Jason vs Bolt! Canadian, North American & UK Box Office February 13, 2009 weekend

Well, Jason wins 2:1 as Friday the 13th takes the top spot in Canada & North America and the cute Bolt races to 1st in the UK. Both films are in their first week of release in respective locations as is often the case with the top dog. I'm slightly embarrassed to say that I shelled out my cash to see Friday the 13th, however since I went on Monday it didn't go to the weekend total. It is surprizing to see The International's debut lower on the scale at the 7 to 8 mark in Canada and North America considering the long and wide promotions. Most of the top contenders for the Oscars are still coming in with strong numbers as we head into the last few days before the big event this Sunday February 22, 2009.
