This Week at the Box Office: Miss Phryne Fisher meets the big screen!

What do you get when you combine old-world glam with international adventure? A box office hit.

This week, everyone’s favourite glamorous detective debuts at the third spot in the charts. Showing on 376 screens, Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears cracked a million in its first weekend! The most glamorous detective on screen brought in $1,040,893 in its first weekend in the charts. While the screen average isn’t that stellar ($2,768 per screen, across a pretty generous 376 screens), breaking a mill in your first week is nothing to sneeze at, and we hope to see this Aussie gem up the top of the charts for a few weeks yet.
