Australian Box Office Report: Captain America is still sailing strong

Hi Folks,

After seeing Captain American: Civil War last week, I too, am on a team Cap bandwagon. If you haven’t, It’s an all-round pleasure.

Lets get to it.

Cap and co. are still on top, but in their second week has seen them drop a little. However, they still stand strong at $6 million (slightly better than Batman’s 4 million second week).

I have also heard that Black Widow is getting her own film, can’t wait! I bring this up, mainly as a lack of Black Widow was my only gripe with Civil War.

Bad Neighbours 2 has pushed The Jungle Book right out of second place and is doing extremely well, racking up $2 million for its opening week.

The other newbies to poll this week are, Florence Foster Jenkins, Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant’s new operatic comedy at #5, the bio- drama The Man Who Knew Infinity at #7 and Shakespeare Live! From the RSC clocking in at #10. 

Here’s the ladder:
