Watchmen #1 in Canada for Second Week Running: : Canadian, North American & UK Box Office March 13, 2009 Weekend

Although the talk on the internet is all about the Watchmen not being #1 it actually is here in Canada, making $2 million on the March 13, 2009 weekend with Race to Witch Mountain coming in at #2 with $1.57 million. The Canadian film One Week holds strong only dipping 1 place from it's opening weekend.

In the UK Marley & Me debuts at #1 (what is it about dog films?) and we get another glance at a new title that hits the charts at #10: Bronson, a biopic on Charles Bronson directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (Pusher Trilogy) and starring Tom Hardy (RocknRolla, Star Trek: Nemisis) in the title role. No Canadian release date noted for Bronson yet, but it's set to hit screens in the US in October 2009. See more about Bronson at its IMDb page.
