New-Side-Activity: Canadian, North American & UK Box Office December 4, 2009 Weekend

No agreement at the box office this week with three different films taking top honours in Canada, North America and the UK: The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Blind Side and Paranormal Activity, respectively. Up in the Air also hits the charts this week, which is impressive given it's current limited release. Over in the UK The Descent: Part 2 lands the #9 spot, no specific release date for the film on this side of the pond beyond '2010' in the States, but fingers are crossed to see that one.

That's interesting - I can't see the BlindSide doing so well in the UK (I'm assuming it's not released there yet)...maybe if it were about soccer :-)

Paranormal Activity is still going strong n the UK! Although I should not be surprised, they are the ones who brought us Most Haunted.

It's freaking me out that Transformers 2 is the highest grossing movie this year and makes me sad because if that's what people want to see, well, it does not bode well for quality movies in our near future.
