Australian Box Office Report: The X- Men take their place at the top

Hi Folks,

We see a few changes this week with regards to #1. X-Men: Apocalypse sits at the top spot with $6.4 million – a pretty good turnout but not the same figures as Captain America: Civil War or even Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice on their openings.

In second place we have The Angry Birds Movie, the comedy-adventure based on the video game. The reviews so far have been quite positive. I’ll have to check it out.

The rest of the list falls the same as last week:
