Australian Box Office Report: Spider-Man: Homecoming sticks to the top of the chart

It’s been a good fortnight for Spider-Man: Homecoming.  Debuting in cinemas last week, it remains at the top of the box office ladder for the 2nd week in a row.  This week it has posted $4.92m in earnings.  Although it’s about half of what it opened with last week (a little over $10m), it still screened at more than 600 theatres nationally, and managed a screen average of nearly $8,000. 

New release Baby Driver also did fairly well, all things considered.  Although it couldn’t get past the Spider-Man juggernaut, it did make $4.47m to get it to 2nd on the box office.  It also earned the most successful screen average on the list with $10,867.

Movements were slight in the top 5 titles. Despicable Me 3 went from 2nd spot to the 3rd this week, earning $3.02m.  After just over a month in cinemas, it has now made almost $30m, and by the end of this week, will have made more than Wonder Woman.  

Cars 3 also dropped one spot this week, from no. 3 last week to no. 4 this week, earning $1.53m.  Like Despicable Me 3it has also been in cinemas for about a month, and has earned $11.76m to date.

She believed she could, so she did.  Wonder Woman made such an impact to popular culture this year that she has remained, after 7 weeks, in the top 10 of the box office.  This week, she went from no. 4 to no. 5, and made $807k.  Although the shine might be dimming from this film somewhat, it’s already made $30m to date, and is currently available on more than 200 screens nationally.

World War II epic Dunkirk opens this weekend and should make an appearance on the top 10 list. It’s been highly anticipated, and may offer director Christopher Nolan a few award nominations.
