Mary Sum Says: Three strong openings and two strong holdovers pushed the top 20 up by 40% to $16 m for the week, with Insurgent at the top on $5 m. Big Eyes didn’t grab a big take but screen averages (on 43) were dead average for the top 20 at $5,319. Other openers include Lost and Love (M, Chinalion) with $67,522 on 9; Love Is Strange (M, Rialto) with $60,025 in 17; ’71 (MA15+, EOne) with $37,479 on 7. #Figures in [brackets] indicate number of screens and average; takings are in Aus dollars.
