The Force was with the franchise as Star Wars: Pension Plan became the biggest of pretty much everything in NZ, becoming the best opening week of all time. It passed Spectre’s total take in its first week. By New Year it should comfortably overtake Fast and Furious 7 to be named the year’s biggest earner overall.
Taking barely 5% of Star Wars’ haul was good enough to see Rohit Shetty’s Dilwale into second spot.
Propping up the chart ahead of its trip to the Berlinale early next year, Tammy Davis’ Born to Dance added a few dollars more.
