Prince of Persia movie is closing on $300 million in box office

Remember how the Prince of Persia movie was something of a disappointment when it came in third in its debut weekend at the US box office? Well things have changed a bit for the latest game-to-movie adaptation, thanks in part to a much better worldwide response to the movie.

According to Box Office Mojo, the US revenues for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time currently total $80.5 million after four weeks of release in theaters. That's a respectable but hardly outstanding number. However the current international box office take now stands at $213.1 million, over twice the US numbers.

That brings the total worldwide take for the movie to $293.6 million. It's likely that the total will exceed $300 million worldwide before its theatrical run comes to an end. That will make the movie the biggest box office game-to-movie adaptation of all time when adding both domestic and worldwide numbers with Lara Croft Tomb Raider now in second with a worldwide take of $274 million (Prince of Persia is still the third biggest game-to-movie adaptation with just the US box office numbers) The big question: Will those box office results get the movie a sequel?
