The Brothers Grimm
dropped just 35% during its second weekend in France adding $2.1 million to its $5.7 million total there. In Germany, the film performed a nearly the same level falling 36% to $950,000 over the weekend and $2.9 million during its run. Overall the film made $4 million for a $27.8 million runny tally and that places it fourth on this week's charts. While the film struggled domestically, it is doing quite a bit better on the international scene, and could show a profit sometime during its home market run.

Company 9 remained in first place in Russia, its home market, down just 13% to $4.3 million for a running total of $14.3 million, which is well ahead of Revenge of the Sith's final box office in the market (which was just shy of $10 million).

There was only one film in the $10,000 club this weekend and 9 Songs led the way with $13,457.
All signs indicate that this was a result of controversy over quality, but it's too soon to see how that will affect the film's long-term chances.

For the third weekend in a row March of the Penguins was the top draw on the Per Theater Charts with over $1 million on just 64 screens for an average of $15,927.
Its per theater average fell a mere 23% on the post-holiday weekend despite more than tripling its theater count, which bodes very well for the film's long term success.
Coming in a very close second was the overall box office champ, Fantastic Four with $15,564.

It looked like the box office was turning around, and while post-holiday slumps are common, this time it was so big that no film made it to the $10,000 club.
The closest was Apres Vous, which brought in $25,504 in 3 theaters for a $8,501 average.

Repeating on top on the Per Theater Charts is tough, especially for a saturation level release like Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
This week the overall chart topper earned an average of $15,071 in its 3,663 theaters, which put it ahead of the third place film, The Longest Yard, which managed $13,100.
The only limited release to crack the $10,000 club was Saving Face with $75,000 in 6 theaters for a $12,517 average. Lastly, we have Madagascar with $11,432.
