MANILA, Philippines – “Interstellar,” the critically acclaimed new film from Christopher Nolan, continues to soar worldwide, surpassing the $400 million mark in its third weekend in release.

The film, which had dominated the global box office in its first two weekends in release, had a phenomenal opening in China, where it has taken in an outstanding Rmb 505m ($82.5m) in the first 12 days in release and is already the second highest grossing film for the studio. 
 
The film is now the biggest Warner Bros. release ever in Korea and, in Russia, is already the highest-grossing Christopher Nolan film ever.
