"Casino Royale" still stays firmly on the top slot of weekend box office overseas for December 1-3, 2006.
Remained golden overseas, "Casino Royale" for the third time in a row gloriously dominates the international market after drawing in a tremendous income of $44.7 million at 6,770 theaters in 54 markets, Variety has reported.
Thanks to rave response in European countries, especially the U.K where it is able to cash in $10.4 million on 992 screens, the picture takes in more than the combined grosses of the next four Hollywood flicks namely "Flushed Away", "The Departed", "Borat", and "Happy Feet."
With this fantastic outcome, "Casino" thereby adds up its foreign total to $196.5 million and a worldwide tally of 312.4 million. Looking on the increasing number plus upcoming screenings in Australia and Mexico, it seems the movie's goal to break the $431 million-record set by "Die Another Day" is not far to be realized in the next couple weeks.
