Roadshow's The Matrix Revolutions comfortably beat the competition to retain the top spot in its third weekend on release, showing more resilience than in some other markets. UIP's Love Actually put in a strong performance to secure second place, despite only being on previews. It grossed NZ$212,718 from 45 screens compared to the NZ$340,095 from 77 screens accumulated by The Matrix. Both films have the highest screen averages in the chart.

In the third spot is Roadshow's Elf, which grossed NZ$124,256 from 39 screens in its opening weekend. Only NZ$20,000 separates the next four titles, in order, BVI's Seabiscuit, Fox's Jeepers Creepers 2, Roadshow's Matchstick Men, all in their second week, and BVI's Calendar Girls, which has now grossed a very impressive NZ$2.28 million in its seventh week in the chart.
