Many critics thought Battleship was a gamble with a $209 million dollar budget and the failure of John Carter fresh in everyone's minds.
But, the blockbuster proved the naysayers wrong as it opened number one in every country it premiered except France and is now expected to make $300 million dollars in overseas sales alone!
Sure, the action film has a long ways to go before then, but Battleship is off to a rocking good start as its Day One estimate is expected to be $7.4 million!
The film made $1.5 million in the U.K., $1.1. million in Australia, and a whopping $2.8 million in Korea!
That is soooo impressive considering its stiff competition such as Titanic, Hunger Games, American Reunion and Wrath Of The Titans.
Folks in the U.S. still have a month to go before the film opens, though.
