"Wanted" An International Hit

Beaten by a friendly robot domestically, Wanted can take solace in dominating the foreign marketplace for the weekend ending Sunday, June 29.

According to media reports, the comic book adaptation took in a solid $33 million in its first week in foreign release, opening day-and-date on 1,922 screens in 22 markets.

Given director Timur Bekmambetov's blockbuster pedigree, Wanted had its biggest international opening in Russia, where the James McAvoy/Angelina Jolie vehicle made $11 million. Wanted added an additional $8 million in its United Kingdom opening.
