Kristin Kreuk's Street Fighter comes in eighth in debut

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li did modest business in its debut over the Feb. 27 weekend, taking in about $4.7 million from 1,136 screens to place eighth among the box office contenders, Variety reported.

Meanwhile, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button may have walked away without the big awards at the Academy Awards after being nominated in top categories, but the film is turning into a worldwide success.

Over the weekend a foreign gross of $13.4 million sent Button over the $300 million mark, and the movie remained number one for the fourth consecutive weekend overseas.
