Knowing is More Than Half the Battle: Canadian, North American & UK Box Office March 20, 2009 Weekend

The word is, folks want to know. Knowing picked up top spot on both the Canadian and North American box office charts for the March 20, 2009 weekend beating out both Duplicity and bromance I Love You, Man. Watchmen sits at a #5 on all three charts in its third week and Sunshine Cleaning starring Amy Adams and Emily Blunt sits at 16 in North America but won't be released here in Toronto this Friday March 27, 2009.

Over the pond dogs are still taking top honours with Marley & Me reigning supreme for a second week running. The buzz around Lesbian Vampire Killers pays off with the film first week in release landing at #4 on the UK right after its SXSW appearance. The buzz on this film has been all over the place for quite a while. No Canadian or North American release date as of yet. I was hoping it was lesbians that kill vampires but considering the poster, trailer and site all note the two male leads its clear they kill lesbian vampires. See more at the Lesbian Vampire Killers website.
