"Casino Royale" has replaced "Borat" to seat on top slot of the weekend international box office of November 17-19, 2006.

Though failed to rule over the domestic box office chart after its opening-day triumph in the U.K., "Casino Royale" turns out to still have something to boast of. Successfully collecting $43.4 million from 31 markets overseas, this latest Bond pic has wonderfully topped the foreign box office for the weekend ended Sunday, November 19, 2006, making its worldwide gross pass a $80-million mark for sure in its debut.

Besides pulling $25.5 million at 988 U.K theaters, the 21st installment of the superspy franchise also amazingly made its way to score $3.3 million in 427 screens in India, the biggest-ever opening for a non-local film in the country. With this great start, the flick sure has big potential to surpass the $271 million mark set by its predecessor "Die Another Day" four years ago.

Meanwhile, last-week champ "Borat" has to go down one notch after only managed to draw in $13.9 million it gained from 25 countries. Its overseas total therefore now stands at $63.6 million and, being combined with its $90.5-million total in North America, so makes a total worldwide income of $154.1 million which is over ten times more than its production cost.
