Black Swan is proving to not only be a surprise hit domestically, but also a major draw overseas as well: the Darren Aronofsky-directed ballet drama inched ahead of chart regulars The Green Hornet and Tangled to take the top spot at the foreign box office over the weekend. French comedy Rien a Declarer (Nothing to Declare) was once again a strong presence, while The King's Speech reached a few milestones on its already-impressive run. Black Swan earned $19.4 million from 34 territories for a foreign total of $72.6 million. It opened in third place in France and Mexico with $4.7 million and $1.3 million, respectively, and also had strong holdover performances in Germany ($2 million), the United Kingdom ($1.7 million) and Russia ($1.7 million). Its worldwide (domestic plus foreign) total now rests north of $172 million, and with openings in Italy, Spain and a handful of other countries next weekend it should be able to reach $200 million in the near future. »
