From (via The Dominion Post)Despite a challenge from The Dark Knight, Peter Jackson’s The Return of the King is still king at the New Zealand box office. The latest Batman film, which broke box office records for an opening weekend in the United States, made $1.8 million in New Zealand, $800,000 short of the $2.6 million record accomplished by The Return of the King in 2003.
