The Dry and Penguin Bloom have now turned into a Demon Duo, turning heads in the multiplex foyers to local stars and local stories.

Penguin Bloom came through with $1.51m on its first weekend to take top spot, running on 398 screens in 300 cinemas. The opening day box office was $289k, so the total right now is running $1.70m. The Dry did significantly better with $2.61m on its first weekend so Penguin Bloom may have more trouble reaching $10m as the holidays finish and more films arrive to compete.
