Wolverine continues it's box office domination as it opens at number one in Australia.

The movie grossed over $6.6 million in it's opening weekend to topple Fast & Furious, which was a distant second grossing just over $1 million.

Early worries that the movie could under-perform at the box office because of last month's internet have disappeared as the film has grossed over $168 million in it's opening week.

Defiance was the only other new entry in the top ten this week. The film, which stars Daniel Craig, follows the true story of the Bielski brothers during the Second World War.

17 Again stayed inside the top five for another week at four while there was no change at five for The Boy In the Stripped Pyjamas.
