Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift

20th Cen­tury Fox’s computer-animated “Ice Age: Con­ti­nen­tal Drift” was the studio’s top for­eign box-office hit of 2012, gar­ner­ing a ginor­mous $718.1 million.

That’s far above the sec­ond– and third-place fin­ish­ers for Fox, the live-action Titanic 3D ($291.9 mil­lion) and Prometheus ($277.6 million).

The studio’s for­eign box office jumped 21%, with a total $2.725 bil­lion this year com­pared with $2.160 bil­lion in 2011.

Disney’s motion-capture John Carter had a sad per­for­mance mir­ror­ing its North Amer­i­can results. It made just $208.2 mil­lion over­seas, although Marvel’s live-action The Avengers helped make up for this by mak­ing a fan­tas­tic $892.4 mil­lion abroad.

Dis­ney made $2.080 bil­lion at the for­eign box office, down 6% from 2011.

Dis­trib­u­tor Paramount’s top-earning film over­seas this year was Dream­Works’ Mada­gas­car 3: Europe’s Most Wanted. The three­quel brought in $525.5 million.

Paramount’s over­seas grosses dropped 51% over last year, mak­ing $1.562 bil­lion this time around. Last year, it made $3.198 bil­lion, a for­eign record for the company.
