Retreat is Up! Canadian, North American & UK Box Office October 9, 2009 Weekend

Photobucket

Couples Retreat didn't scare anyone away as it landed in the top spot in Canada and North America. Special screenings of Paranormal Activity made and impressive mark landing #2 in North America however was on the other end of the spectrum for Canada debuting at #10 - but considering Toronto alone only had 4 screenings that is still impressive. When will see see it out in regular theatres I wonder? Some familiar titles get a UK release including Up which snags top honours, followed by Zombieland which sits at #2 for all three charts.
