Box Office: skinny returns for the great Slim Dusty but there's reason to hope

(Premium content) Premium content

First week out Slim and I gets 117 screens so it has definitely been on offer. But it could just be a sleeper with friends in the bush.

Slim and I, which our reviewer loved, went out on 117 screens with the might of Universal behind it. $103,000 in total means $821/screen and the ninth slot on the league table. They won't be happy, though it is probably hanging around the city at the moment and will look a lot healthier in the bush. Also Universal might be a bit skint at the moment in the marketing department because even titans need income and this is only a branch office. Slim Dusty is not a world music hero so this is not a test release but the whole thing.
