3 way split at the Box Office for the January 9, 2009 weekend

Let's see who championed the box office this week! Canada top film was the soon to be wed friends at odds Bride Wars, North American top film was all Clint in Gran Torino and over in the UK Role Models takes the cake. Overall there is a still a lot of people getting out to the films which were released around the holidays. It's understandable as so far this year we have not had to many new releases. That trend will change, at least here in Toronto, this weekend January 16, 2008 which already has four films scheduled to release. We shall see next week turns out, but until there here are the tallies.
