3 million to make up a total gross of $49.3 million so far.
