Australian Box Office 30/10/2011: JT not just NSync but In Time for top spot

Even a warrior couldn't beat the star power of this duo
Nov 1, 2011

In Time was the clear winner of the new films this week, earning $2.38m to take out first place at the Australian Box Office. The two others that made the top 10 weren’t a surprise but gained little fanfare, Warrior on $706,000 on mainstream release and Cannes favourite Drive, on $466,000 on limited. Paranormal Activity 3, Midnight in Paris, and Contagion, were strong in positions two, three and four respectively.

This week has an interesting mix of releases, with a few strong contenders that could take top spot. Shakespeare gets the conspiracy theory treatment in Anonymous, Guy Pearce gores up for Guillermo del Toro-produced Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, and fashion photography strikes a pose in Bigpond Adelaide Film Festival-screened Bill Cummingham: New York.
The biggest chances however are rom-com-ensemble I Don’t Know How She Does It and Paul Rudd’s latest offering Our Idiot Brother.
