By the end of last weekend, MM2 had taken £48.3 million at the UK box office. It is doing lots of repeat business and its decline has been gradual over the last month. By now it will be well over £50m - it is a huge hit, at least in the UK. Seems to be doing really well in Australia too. Even in the US, it has surpassed the $100 million mark. It's great news for the Abba fan community!
