Box office reports
Johnny Depp as animated chameleon Sheriff Rango topped the international box office this past weekend with an impressive $22 million in 38 territories.

After debuting in second place the previous weekend behind Oscar-fueled The King's Speech, the animated family film moved into first and has $120.4 million in global box office revenue to date. American-made animated family films have gained broad acceptance overseas, with Gnomeo and Juliet and Tangled also finding favor with kids and families on a global scale.

The devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the world's second-largest movie market behind North America, resulted in more than a 40 percent drop in box office revenues from the region, according to global media measurement company Rentrak Corp. Long-term impact of the quake on the international marketplace could also be significant.
