Late night business is looking very strong for F8, which if I remember correctly, the Fast and Furious series usually does very well in. So I guess this is more of an evening/late night flick than daytime because earlier shows looked pretty empty.

 

For example, the 11:45pm show at Vue Stratford is nearly sold out in their biggest screen, which rarely ever happens. The 12:20 am show at Vue Westfield is also over half full. 

its 5 days should end up  around 14.1 over 10% above Fast7 3 days

That's pretty good actually, so with Monday included it'll probably be over £16m 6 day. Hasn't really looked that busy so I'm surprised by that number. Should be enough to hit £30m, which would be down only 20% or so from F7. 

 

F7 opened to £15.5m 4-day including Easter Monday. Probably would have been close to £20m if it had opened on Wednesday like F8, so again, this is down about 20%.

BatB up to £64.7m, down 7%. With bank holiday included, it should be near £66m.

Boss Baby:

"The biggest market continues to be the U.K. where it grossed another $4.39M this weekend and was up 26% to total $20.46M...

I'm more impressed Boss Baby increased but I guess families want to see it before kids go back to school. 

 

Fast 8 had a good opening, I imagine it'll hit £30m.

Hmm that's funny that they'll claim "it was up" but they claimed the 7 day run of $8m as it's "weekend number" last week.

 

You cant have it all!

Universal’s franchise triumphs again with $17.8m debut for latest entry.

 

UK TOP FIVE

Ranking Film/Distributor Weekend Gross Running Total
1 Fast & Furious 8 (Universal) $17.8m (£14m) $20.6m (£16.3m)
2 The Boss Baby (Fox) $4.6m (£3.6m) $23m (£18.1m)
3 Beauty And The Beast (Disney) $3.3m (£2.6m) $83.2m (£65.9m)
4 Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience (eOne) $652,000 (£514,000) $3.3m (£2.8m)
5 The Handmaiden (Curzon Artificial Eye) $695,000 (£548,000) $695,000 (£548,000)

(Note - Dollar conversions are based on today’s rates)

UNIVERSAL

Universal posted its third highest UK opening of all time with Fast & Furious 8.

The film took $17.8m (£14m) from 573 locations over its opening weekend, including $6.8m (£5.4m) in Wednesday and Thursday previews, and sits on a running total of $20.6m (£16.3m) including the bank holiday Monday (April 17).

The opening was the biggest UK debut for the long-running franchise (though not the biggest Friday to Sunday result if you remove previews), but it has a long way to go to match Fast & Furious 7 on $49m (£38.6m).

Get Out continued its impressive run by posting $575,000 (£455,000) from 345 locations to keep it seventh in the chart. The US comedy has now taken $11.5m (£9.1m) in the UK.

Cannibal drama Raw dropped 62% in its second week, adding $24,000 (£19,000) for a running total of $193,000 (£153,000).

DISNEY

Still playing in 673 sites this weekend, Beauty And The Beast suffered only a 2% drop over the Fri-Sun period, clocking up a further $3.3m (£2.6m) to take its cumulative total to $83.2m (£65.9m).

The live action remake of Disney’s animated classic now sits 11th in the list of the UK’s highest-grossing films of all time and is on the cusp of breaking into the top ten.

Moana, still playing in 213 sites in its 20th week of release, crossed $25m (£20m) this weekend.

FOX

After opening top last week, The Boss Baby added a healthy $4.6m (£3.6m) Fri-Sun from 614 sites to take its running total to $23m (£18.1m). The film was one of only two titles in the top ten to record an uptick this weekend, with the Easter holiday helping it to a 29% rise on the previous Fri-Sun period.

The latest entry in live cinema experience Secret Cinema, which is themed around Fox’s Moulin Rouge!, posted a three-day total of £257,000 (£203,000) from its single location Fri-Sun, taking it to $3.3m (£2.6m).

Now in its seventh week, Logan added $206,000 (£162,000) from 216 sites to take its running total to $30m (£23.7m).

Viceroy’s House added $29,000 (£23,000) from 41 sites and now sits on a little under $5m (£3.9m).

EONE

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience dropped 51% in its second week, adding $652,000 (£514,000) from 546 sites. Its running total now sits at $3.3m (£2.8m) after two weeks.

WARNER BROS

Crime caper Going In Style posted $634,000 (£499,000) from 458 sites in its second week of release and now sits on $2.4m (£1.9m).

In its sixth week of release, Kong: Skull Island added $218,000 (£172,000) to take it onto $19.9m (£15.7m).

SONY

Animated feature Smurfs: The Lost Village was boosted by the Easter weekend, seeing a 16% rise in takings to $556k (£440,000), which took its running total to $4.9m (£3.9m).

PARAMOUNT

Ghost In The Shell was hit by a 50% drop in its third week of release, posting $465k (£367k) for a running cume of $6.6m (£5.2m).

CURZON ARTIFICIAL EYE

Opening this weekend, The Handmaiden posted $347,000 (£274,000) Fri-Sun from 95 locations. Including previews, the film’s debut totalled $695,000 (£548,000).

LIONSGATE

Power Rangers dropped out of the top ten in its fourth week of release, taking $277,000 ($218,000) from 340 sites for a running total of $5.8m (£4.6m).

ALTITUDE

Documentary I Am Not Your Negro added $64,000 (£50,000) to take it to $283,000 (£226,000).

Strong opening for F8, should be another £30m grosser.

 

Boss Baby has done really well over the holidays, and some schools are still off this week, so a total of around £25m seems doable. Impressive considering it's faced competition from one of the biggest films ever.

 

Speaking of BatB, also a great week for it, and it should be closing in on £70m after this weekend. A total of £75m ($95) looks likeliest, which would place it at number 6 of all time. Needs £79m for a gross above $100m which is unlikely given the fact holidays are coming to an end, and GotG will be taking more screens next week. 

 

Hope Get out can squeeze past £10m. Either way, it's had a superb run.

That 2% drop for BatB is ridiculous.

Great opening for Fast although it's unlikely to outgross Fast 7's final gross but £30-33m is doable. 

 

It's difficult to predict GOTG V2 OW but I think £9-10m is doable, perhaps more.

That Handmaiden opening is indeed great. When was the last time a non-English language film got in to the top 5?

There's a Polish film who got into the top 5 in December 2016.

Really quiet weekend for us. The weather isn't helping I suppose.

 

I'd think massive drops for everything.
