There are seven rather than five billionaire movies that grossed $1b or more outside of the U.S.A. and Canada. I am hair-splitting and Box Office Mojo uses Overseas as a title category, but I find the term misleading, as I don't consider North America's Mexico, Central America and South America to be overseas. Mojo also uses "Foreign" on another page, but I find that to be equally misleading because it based on your perspective. Maybe, Non-Domestic is better with an explanation that it excludes the U.S.A. and Canada. I think most people don't realize Canada is included in reported domestic box office totals even though it is only just over 10% of the domestic total usually. I am sure you will decide what is best. At the very least but an asterisk next to it, defining Overseas as (* World minus USA/Canada) for clarity.

Rank Title Studio Worldwide Domestic / %Overseas / %Year^
1 1 Avatar Fox $2,788.0 $760.5 27.3% $2,027.5 72.7% 2009^
2 2 Titanic Par. $2,187.5 $659.4 30.1% $1,528.1 69.9% 1997^
3 4 Avengers: Infinity War BV $2,048.2 $678.8 33.1% $1,369.4 66.9% 2018
4 7 Furious 7 Uni. $1,516.0 $353.0 23.3% $1,163.0 76.7% 2015
5 3 Star Wars: The Force Awakens BV $2,068.2 $936.7 45.3% $1,131.6 54.7% 2015
6 5 Jurassic World Uni. $1,671.7 $652.3 39.0% $1,019.4 61.0% 2015
7 16 The Fate of the Furious Uni. $1,236.0 $226.0 18.3% $1,010.0 81.7% 2017
