Australia Movie Places 5th in US Box Office Sales

After its poor opening day, the Australia movie staring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman continued to do poorly the rest of the weekend finishing fifth and only making nearly $15,000,000 for a movie that cost a $130 million US dollars to make.  To put that in perspective Twilight which is in its second week made nearly double the amount of money Australia made with a budget of only $37 million US dollars.
