In staggered release patterns typical of the early fall season, a batch of dissimilar entries topped the boxoffice charts over the weekend in scattered countries throughout the world. The Aardman Animations-DreamWorks Animation team-up (via United International Pictures release) on Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit conquered the U.K. in a preview kickoff; Miramax's The Brothers Grimm hit the top in France and Germany; Sony's The Exorcism of Emily Rose was No. 1 in Italy; Buena Vista International's Flightplan ruled Mexico, Taiwan and Argentina; UIP's The 40-Year-Old Virgin commanded Australia; and Sony's Stealth made it to the peak in Japan. Local-language films also played a part in the diffused overseas boxoffice results. Spain's Torrente 3: El Protector held the No. 1 position for a second week; Brazil's The Two Children of Francisco captained the home market for the eighth week in a row; and Korea's The Most Beautiful Week in My Life led the local chart in its opening round.
