First of all, thank you for clicking the least clickbait-y headline we’ve ever written—really, there’s no exciting way to put it. Pixar’s latest, Toy Story 4, made killer bucks in the USA last week, so there’s zero surprise in reporting that it almost made a million here in its first four days, taking it straight to the top of the New Zealand box office.
In second place, British crowd-pleaser Yesterday made a respectable $500k, beating horror sequel-spinoff-franchise-merger Annabelle Comes Home‘s third-of-a-million. Not exactly a smash for The Conjuring series but was roughly on par with what the first Annabelle made in NZ ($343,000).
