‘Dracula,’ ‘Beast’ hot at int’l B.O.

“Bram Stoker’s Dracula” continued on a tear overseas last week while “Beauty and the Beast”– which soared to $ 190 million — seized the mantle of all-time top grosser in Italy from “Johnny Stecchino.”

In another thriving sesh, “Under Siege” stirred the Spanish wickets, “A River Runs Through It” had a handsome debut in France, “Stalingrad” captured German audiences and “A Few Good Men” showed terrific stamina.

In addition, “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” advanced to $ 160 million overseas, “The Bodyguard” fast-forwarded to $ 150 million and “Sister Act” to $ 85 million.

Italo exhibs were delighted with “Dracula,” which garnered an excellent $ 1. 47 million on 52 screens.

Coppola’s extravaganza also bowed big in Hong Kong ($ 343,000 in five days at 11 theaters), Switzerland ($ 244,000 in seven days at 10), Greece ($ 277,300 at 10) and Thailand.

In Italy, the unstoppable “Beauty and the Beast” climbed to 40 billion lira ( $ 28.5 million), outdistancing “Johnny Stecchino’s” 39 billion lira. “Body of Evidence” averaged a paltry $ 961 on 24 screens.

In France, Robert Redford’s visit generated lotsa publicity for his “A River Runs Through It,” which averaged $ 24,000 on 13 screens in Paris.

In Spain, “Under Siege” collared $ 1.48 million on 102 screens and is certain to set a new benchmark for Steven Seagal.

British biz stayed perky at $ 8.5 million, enlivened by the arrival of Bill Duke’s gritty “Deep Cover.”

The German top 10’s receipts tallied a healthy $ 14.5 million. “Stalingrad,” World War II saga of the 6th (German) Army’s humiliating defeat in 1943, launched with $ 1.7 million on 236 prints.
