second-best-exotic-marigold-hotel

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has done it for the second week in a row (it obviously has something to do with the name) and has scored the top spot, grossing $3,867,615.

Following ridiculously closely behind is Australia’s own Margot Robbie and Hollywood superstar Will Smith, who have stolen the hearts of local audiences with Focus, grossing a solid $3,615,636.

Kingsman: The Secret Service and Fifty Shades of Grey are still going well, both receiving $1.3 million at the box office each.

This week marked the release of Seventh Son, Unfinished Business, Project Almanac, all of which made brief appearances in this weeks top 10. It’s also nice to see some Oscar nominated films sustain themselves, with The Theory of Everything and American Sniper nabbing some top 10 spots.

Next week we’ll be treated to the likes of Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, the next edition to the Divergent series Insurgent, Home and Love Is Strange.

We predict that Big Eyes and Insurgent might be able to give The Second Exotic Marigold Hotel a run for its money and nab the top spot.
