After its record-breaking worldwide opening the previous frame, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" gave up considerable boxoffice altitude on the foreign circuit during the weekend but still remained a dominant No. 1 with $82.5 million lured from 15,850 screens in 64 territories.
Although the weekend take dropped 65% from its smashing $236 million overseas debut, the "Prince" frame catapulted Warner Bros. past the $1 billion international gross mark for 2009, the ninth consecutive year the studio has surpassed that benchmark.
Fox was the first studio this year to top $1 billion internationally, doing so early this month. Paramount passed the benchmark a week and a half ago, and Sony hopes to do so by early next month.
"Prince's" overseas cume is $404 million and its global boxoffice total is $625.2 million, making the sixth outing in the multibillion-dollar Warners franchise the 39th biggest-grossing title in history after just 12 days of release.
