Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls (cont'd)

After four weeks in New Zealand cinemas, Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls has taken $1 million. That's a big audience for a country with a total population of around 4 million and takes it almost into the dozen all-time top grossing New Zealand films (domestically).

In comparison, last year's big hit Secondhand Wedding reached $1million after seven weeks. And back in 2003, after four weeks, Whale Rider had grossed around $1.5million. I'm fascinated by what will happen next, especially as I've got lots of mates who haven't yet seen Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls and really want to go. Will it sell into the United States and other countries at Cannes? I hope so.

And now the Topps have a YouTube channel. Lots of great clips.
