Update: Australian films released in the US
Box Office Mojo has updated its list of the top-grossing films released in the US this year, which includes seven Australian titles.
Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby is the stand-out, raking in $US144.8 million in the US and a worldwide total of $348.8 million.
Wayne Blair's The Sapphires fetched $2.5 million in the US and $20.5 million globally, according to Box Office Mojo.
Cate Shortland’s Lore earned $970,000 in the US, an impressive total for a German-language title.
Adore, French director Anne Fontaine’s first English-language film, took a disappointing $302,000. Hopscotch eOne will launch the romantic drama starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright as lifelong friends who fall in love with each other’s sons in November, retitled Adoration.
Justin McMillan and Christopher Nelius' Storm Surfers 3D collected $117,000 and Kieran Darcy-Smith's Wish You Were Here made $46,000.
Several Aussie films had a limited theatrical release as a platform for DVD and Video-on-Demand so their B.O. tallies are modest and not a reliable indicator of US revenues.
They include P.J. Hogan's Mental, which grossed about $18,000, and the Cairnes brothers' 100 Bloody Acres which made around $7,000. Ben Nott and Morgan O'Neill's Drift took a similar route but no figure was reported.
