>Australian Box Office – Prima ballerina

>We hope you don’t mind if we say it, but your Box Office is looking very pretty this week. Sure there’s the occasional blemish – Yogi Bear taking number five, The Dilemma holding on at 10 – but on the whole we think your taste this week is as “perfect” as Nina’s Black Swan. Well, at least in comparison to past weeks.

Here are the results of the Australian Box Office for the period January 27-30, 2011.

1. Black Swan [199 screens / $10,654]
WKND = $2,120,055 / TOTAL = $6,181,125

2. True Grit [234 screens / $8,328]
WKND = $1,948,743 / TOTAL = $2,426,828

3. The Green Hornet [287 screens / $6,556]
WKND = $1,881,441 / TOTAL = $6,466,943

4. The King’s Speech [192 screens / $8,745]
WKND = $1,678,969 / TOTAL = $18,419,317

5. Yogi Bear [385 screens / $4,337]
WKND = $1,669,613 / TOTAL = $12,323,335

6. Tangled [443 screens / $3,170]
WKND = $1,404,268 / TOTAL = $20,573,609

7. The Fighter [205 screens / $5,428]
WKND = $1,112,820 / TOTAL = $3,538,469

8. How Do You Know [167 screens / $5,805]
WKND = $969,492 / TOTAL = $1,282,382

9. Burlesque [202 screens / $4,344]
WKND = $877,539 / TOTAL = $5,740,653

10. The Dilemma [183 screens / $1,692]
WKND = $309,645 / TOTAL = $3,398,017

We’ve flocked to the cinemas to catch the recent Oscar nominees, with Black Swan, True Grit and The King’s Speech proving favourites. Marky Mark’s The Fighter seems to have left less of an impression on Aussie audiences sitting at seven.

The Green Hornet has posted another great week offering a bit of variety amongst the serious Oscar contenders and kids’ school holiday films.

New romantic comedy – though it is neither romantic nor funny – How Do You Know, proves Australians don’t care about bad grammar and sits at eight in its first week taking close to $1 million.

Looking just outside of the top 10, it’s a who’s who of end-of-2010 films: Gulliver’s Travels, Meet the Parents: Little Fockers, The Tourist and Tron: Legacy amongst others. The one new entry is Mike Leigh’s Another Year; playing in limited release on 30 screens it took just over $150,000.

If they aren’t back already most kids return to school this week, which should provide a bit of a change in the box office next week – bye, bye Yogi!
