Local film dishes up Australian record

Rob Sitch-directed The Dish has crashed through the record barrier with the highest weekend opening gross for an Australian film at the local box office. The Roadshow release grossed $1.56m (A$2.985m) from 281 prints on its four-day opening weekend - more than any other Australian film in history. Including its three days of pre-opening previews prior to its Oct 19 release, the film has pulled in a total gross of $2.25m (A$4.3m).
