Grinch can’t stop Freddy Mercury at the NZ box office this week

Queen doesn’t have enough songs for us to make pun of for all the times we’ve needed to write a headline about Bohemian Rhapsody crushing the NZ box office. We’ve got plenty for The Grinch though, but unfortunately dropped from its #1 spot over the week thanks to the Freddy Mercury film.
