It didn’t matter that most critics thought the most fascinating thing about The Da Vinci Code was Tom Hanks’ curious mane selection, because apparently nearly everyone on the planet who read the book showed up to watch him decipher a biblical riddle for Ron Howard — the international box office was nearly twice the $77 million domestic haul, making M:I3‘s foreign figures look worse than a freaky albino zealot. Sacrilege pays!

Don’t feel too bad for Dreamwork’s entry into the overcrowded zoo of CG-animated critters — Over the Hedge might not have religious conspiracies, but its animals were well cared for with a $37 million meal. The horror flick See No Evil had some stiff competition, but still scored a decent per-screen average on a third of the theaters as the other new blockbusters. 

Next weekend, comic fans will either sigh with relief or grunt with disgust after they check out X-Men 3.
