Canadian, North American & UK Box Office January 23, 2009 weekend

For the second week running, Paul Blart: Mall Cop tops the Canadian and North American Box Office. Still feeling speechless on that one. Underworld: Rise of the Lycans takes the number 2 spot in Canada and North America, but comes in 5th in the UK. Slumdog Millionaire stays strong with its #1 spot on the UK chart for the second week running and has gained standing from 12th to 3rd in Canada and 10th to 5th in North America. Amazing what 10 Oscar nominations can do! The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (with 13 Oscar noms) also inched forward a bit in Canada & North America but will not hit UK screens until Feb 9, 2009.
