Times, How to Train Your Dragon managed to do well both in the U.S. and Canada, holding on to the top spot at the box office with $15 million (Tribute users ranking: 4.6 out of 5 stars) in its fifth weekend at the box office. Canadians joined their American neighbors in helping the new film The Back-Up Plan starring Jennifer Lopez land second spot with $12.3 million (Tribute users ranking: 4.2). “I thought we’d have this piece of the pie, but I also thought that the overall pie would be bigger,” said Stephen Friedlander, CBS Films, of their film The Back-Up Plan. In its second week of release, Date Night earned $10.6 million (Tribute users ranking: 4.1). Another new movie, The Losers, managed to get into the top five with $9.6 million (Tribute users ranking: 4.2), while Kick-Ass followed closely behind in its second weekend with $9.5 million (Tribute users ranking: 4.4).
