canadian box-office stats

50 posts in this topic

I thought about posting this in the Fahrenheit 9/11 thread, but then realized this issue is actually a fair bit broader than that.

Recently, Variety magazine noted that Fahrenheit 9/11 -- the film that was made for the specific purpose of ousting the current American president -- is getting a larger portion of its box-office revenues than is usual for an American film from Canada, where pretty much no one could vote for an American president (of whatever party) even if we wanted to. In a country with slightly more than 10 percent of the American population, the film has raked in about 16 percent of what it's grossed in the United States. This got me thinking about those reports a few months back about how, in Canada, The Passion of the Christ had only made about 7 percent of what it made in the United States, and what these sorts of figures might imply about cultural differences between our two countries.

Now, I don't know if there are any really good websites out there for keeping track of Canadian box-office figures, but Tribute.ca had the following to say about the cumes for last week's top ten movies (the North American figures include both Canada and the United States, and each Canadian dollar is counted as an American dollar just to keep things simple; I have also calculated the percentage of the North American figure that is Canadian, and ranked the films accordingly):

Fahrenheit 9/11 -- CDN $7,568,144 -- N.AM $55,373,406 -- 13.7%

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban -- CDN $24,763,894 -- N.AM $223,117,013 -- 11.1%

The Notebook -- CDN $2,883,670 -- N.AM $28,753,526 -- 10.0%

Two Brothers -- CDN $1,154,296 -- N.AM $11,676,995 -- 9.9%

Spider-Man 2 -- CDN $14,993,363 -- N.AM $152,411,751 -- 9.8%

Shrek 2 -- CDN $38,793,008 -- N.AM $408,139,196 -- 9.5%

The Terminal -- CDN $4,427,726 -- N.AM $54,327,957 -- 8.2%

DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story -- CDN $6,145,067 -- N.AM $84,369,182 -- 7.3%

Garfield: The Movie -- CDN $4,105,480 -- N.AM $62,984,465 -- 6.5%

White Chicks -- CDN $2,743,387 -- N.AM $43,788,134 -- 6.3%

FWIW, according to Statistics Canada, Canada had an estimated population of about 31,825,416 in April of this year, while the "population clock" at census.gov says the United States has a population of about 293,713,183, for a North American total of 325,538,599, of which Canada comprises about 9.7% -- so, within a single percentage point, it would seem we share American tastes in film when it comes to films like Spider-Man 2, Shrek 2, The Notebook and Two Brothers -- but we are rather MORE fond of British-boarding-school movies like Harry Potter and especially more fond of American-politics-bashing films like Fahrenheit 9/11 -- and we are rather LESS fond of African-American movies, Ben Stiller comedies, Spielberg/Hanks flicks, and, um, whatever you'd call the Garfield movie.

. . . AMENDMENT . . .

Just for ease of reference, I am adding, at the bottom of this first post, a list of all the films that have appeared on these charts, with their final cumes and percentages as of their last week on the Canadian chart. Links to threads, if any, are in the original posts.

Here's an update for ya:

Fahrenheit 9/11 -- CDN $10,654,422 -- N.AM $80,090,000 -- 13.3%

King Arthur -- CDN $2,368,038 -- N.AM $23,585,000 -- 10.0%

The Notebook -- CDN $4,170,822 -- N.AM $43,071,000 -- 9.7%

Spider-Man 2 -- CDN $22,974,018 -- N.AM $257,258,000 -- 8.9%

The Terminal -- CDN $5,151,350 -- N.AM $65,288,000 -- 7.9%

DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story -- CDN $6,911,561 -- N.AM $97,556,000 -- 7.1%

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy -- CDN $1,665,903 -- N.AM $28,000,000 -- 5.9%

Also noteworthy: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was #7 in Canada but failed to make the Top Ten in North America as a whole; plus, a film called Camping Sauvage ranked #8 in Canada but was probably not released in the United States at all (or outside of Quebec, for that matter).

Meanwhile, White Chicks and Sleepover were on the North American Top Ten list but failed to make the list in Canada.

Also noteworthy: In Canada, the #8 to #10 spots were taken by Shrek 2, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and Camping Sauvage; however, in North America as a whole, those spots were taken by White Chicks, DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, and The Terminal.

Interesting. I would have thought the European elements in The Bourne Supremacy would have given it a special appeal in Canada, but apparently not.

A statutory holiday last Monday apparently slowed down the update on that Canadian box-office chart. But now the figures are in for the weekend of July 30-August 1:

Fahrenheit 9/11 -- CDN $15,739,660 -- N.AM $109,442,647 -- 14.4%

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle -- CDN $599,594 -- N.AM $5,480,378 -- 10.9%

Thunderbirds -- CDN $298,011 -- N.AM $2,766,810 -- 10.8%

Spider-Man 2 -- CDN $34,019,179 -- N.AM $344,440,594 -- 9.9%

A Cinderella Story -- CDN $3,962,960 -- N.AM $40,322,944 -- 9.8%

The Bourne Supremacy -- CDN $9,564,754 -- N.AM $98,830,075 -- 9.7%

I, Robot -- CDN $7,933,887 -- N.AM $115,039,036 -- 6.9%

Catwoman -- CDN $1,822,450 -- N.AM $29,776,003 -- 6.1%

The Manchurian Candidate -- CDN $1,216,678 -- N.AM $20,018,620 -- 6.1%

The Village -- CDN $2,938,376 -- N.AM $50,746,142 -- 5.8%

In addition, Anchorman was #9 in North America but failed to make the Canadian Top Ten, while Thunderbirds was #10 in Canada but failed to make the North American Top Ten; I have included it above because it was possible to find both its Canadian and North American figures, whereas no Canadian figures are available for Anchorman.

One trend I'm noticing, BTW, is that the percentages tend to creep up from week to week -- suggesting, perhaps, that Americans drop movies faster than Canadians do? And Harold & Kumar seems to have bucked the trend of Canadian resistance to dumb, lowbrow, vulgar comedies -- but perhaps because we have more of an affinity for movies with Asian co-stars? Just a guess.

Peter, I wonder if screen counts have anything to do with that? Do you have access to the number of screens in Canada as a percentage of North America? It's possible, for example, that some prints get added here later in the run, while the number of screens is declining in the US. That would likely affect box office totals.

I, Robot -- CDN $9,185,153 -- N.AM $126,922,313 -- 7.2%

For some reason, this week's Canadian list gives a Top Nine but not a full Top Ten; at any rate, Fahrenheit 9/11 was #9 in Canada but #11 in North America, while the #9 and #10 spots in North America were taken by Catwoman and A Cinderella Story.

Interesting ... do you know WHY prints would get added here, though? Are you thinking of the way films sometimes take a while to get out into the not-so-urban areas? Friends of mine in small towns in the States complain that it takes a while for films to reach them, too.

Well we have shorter attention spans I would imagine ... and I also think we participate in group think moreso (all people do in some way or another) so if the bad buzz gets around most Americans decide against going.
