Freddy vs RDJ: Canadian, North American, UK & Australian Box Office April 30, 2010 Weekend

It's an even split this week with A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010) taking the Box Office #1 in Canada & North America where it was released and Iron Man 2 smashing the UK and Australian box office opening at #1 in both and in cases. Iron Man 2 takes in some huge returns too, landing #2 for weekend grosses of the year in the UK and #3 in Australia coming behind Alice in Wonderland (2010) or a combination of Alice in Wonderland (2010) and Avatar, and that makes it the highest grosses 2D film in it's respective lists. It will be very interesting to see how it does here in Canada when it opens this week, the original Iron Man did spectacularly well back in 2008.

Other debuts in Canada this week include Furry Vengeance at #5, the Paul Gross comedy/western Gunless at #11 and Millenium 3 aka Luftslottet som sprängdes aka The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest aka the 3rd film in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. In the UK The Last Song opens at #4 and Housefull opens at #10, and over in Australia The Concert debuts at #15.
