After Marvel’s Thor dominated the Australian box office for two weeks – last weekend bringing in close to $6 million – this weekend Australians looked towards the comedic world of Jackass, helping land the reasonably well received comedy Bad Grandpa to the number one spot with $3.4 million. Thor continued to perform well, however, coming in second with just under $2.8m, while another new entry in Enough Said – starring the late James Gandolfini – came in at number 8 with a little over $480,000.
Gravity continued to perform well on the charts, sitting at number five down from four with over $650,000. This brings the impressive total to close to $20m after seven weeks on the charts. The full top ten is below.
