Warner crosses $1 bil o’seas

'Superman,' 'Poseidon' lead charge for studio

Warner Bros. Intl. has crossed the $1 billion mark in foreign grosses for the sixth year in a row, despite less-than-stellar performances by its summer tentpoles.

Studio announced Thursday it had hit the milestone, led by “Superman Returns” ($191 million), “Poseidon” ($121 million), “The Lake House” ($63 million) and “V For Vendetta” ($62 million).

The division also saw $72 million this year from 2005 release “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” and $76 million in France from comedy sequel “Les Bronzes Amis Pour La Vie,” the fourth biggest film in terms of admissions for that territory.

Warner also said it’s expecting strong results for the rest of the year from “The Departed,” “Flags of Our Fathers,” “The Prestige,” “Happy Feet” and “Blood Diamond.”
