The Oz Box Office Wrap Up
with Sean Lynch
Forget the fact that the excellent comedy The Inbetweeners 2 was the #1 movie at the Australian Box Office this week, forget about Guardians of the Galaxy continuing its stellar run at the top end of the chart - this week it was all about Doctor Who.
Bare in mind, unlike last years The Day Of The Doctor, "Deep Breath" wasn't a special event film... it was simply the Series 8 premiere. Yet, somehow, it managed to rake in a whopping $600k+ across just under 150 screens. It was equally successful in the UK where it managed to hit No. 8 in the UK cinema box office for the weekend and took in just over £500,000.
If a TV show can make that much on the big screen, imagine what an actual Doctor Who movie could do.
Further more... imagine if cinemas started airing Game of Thrones episodes in cinemas? Or Breaking Bad? Could cinema become the next step for television... thus saving both mediums from the extinction on the horizon caused by streaming services and torrenting?
