Angelina Jolie did it again! "Salt" tops 100 million!

Angelina Jolie enjoyed a solid second weekend for her spy thriller Salt which dropped 47%, reasonably low for a summer action movie, to an estimated $19.3M in third place. Sony has banked $70.8M in ten days and looks headed for the vicinity of $120M coming close to the $134.5M of her 2008 stylish effects-heavy action title Wanted. Overseas, Salt's roll out continued this weekend with top spot bows in South Korea, Russia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Ukraine, and the Philippines. The international take over the frame was $24.5M upping the cume to $32.8M for a global gross of $103.6M to date with much more to come. With a production cost north of $100M, the stunts-heavy pic could be heading for a worldwide tally of $300M or more.
