Animated film Finding Nemo has broken the $500m (£276m) barrier in international ticket sales.
The cartoon was made by Pixar, the creators of Toy Story
The film, about a clownfish's attempt to find his lost son, is the first animated movie to make more than $500m in sales outside the US.
It has now made $504.2m (£278.5m) outside the US, including $93m (£51.3m) in Japan, reports UK industry newspaper Screen International.
The film reached number one in the UK when it was released in October.
In France the film - which has made $63m (£34.8m) there - looks set to overtake the total made by the Disney-animated hit The Lion King.
Finding Nemo's records also included an opening weekend worth $310,000 (£171,000) in Turkey, a record for an animated film there.
The film is produced by the animation studio Pixar, which has also made hits such as Toy Story and Monsters, Inc.
The underwater hit is joined by 10 other films which can compete for the animated feature Oscar at the Academy Awards next month.
The film is also nominated for best original screenplay in the UK's film awards, the Baftas, which also take place in February.
