Box office: Nitram and The Power of the Dog plug on

The antipodean auteurs of Nitram and the Power of the Dog give audiences a rare treat on the big screen, but they will mostly turn up your living room.

No Time to Die is roaring around the Australian multiplexes like a Tonka Toy – bright, shiny and actually not all that big. It has taken $20.7 million in less than two weeks, which is a boot in the kisser for COVID.

It scores again despite a 41% drop, triggered by a loss of 86 screens, down to 722, with$6.5 million last weekend. Eternals bled 70 screens, or a quarter of its total, to score $1.77 million and take the total to $12.84 million. Where have all these screens gone? Are they just being cleaned slowly? This just means more sessions per screen.
