Shrek x2, Sex and the City 2 & the Prince: Canadian, North American, UK & Australian Box Office May 28, 2010 Weekend

It was a bit of an all over the place weekend with Shrek Forever After surprizingly taking the #1 spot in it's second week here in Canada and also in North America. Sex and the City 2 came in second in Canada and North America, it came in 1st in the UK and placed very high in terms of weekend grosses bringing in £6,142,718 which makes it the 4th highest weekend in the UK in 2010. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time opened this week and placed 3rd in Canada and North America and landed 1st place in Australia. One of my favourite misfit films, The Losers opened this week in the UK and Australia and placed 8th and 9th respectively.

Ne title not on the Canadian chart for this week is Avatar which after 23 straight weeks and one month after it's DVD release, it falls off the top 20. Wow. What a run. Interesting timing on that front is that Alice in Wonderland (2010) returned to the chart after dropping off last week.
