Hobbs and Shaw comes extremely close to $2 million in its first week in NZ


This week at the New Zealand box office, Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw was just $40k shy of nabbing a clean two million in its first week—a handsome gross for the spinoff action flick. Another live-action cartoon, The Lion King, scored an easy million in its third week.

Gotta give a bit of kudos to Yesterday for staying in the Top 4 in its sixth week. Clearly, it needs no… help… or anyone to… hold its hand. It’s doing just fine.
