The Adventures of Tintin is doing great in Europe.
from the Box Office Mojo:
A full two months ahead of its U.S. opening, The Adventures of Tintin debuted across much of Europe and easily took the top spot at the foreign box office this weekend. Tintin wasn't the only movie impressing in its overseas opening: Bollywood movie RA One set a new weekend record in India, while Puss in Boots had a monster debut in Russia.
Steven Spielberg's Tintin opened to $56.1 million in 19 territories, though over half of that came from France and the United Kingdom. In France, where the Tintin comic books are essential reading for children, the movie earned a whopping $21.9 million through its first five days. That's the top opening ever for a non-sequel in France. Its $10.4 million debut in the U.K. wasn't as astonishing, though it's still a very strong start there. It also impressed in author Herge's native Belgium, where it earned $2.2 million.
Puss in Boots snatched up $17.2 million from just three markets, though most of that was from an enormous $15.1 million debut in Russia. Distributor Paramount Pictures International is reporting that it's a record for an original animated movie, though it's debatable if a prequel/spin-off technically qualifies as "original."
