This week Babyteeth reaches the Australian silver screen – but how did the spike in coronavirus cases affect its premiere?

This week at the box office, Shannon Murphy’s hotly anticipated debut feature, the bittersweet coming of age film Babyteeth, premieres on 46 screens. Babyteeth has been well-received by critics, and the general public seem to be voting with their feet: the film brought in an average of $1,419 per screen, which rivals any film in the box office charts, for a total taking of $65,277.
There was one other new release in the charts this week, and it was also well received. The Burnt Orange Heresy premiered on 81 screens, and brought in a screen average of $1,102, for a total taking of $89.290 in its debut weekend.
