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.
