A Revival For Aussie Film Industry?

Australian movies have had a tough time at the box office in recent years. “After last year’s record low box-office share of 1.3 per cent, the struggles of even huge budget Hollywood movies this year make finding an audience seem even tougher. A release that triumphs in the multiplexes and revitalises the film industry has proved desperately elusive since the Hollywood-backed Moulin Rouge took $27.4 million and Lantana made $9.8 million four years ago.” But some big-budget movies about to be released give Australian movie-makers hope.
