BURBANK, Calif., May 24 (UPI) -- Baz Luhrmann's big-screen adaptation of the classic novel, "The Great Gatsby," has crossed the $100 million mark at the North American box office.

Warner Bros. announced the milestone Friday -- two weeks after the film's domestic opening.

The international cumulative gross now stands at an estimated $64.4 million, with major markets such as Australia, Mexico, Brazil and Japan yet to open. The worldwide total box office now stands at $165.1 million and counting.

"Just as the book has been beloved by readers for generations, Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' has already become a favorite of moviegoers. We all congratulate Baz and his amazing cast and crew on the success of the film, which will continue to enjoy the lucrative summer play time," Dan Fellman, WB's president of domestic distribution, said in a statement.

The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire.
