Critters clip ‘Four’

When Fox claimed an international box office victory over the weekend for its superhero movie “Fantastic Four,” the chest thumping was premature. The film was actually edged out by UIP’s “Madagascar,” meaning the animal toon movie topped all competition – including UIP’s “War of the Worlds” – for the second week in a row, continuing to corral family biz in an action-heavy market. (Buena Vista Intl.’s “Herbie: Fully Loaded” and Warner Bros.’ “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” remain in limited release overseas.) A Monday morning reversal of fortune hasn’t happened internationally since Buena Vista Intl.’s surprise Vin Diesel breakout “The Pacifier” proved to have edged out UIP’s political thriller “The Interpreter,” back in April.
