‘Code’ explodes

“The Da Vinci Code” is now venturing into “Titanic” territory. Foreign gross has hit $479.1 million, representing 71% of the worldwide total of $678 million. Those numbers place “Code” on the verge of passing “Forrest Gump” as the top-grossing drama after James Cameron’s blockbuster. Sony reported Monday that “Code” finished its fifth weekend with $14.2 million at 7,800 playdates overseas, declining 35% from the previous frame. The figure — $1 million off Sunday’s estimate — left Fox’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” as the weekend’s winner with $14.6 million at 6,271 engagements and ended the religious thriller’s foreign box office win streak at four weekends.
