World wide the film fared slightly better, it grossed $1.07 billion and is the 11th highest grossing film of all time, much of that was from Japan where it is the highest grossing film in that territory.

The Inbetweeners have become a pop culture phenomenon, there is no doubt, what started out as a adolescent comedy on Channel 4 turned into a £45 million grossing movie.
This week they are back for more of the same, only in Australia, and if the opening day gross of £2.75 million is setting the trend for this film then it will knock Guardians of the Galaxy from the top in style.
Make no mistake, this will be the number one film this week, it's simply a case of how much it can gross on it's debut.
Also out is Disney trying to milk their Planes franchise. One for the kids and one that should have been a video debut, Planes: Fire and Rescue will be a modest hit.
Released timely in the holidays it goes up agains How To Train Your Dragon 2 and The Nut Job, both old now, but should be a top 5 hit, if only for the familiarity and the Disney name.
