NEW ZEALAND

As expected, The Lord Of The Rings - The Return Of The King dominated the local New Year holiday box office charts, selling a further NZ$1.1m worth of tickets from 114 screens. With a total of NZ$7.5m by its third week it has sailed well clear of the NZ$6.5m reached by recent big performers Finding Nemo (in 12 weeks) and that other production featuring spectacular local scenery, Whale Rider (in 37 weeks).
