‘Chappie’ Dominates Box Office


Hugh Jackman’s robot adventure Chappie has come alive at the top of the latest box office.

The movie, directed by Neill Blomkamp, debuted with a $13.3 million gross during a slow week, which sees Will Smith’s former number one, Focus, suffer a 46 per cent fall in ticket sales to take second place with $10 million.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel enters at three with a solid $8.6 million, but Vince Vaughn’s comedy Unfinished Business didn’t fare so well – the movie bombed during its opening week, only managing 10th place with $4.8 million.
