The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has held on to the top spot at international cinemas for another weekend with 24.5 million dollars in 48 territories and a cumulative global total of 163.4 million.

In the number two spot and boasting 51 territories, the highest of any film in the international top 20, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part 1 impressively crossed the 800 million dollar mark and earned 22 million in its fifth weekend of release.

Tron: Legacy made its international debut in third place with just over 20 million dollars in 26 territories as it crossed the 70 million mark worldwide.

Outside of the top 10, Due Date in its seventh weekend in the international marketplace proves that the comedy of Zach Galifianakis is funny pretty much anywhere in the world. The road film continues to play in 40 territories on its way to a 200 million dollar global total.

Animation proved to be hot property, with Disney's Tangled in fourth place, while Will Ferrell's Megamind was in fifth.
