Canadian box-office stats — April 3

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.

Hostage — CDN $4,287,895 — N.AM $30,288,870 — 14.2%
Sin City — CDN $2,793,385 — N.AM $29,120,273 — 9.6%
Hitch — CDN $16,463,045 — N.AM $171,266,743 — 9.6%
Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous — CDN $2,729,762 — N.AM $31,127,190 — 8.8%

Robots — CDN $8,827,551 — N.AM $104,420,872 — 8.5%
Guess Who — CDN $3,286,275 — N.AM $41,040,531 — 8.0%
The Ring Two — CDN $5,318,426 — N.AM $68,046,127 — 7.8%
The Pacifier — CDN $7,336,816 — N.AM $96,117,665 — 7.6%
The Upside of Anger — CDN $496,425 — N.AM $8,603,771 — 5.8%
Beauty Shop — CDN $300,340 — N.AM $16,647,604 — 1.8%

A couple of discrepancies: Hostage was #7 on the Canadian chart (it was #11 in North America as a whole), while Ice Princess was #10 on the North American chart. Note also that Beauty Shop was #2 in “North America” but #10 in Canada — and its 1.8% rate is the lowest I have seen in the nine months or so that I’ve been following this stuff, with the possible exception of Diary of a Mad Black Woman, which never made the Canadian top ten list at all.
