    Sony has taken Warner Bros’ thunder for a second consecutive week, with its new Bad Boys film coming in at #1. The new film in the franchise is directed by Adil and Bilall, who have a history with Warner Bros. as well, as their finished Batgirl film was infamously shelved as a $90 million tax write-off.

    The directing duo are also rumoured to be in talks with Marvel to direct the upcoming fourth Spider-Man film, starring Tom Holland. Coming in first place this week, Bad Boys: Ride or Die took $4,212,396 in its first week, averaging $7,604 over 554 screens.

Coming in second place this week, The Garfield Movie took $2,163,094 in its second week, averaging $5,421 over 399 screens.

    Total Australian Box Office gross to date: $5,698,216

    Warner Bros’ Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is its newest entry into the Australian-set, post-apocalyptic franchise. Directed by George Miller, the film is a prequel to 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, a film that was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won 6 of them. In a running theme for the 2024 box office, this film was also partially shot in Australia, with some filming taking place in the small NSW towns of Hay and Silverton.

Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel, presided over by the Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants fight for dominance, Furiosa soon finds herself in a nonstop battle to make her way home.
