So the Australian figures came out today and according to UrbanCine, The Rover has slipped to no. 17 as at 30 June 2014 and is still only on 32 screens, which means nothing because it could play once a day on those screens as I’ve evidenced at my local cinema at a time that is impossible for anyone working full time to go and see.  Anyway it’s total box office is $425,554. And I know people think I’m going to spin it positively, but I can honestly tell you if you check out the top 10 films at the Aussie Box Office, the only one I might consider seeing is “Two Faces of January” but even then I found the storyline to be too cliched when I saw the preview during The Rover.  I’m not lying, I won’t even bother watching the top 9 films even on DVD zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

For US Box Office Mojo has an estimated box office as at 29 June 2014 at USD980,000 – it’s in about 608 cinemas during its wider release, although I’m no expert on the US box office and those cinema numbers may not be accurate.

Interesting.  Still there’s no denying the critical acclaim all are receiving.  No denying that at all.

    To see this movie in Sydney, you really needed to be committed and unemployed and have no family commitments. I did get to a day time screening last Friday and there were about 50 people in the audience. I was pretty impressed considering it was the middle of a work day

    There is no denying the quality of The Rover. It is a pity the wider public wont get a chance to appreciate it but I still believe it has earnt its place in our film history

    The Rover opened US wide on Friday, June 20th. I went to see it that day *AWESOME* and there were ten other people in the theater, mostly 70-80 year olds! And no, I’m not near that age. lol I had plans on seeing it again this past weekend but, sadly, the movie is no longer playing as it was on for just a week at the three theaters here. I wish I knew that as I wouldn’t have waited for the weekend.

    The DVD is to be released sometime in September. That’s a long time to wait to see it again. *sniff sniff* But it does give me something to look forward to seeing. OH! And MTTS will be next!

    I live in Canada and it’s not even out here! It’s only out in two places. Which is ridiculous because I would probably go see this movie at least twice. I can’t see it at all.

    I feel for you Maria. I can’t believe it hasn’t been released widely there yet.

    I may be rather dumb, but why did “The Rover ” only have limited release, when it has had critical acclaim from every reviewer,it has been flawless. I have friends in America who also said that the movie is not showing in their area and they do not live out in the sticks,also these conflicting box office takings we will ever get an accurate figure for it.
    We are all waiting patiently for the Australian DVD release.

    I’m with you @Maria re the Top 10 movies. Funnily enough, I ALMOST went to see “Two Faces of January” yesterday, after seeing KD on Graham Norton the other night. But when we looked at the trailer, it just didn’t grab us. Went to see A Trip to Italy instead, and whilst it had it’s moments (& I do love Italy), I swear I’d have much preferred to have been watching The Rover for the 5th time.

    Barbara it’s up to the distributors to release the film and if they want to do limited release then I guess it’s their choice since they’ve paid rights to do what they want with the film. Crazy right. It may be that they are going to release it slowly over 6 to 12 months in different areas. If you look at Animal Kingdom in the US it was literally out for 12 months.

    But having said that I’ll see if I can find out some legit information on the reasoning behind it.
