Tabloids rev up overseas box office

While “War of the Worlds” was the latest event film to test overseas waters this past weekend, Fox’s “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” showed off some impressive international legs. Tabloid reports haven’t been a problem for either: Off-screen buzz generated by Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had pundits wondering whether “War of the Worlds” could face international backlash (it hasn’t), while rumors of a real-life romance between “Smith” stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie seem to have helped boost that movie, according to Fox brass, particularly in Latin America, Asian and Australia.
