Amy Schumer’s comedy Trainwreck is anything but after claiming the number one spot at the Australian box office.
Trainwreck grossed $3.180 million over the weekend according to Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.
It was enough to send Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, which pulled $2.687 million, into a battle for second with Marvel superhero flick The Fantastic Four.
Starring Michael B Jordan, Miles Teller, Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, Fantastic Four was third with $2.619 million in takings on its first weekend in Australian cinemas.
It wasn’t the greatest start for The Fantastic Four but it was enough to eclipse Aussie movie Last Cab To Darwin ($1.148 million), which was also released last week.
Another super hero Ant Man is starting to lose its appeal.
It was fifth with $905,758 in takings while the opening weekend of the Japanese animated feature film Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection `F’ ($838,281) was sixth.
The remainder of the top 10 was filled with movies which are slowly sliding south.
Paper Towns ($286,488) was seventh, Inside Out ($273,333) was eighth while Minions ($202,706) and Mr Holmes ($192,221) were ninth and tenth respectively.
