Going Up or Draggin' Down? Canadian, North American & UK Box Office May 29, 2009 Weekend

No surprize this week with Up taking the cake in Canada & North America charts and also has been received well so far (currently sitting at 88 on Metacritic, 98% Rotten Tomatoes and #12 on IMDb top 250). Our friends in the UK have to wait until October 16, 2009 for the films release - yikes! But, UK fans were out in droves to see the latest Sam Raimi horror film Drag Me To Hell and it debuted #2 on the UK charts, #4 in North America, #6 in Canada and also has been received rather well sitting at 88 on Metacritic and 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. I haven't seen either (yet! I will.. soon, hopefully) but did get out to see the fantastic film Every Little Step, a documentary on the casting for the revival of a A Chorus Line.
