"Shrek the Third" finally ends the three-week reign of "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End" on the international box office for the weekend running June 15-17, 2007.

After reigning for three weeks, time has come now for the Pirates to retreat and leaves the throne for the green ogre to claim.

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.

Finished on number three is Warner Bros. Pictures "Ocean's Thirteen" which makes its way to collect a hefty $26.3 million from about 5,000 screens in 38 markets in its second turn on the chart. 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.

Blockbuster hit "Spider-Man 3" pops up next to round out the top five for the weekend with $3.1 million drawn from 4,300 screens in 77 territories. Pic's overseas total now stands at $868.2 million, putting it at the twelfth rank on the all-time worldwide list.
