Though Jerry Bruckheimer's latest opus, a film adaptation of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
, wasn't received with commercial fanfare in the U.S.
(it's only pulled in about $80 million domestically), it's fared far better overseas. According to Box Office Mojo
, the movie's received worldwide earnings of $293 million, making it the highest grossing game-to-film adaptation to date.
The previous holder of this prestigious title was the original Tomb Raider
film, which currently stands at $274 million
worldwide. We're overjoyed that Prince of Persia
managed to surpass this record -- mainly because, hey, it's about time someone took Jon Voight down a peg or two.
