'Zookeeper' still
Zookeeper has topped the Australian box office in its opening weekend.

The comedy film, which stars Kevin James as an animal keeper determined to win back his ex-girlfriend, took an estimated domestic total of almost $1.8 million, knocking last week's number one Horrible Bosses down to second spot.

In fourth spot is Emma Stone film The Help, followed by Ryan Reynolds in The Change-Up, which made $1,118,535 in ticket sales.

Other movies featured in the top ten this weekend include Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Final Destination 5 and The Smurfs.
