Hobbs and Shaw topped the Aotearoa box office over the weekend


Unsurprisingly, Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw topped the Aotearoa box office over the weekend with a respectable gross of $1.6 million. However, it’s a noteable dip for the franchise with the spinoff’s opening weekend unable to match the 8th film, 7th film, or 6th film.

Elsewhere, The Lion King can sleep easy tonight with another million in the pocket, tipping its total gross over $10 million. Sleeper hit Yesterday hangs in the Top 4, pushing its total above $2.5 million. And, somehow, small release The Keeper jumped from #10 to #6.
