Box Office: Aussie movie goers flock to see Rams

• Overall the box office saw a 4% increase in revenue, making a total of $2.57m.

The Australian box office has undertaken a drastic makeover this past weekend with three new releases joining the top five.

The freshman entries are led by the Australian flick Rams which stars screen legends, Sam Neill and Michael Caton. The other new entries are the supernatural film The Craft: Legacy and the horror film The Empty Man.

The movies to drop out of the top five are Never Too Late and Tenet which finally ended its run in the top five after 10 weeks of release and amassing $11.99m to date (the highest since Covid-19 lockdowns were lifted).
