This weekend, the Australian box office made $11.07 million, up 31% from last week’s $8.4 million.

Topping the box office charts in its opening week was John Wick: Chapter 4 with $6.4 million. In the fourth instalment of the John Wick series, Wick (Keanu Reeves) takes on his most lethal adversaries yet as he seeks out the most powerful players in the underworld, from New York to Paris to Osaka to Berlin.

Shazam! Fury of the Gods fell to second in its second week on screen. The film brought in less than $1 million and continues the story of teenage Billy Batson, who, upon reciting the magic word “SHAZAM!” is transformed into his adult Super Hero alter ego, Shazam.

Falling from second to third is the latest instalment in the Scream franchise, Scream VI, grossing over $771k. Following the latest Ghostface killings, the four survivors leave Woodsboro behind to start a fresh chapter but cannot escape Ghostface’s wrath.

In its fourth week, Creed III, grossed over $500k across 249 screens. As the third instalment in the Creed franchise, the latest film centres on Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan) as he thrives in his career and family life after dominating the boxing world.

In its second week, Living starring Bill Nighy, pulled in over $300k. Set in 1952 London, the film follows Williams, a veteran civil servant who has become a small cog in the bureaucracy of rebuilding post-WWII England.
