2012 movie conquers worldwide box office

Roland Emmerich's disaster epic 2012 has shot to the top of the worldwide box office with an estimated global haul of $225m.

The figures represent the fifth biggest international opening of all time for a blockbuster. In America, the film took $65m to claim top spot at the box office.

Ironically, that figure was just below the $68.7m for Emmerich's previous personal best, The Day After Tomorrow. Sony Pictures distribution president Rory Bruer declared triumphantly: "I felt the Earth move.

"Audiences responded to the amazing images they were seeing throughout the film's campaign. This movie really did raise the bar, even for Roland Emmerich."

Elsewhere at the US box office, Robert Zemeckis' Disney's A Christmas Carol slipped to second spot with a further $22.3m, taking its total to $63.3m in two weeks of release.

But new opener Pirate Radio (aka The Boat That Rocked in the UK), from writer-director Richard Curtis, failed to make the US top 10 with just $2.9m.
