Snow White and the Huntsman box office: Directed by Rupert Sanders, and starring Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, Best Actress Oscar winner Charlize Theron, and Sam Claflin, Snow White and the Huntsman will in all likelihood pass the $250m milestone at the worldwide box office on Monday, June 18.

As of Sunday, June 17, Snow White and the Huntsman has collected $247.2 million worldwide: $124.6 million overseas; $122.6 million in North America, according to studio estimates found at Box Office Mojo.

Internationally, Snow White and the Huntsman was the top movie in Japan, scoring $4.7m. Additionally, it opened with $6.1 million in Russia and $5.1 million in France. Its international total this weekend was $31.2 million in 57 territories. Only the 3D animated feature Madagascar 3: Europe's Mosted Wanted was more popular, having raked in $53m.

Up to June 10, Snow White and the Huntsman's biggest international territories were the United Kingdom with $14.66 million, Mexico with $9.15 million, Germany with $7.68 million, Brazil with $6.93 million, and Spain with $6.62m. Snow White and the Huntsman has been holding up particularly well in Brazil and the UK: in both countries, the film's first weekend take was only around 37 percent of its ten-day gross vs. Mexico, 56 percent; Germany, 53 percent; and Spain, 60 percent.

Also worth noting, this weekend the scale has finally tipped in favor of the international box office, which currently accounts for 50.4 percent of Snow White and the Huntsman's global cume. Chances are that percentage will grow in the coming weeks, as SWATH has lost quite a bit of steam at the domestic box office – and the film has yet to open in a handful of major and mid-level territories, including Australia, New Zealand, and Chile.

Snow White and the Huntsman box office: domestic

In North America, Rupert Sanders' period fantasy / adventure way overperformed when it debuted two weekends ago, grossing $56.2 million. The following weekend, the Snow White and the Huntsman box office was down an alarming 59 percent – likely due to strong competition from Madagascar 3 and Ridley Scott's sci-fier Prometheus, in addition to the possibility that Kristen Stewart's fans may have gone en masse on opening weekend to see Stewart play a Joan of Arc'ed version of Snow White.

Just as importantly, SWATH lacked strong reviews / word of mouth (the film received a "B" Cinemascore rating), which are crucial elements for a film's box office longevity. [See also Kristen Stewart box office draw.]

However, as expected, Snow White and the Huntsman's domestic box office performance has stabilized somewhat. True, reviews and word of mouth haven't been laudatory, but they haven't been damning, either. In fact, this weekend in the U.S. and Canada, SWATH grossed an estimated $13.8 million at 3,701 locations, or about 10 percent more than early estimates indicated. If that figure is accurate, the film was down a perfectly acceptable 40 percent from a week ago, after losing 76 venues (about 3 percent of its theaters).

Something else worth noting: despite two high-profile new releases this weekend – Tom Cruise's Rock of Ages and Adam Sandler / Andy Samberg's That's My BoySnow White and the Huntsman stood firm at no. 4, down only one slot from a week ago. Rock of Ages grossed only $1.2 million more at 3,470 sites; That's My Boy, possibly to become Adam Sandler's biggest box office flop ever (in relation to his films' budgets), was $800k behind at 3,030 theaters.

Written by Killing Season's Evan Daugherty, The Blind Side's John Lee Hancock, and Drive's Hossein Amini, Snow White and the Huntsman features Breaking Dawn Part 2's Kristen Stewart as Snow White, The Avengers' Chris Hemsworth as the Scottish-accented Huntsman, Monster's Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen Ravenna, and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' Sam Claflin as Prince Charming.

In addition to: Hollywoodland's Bob Hoskins, The Sweeney's Ray Winstone, Shrek the Third's Ian McShane, My Week with Marilyn's Toby Jones, Sherlock Holmes' Eddie Marsan, The Moth Diaries' Lily Cole, 300's Vincent Regan, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe's Noah Huntley, Shaun of the Dead's Nick Frost, and The Young Victoria's Rachael Stirling.
