Overseas, “The Dark World” has amassed $352.2 million through Wednesday, with $152 million Stateside, for a global cume of $504.2 million.

The “Thor” sequel’s worldwide tally already has eclipsed the original’s $449 million global cume earned in 2011.

So far, the top overseas market is China, which has contributed $46.1 million, followed by Russia, with $33.6  million, and the U.K., Brazil and Mexico, all of which have amassed more than $20 million each locally.

There is still room for the film to grow, though “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” launches worldwide in major territories starting today. “Catching Fire” is expected to gross more than $300 million globally this weekend, »
