Mission: Impossible - III: $134M domestic vs $150M budget. Made $263M overseas. Got a sequel.
The second Narnia movie: $141M domestic vs $225M budget. Made $278M overseas. Got a sequel.
Kung Fu Panda 2: $165M domestic vs. $150M budget (didn't really tank but underperformed domestically). Made $500M overseas. Another sequel is in the works.
The Expendables 2: $85M domestic vs $100M budget. Made $215M overseas. Another sequel and a possible female spinoff are in the works.
Prometheus: $126M domestic vs. $130M budget. Made $276M overseas. A sequel is in the works.

And there are a few movie that tanked in all markets and yet still got sequels: Ghost Rider, The Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift to name a couple.
