A couple of discrepancies: Based on its first two weeks, the Canadian figure for Open Season may or may not include its IMAX screenings. The Guardian and Trailer Park Boys: The Movie were #9 and #10 on the Canadian chart, respectively (the former film was #11 in North America, and the latter film isn’t on the North American chart at all), while Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and The Marine were #9 and #10 on the North American chart, respectively.
