Box Office: Tenet, Babyteeth, Slim Dusty, The Eight Hundred

At least the opening of Melbourne should bring a bit more cash into the system. At the moment the most exciting thing in cinemas is a film about toadstools.

Remarkably, in week nine, Babyteeth is still stable on 13 screens at just over $1000/screen to take the total to $335,000. 

Hearts and Bones has been rattling away quietly for 16 weeks on around 3 screens to make $42,500. Most of its business was probably done in festivals, but the picture is interesting, has a solid take on its photography + ethical dilemma topic, and has Hugo Weaving.
