Astro-update: Astro Boy Climbs up Another $3 Mil

Fly Astro fly!


As we pass the second box office weekend, Astro Boy has bumped up another 3 million in ticket sales. $3,035,000, to be exact (for an estimate based on Box Office Mojo,) bringing the film up to $10,891,000 (3,020 screens, $1,005 per screen.) While this is still considerably below the $65 million the film cost, I remain optimistic. Further comparative stats of second week box offices compiled by ANN. 
 
By comparison in their second weekend of release, 
Ponyo (2009) earned US$2,425,644 in 927 theaters (US$2,617 average), 
Dragonball: Evolution (2009) earned US1,684,942 in 2,181 theaters (US$773 average), 
Speed Racer (2008) earned US$8,117,459 in 3,606 theaters (US$2,251 average), 
and IMAGI's TMNT film (2007) earned US$9,232,362 in 3,120 theaters (US$2,959 average).

Is this just in the US, or is this including the International box office (as, from what I understand, the film is doing gangbusters in China - where IMAGI is based).
 
EDIT: Well, sort of - they're based in Hong Kong, which is part of China, but has significant cultural differences from the mainland.
