Australian box office report: Maverick still on Top, almost catching up to Doctor Strange’s total


In its second week of release, Top Gun: Maverick has almost sped forward to overtake Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘s cumulative total: both films have now racked up over $36 million, with Maverick nabbing another $16 million this week to Strange‘s weaker $1.3 million.

Downton Abbey: A New Era was finally knocked down a peg after six weeks: by Tamil-language newcomer Vikram, which took almost $800k in its opening week.
