‘Titanic’ hits $1.2 bil o’seas B.O. mark

Ship still steaming in three territories

A week after reaching the $600 million pinnacle domestically, “Titanic” etched another milestone by doubling that amount overseas: Still active in three territories, Jim Cameron’s epic hit the $1.2 billion mark last Sunday in its 38th week of international release, 20th Century Fox Intl. reported.

Last weekend, the super-liner grossed $862,000 with contributions from Japan (where the cume is an astounding $186.9 million), Brazil ($69.2 million) and India ($10 million).

The precise foreign total is $1,202,033,141, bringing the worldwide cume to $1.8 billion. Fox says the Leonardo DiCaprio-Kate Winslet starrer now ranks as the top-grossing title in history in all 58 territories abroad.

Guessing game

When the film was in its often-troubled production, Fox Intl. president Jim Gianopulos estimated it would gross north of $200 million overseas. But all bets were off after he and his Fox colleagues first saw a print.

“It was apparent it would break every model, every prediction, so we stopped guessing,” he said this week.

Now the guessing game is predicting how many copies it will sell on video overseas as it starts hitting stores at the end of this month.

Gianopulos, who oversees Fox Home Entertainment Intl., won’t volunteer a likely figure but says, “The pre-order business and enthusiasm from retailers and consumers is unlike anything we have ever seen.”
