Who were the winners and losers at the box office at the weekend?

Last weekend saw ‘The Help’ continue its US domination, ‘Horrible Bosses’ keep local Aussie flick ‘Red Dog’ off the number one spot and ‘The Inbetweeners Movie’ spend its third weekend on top in the UK.


‘The Help’ has retained its box office lead for the third weekend in a row, making $14.2m for Labour Day weekend.

The Emma Stone-led drama has now passed the $100m mark in terms of US sales, making it one of the highest-grossing summer dramas of all time.


‘Horrible Bosses’ has topped the Australian box office for the second time this week.

The movie generated over $2.1 million in box office sales in its second week at the cinema, leaving Australian-made movie Red Dog in second place again.


‘The Inbetweeners Movie’ has spent its third weekend at the top of the UK box office.

The sitcom spinoff made £3.6 million to easily hold off competition from ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘One Day’.
