Canadian box-office stats — April 24

Here are the figures for the past weekend, arranged from those that owe the highest percentage of their take to the Canadian box office to those that owe the lowest.

Le Survenant — CDN $340,959 — N.AM $340,959 — 100%
Sin City — CDN $8,217,384 — N.AM $67,267,000 — 12.2%

Sahara — CDN $4,622,103 — N.AM $48,919,000 — 9.4%
A Lot Like Love — CDN $676,265 — N.AM $7,743,000 — 8.7%
The Interpreter — CDN $1,983,530 — N.AM $22,809,000 — 8.7%

Guess Who — CDN $5,340,521 — N.AM $62,375,000 — 8.6%
Robots — CDN $10,182,912 — N.AM $120,168,000 — 8.5%
The Amityville Horror — CDN $3,550,607 — N.AM $43,809,000 — 8.1%
Fever Pitch — CDN $1,785,291 — N.AM $31,451,000 — 5.7%
Kung Fu Hustle — CDN $378,189 — N.AM $8,031,000 — 4.7%

A couple of discrepancies: Le Survenant was #7 on the Canadian chart (it doesn’t turn up on the North American chart at all, yet), while King’s Ransom was #10 on the North American chart.

I am rather surprised by the low percentage for Kung Fu Hustle — I guess this kinda disproves my theory that Asian-themed films always do remarkably better in Canada than they do in the States. On the flip side, and in a more typical vein, King’s Ransom is an African-American film that opened in the top ten despite not even being released in Canada yet. I hear it opens in Toronto this coming Friday, and I have not yet heard of any press screenings, much less release dates, for it here in Vancouver.
