Sex And The City edged out Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull to claim the No. 1 spot at the weekend box office overseas.

The romantic comedy earned an estimated $38.2 million US from 40 markets during its second weekend, and has racked up $91.3 million to date.

Crystal Skull, meanwhile, has accumulated $326 million internationally, thanks to a $36 million weekend in 60 territories.

It had been the top choice overseas for the previous two weekends.

Kung Fu Panda, which replaced Sex and the City atop the North American box office, also debuted at No. 1 in nine overseas markets with an animated $20.7 million.

The Jack Black comedy grossed a stunning $9.2 million in Russia, and $7.5 million in South Korea.
Sex broke out in 25 fresh markets after its limited opening last weekend.

It finished No. 1 in 13 of the new territories, with Australia ($7.7 million) leading the pack.

Crystal Skull might have been hurt by the launch of the European Cup soccer championship.

Nonetheless, Crystal Skull held well in France, Spain, Germany and the U.K., where it tallied $5.6 million for a market total of $65.2 million.
