Australian Box Office Weekend – We Bow To ‘The Vow’

Mirroring the U.S. in many ways, Australia too showed that we’re mad for a bit of schmaltzy love action with THE VOW taking the flag for the 4 day weekend but SAFE HOUSE was right behind it! 3 of the 4 new openers took the top trifecta with only the Australian film ANY QUESTIONS FOR BEN? landing in 6th.
