    'Cars' puts brakes on 'Pirates' overseas run - The Hollywood Reporter 9/12/06

    'Cars' puts brakes on 'Pirates' overseas run

    The end of the summer season saw a major decline in the overseas boxoffice as kids began the trek back to school and vacation periods came to an end. Without consequential product in store and no surprises on the horizon, slow weekends are anticipated until about mid-October, when the major studios get ready to unleash their year-end holiday hopefuls.

    Favorable weather in parts of Europe and the Pope's visit to Germany were also cited as factors that held back moviegoing this past weekend. The bid by "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" to dominate the overseas market for a 10th successive weekend ended at nine as Disney stablemate "Cars" outraced the Johnny Depp starrer to the weekend finish line.

    Thanks largely to market-ruling openings in Germany and Austria, the CG-animated "Cars" drove to an $8 million weekend from 3,699 locations in 32 countries, lifting its international gross to $182.4 million. "Dead Man's Chest," meanwhile, bagged $6.9 million in its ninth session from 4,176 screens in 43 territories to register an eye-catching overseas cume of $592 million.
