With 2 new releases this weekend, the Australian box office has picked up some speed.
In first was Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, enjoying a solid $3.6 million in its debut weekend. In second was Straight Outta Compton enjoying a great second weekend gross of $2.2 million. In third was new release Pixels, debuting with a mediocre $2 million. Opening against Maze Runner could have hurt it plus the fact that the film has been released in Australia 2 months after the US, which would have severely hurt it given that people have been sitting on the bad reviews for 2 months and some people would have pirated the film. In fourth was A Walk in the Woods making $0.3 million and rounding out the top 5 was The Gift making $0.3 million.
- Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials- $3.6 million.
- Straight Outta Compton- $2.2 million.
- Pixels- $2 million.
- A Walk in the Woods- $0.3 million.
- The Gift- $0.3 million.
