Bruno Struts To Double Win With U.k. Number One
Sacha Baron Cohen's hit movie BRUNO is dominating on both sides of the Atlantic - it has knocked Ice Age: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS off the top of the U.K. box office charts following a similar feat in the U.S.
The comedy, based on Cohen's outrageous gay Austrian fashionista, took nearly $7.5 million (£5 million) in its first weekend, while the third instalment of the Ice Age franchise followed closely behind with $7.1 million (£4.8 million).
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which was officially named the biggest film of 2009 so far last week (07Jul09), came in at number three with $2.2 million (£1.45 million), while The Hangover took $1.8 million (£1.23 million).
Johnny Depp's Public Enemies rounded out the top five, grossing $1.6 million (£1.04 million).
The only other new entry to make the U.K. top 10 was Bollywood movie Shortkut, which debuted in 10th place
