LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - “Iron Man” led the foreign box office for a third weekend Sunday, narrowly besting newcomer “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” and the romantic comedy “What Happens in Vegas,” according to studio estimates.

The superhero saga grossed an estimated $25.6 million from 62 territories, raising its foreign total to $206 million.

“Prince Caspian,” the second title in the franchise based on C.S. Lewis’ series of fantasy novels, pulled in about $20.7 million from 12 markets. The film opened at No. 1 in North America with $56.6 million, far short of industry expectations.

“Vegas,” co-starring Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz, bagged an estimated $20 million from 56 markets in its second session, raising its total to $55 million.

Fourth place went to the spectacular dud “Speed Racer,” with $7 million from 39 territories. The Wachowski brothers’ $160 million adaptation of the animated Japanese TV series has accumulated a disappointing $24.4 million overseas and about $30 million domestically.

The romantic comedy “Made of Honor” was No. 5, thanks to a $5.7 million weekend from 25 markets; its international total stands at $19.6 million.
