Pixar’s Ratatouille cooks up big box office overseas

Pixar’s Remy the Rat continues to cook up big profits overseas:

Remy’s time has come — at least on the international stage. Disney’s "Ratatouille" is leading the foreign box office for the first time, during the Oct. 5-7 frame — its 15th week in release.

As with many family toons, the Mouse House opted to pick and choose dates that would coincide with holidays in each market. That’s why it’s been more than three months since the Pixar toon first hit multiplexes in the United States.

Box Office Mojo now puts the film at a grand total of $450 million. A pretty grand total and firmly in the top 10 films for the year.
