Romantic Takes the Top: Canadian, North American & UK Box Office February 6, 2009 weekend

February starts with romance as He's Just Not That Into You takes the top spot this past weekend at the Canadian and North American Box Office and comes in 2nd in the UK. It's exciting to see Polytechnique hit the charts at 13 in Canada as the first Canadian film on the 2009 Box Office Top Listings. Across the pond, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button opens at number one and family friendly fantasy The Secret of Moonacre debuts at number seven.
