The Australia Movie Flops On Opening Day in the US

This confirms my earlier suspicions, the Australia movie flopped at the US box office:

The much-hyped Baz Luhrmann movie Australia has flopped at the US box office on its opening day, according to reports.

Figures quoted from US entertainment newspaper Variety said the movie made a paltry $3.4 million on its Thursday opening in the key market.

That worked out at a per screen average of $1318, compared to the $35,055 per screen earned by teen movie and box office leader, Twilight.  [Sydney Morning Herald]

It will be interesting to see what its total take on its opening weekend is on Monday because I don’t expect its number to improve much once word of mouth about how disappointing the movie is spreads.
