Showbizdata.com reports the ABBA musical Mamma Mia! surpassed the $400 million mark in overseas ticket sales this weekend, making it Universal Pictures' second-highest grossing film of all time, after Jurassic Park.
Mamma Mia! was no slouch in the U.S. either, earning $143 million this past summer and a third-place slot (behind Grease and Chicago) on boxofficemojo.com's chart of all-time highest grossing movie musicals. The movie's cumulative gross now stands at more than half a billion dollars. Apparently, there is no place in the world immune to the infectious charms of that musical force known as ABBA.
