LOS ANGELES - Warner Bros.-DC Entertainment's "Justice League" has crossed the $300 million milestone at the international box office, thanks to a second weekend of $72.2 million at 31,450 screens in 66 markets.

With the US gross of $171.2 million after 10 days, the superhero team-up has earned a total of $481.3 million worldwide.

The top international performance for "Justice League" came from China, with a second-place $15.8 million on roughly 10,000 screens, lifting that market's total to $83.1 million after two weekends.

The first weekend of Disney-Pixar's "Coco" finished ahead of "Justice League" in China with $18.2 million -- making it the second-best opening ever for a Disney-Pixar animated release, behind only "Zootopia." "Coco" also opened in first place in Russia with $3.1 million and generated another another $2.2 million in Mexico to lift its record-breaking total to $53.4 million.
