Gladiator marches into Australia, Mexico

Ridley Scott's highly anticipated film Gladiator thrashed Australian competition when it reported its opening four-day gross May 4-7. The Roman epic became the fourth highest opening film ever in the territory marginally beating The Lost World: Jurassic Park distributed in May 1997. Playing on 287 screens, the UIP release scooped a four-day gross of $3.4m (A$5,927,458) which also made it the biggest success story to-date for the distributor's Australian office.
