2016 Australian Box Office Results

Well the results are in for Australia and it was Pixar’s Finding Dory that topped the year with $36.16m or 4.17% of the total national box office of the year. The worst performing release was Jason Statham’s sequel Mechanic: Resurrection that flopped with $10,000 or 0.001%.

Australian films had a diabolical year contributing roughly 1.3% to the national gross with $11.2m for the year. If you take out Hacksaw Ridge it’s $5.23m or 0.6%. Disastrous. Red Dog: True Blue was the biggest winner ($2.28m to date at the end of the year) with The Daughter, Joe Cinque’s Consolation, Embrace, Goldstone, Spin Out, Warren Miller and Chasing Great following with less than stellar results .
