Screen Australia released the latest figures for the 2011 Australian cinema box office this week. Unsurprisingly, it was dominated by major Hollywood studio films. The top box-office performer was none other than the final instalment from golden wizard, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which took $52.6 million, followed by Transformers: Dark of the Moon with $37.5 million and The Hangover Part II with $32.7 million.
Forty-four Australian titles were released. They accounted for $42.9 million of the $1.09 billion in total box-office takings. The top Australian film was Red Dog, which came in 11th with $21.3 million.
