Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson thanks Kiwi fans for making him 'tougher'

Johnson's Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was released in New Zealand on Boxing Day 2017 and in its first six days knocked Star Wars off its perch at the top of the New Zealand box office.

Johnson posted a video to Instagram thanking his fans in New Zealand and Australia, where the film also topped the box office a week after its release.

"Thank you so, so much for the Jumanji love," he said in the clip.
