The new Vin diesel action film Bloodshot has topped a quiet weekend at the Australian box office which declined 22% on last weekend’s revenue after making a total of $6.14m.
This decline is despite three new releases joining the top five of the Australian box office this week with the aforementioned Bloodshot joined by Military Wives and Chal Mera Putt 2. Popular anime franchise My Hero Academia’s film My Hero Academia: Hero’s Rising just missed out after making $358,967.
The two films to drop out of the top five where The Call of the Wild which made $2.47m over four weeks of release to date, and the highest grossing Australian film of the year Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears which has made $2.88m over three weeks.
#1 Bloodshot $1.41m

#2 The Invisible Man $1.08m
