Australian Box Office Report : Kapow! Bam! Splat!

Hello fellow cinephiles.

Look, I didn’t quite get the margins right with Labyrinth Of Lies or Sherpa  as contenders for the number one spot, but boy did Zootopia pick up its game – shifting My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 to third spot.

There haven’t been many other changes we know about, so expect some downsizing. The major one is from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.  As we can see here, it has dropped  to $4.5 compared  to its cool $13.1 million the week before.

It’ll be interesting to see how long DC’s superpowered romp maintains its spot compared to this year’s other superhero movies. Deadpool stayed at the top for quite some time and Marvels Captain America: Civil War seems like it’ll land next month with a pretty hefty punch.
