Overseas RoundUp: Top Ten Lists from the Major Global Markets - May 10-12, 2013 on May 15, 2013

STID.jpgIron Man 3 has been bulldozing its way to a $1 billion global total. Last weekend's overseas numbers saw the superhero film triumph in multiple overseas markets, but competition from the scaled roll-out of Star Trek Into Darkness slowed down Iron Man's hot streak.

The $31.7 million that Star Trek Into Darkness grossed over the weekend came in large part due to a splendid performance in the United Kingdom. The sci-fi sequel had a harder time finding its footing in Mexico, where it underwhelmed in second place. Paramount's release strategy will unfold as the summer wears on, with Star Trek Into Darkness expanding on a global scale through August.
