Remember how we figured that Elvis needed to make $350m in six weeks around the world to break even? Over four weeks, it has taken $272m, so it is just under that target, and looks likely to reach the magic number by the end of week seven. So far, the Australian contribution has been $24.64m in a month. It took a bump after week two as the kids went back to school, and is declining pretty slowly with a gentle loss of screens.
We have been barracking quietly for Falling for Figaro, made by the Australian combo of Ben Lewin and Judi Levine, with music by Cezary Skubiszewski, and pumped up by hearty Scots, opera and Joanna Lumley.
