The Potter-verse magic sees off the Trolls and other comers. Chasing Great is now on video in time for stocking stuffing, leaving Hunt for the Wilderpeople (in the charts for 37 weeks this year) and Tickled (29 weeks) to fly the flag.
Fillums with local connections include The Light Between Oceans, Sunset Song and Moana (whose hat in the Original Song ring for the Oscars – twice).
NB: this is the last chart SCREENZ will publish in 2016, although we’ll play some catch up after the holidays. The next Box Office report will publish 19 January.
