Box Office – we like our feminist films much better than the US

Is there money in a racing helmet that looks like this? Both Go! and the Kelly Gang need a boost.

Australian film Go! is a bit of a disappointment. Maybe it needed a car-racing dog. $400,000 in a week on 257 screens, though they are mostly daytime so they are hoping for longevity and not triumph against the odds. 

Here is an interesting figure. Little Women is on $11.3 million in three weeks. It has taken $122 million in the US in six weeks. Very roughly it is doing over twice the US business here on a per capita basis since they have fifteen people to every Australian.
