You're dying to know what our cousins around the world like in the way of American movies!Do they love the indies? The R-rated comedies? Turns out they like pretty much the same stuff we do. Well, maybe except for Hancock. I don't think it was quite that boffo here. Yes, Variety sticks to the classics. Boffo.

1. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Paramount)
2. The Dark Knight (Warner Bros.)
3. Mamma Mia! (Universal)
