  1. GotG is not really a SH movie in general perception, rather some kind of SciFi action comedy.

Family stuff was strong again, Bibi und Tina 4 did even increase against the best opener, Conni & Co 2 (which saw a sizeable drop from the first one). Beauty and the Beast crossed 3mil total, nice! Both french comedies missed the Top10, at least Bienvenue à Marly-Gomont had a decent PTA and might have a good hold. Next weekend: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will take the weekend crown; the first one is well remembered and I expect (or hope for) an increase; a 600-700k opening weekend would be nice. Against this maybe-blockbuster (the first one missed 2mil total though) there are no other big releases, but Unforgettable gets releasesed in an market devoid of thrillers, so maybe some success in late evening shows.
  3. no, drop is completely in line with F&F7
  4. Excellent numbers all around ... Boss Baby and Smurfs are increasing again, both seems to enjoy really good WoM!

Fast & Furios 8 opened better than expected and family releases had great rebounds (best, of course, Easter-themed Die Häschenschule). And Going in Style kept going up from estimate to estimate, a sure sign of good WOM and hopefully some good multiplier (1mil total might be possible the way it was developing). Next weekend: No big releases; between F&F8 and GotG2 the week after, nobody dared release anything expensive. Conni & Co 2 is the domestic favourite, and Chips might attract some audiences since there's no big competition for comedies.
  6. 9/10, A Mature themes, fun realisation, outstanding design and light work. One of the best 2016 releases (among those I've seen, it's the only one I rated 9/10, so my personal favourite for 2016)
  7. Preliminary numbers for the weekend are in and yes, Going in Style made it over 100k: #1: F&F8 - 1.330k admissions (incl. 200k previews) #2: BBaby - 230k #3: Beauty - 215k #4: Smurfs - 190k #5: Going - 105k
  8. yes, I was expecting a much bigger drop, too. Not complaining though ...
  9. Going in Style is up from earlier estimates again, might come close to a 100k weekend! Good number for F&F8. With rainy weather, family stuff should have excellent afternoon numbers today and tomorrow!
  10. Going in Style is the only release with a significant difference in the 2nd trend ... saw it yesterday, it's the kind of feelgood comedy that should get a lot of good WOM among older audiences, might become a longrunner. Die Häschenschule was released a few weeks too early, I didn't understand the thinking then and still don't - why release an Easter movie 4 weeks before Easter holidays?!
  11. First estimates: F&F8 1,3mil admissions - that's great, finally a mil+ opener and not that big a drop from F&F7! Good holds for family stuff as expected - BossBaby 225k admissions (+20%), Beauty 200k (-5%), Smurfs 175k (+20%)

Low PTA's across the chart, so on to this week and next weekend: With weather a bit unstable and easter holidays, family releases should see nice weekdays as well as good holds next weekend. The big opener is F&F8; the last one had a lot of publicity so maybe we should expect a little drop this time but 600k admissions seem like a sensible prediction; hopefully it can get a bit higher..
  13. yep, with rainy weather over easter holidays we should expect some strong numbers, especially a much-needed rebound for family stuff!
  14. uh-oh. first trend for the weekend is not so good #1 BatB 225k admissions (-30%, actually ok) #2 / 3 BoddBaby and Smurfs3 with 175k each ... that's a major decline for Smurfs from the earlier movies #4 GitS 100k (-35%)
  15. You're right, so Smurfs will be on top I guess! btw, The Austrian Film Institut was exceptionally quick this time, March numbers are in and it's been a terrible one (just like January). But with the strong February numbers, our 1st quarter was NOT the worst in recent history (barely).
