Canada Sees Skynet, North America & UK Goes Museuming : Canadian, North American & UK Box Office May 22, 2009 Weekend

Terminator Salvation takes the cake and top spot here in Canada for the May 22, 2009 weekend and I'm not suprized as everyone I know went to see it. In North America it only placed second which makes sense for that on a US holiday weekend top spot went to a more family friendly choice with Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. No placement on the UK charts for Terminator Salvation, it will open there on June 3, 2009. One new title to my eyes on the UK chart was Tormented, a UK teen horror/comedy from director Jon Wright and it places #8 on its opening weekend but no word yet on a wider release. Also new (again) is to see Gran Torino back in the Canada charts, 24 weeks after release! Wowzers.
