Comedy Horrible Bosses opened very well to $3.17 million, but Aussie heart-warmer Red Dog is doing extremely well to make almost $2 million in its fourth week. The only other debutante to make the top 10 this week was Priest, but Edinburgh Film Festival opener The Guard and Beginners were eleventh and twelfth respectively as a result of limited screens.
This week’s releases include Bollywood’s Bodyguard, the fifth instalment of the Final Destination franchise, and Anne Hathaway/Jim Sturgess romantic drama One Day. Chalet Girl will pull in many a Gossip Girl fan with Ed Westwick’s star role, while The Help will appeal to those wanting a strong drama.
