It's been another crazy week in the land of movie ticket receipts as the new Judd Apatow/ Seth Rogen/ Jonah Hill comedy Funny People
was released and instantly went to number one.
Last week number one, kid's action comedy G-Force
tumbled down behind The Boy Who Lived, who, despite all the odds and fairly 'meh' reviews, continues to hang on. Question is, with Potter VI: Snoggings and Hobgoblins
manage to catch up with the rampant beast that is Transformers: Robots With No Plot
? At almost $400 million, Michael Bay's cinematic cancer is far and away the year's most profitable film.
Other surprises include Fox's new CGI-heavy comedy Aliens in the Attic
splashing into a lowly fifth place (c'mon kids! It's got Ashley Tisdale from High School Musical
!) and both The Hangover
and The Proposal
continuing to remain inside the top ten. The summer of sleeper hits seems to be well and truly here.
