On-line (but off-hand) I'd suggest the Internet Movie Database
( for B.O. numbers broken down by country.  They've only
recently started doing this in detail (i.e. since about the beginning of
1997), however.  As for more detailed financial information, your best bet
is still the trades, especially Variety (the print edition; the web site is
fairly limited).  Keep in mind that more detailed information like cast
salaries and non-theatrical revenues will be more difficult to track down.
Any other more useful sources out there, particularly on the Net?
