The latest Norwegian addition to the originally Danish Olsen Gang movies, The Young Olsen Gang Rocks It, easily muscled The Last Samurai from the top spot with a strong 990 screen average on its high 61 prints.

The film follows last year's most successful local release in Nordisk Film's hit franchise. Along with the Tom Cruise vehicle, Petter Naess' youth film Just Bea and The Return Of The King all dropped some 30% on that account, while the new release of Lost In Translation made it into fifth with a 510 screen average on its 13 prints.

In total admissions were down some 70,000 from the same period last year, a dip that this week's other two releases The Dreamers and Intermission could have used as they disappointed - opening on 12th and 16th respectively.
