Bruno Proves He’s In Fashion; Tops Weekend Box Office

Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Bruno claimed the top spot at the box office this weekend with a $30.4 million intake, defeating Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which finished second and third, respectively.

Bruno, which follows the antics of a flamboyantly gay Austrian fashion reporter, made half of its money Friday, with a stellar $14.4 million intake; its Saturday ($8.8 million) and Sunday ($7.2 million) totals fell dramatically, but the film still staved off the aforementioned blockbusters for the box office crown.

Bruno’s $30.4 million also beat the $26.5 million opening weekend of Cohen’s 2006 comedy, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.
