Yeah yeah it’s me again with an update on what’s happening in the world of The Rover Box Office.  Last night the Thursday figures came out for Australia.  According to UrbanCine it’s currently $377,169.  And not making excuses, but how is the general public supposed to go and see this film when my current cinema has released it for one screening per day – in the middle of the day – do they think fanboys are unemployed?

Anyway that’s the only negative thing I will say.  From figures at Box Office Mojo:

The Aussie figures are lagging so here’s my update on what its current box office is:


US – $562,440
Australia – $377,169
France – $204,750
Malaysia – $32,886

Current total – $1,196,852

As David mentioned – it’s a bubbler!

    These session times are really annoying me. I am actually taking a day off to go and see it today before I loose my chance completely. It is making my blood boil ( bubbler?) at the lack of support the movie houses are giving such a lorded Aussie film.
    Anyway. At least I am getting to see it. I am sure there are many that will miss out completly

    I agree with you Maria. Being a movie for adults, the majority work 9-5 jobs.

    Carmel, so glad that you are finally getting to see it. Enjoy your day off.

    I’m counting myself as one of the lucky ones as having choices about when to see this movie. It’s playing at an ‘arthouse’ theatre (a tiny 40 seater, but with good sound and visuals) and a choice of 3 day sessions and two night sessions, which considering where I live (Perth pretends to be a city, but it’s really a big town with tall buildings and very little in the way of culture) and ‘The Rover’s’ indie status, is pretty good. The day session I went to had tiny audience; myself, two middle-aged women, a thirty-something-ish woman and a middle-aged man. Eclectic mix. It’s a very strange thing that this film isn’t receiving more attention here in Aus. I guess it’s just not mainstream enough. Obviously the violence has to be ‘Wolf Creek’ level to be appealing to the masses.

    It’s currently still on 4 times a day at my local cinema, so I’m a happy girl. Doubt that will last much longer though. No matter what the figures show, the guys can stand tall & proud of the brilliant Aussie movie they’ve made together.

    It’s such a shame that so many people are going to miss out on seeing this amazing movie on the big screen. To be honest, I have to admit that it’s all credit to Rob that I now often think about the independent movie industry and how hard it is for them. Yet another thing that he has really opened my eyes to over the last few years. *Who said ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’?*

    I feel like screaming every time I see or hear words to the effect that this movie was not a success. Look at the ‘effin’ screening times and look at how many cinemas are actually supporting it. No promotion, no nothing. The reviews have been great and Guy, Rob and David have done a brilliant job promoting it. It doesn’t make sense, people are saying it’s great yet they consider it to be a failure. I guess it’s just a monetary thing. The big mega movies have so much money for promotion, they’re the ones who pay the big cinemas to support their movies. I love this movie, I’ve seen it a few times and intend to see it again, all concerned have done a brilliant, brilliant job. Sorry about the ramble but I feel really annoyed right now.

    @Silvie whoever says this film is not a success clearly measures success only by box office ticket sales. The talk about Rob, Guy & David on social media tells me there is no amount of box office success that can override the fact that people LOVE this film and reminds them of what true cinema is about. And for the idiots who claim Rob’s fans are twisting comments to their advantage, they only show their ignorance of what true cinema and auteurs really mean.

    And no need to apologise – I step on soapboxes OFTEN. lol

    Thanks for the updates as always Maria 🙂 agree with the comments too….the reviews from so many have been worth it alone but let’s not forget the amazing experiences they all had together to film this. I’m sorry so many are having issues with crazy screening times, how frustrating. :/

    Rob’s fans will see this as many times as they can, it’s a given….word of mouth is crucial for the rest of the viewing public I would guess. You see it happening on social media and long may it continue. The more to see it, experience it and share that the better. I don’t think the marketing in some countries has been particularly great either but oh well. It deserves nothing but respect.

    I have NO idea what will happen for the UK *giggles* oh, except I’ll be there watching it as much as my poor heart can take LOL
