Box Office: 2 Frozen 2 Furious

This week in the box office promises old school mysteries and frosty adventures. How did Australian films do?

In case you or your child needs a cool down over the summer months, Frozen 2 has debuted, unsurprisingly, at the top of the charts! And what a chart-topper it is. Showing on a monstrous 768 screens, the frosty film brought in a diabolical $12,666 per screen. Given that the film is smashing box office records the world over, a debut weekend in Australia of $9,727,620 is, I guess, not unexpected – in fact, the numbers are slightly lower than the Joker‘s debut weekend. Still, I predict that this one will stick around as the summer holidays kick off. In fact, I’m going to guess it takes six weeks for another film to dethrone our seasonal princesses, and take the top spot in the charts. Let’s check back in the new year to see if I got close.
