Much was riding on the two new releases, Luck By Chance and Victory, but the response to them has been ice-cold. Released extensively in the international markets, Luck By Chance is below average in America, but a major letdown in U.K. On the other hand, Victory is a supreme disaster in U.K. The films haven't worked in Australia as well.

Weekend: January 30 - February 1, 2009.
