Quebec's Dede takes top spot away from One Week at Canadian box office

The Canadian road trip movie, One Week, starring Vancouver-born Joshua Jackson, was knocked off the top of the Canadian box office list by the debut of the Quebecois film Dédé, í  travers les brumes.

Dédé, about the late Quebecois singer André "Dédé" Fortin (who died in 2000) and his influential band, Les Colocs, was the only new addition to the Canadian top five films. It also managed to make the number nine film on the international box office charts in Canada.

One Week slipped off the international top 10 list (it was at  number eight the previous week).

Stone of Destiny, by Vancouver's Charles Martin Smith, reappeared in the Canadian top five at number five.

Gone from the Canadian top five are two comedies: Finn on the Fly and Le bonheur de Pierre.

Meanwhile, Watchmen was knocked off the top of the international film list at the Canadian box office by the Disney remake of Race to Witch Mountain.

Also new to the international top ten were the horror remake  The Last House on the Left and the  Playboy comedy  Miss March.
