Tiny blue creatures and giant robots dominated the international box office over the weekend. Sony's 3D animated sequel "The Smurfs 2" brought in $34.6 million from 66 markets in its second weekend and Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" tallied $33 million from 62 markets. A very strong second weekend in China drove Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.' "Pacific Rim." It brought in $21.7 million, which ups it total there to $76.4 million after 12 days, and makes it the studio's high-grossing ever in that country.
