Writing in the June 19th issue of The Australian, Michael Bodey brings us the following news about “The Great Gatsby” film in Australian cinemas:
“The Great Gatsby” retained second spot at the Australian box office in its third weekend of release, making it Baz Luhrmann’s fourth film in the top 10 highest grossing local films at the Australian box office (not adjusted for inflation). “The Great Gatsby” earned another $2.7 million to bring its Australian total to $19.2m, meaning the film is likely to fall well short of Luhrmann’s most popular film in this country, “Australia”, which earned $37.5m in 2008-09. Gatsby held second spot behind “Fast and Furious 6”.
So … going strong, but not quite up to last time. Coming soon: an updated North American-Australian box office comparison.
