Three Way Split! Canadian, North American & UK Box Office October 16, 2009 Weekend

No consensus for the top spot this week with #1 in Canada going to Law Abiding Citizen, #1 in North America is the adaptation of beloved children's book and Where the Wild Things Are and Up takes #1 in the UK. I'm a little surprized that Where the Wild Things wasn't #1 in Canada, and will be curious to see how it does once it is released in the UK on December 11, 2009. Landing in the #3 spot in the UK is the phenomenal The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus on it's debut week. It will be released in Canada on December 25, 2009.
