Audiences Flock To "Rio 2" Overseas

Rio 2” might have been aced out of the top spot at the North American box office this past weekend but it returned the favor overseas.  The animated Fox title nabbed $62.3M over the three day stanza, slipping past “Captain America: Winter Soldier” at $60.6M

All eyes this weekend will be on the 15 markets (including Mexico, U.K. and Australia) that will be opening “Amazing Spider-Man 2”.  The cast has been on a worldwide tour to promote the film and the film is expected to rule the box office in those countries.
