Update: Australian films box office scorecard

29 August, 2013 by IF

Baz Luhrmann now occupies three of the top six slots in the list of Australia’s top-grossing films on home turf.

The director’s The Great Gatsby ranks as the sixth-highest grossing local film of all time, behind Peter Faiman's Crocodile Dundee ($47.7 million), his Australia ($37.5 million),  Chris Noonan's Babe ($36.7 million) George Miller’s Happy Feet ($31.7 million) and Baz's Moulin Rouge!
