Kiwis choose Oscar contender over Liam Neeson at the box office

Liam Neeson’s latest Cold Pursuit came within $6,000 of getting the top spot at the New Zealand box office last weekend. Unfortunately for that film, Green Book extended its lead by a cool $35,000 over the week. It wasn’t exactly a smashing box office result for anyone, though.

Next week is another story, with a blockbuster sci-fi, slasher sequel, and Taraji P Henson comedy all butting heads with one another.

1. Green Book $275,421 (eOne)
2. Cold Pursuit $240,280 (Studiocanal)
3. The Wandering Earth $155,692 (CMC)
4. Glass $126,531 (Walt Disney)
5. On the Basis of Sex $125,207 (eOne)
6. Aquaman $106,522 (Warner Bros.)
7. How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World $79,086 (Universal)
8. Mary Queen of Scots $78,631 (Universal)
