Buoyed by favourable reviews and a strong following of the teen slasher franchise, Freddy Vs Jason opened strong to dominate the ranks this weekend.

Alejandro Agresti's Valentin held its ground at number two, with an 11% rise in admissions since last weekend. Bad Boys II slipped to third after opening on top last week. The Italian Job came in on the 18th spot but word of mouth may see its ratings climb. The same may go for local thriller El Polaquito, (pictured) at number 16, which has been on the festival circuit.

Upcoming openers include local docudrama Bar El Chino, the directorial debut of Daniel Burak which screened in the Horizontes Latinos sidebar of San Sebastian last September.
