Manages to rack up a superb tally of $46 million from 3,693 screens in 36 markets, "Shrek the Third" triumphantly goes past "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End" to take over the top position on weekend international box office ended June 17, 2007 after the seafaring tale proves to fare lower with $32.6 million it has garnered from 17,500 screens in 103 territories.

Meanwhile, the fourth spot goes to newly released "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" following its great effort to pull $25.4 million from 3,292 screens in 32 markets.
