Canadian Passchendaele outperforms Hollywood competition

Giving the Canadian film industry some maple leaf pride, Paul Gross' Passchendaele outperformed much of its Hollywood competition in its first week run.

The Canadian war epic hauled in $1,380,180 from 202 theatres. It finished second at the Canadian box office, behind Max Payne, which brought in $2,119,213 from 241 theatres in its first week run.

Passchendaele beat out Oliver Stone's  W. (at number 6), Sex Drive (number 8), and The Secret Life of Bees, which rounded out the top ten.

It also topped the Canadian film top ten, followed by the Canada-Brazil-Japan coproduction Blindness, starring Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, and Gael  Garcia Bernal,  now in its third week.
