NZ box office grants Aladdin $1 million weekend and the #1 spot


Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin easily took top position over the weekend at the New Zealand box office.

Prince Ali’s got 75 golden camels, 53 purple peacocks, and now over $1 million NZD thanks to a decent opening weekend for Aladdin at the Aotearoa box office. Can it hold its own next week with two incoming colossal forces—Godzilla and Elton John—taking stage soon?

And what about superhero-horror mash-up Brightburn? Sadly, it’s best we don’t talk about it…
