Disney’s Maleficent also maintained its position at fourth place, bringing in just over $1m in ticket sales across 280 screens taking its total Australian box office takings to $12.705m.

From fifth place down, no movie broke the $1m mark, with action movie Edge of Tomorrow only managing $996,313 across 311 screens.

X-Men: Days of Future Past remains in the top ten after taking in $643,170 across 252 screens taking its total Australian box office to $21.659m.
