>Australian Box Office – Yogi money

>There’ll be no Boo-Boo jokes here about Yogi Bear taking the prime position in this week’s Box Office … we’ll just say we can’t bear to see it at number one. Here are the results of the Australian Box Office for the period January 13-16, 2011.

1. Yogi Bear [381 screens / $10,199]
WKND = $3,885,745 / TOTAL = $3,895,879

2. Tangled [432 screens / $7,780]
WKND = $3,361,124 / TOTAL = $13,354,179

3. Burlesque [204 screens / $9,170]
WKND = $1,870,662 / TOTAL = $1,912,741

4. The King’s Speech [117 screens / $15,500]
WKND = $1,813,459 / TOTAL = $12,368,391

5. The Dilemma [227 screens / $6,287]
WKND = $1,427,223 / TOTAL = $1,427,223

6. Unstoppable [268 screens / $4,605]
WKND = $1,234,111 / TOTAL = $4,498,150

7. Meet The Parents: Little Fockers [312 screens / $3,646]
WKND = $1,137,683 / TOTAL = $17,542,158

8. Gulliver’s Travels [370 screens / $2,888]
WKND = $1,068,509 / TOTAL = $14,038,677

9. Morning Glory [243 screens / $4,224]
WKND = $1,026,372 / TOTAL = $4,120,361

10. The Tourist [248 screens / $2,789]
WKND = $691,585 / TOTAL = $10,331,119

It’s well and truly school holidays time as the top 10 will show you this week. Disney’s Tangled sits comfortably at number two with an overall taking of just over $13 million – not too shabby.

It seems we love Cher a bit more than we’re willing to admit, with Burlesque in third, followed closely by The King’s Speech with an impressive result from only 117 screens.

The real dilemma here though is why The Dilemma is in the top 5, taking close to $1.5 million in its first week.

Meet The Parents: Little Fockers continues to charm audiences and while slipping to seven it’s close to taking $20 million total.

Speaking of bad movies (we kid!), Gulliver’s Travels posted another strong week and sits at eight, followed by Morning Glory and The Tourist to round out the top ten.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (why do these films need such long titles?) are still proving to be a popular choice for holiday entertainment along with Megamind, which is sitting at 13.

It’s good to see low budget film Blue Valentine at 16 and inching ever so closer to the $1 million total.

Will Yogi Bear top the list next week? How about taking the kids out for a pic-a-nic instead folks?
