Dates, Hot Tubs & Resilent Dragons: Canadian, North American, UK & Australian Box Office April 23, 2010 Weekend

How to Train Your Dragon stays back on top again this week in the Canadian and North American Box Office in it's 5th week, although The Back-Up came up as a close second in both cases. Also in it's debut week is The Losers which opened at #4 in North America and #6 in Canada and The Secret in Their Eyes in limited release but still made the charts although in the high teens.

In the UK Date Night debuted in the #1 spot and went neck & neck in it's third week in Australia against Hot Tub Time Machine which nudged it's way to #1 there. New to the UK charts It's a Wonderful Afterlife which debuts at #7 and The Joneses at #10. When in Rome debuts in Australia at #6.

Overall it was a very quiet week for the box office which each and every #1 ending up being the lowest grossing #1's for each this year. Interesting to see that Avatar is still listing and making money at the box ffice even though it made it's DVD release last Thursday.
