Total Recall and The Bourne Legacy gave Australian cinema-goers their fix of action as the top two films at the weekend.
A remake of the 1990 movie, Total Recall, which stars Colin Farrell as Douglas Quaid, shot to the top of the box office, taking in $2.337 million in its opening weekend.
The Bourne Legacy, the fourth film in the series based on the Robert Ludlum novels, wasn't far behind with $2.024 million. Matt Damon may have bowed out of the Bourne series, but it doesn't seem to have hurt the franchise.
The Australian production The Sapphires continues to shine in its third week in cinemas. Starring Jessica Mauboy and Bridesmaids' Chris O'Dowd, the film took $1.444 million for third place in figures released by the Motion Picture Distributors Association of Australia.
Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones's latest comedy Hope Spring, about a middle-age couple who endure a week-long counselling session, debuted in 4th place with $1.167 million.
Meanwhile the latest film from Wes Anderson, Moonrise Kingdom, did well in its pre-release, only showing at 50 cinemas, and placed at No. 9 with $127,086.
The film, about a young boy (Jared Gilman) and girl (Kara Hayward), who fall in love and run away together, also starring Bill Murray, Bruce Willis, Edward Norton and Tilda Swinton, officially opens on Thursday.
Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises has been pushed to No. 5, with The Campaign, Magic Mike and Step Up 4: Miami Heat falling one place each to sixth, seventh and eighth spot.
Ice Age 4: Continental Drift has held on after nine weeks to round out the Top 10.
