Last weekend's Top Twenty movies



Weekend of 4 - 6 October 2019

Best Movies | Worst Movies

As with the rest of the world, controversial and award-winning Batman-villain origin story Joker went straight to the top, opening with a very healthy per-screen average.

The only other new release to garner a spot on the top 20 was the female-friendly Late Night, coming in at number 16.

Baseball-based drama was at 21, just outside the list. It was always going to be a tough sell for the local market.

On a per-screen basis, Downton Abbey continues to pull them in, hampered overall by a limited number of screens.
