By
Ben Affleck's Argo has held its position at the top of the Australian box office charts.

The political thriller's takings only dropped by 7%, as it earned another $1.81 million over the weekend.


Elsewhere in the charts, there are three new entries.

Kirsten Dunst and Isla Fisher's comedy Bachelorette enters the standings in second place, while End of Watch, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, debuts in third place.
