Snow White and the Huntsman premiere hit Kristen Stewart

Snow White and the Huntsman, which "premiered" last Friday in North America, has already passed the $100 million milestone at the worldwide box office. Directed by feature-film first-timer Rupert Sanders, the period fantasy adventure stars The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2's Kristen Stewart, The Avengers' Chris Hemsworth, Prometheus' Charlize Theron, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin.

According to Box Office Mojo, as of Tuesday Snow White and the Huntsman's partially updated worldwide box office cume stood at $106.45 million. I say "partially" because although domestic box office figures have been updated daily, international figures are estimates up to Sunday. For the record: Snow White and the Huntsman has taken in $67.15 million in the U.S. and Canada and (as of Sunday) an estimated $39.3 million in 45 markets.

SWATH easily topped the North American box office last weekend, though, screening at fewer theaters (and in 2D), it trailed Men in Black III and Prometheus overseas. Box-office actuals are currently available for only 31 of SWATH's 45 international markets; those total $30.5 million. Snow White and the Huntsman's top territories were the United Kingdom (an estimated $5.5 million), Mexico ($4.9 million), Germany ($4.07 million), Spain ($3.96 million), South Korea ($2.95 million), and Brazil ($2.58m).

Budgeted at $170m, Snow White and the Huntsman was written by Evan Daugherty (Killing Season), John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side), and Hossein Amini (Drive). Besides Kristen Stewart (Snow White), Charlize Theron (Evil Queen), Chris Hemsworth (Huntsman), and Sam Claflin (Prince Charming), the SWATH cast includes Who Framed Roger Rabbit's Bob Hoskins, The Sweeney's Ray Winstone, Shrek the Third's Ian McShane, My Week with Marilyn's Toby Jones, and Vera Drake's Eddie Marsan.

In addition to: The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus' Lily Cole, Clash of the Titans' Vincent Regan, 28 Days Later's Noah Huntley, Shaun of the Dead's Nick Frost, and Young Victoria's Rachael Stirling.
