New to the box office ladder this week was Atomic Blonde.  Debuting at no. 3, it earned $1.75m and can be seen on 436 screens nationwide.  

Also new to the box office ladder is romantic dramedy The Big Sick. Along with Charlize Theron’s action flick in no. 3, this film makes a strong debut in a relatively quiet week in the cinemas.  The Big Sick earned $1.09m and sits at no. 4 at the box office.

Baby Driver took the biggest fall this week, sitting at no. 5 now compared to no. 3 last week.  Earning $845k this week, it has been in cinemas for nearly a month, and has earned almost $12m since its debut.

Next week sees the debut of horror film Annabelle: Creation, and, whilst it hasn’t been getting a lot of buzz, it does star Aussie Miranda Otto.
