Here's the good news for Warners...Tom Cruise's "Edge Of Tomorrow" opened to a very strong $82 million over the weekend, including a tidy $25 from China.  Now for the bad news, the World Cup starts on Thursday, which will put a huge damper on the international box office.  Every four years the world gets together to watch the "Beautiful Game" and if a miracle occurs in the next four days and the Brazilian stadiums are actually ready for fans, then the tournament will commence this Thursday with host Brazil taking on Croatia.  The weekend will be packed with matches involving countries that figure heavily in a film's overseas gross, such as England, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Japan, Australia, Argentina and France.  The United States' bid for their first ever World Cup begins Monday afternoon against Ghana.  Just as an fyi, SkyBet UK lists Brazil as the favorites for the tournament at 11/4, with Argentina, Germany, Spain and Belgium close behind.  The US' odds currently sit at 250/1, slightly ahead of the odds of either Nigeria or Cameroon winning.  That's how low we've sunk in world football, trolling with Nigeria and Cameroon.


Ok, enough looking ahead, here's this past weekend's International box office Top 10...  


1)   EDGE OF TOMORROW---$82 MILLION---$110 MILLION CUME

2)   MALEFICENT---$60 MILLION---$208 MILLION CUME

3)   X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST---42 MILLION---$422 MILLION CUME

4)   THE FAULT IN OUR STARS---$17 MILLION (17 MARKETS)

5)   22 JUMP STREET---$8 MILLION (2 MARKETS)

6)   A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST---$6.4 MILLION---$20 MILLION CUME

7)   FROZEN (YES, STILL!!!)---$5.8 MILLION---$844 MILLION CUME

8)   GODZILLA---$5.4 MILLION---$208 MILLION CUME

9)   NEIGHBORS---$3.6 MILLION---$85 MILLION CUME

10) RIO 2---$2.5 MILLION---$343 MILLION CUME
