Box office: Johnny English Strikes Again… Again

Johnny English retains top spot to begin the holidays.

The start of the school holidays saw a 13% boost for the Australian box office leading to a $14.90m weekend.

The biggest winner was Smallfoot, which went from sixth place to second after getting close to the two million mark.

Johnny English Strikes Again retained top spot in its second week of release experiencing only an 11% decrease from its opening weekend.

There were two new entries this week with Night School joining Smallfoot in the top five.

Crazy Rich Asians has ended its run in the top five after five weeks dropping to sixth spot despite making $1.20m, bringing its current Australian total to $21.17m.
