Box Office: attacked by a lockdown which doesn’t exist

While 2021 opened with an Australian bang, there is nothing in the kitty for 2022. The tiny release I’m Wanita added $320 off three screens to reach $12,000 while Shane dropped 89 of its 90 screens to make $103 on the weekend.

Gold had a two week space before Stan starts streaming – and the company advertised it even before it hit the cinemas. The fact that Madman got anyone to run the film is a tribute to its tenacity. It appeared on 19 screens, made$3,600 over the weekend, and now has a total of $6,100. (All figures in this article are in AU$, adjusted for inflation where necessary.)
