Box Office: Who runs the world? (Horse) Girls!

(Premium content) Premium content

What better way to celebrate school holidays than some spooky new flicks, and an Aussie number one straight out of the gate?

Ride Like a Girl is first out the gate in the box office this week, and the Australian horse racing flick was indisputably met with a hero's welcome on the school holiday screens. Debuting on top of the Australian box office this weekend, the film brought in $1,665,034 over 270 screens, for a tasty screen average of $6,167. And of course it did – what's not to love? Sport, a feisty underdog, complicated dads, the rabid glorification of a culture of gambling and animal abuse – the Transmission feature of dubious progressive merit is blockbuster gold.
