'Rio' stays perched atop foreign box office chart

The Associated Press, Wednesday, April 27, 2011, 5:23pm (PDT)

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- "Rio" topped the international box office chart for the third consecutive weekend with $32.1 million in 41 territories and a worldwide total of $239.3 million, but "Fast Five" is coming on quickly with a tally of $12.6 million in just three territories in advance of its turbocharged U.S. debut this weekend.

As the most action-packed and visually stunning film of the "Fast" franchise, look for Vin Diesel and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to dominate the worldwide market in the weeks to come.

Moving up to third place overseas is "Red Riding Hood," which increased to 29 territories and a weekend international gross of $8 million, giving this re-boot of the classic fairy tale worldwide appeal to the tune of $70.3 million.
