Trolls World Tour is the new #1 at the Australian box office after a slow burn of six weeks (three weeks of pre-release and second week of release) has led the film to a total of $2.91m.
The film knocks off Christopher Nolan‘s Tenet which has dominated the Australian box office since its release five weeks ago amassing a total of $9.84m making it the most successful film since cinemas began to reopen.
The only ‘new’ release to make the top five this week is Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi which has continued the original trilogy’s strong performance in recent months with each film making the top five.
Overall, the Australian box office has declined 4% after generating $3.52m in revenue.
