Australian Box Office Report: Beauty and the Beast remains a monster of a hit for the school holidays

Not surprising that the great reviews, great publicity and release around the school holiday period for Beauty And The Beast has earned this another no. 1 spot for this week.  Generating $4.96m, it has also made a total of $34m since its premiere.  It’s already the biggest release of the year so far, and has even beaten Disney’s biggest earner in 2016, Finding Dory, which made $32.5 million. Total earnings for Star Wars: Rouge One was split between 2016 and 2017, due to its release date.... Continue Reading

Australian Box Office Report: Beauty and the Beast keeps its rose alive at the top of the ladder

Disney’s new live action version of Beauty And The Beast is at the top of the box office ladder again this week. Although it only made $7.74m this time around (last week it made $13m), its total earnings since its premiere is $26.15m, and, at the rate it’s travelling, is now likely to be one of the top 10 films of 2017....

Australian Box Office Report: Beauty and the Beast achieves the biggest box office opening of the year to date

There has been a lot of movement on the charts this week, thanks to a crowded pile of new entries into cinemas over the weekend. The highly anticipated Disney remake Beauty and the Beast went straight to the top of the ladder.  It sits comfortably at no. 1, having earned $13.14m, giving it the biggest premiere weekend at the box office since Rogue One: A Star Wars Story made $14.75m in its opening week in December last year....

Australian Box Office Report: Kong: Skull Island proves king of the box office over Marvel for another week

It appears there’s no stopping the mighty King Kong, as Kong: Skull Island topped the box office for the second week in a row, earning $3.13m. The number of screens this film is available (nationally) has dropped from 523 last week to 395 this week, so we might see this one slip a little after the coming weekend.... Continue Reading

Australian Box Office Report: Logan slashes right through to the top of the ladder

It should come as little surprise that the highly-anticipated “final” Wolverine film, Logan, should do so well in its premiere week. The film shot straight up to no. 1 at the box office and earneda massive  $7.85m in the process.  This is Hugh Jackman’s last foray as Logan/Wolverine, and it’s been well reported that he and director James Mangold wanted to give the character a send-off worthy of a superhero. It’s also Patrick Stewart’s way of performing his swan song for Charles Xavier, and, for the next generation, an introduction to new lil’ mutant in Dafne Keen, who plays Wolverine Jr., Laura....

Australian Box Office Report: Hidden Figures sits sky high on ladder for 2nd week in a row

Despite not winning anything of its three Oscar Nominations, Hidden Figures still topped the week’s box office ladder, earning $2.75m. Sitting in the top spot for the 2nd week in a row is a good place for this film to be in, as people find out more and more about the three women involved in the NASA space program in its infancy, particularly in a time when women, let alone African American women, were so undervalued in all facets of American life....

Australian Box Office Report: Fifty Shades Darker hits all the right buttons this week, pushing Lion off its perch

You know that the natural order of the world has been restored when a film featuring sexy time does better than a film about a man searching for his birth mother. Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey, premiered in theatres this weekend and promptly took its place at the top of the box office charts, bringing in an impressive $6.16m in its opening week. It’s available at just over 600 screens nationwide, putting it in the same ballpark as Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them (November 2016) and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (released December 2016)....
