Twilight Tops Canadian Box Office for Third Week Running!

The numbers are in and we Canadians love our vamps. For the third week running Twilight has topped the weekend Canadian Box Office. This week second place goes to Four Christmas which has topped the North American Box Office for the past two weekends. As far as I can tell (going back to April 2008), the only other film to hold a three week No.1 spot this year is The Dark Knight.

More news in the Twilight world, the second book "New Moon" has gotten the go ahead for a film adaptation however it will not be directed by Catherine Hardwicke due to timing.

Way to go Twilight! I'm so glad its success has helped paved and pay the way for New Moon to be made. I can't wait to get my collection and start reading it. There isn't a lot out there to go see and I would prefer to see Twilight again than see most of what's out there. I have a feeling I will be seeing Four Christmases very soon though. I miss going to the movies and R will not see Twilight again!

I'm with Suzie. I'm finding it hard to work up the energy to get excited over anything. Have a date to see Twilight again this weekend with a girlfriend and I have a feeling I may need a fill before then. I blame it on the recent reading of the leaked "Midnight Sun" manuscript.
