The year's most awaited romantic comedy, Love Actually had a decent start at the Hungarian box office, debuting in second place. With nearly thirty thousand admissions the film was no real competition for Finding Nemo and also failed to fare better than previous Richard Curtis films, Notting Hill or Bridget Jones's Diary.
Failing to make any kind of impact on the Hungarian audiences were last week's other releases, Lars von Trier's long-awaited Dogville and Boaz Yakin's Uptown Girls. Only the latter made the top ten with a downbeat screen average of $933.
The Hungarian subway thriller, Kontroll is still going strong towards the one hundred thousand admissions mark and looks like repeating the success of Gabor Herendi's A Kind Of America.
