Wonder what did this so popular in South Korea, about 13% of the OS total in one weekend...


Screendaily Ben-Hur raced to an estimated $11.3m from its 47 markets for $54.9m overseas, with the majority of the weekend’s take coming from a superb $7m bow in South Korea.

Holdover-wise, Paramount-MGM’s remake took $907k for $2.4m after two weeks in France, while Russia added $696k for $3.7m and the UK took $556k for $2.5m. It arrives in Italy on Sept 29.
