Interstellar continues to cruise at high altitude, taking the top spot on the Australian box office for the second weekend in a row.

New comedy Let’s Be Cops blasted Gone Girl from its hold on second spot, taking No. 2 on its opening weekend.

It pushed Gone Girl into third, while World War II drama Fury, starring Brad Pitt, also fell one place to fourth.

Meanwhile My Old Lady, starring Kevin Kline, Maggie Smith and Kristin Scott Thomas, debuted in fifth.

Romantic comedy Love, Rosie dropped one rung down to sixth, as did Pride, starring Bill Nighy, which landed in seventh.

The promise of Keanu Reeves back in action mode with John Wick wasn’t enough to keep it slipping four places to No.8.

The latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation, Best of Me, was also heading south, falling two spots to ninth.

However, animated flick Chaar Sahibzaade remained steady from last weekend and rounded out the ladder in 10th place.
