Watchmen Take the Box Office to the Bank: Canadian, North American & UK Box Office March 6, 2009 Weekend

No big surprize that the highest anticipated film of the year so far, Watchmen, is number 1 films at the box office in Canada, North America and the UK. It is also the highest grossing weekend for 2009 in Canada and North America (but didn't beat out Bolt from Feb 13/09 in the UK). I'm impressed to see One Week debuts at #10 at the Box Office this weekend, which is the highest Canadian debut this year.

Across the pond, The Young Victoria hits the UK charts at #4. It is a UK/USA co-production based on the first years of Queen Victoria's rule, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (C.R.A.Z.Y.) starring Emily Blunt as Young Victoria and Rupert Friend as Prince Albert. Further casting includes Miranda Richardson, Jim Broadbent and Paul Bettany. No word on a Canadian release date yet, but I'll be keep you posted.
