The rom-com domination is back! First, it was ‘The Proposal’, now it’s the Katherine Heigl, Gerard Butler duet, ‘The Ugly Truth’. Described as ‘horribly predictable’, it’s no less a fun movie to watch - as seen by its 1st week takings of over $4.5 million. The action-fest, ‘G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra’ is not that far behind, perhaps proving that movie-goers still like seeing their toys come to life! One surprise in the chart is the inclusion of Aussie film, ‘Beautiful Kate’, starring Ben Mendelsohn as a man who revisits his childhood only to uncover some very disturbing secrets about it. Its nearly half-a-million-dollars makes it the biggest opening week for an Aussie film this year. The film also stars Bryan Brown, Rachel Griffiths and newcomer, Maeve Dermody.
