Emily Browning in SUCKER PUNCHDespite the distinct opinion splits down the line about the movie Sucker Punch, though it didn’t do too hot domestically here in the U.S., it’s the no. 1 movie in the worldwide last weekend, pulling in $11.5M.

Just Go With It
pulled in $10.9M and Battle: Los Angeles, $10.7M.

I’ve always found it fascinating that movies that perform in a mediocre fashion domestically seems to have stronger legs in the international scene.

That’s good for the studios when something pans out here, that a movie can find new life internationally.

There’s more at Box Office Mojo.

I think it’s because these movies speak the same simple language. Sucker Punch = hot girls + guns, Battle LA = marines + guns, The Expendables = action heroes + guns, Just Go With It = Adam Sandler (well, not everyone like Aniston but everybody love Sandler).
