Tom Cruise's "Edge of Tomorrow" brought in $82 million to lead the overseas box office this weekend, paced by No. 1 openings in China, Korea and Russia.

Critics' review: 'Edge of Tomorrow'

The $25 million that the sci-fi saga brought in over the three days in China was just under the $29.1 million that it opened with in North America. A big overseas showing will be crucial for "Edge," which carries a $178 million production budget, and has now taken in $111 million from abroad.

It added $16.1 million from Korea, 37 percent ahead of "Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol," according to distributor Warner Bros.

It added $8.6 million from Russia, in what is expected to be Cruise's biggest opening ever in that market.

Disney's "Maleficent" was second overseas this weekend, with an impressive $59.7 million from 53 foreign markets. That ups the foreign total for the live-action update of "Sleeping Beauty" to $208 million, and its worldwide total past $335 million.

Fox's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" brought in another $42 million from 74 markets over the weekend. That ups the international total for the Marvel mutant mashup to $422 million, and its worldwide total to $611 million after less than three weeks in release.
