Puss in Boots stomps on Twilight

The first of the holiday season movies have ended Breaking Dawn's run at the top of the Australian box office.
Though Puss in Boots has managed to edge out New Year's Eve in their debut weekend in cinemas, with the animated cat's tale taking $2.91 million against the rom-com's $2.64m, figures from the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia show.

They pushed the latest Twilight movie into third place after three weeks of top billing, also dropping Adam Sandler's comedy Jack and Jill and British teen comedy The Inbetweeners down two places to fourth and fifth, respectively.

Seasonal animation Arthur Christmas has stayed steady in sixth place while George Clooney's political thriller The Ides of March dropped two places to number seven.

Sword-and-sandals spectacular Immortals fell four places to eighth position, Brad Pitt's baseball flick Moneyball dropped two places to ninth, and Woody Allen's comedy Midnight in Paris rounds out the Top Ten, still packing them in after eight weeks in release.
