Bruno Beats Off All Competition

Apologies for the incredibly inappropriate headline, but I couldn’t resist. Sacha Baron Cohen’s Bruno opens with a narrow victory over Ice Age 3 this week with an impressive $30.4 million. Perhaps this means Cohen will drop character and start doing public appearances as himself? The Hurt Locker added 51 screens this week and thus increased the box office by almost 400%, and brought in the second highest per theatre average of the week.

The teen comedy I Love You, Beth Cooper was kept in its place with an unimpressive $5 million opening. Also, The Hangover continues to stay strong, making it the comedy to beat this year.

Here are the Box Office estimates from Box Office Mojo:
