There’s not much to report on in terms of Australian feature performance at the box office this week. Those who actually saw Playing With Sharks: The Valerie Taylor Story in cinemas are incredibly privileged. It turns out Madman was only able to run it for a week, so it abruptly disappeared after that, and only popped up with minimal advertising.
The Dry has now been in cinemas for 52 weeks, which is a very old-fashioned milestone. It has been in the cinemas for six months although it has only been available in a meaningful number of cinemas for 15 weeks, and has taken 14 weeks to grown from $20 million to $20.74 million. In other words, it has been trundling round remote regions for most of that.
