Box Office: The War with Grandpa fights its way to #1

The War with Grandpa

• The film was the only new entry in the top five this week and bumped out Trolls World Tour

The War with Grandpa starring Robert De Niro has rocketed to the #1 spot of the Australian box office after a robust opening weekend which saw the film rake in $942,015. This was more than double any other film in Australia over the weekend but the total was not enough to stop the domestic box office from declining by 2% after making a $3.28m total.

The film was the only new entry in the top five this week and bumped out Trolls World Tour which slipped to #6 after 15 weeks of release after making $8.57m.
