Sun Sets On The Cinematic Giant That Is RED DOG!

As the dream run of RED DOG now storms through on home entertainment platforms nationwide it’s a good time to touch base and talk about how this little film faired at the Australian Box Office. After 17 weeks in release (just over 4 months!) the film, which is still on screens in selected locations, is finishing her run at around AUD$21.1m.

An outstanding performance and one to be cheered!  In the grand scheme of all time Aussie film performance RED DOG is now the 8th highest grossing Aussie film of all time! BOOM!

RED DOG is now available on DVD, Blu Ray and download.

You should check out the soundtrack too as its a catalogue of classic Aussie rock!
