Australian Box Office Report: It’s war as Apes edges out Dunkirk

Whilst not opening to as much as last week’s no. 1 film, War For The Planet Of The Apes, the third in the franchise, managed to wipe out last week’s top flick in only its 2nd week in cinemas. War For The Planet Of The Apes earned $4.07m in its opening week, which just pushed last week’s no. 1 film, Dunkirk, into 2nd place, earning $3.92m this week. ... Continue Reading

It’s a sign of the times that the school holidays (and the USA’s summer blockbuster season) are upon us, as Transformers: The Last Knight tops the chart this week, making $4.46m in the process. It’s not a particularly impressive sum, however – the amount is the smallest opening weekend for a #1 film since King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword opened in theatres over a month ago.  Our reviewer didn’t love it, nor did many others worldwide, and it had the lowest debut of the series in the USA.  But still enough to top the charts in both territories.
