It’s official: Noah is now the top-grossing Bible movie ever overseas, in unadjusted dollars.
The film also grossed an estimated $210,000 in North America this weekend, raising its domestic total to $100.3 million. This is well, well behind the $370.8 million that The Passion grossed in North America, and slightly behind the $101.4 million that The Prince of Egypt grossed in North America in 1998 and 1999.
Noah is currently playing in over 40 territories and has earned $343.3 million worldwide so far. It opens in Japan next month.In other news…
