Starring Bradley Cooper, Abbie Cornish, Anna Friel, and Robert De Niro, Neil Burger's thriller Limitless topped the U.S. and Canada box office for the sixth straight day on Wednesday, March 23, even though it was down by 21 percent. Limitless grossed $1.6 million according to Box Office Mojo.

More interesting is probably the fact that Matt Damon's The Adjustment Bureau passed the $50m milestone yesterday after earning $465k in North America. Domestic total after 20 days: $50.14m. Overseas, Damon's thriller has pulled in $32 million up to March 20. With $6.65 million, the UK is the film's biggest international market to date, followed by Australia, Russia, and Spain.

Matthew McConaughey's The Lincoln Lawyer held steady at no. 2 on Wednesday, with $1.09 million, despite also suffering at 21 percent drop. Also in the cast of the Brad Furman-directed crime drama: Ryan Phillippe, Marisa Tomei, Josh Lucas, William H. Macy, John Leguizamo, and Michael Peña.

Featuring Aaron Eckhart, Ramon Rodriguez, Gino Anthony Pesi, Cory Hardrict, Ne-Yo, Michelle Rodriguez, and Michael Peña, Battle: Los Angeles took in $1 million at no. 3.

Up one spot at no. 4, Gore Verbinski's Rango, featuring the voices of Johnny Depp, Isla Fischer, and Abigail Breslin, collected $981k.

Down one spot at no. 5, Greg Mottola's Paul, featuring Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Jane Lynch, Jason Bateman, Sigourney Weaver, and Blythe Danner, drew $910k – thus falling below the $1m-per-day mark on Day 6.

Directed by Twilight's Catherine Hardwicke, and starring Amanda Seyfried and Gary Oldman, Red Riding Hood brought in $507k at no. 6.

Next in line were The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, and Terence Stamp, with $465k at no. 7 and Disney's animated 3D feature Mars Needs Moms with $372k at no. 8.

Rounding out the top twelve were Owen Wilson-Jason Sudeikis' Hall Pass with $254k, Alex Pettyfer-Vanessa Hudgens' Beastly with $208k, Colin Firth-Geoffrey Rush's The King's Speech with $194k, and Gnomeo & Juliet, back among the top twelve, with $184k.

Gone from the top twelve on Wednesday: Jennifer Aniston-Adam Sandler's Just Go with It.

Among the top-twelve movies, Limitless had the highest per-theater average, $581. Gnomeo & Juliet had the lowest, $106.

Also among the top-twelve, Beastly posted the steepest Tuesday-to-Wednesday drop-off rate, -24 percent. Gnomeo & Juliet posted the lowest, -2 percent.
