Box Office: Peter Rabbit 2 dominates school holidays

Currently beating Godzilla vs Kong, the bunny may falter as the kids go back to school.

Peter Rabbit 2 is doing excellent business, with $17.63 million in four weeks and $2.88 million off nearly 500 screens in the last weekend. That was down a mere 14 per cent on last weekend, in which the weekend take was up to $3.3 million, which was a rise of 34 per cent.

The holidays have been very kind. The increasing strength of the weekend figures flows on from strong weekly figures. It is one of those films to which grownups take small children and end up loving it too.
