'Eye' on the overseas prize

As a batch of less-than-blockbuster titles vie for attention during the postsummer downswing at the overseas boxoffice, Paramount's "Eagle Eye," Universal's "Burn After Reading" and Fox's "Max Payne" were among newcomers displaying moderate promise in early dates.

"Eagle Eye," the action thriller starring Shia LaBeouf, took command of the international market with a weekend score of $11.1 million from 3,483 screens in 42 markets, its advance largely due to seven new openings led by a pair of No. 2 bows in Japan ($2.5 million from 306 screens) and the U.K. ($1.9 million from 361).
