AUSTRALIA: 'Wolverine' Hits $10M; 'Conjuring' Continues Packing Theaters

on August 07, 2013

Wolverinestill.jpgThe Wolverine led a second consecutive weekend in Australia, reaching a $10 million cume after collecting $2.9 million from 581 screens. Hugh Jackman's superhero has found a receptive audience in the star's home country but is unlikely to match the $21.9 million currently reported by Man of Steel's theatrical run. 

The Conjuring posted the weekend's best per-screen average, grossing $7,148 from 170 locations. The $1.2 million weekend take represented a 19% drop in the film's third weekend, taking the total gross to $5.4 million. Third place went to The Heat, another hold over, which grossed $1.1 million over the weekend and reached an $11.7 million total.  The World's End was the best performing new release of the weekend despite coming up with an underwhelming $959k debut from 224 locations. The Way, Way Back opened to a $3,173 average from 124 screens.
