Let's face it, Michael Bay's The Island is a much better film than the US box office has given credit for. With only $34 million in twenty-four days, we can expect Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo to do better; and that's crap. Luckily for Dreamworks, and Michael Bay, the international box is appreciating The Island much, much better.

The Island Enjoys Intl Numbers

This last weekend The Island was able to finally beat out Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for the top spot for the international box office. According to THR, The Island has experienced an international gross of $63.2 million, thanks to openings in the UK, Mexico and Russia. Though this might still not be enough to cover the initial budget of the film, The Island is back on track to at least break even before licensing and DVD sales. So, if you are a fan of Michael Bay, rest assured that The Island will still earn plenty of money by the time we own copies of the DVD in our homes. If there is one thing The Island has it is a nice entertainment factor, which is a big element to DVD purchases.

Other than that, it seems that the international box office may be slightly more attuned to cloning [something that has a 'no no' tag in the US] or just enjoy a simple action flick.
