Australian box office report: Doctor Strange makes mincemeat of the competition, almost at $30 mill

Australia’s top five at the box office stayed stable this week, with Downton Abbey: A New Era and The Lost City consistently popular alongside new war drama Operation Mincemeat, which has a cumulative total of $1.1 million so far.  A few new Indian comedies entered our top ten, Sarkaru Vaari Paata and Saunkan Saunkne both earning just over $380k.

But Marvel’s Doctor Strange sequel is still making mincemeat of the May box office, with a further $8.6 million dollars bringing its second week total to almost $30 million. Seems a whole new cumberBatch of Marvel fans are either waiting for quieter cinemas or seeing the Doctor again.
