How to Train Your Dragon sequel soars in fourth week of release

First kept from top spot in weekly Aotearoa box office figures by Aquaman and then GlassHow to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World was given a scare over the weekend by Dragon Ball Super: Broly, suggesting it was destined to always be the bridesmaid, never the bride(zilla?).

Then, by the narrowest of margins as January comes to an end, some $20,000 and change delivered the animated sequel top spot, among results that saw the top four films separated by only a meagre $33,744.

1. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World $389,350 (Universal)
2. Dragon Ball Super: Broly $369,032 (Madman)
