Los Angeles – The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader held on to the top spot at international theaters for another weekend with $24.5 million (R166 million) in 48 territories and a cumulative global total of $163.4 million.

In the number two spot and boasting 51 territories, the highest of any film in the international top 20, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 impressively crossed the $800 million mark and earned $22 million in its fifth weekend of release.
