The Oz Box Office Wrap Up
with Sean Lynch
As it was pretty much all across the globe, the latest franchise epic The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 took out the #1 spot at the Australian Box Office - thanks in part to fandom, but also due to taking up most of the screens on offer across the country (upwards of 570 screens if we are getting specific).
As is often becoming the theme with the Australian Box Office, there's a really strong showing from smaller films which are holding up the bottom end of the charts. Maps to the Stars (showing on just two screens) took $14,386, while the excellent The Drop took over $100,000 on 42 screens.
Sadly the movie of the year, Whiplash, continues to struggle showing on just 30+ screens, after five weeks it's only JUST cracked the half a million mark. It deserves to have more people see it.
