It did not have the same titanic opening overseas that Clash of the Titans did, but Wrath of the Titans galloped to an impressive victory over its opposition — including The Hunger Games — nonetheless, collecting $78 million in 60 countries. That was more than twice what it earned domestically and augurs well for the future of the franchise. In 2010, Clash collected $332 million overseas, which was also twice its North American earnings. Today’s (Monday) Hollywood Reporter observed that 18 percent of the film’s foreign earnings came from Russia, where it earned $14 million. Meanwhile, The Hunger Games is experiencing a disappointing reception overseas, dropping 41 percent in its second weekend to $34.8 million after opening with $59.3 million last weekend. Its foreign tally now comes to $113.9 million, compared with $251 million domestically.
