  1. 1. La La Land 2. Sing! 3. Silence 4. Contratiempo (local film) 5. Passengers 6. Underworld 7. Why him? 8. Frantz (French film) 9. Hell or High Water 10. Rogue One
  2. No numbers yet, but it is opening first in Spain.
  3. @Jason Thank you again for your hard work This chart shows how hard is to reach 1 billion OS. Just 4 films would had reached today that mark (Titanic, Avatar, SW7 and F7), even less than the real 5 (JW would lose that privilege). And just another 4 would had made over 900 (JW, HP1, FOTR and ROTK). I guess that among older films just a bunch like Snow White, Gone with the Wind, 101 dalmatians, Jungle Book (1967), Jaws, Star Wars, E.T., Jurassic Park and Lion King would have chances to make it. Maybe I am forgetting some more classics but those are the only possible films that come to my mind right now.
  4. My bad. I had not explained what that +€4.2m means.
  5. comScore data are for the weekend (Fri 6th-Sun 8th). The data I gave in my previous post are for the whole week (Mon 2nd-Sun 8th): As expected, big week-to-week increases. Sing! has grossed €4.2m during Mon-Sun period, Passengers €3.1m, Rogue One €2.3m, Assasin's Creed €1.5m, and Villaviciosa de al Lado, Moana and Collateral Beauty €1.0m each.
  6. January 6th-8th (bold titles are local films) # (Last). Title: Total Gross (nº of weekend) 1 (1) . Sing!: €12,138,897 (3rd) +€4.2m 2 (2) . Passengers: €4,554,181 (2nd) +€3.1m 3 (N) .

Juste la fin du monde: €39,345 (NEW) As expected, big week-to-week increases. Sing! has grossed €4.2m during Mon-Sun period, Passengers €3.1m, Rogue One €2.3m, Assasin's Creed €1.5m, and Villaviciosa de al Lado, Moana and Collateral Beauty €1.0m each. FB will not probably reach the lowest HP film (DH1 with €13.8m), but it will be very close. RO (€14.1m) is tracking a bit lower than half than TFA at the same point, which was at €29m at the end of holidays. If some of you want to have a better perspective of these numbers, the size of the market is, rounding up, about 18 times lower in dollars than US. That means that if a film makes about €5.3m it is equivalent to $100m. You can take €5m or €5.5m for easier extrapolations, but more or less, that is the current equivalence.
  7. Civil War first with about $553m Dory would still be slightly over FB: 541 OS - 38 China = $503m Anyway, very good those nearly $500m without China.
  8. January 6th-12th: 1. Justice League 2. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 3. Wonder Woman 4. War for the Planet of the Apes 5. Beauty and the Beast 6. Dunkirk 7. Blade Runner 2049 8. Star Wars VIII 9. Thor: Ragnarok 10. The LEGO Batman movie
  9. As expected, good data relative to previous week because of holidays. Flat or increase for the 3 holdovers. "Contratiempo" is a local film and "Silencio" is Scorsese's Silence.
  10. Last update in www.cbooo.cn has 20:15 data. Friday is already at 61.9m yuan (65.65m adding midnights)
  11. It can beat Frozen in Spain (in local currency). Sing is becoming bigger than we had thought
  12. Probably both reasons are valid. However, being a low ratio (1 ticket per person and year), I do not see it extremely low, taking into account it was at 0.5 ticket per person just 3 years ago. I guess it will continue improving, maybe at a lower rate, but still relevant (if my data are correct there have been sold 112 million more tickets in 2016 than in 2015). Among consolidated markets, Germany had a 1.5 tickets per person ratio in 2014. It does not seem a too far mark for China.
  13. December 30th-January 5th: 1. Justice League 2. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 3. Wonder Woman 4. War for the Planet of the Apes 5. Beauty and the Beast 6. Dunkirk 7. Blade Runner 2049 8. Coco 9. Thor: Ragnarok 10. The LEGO Batman movie
  14. @Jason has become a better source than me for this kind of calculations Anyway, I always use an easy and real example to show the damage that ER would have made today to Avatar: The film grossed €77,032,767 in Spain. The reported figure in dollars is $111,967,209 (Dec 2009 + Special edition). That means that ER for the film was 1.4535. Today the dollar/euro change is 1.05681. That implies that the €77m are today $81,408,999. Just in Spain, Avatar would had grossed $30m less or a 27% drop. You can apply the same to the whole Eurozone, what includes another big markets like France, Germany or Italy. And as @Telemachos says, other currencies of very big markets (Russian Ruble, Brazilian Real, Mexican Peso) have dropped even more than Euro. To repeat what Avatar did, you need an enormous boost from China. But even making $800m in China will not guarantee to repeat the $2b OS figure. A2 should repeat LOCALLY the results of the first part everywhere to achieve that. Never say never, but today and unless the film amazes and surprises again, to repeat results is, IMHO, highly unlikely.
