Total box office for the past weekend for the top 20 movies was $16.67m, up 5% on the previous weekend with two major releases close to $5m or better.
#1 Wonder Woman $5.70m
A very strong second weekend performance from the box office champ with takings down only 16% from its opening. The film disappeared off 187 screens to 420, yet the screen average remained a healthy $13,589, which is up over $2,000 per screen from the opening weekend.
#2 The Mummy $4.64m
The Tom Cruise movie has had a troubled opening in some markets, yet it wrote close to $5m across the weekend in Australia from 471 screens with a screen average of $9,871.
#3 Baywatch $2.18m
The beach frolics attracted a reasonable crowd for its second weekend with the Paramount release steady on 403 screens with a screen average just over $5,000. The movie has passed $7m and with the additional holiday Monday yet to be factored into these numbers it should be pushing above $8m as we publish this data.
#4 Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales $1.54m
Screen average was just under $5,000 for its third weekend as the screens dropped from 454 to 322. To date the movie has grossed $12.33m.
