Australian Box Office: The jackasses shall inherit the earth

Despite several new films opening last week the box office results for the period November 11-14 are in and it seems we still love watching movies where people get hurt and invent websites; Jackass 3D and The Social Network top the list.

1. Jackass 3D [198 screens / $9,682]
WKND = $1,917,056 / TOTAL = $6,599, 246

2. The Social Network [291 screens / $5,004]
WKND = $1,456,258 / TOTAL = $8,124,344

3. Skyline [181 screens / $6,889]
WKND = $1,246, 836 / TOTAL = $1,261,676

4. RED [244 screens / $4,397]
WKND = $1,072,884 / TOTAL = $5,542,854

5. Life As We Know It [242 screens / $2,554]
WKND = $617,974 / TOTAL = $6,314,984

6. Wild Target [258 screens / $2,162]
WKND = $557,725 / TOTAL = $580,299

7. The American [57 / $6,591]
WKND = $375,707 / TOTAL = $379,899

8. Paranormal Activity 2 [187 screens / $1,939]
WKND = $362,637 / TOTAL = $6,522,315

9. The Town [183 screens / $1,891]
WKND = $ 346,032 / TOTAL = $7, 013,033

10. Eat Pray Love [189 screens / $1,353]
WKND = $255,748 / TOTAL = $11,616,343

George Clooney’s new film The American posted a good first weekend considering its limited screens, while Hollywood sci-fi Skyline also opened strong. New Mexploitation film Machete failed to make the top 10 with only $149,881 on 50 screens, and the little indie that could, Winter’s Bone, is sitting at number 15 with only $80,417 on 12 screens. We urge you to find one of those 12 screens and see Winter’s Bone, one of the best films of the year. It’s also another disappointing week for Aussie horror The Loved Ones, sitting at number 18 with $60,343 on 89 screens.

With the new Harry Potter film opening this coming Thursday, you can be assured that everyone’s favourite boy wizard will open at number one and – fingers crossed – push Eat Pray Love out of the top 10. We’re not mad Australia, but spending $11,616,343 to see Julia Roberts eat some pasta seems a little absurd.
