|Still from Real Steel|
Without a doubt, Real Steel demolishes the competition this weekend at the Box Office, running away with a stellar debut of $27 million from 3,440 theatres in North America. The Disney Father/Son Action flick starring Hugh Jackman and Toronto's own Dakota Goyo, recently had its Canadian Premiere here in Toronto and I am proud to have been a part of it all!

Despite some great reviews for George Clooney's The Ides of March, it only could muster a debut in second spot with $11 million from 2,199 theatres which might seem a bit underwhelming for the Political Drama with an All-star Cast of Ryan Gosling, Marisa Tomei, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti and Evan Rachel Wood, in addition to Clooney himself.
After landing on-top of the Box Office last weekend, Warner Bros.,' A Dolphin Tale slips to third spot this weekend with $8.5 million in its third week, just ahead of Moneyball with $7 million for Sony Pictures.
Cancer Dramedy 50/50 slips to fifth spot this weekend with $5.5 million, experiencing a 40% slip from its opening weekend. Meanwhile, former Champion The Lion King 3-D drops to eighth spot this weekend with $5 million, earning $86.4 million in its four-week run.
