Out-of-this-world action movie "John Carter" is the planet's biggest movie for a second consecutive week.
The film, starring Taylor Kitsch as a Civil War hero transported to Mars, grossed over $40 million in 54 markets outside the U.S., where the film has been savaged by critics.
"John Carter" has now earned a total of $126 million internationally - outside of America - since its release earlier this month.
Dr. Seuss' "The Lorax" jumps up to number two on the international box office list and Reese Witherspoon's comedy "This Means War" is third on the countdown.
Comedy "21 Jump Street," which debuted at number one in America on Sunday, has also started out well around the world, opening at number one in Australia and number two in the U.K., according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Meanwhile, "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" has passed the $300 million gross mark worldwide.
