3-day holiday Estimates/First week totals

1. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island - $1,525,000/$2,625,000

2. I Love Hong Kong 2012 - $800,000/$1,130,000

3. The Viral Factor - $710,000/$1,210,000

4. Puss in Boots - $550,000/$770,000

5. All's Well Ends Well 2012 - $415,000/$615,000

Outstanding number for Journey 2. I Love HK had an excellent increase through the holidays and The Viral Factor played strongly. Puss in Boots continues to be below average. 2m is still on the table. All's Well did pretty awful. Its first week total didn't even make half of the opening weekend from last year's version.

Huge gains for just about everything with the exceptions of Kokuriko Hill and Great Magician, thanks to lots of people taking the whole week off.

Journey 2 is doing fantastic. Beating the first one is a lock. 5m is not a done deal yet. It still needs OK holds to hold on for 5m but this happened to The Incredibles in 2005. Incredibles made 3.4m after two weeks, also increasing in its 2nd week, but only made $900,000 the rest of the way. The holidays also fell on weekdays in The Incredibles' 2nd week which lead to the bump. Top 5 of the year is a definite possibility.

I Love Hong Kong is doing quite well. It will make 2m and should finish with around 2.4m. Holds after the holiday are pretty disastrous for any type of Lunar New Year-themed movie.

The Viral Factor is exhibiting strong daily holds and will continue to perform above expectations through this weekend. 2m is still happening although anything above could be ruled out. 2 action films are coming out next weekend and that will take us through a barrage of action movies opening in February.

Puss in Boots has suffered from the weight of the competition but it will still make it to 2m. Past animated releases on the Chinese New Year holidays haven't done so well after the holidays ended so expecting Shrek 4 like numbers is out of the question.

All's Well Ends Well bounced back after the holidays but it will come in way below last year's total.

Helped by well-timed wins for Picture/Director at the Golden Globes, The Descendants will make about $350,000 this weekend. Its run will get cut short by 3 award contender films next week.

Flowers of War is doing alright. 1m is happening but like the Descendants, it will face immense competition from Award winners/Oscar nominees.

Kokuriko Hill looked ok in the beginning but has faded since. It's going to need one heck of a push to pass Tales of Earthsea now. Disappointing.

The Muppets looks like it's benefiting from strong word-of-mouth. $300,000 should happen.

The Great Magician had a terrible drop but it will pass The Darkest Hour (if it hasn't already) and a 2 multiplier.

Mission Impossible will just miss Pirates for 4th. 3 Idiots passing 3m is a certainty. I don't see it being let go for quite a while. It should also pass South Korea's gross to become the highest international market. It has already beaten one record: most number of weeks spent in theaters. It beat Avatar's 20 week run. It's now in its 21st week.

The end of the holidays is near. Journey 2 did alright. Very strong for The Viral Factor. I Love Hong Kong is starting to show some cracks and it'll be a tight race between this and The Viral Factor for 2nd. All's Well had a solid Friday hold. Nice uptick for The Descendants. Still on track for a $350,000 weekend.

January 26 Weekend Projections

1. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island - $1,200,000 (+5.9%)/$3,775,000

2. The Viral Factor - $630,000 (+25.3%)/$1,715,000

3. I Love Hong Kong 2012 - $600,000 (+76.4%)/$1,735,000

4. Puss in Boots - $550,000 (+84.6%)/$1,430,000

5. All's Well Ends Well 2012 - $400,000 (+72.9%)/$1,100,000

6. The Descendants - $350,000 (incl. previews)

Journey should stay flat or come in with a slight increase. Either way, it's headed for 4.5m. The Viral Factor is already up to 60,000 admissions for the weekend and will be hard pressed not to match its 3-day holiday admissions figure. I Love Hong Kong has taken a hit this weekend and Sunday should pull Viral Factor ahead of Love HK for 2nd. Families won't want to watch this when they have to go back to work/school. Action movies have typically shown better drops on Sundays. Puss in Boots won't make the admissions chart but will slide in ahead of Descendants and All's Well. It'll be close for 2m. All's Well will finish above 1.5m. The Descendants looks to get off to a good start this weekend with about $350,000. With good reviews, this could end up with $900,000 if the competition doesn't get to it that badly next week.

UA Times Square is closing down today (January 31) due to skyrocketing rent prices. In its place, LV will open a flagship store in Times Square. The theater will undergo renovations during an 18 month period which will see it move to the 12-13th floors of the mall. Total cost of the renovations is said to be around $500m HK. The new Times Square theater will have 5 houses instead of 4 and be close in the number of seats as the old one.

Total Actuals (through January 29)

1 Journey 2: The Mysterious Island - $3,722,538

2 I Love Hong Kong 2012 - $1,880,247

3 The Viral Factor - $1,818,059

4 Puss In Boots - $1,515,002

5 All's Well End's Well 2012 - $1,183,971

6 The Flowers Of War - $847,443

7 From Up On Poppy Hill - $634,233

8 The Descendants - $332,794

9 The Muppets - $251,989

10 The Great Magician - $829,043

Judging from those totals, it seems I Love HK took 2nd, Viral settled for 3rd, Puss in Boots claimed 4th and All's Well rounded out the top 5 for the Jan. 26 weekend. Kokuriko Hill isn't passing Tales of Earthsea and should be considered a massive failure here.

Estimated theater counts

Chronicle - Very wide

War Horse - Very wide

Haywire - Wide

The Ides of March - Semi wide (13 theaters, actual)

New Perfect Two - Semi wide

J. Edgar - limited

Anonymous - limited

Repeat I Love You - limited

Even with the huge cut in showtimes, I still think Journey 2 will eclipse the first film. It'll be around $500,000-600,000 away after Wednesday. The Flowers of War continues to be Jekyll/Hyde at Broadway/UA locations. It is receiving no cut at Broadway but is gone from most UA theaters. The only major survivor seems to be The Viral Factor which has only lost a quarter to about half its showtimes.

Huge news: Battleship moves to May 1 and will collide with Avengers opening on April 26. February/March schedule updated in first post. Please check regularly for any updates.

Revised totals will come in later.

Very strong 2 weeks for Journey 2. It will ride its momentum past the original with a total of 4.6-4.8m. I Love HK has done reasonably well over the holidays but it's back to work now so it will post big drops from here on out. It will end up with about 2.4-2.5m. The Viral Factor has had a successful run so far. It has kept pace with the frantic rush of people buying tickets to see I Love HK during the holiday period and has now outgunned the flick in gross at the start of this week. It will soon pass the Love HK film and will leg its way to about 2.8m. Puss in Boots has been a disappointing non-factor ever since it opened. It will find a way to about 2.1-2.2m, around where Cars 2/Smurfs finished. All's Well did decent but with the holidays now gone, its business will quickly disappear so expect a 1.4-1.5m tally. The Descendants opened to good results with a strong PTA. Good word of mouth should propel this over the other Oscar bait films in total gross coming out this week but the overlap between this and his directorial The Ides of March will take away seats. The Flowers of War has been unimpressive but will take home 1.1m when it fades away. From Kokuriko Hill has been a failure and now the odds are not in its favour to pass Tales from Earthsea. $800,000 looks likely. The Muppets came back from a disastrous opening weekend and will leave with $375,000. The Great Magician passed The Darkest Hour and looks to disappear with $950,000.

It should end up with around 70,000 admissions for the weekend. Good hold for The Viral Factor. It will drop around 50% this weekend. I Love Hong Kong, for the most part, vanished but the daily decreasing admissions last week will keep it from dropping above 70%. War Horse did pretty bad. Journey 2 had an epic collapse but 4.5m is not in jeopardy. I fully expect at least a 75% increase on Saturday and it will recover to post a $300,000 weekend and get close to the original by Wednesday.

Also, schedules updated in first post.

Madagascar 3 moves to August 2. It is now releasing against Brave and Total Recall. I'm definitely not a fan of this move. Opening against Brave will only hurt its BO. They should release this in June to get away from the big animation movies. It's better than this or opening in July or opening at the end of August where box office really starts to decline. For once, I think they need to ditch the summer release for a kids movie and try it out near the beginning of school holidays. Something like June 7 or June 14 would work. June 7 would see it go up against Prometheus but they are two entirely different audiences. If not, June 14 is empty and it'll win 1 weekend. If it does go up against Brave, it will lose for sure.

Good start for Chronicle although the number looks a bit off. It looks like a $95,000 opening day to my eye. Reviews definitely helped with sales. This could be a sleeper hit. The Viral Factor had a very good hold. It is completely blowing away the Chinese New Year lineup. This should be around 2.4m after this weekend. I Love HK dropped as expected. It'll roll in 2.3m after the weekend is done. Journey 2 completely collapsed although beating the original will still happen. War Horse didn't do great. It'll begin with $175,000-$200,000. All's Well is fading but will end up with 1.5m after Sunday. The Flowers of War had the softest drop of the top 10 but it didn't get an extra gear with the holidays so the drop in itself is only decent. It is completely hilarious regarding the competition between Broadway/UA theaters. Broadway theaters are having full day showtimes for Flowers of War at almost every location. UA theaters, however, has completely cut Flowers for other movies. The Ides of March had a fantastic opening, bolstered by George Clooney and The Descendants. New Perfect Two isn't going to do much here but was helped by strong admissions at select locations. J. Edgar isn't doing so well. It'll open with about $75,000.

You Are the Apple of My Eye is inching closer and closer to 8m although I think it will stop at 7.9m. It is only showing in 1 theater so not much can be made every week. It'll get the heave ho soon. Very good total for Mission Impossible 4 but it won't make it to Pirates. 3 Idiots will pass 3m and HK will beat South Korea's gross sometime next week. Breaking Dawn will squeak by 2.1m. Puss in Boots has been doing horrible. It might miss 2m altogether now. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has performed well. 1.07m looks to be final.

Chronicle is pacing itself well. It should set up for a fairly good Saturday/Sunday. The Viral Factor is showing strength even when it's down 60%. Healthy Friday increase will give way to a very good Saturday/Sunday. It might even sneak in an admissions win over Chronicle on one of the two days. War Horse is doing meh numbers. The Ides of March is the other big story this weekend. Very good #. I Love HK will see a solid increase on Saturday.

Good Saturday for Chronicle. Viral Factor had an excellent drop. Solid increase for War Horse. I Love HK might be showing good word of mouth here. Journey 2 increased almost 100% Saturday.

Viral Factor has been doing an amazing job. Interesting number for Chronicle. It hadn't shown any signs of frontloading till this point but it will still overtake Viral Factor and win in admissions on Sunday. Journey 2 is coming back slightly and will pass 4.3m after this weekend. Surprising for I Love HK. It will take in more than $200,000 this weekend.

February 2 Weekend Projections

1. Chronicle - $600,000

2. The Viral Factor - $370,000 (-47.4%)/$2,470,000

3. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island - $260,000 (-77.3%)/$4,345,000

4. I Love Hong Kong 2012 - $240,000 (-67.9%)/$2,370,000

5. War Horse - $210,000

Chronicle will open with a number north of $500,000. $600,000 is achievable if it has a good enough Sunday. The Viral Factor is shining brightly. Great drop after the makeshift holiday last Thursday/Friday and 3m will probably happen now. Journey 2 fell sharply this weekend but at least it will still beat the original's 4.5m total. I Love HK declined surprisingly smaller than expected and it will close with about 2.7-2.8m. After a sluggish start, War Horse is coming back with a weekend above $200,000. It's a decent opening for the Oscar-nominated film.

3 movies hit milestones this weekend. 3 Idiots squeaked past 3m. Mission Impossible 4 now stands at 5.7m while Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 climbed to 2.1m.

That big Sunday drop caused Chronicle to fall with estimates. It is slightly alarming that it has happened already on the weekend. Weekday numbers will tell which theaters will keep what here between Chronicle/Viral Factor. I still think the weekend overall for Chronicle has been a huge success. A weekend above $500,000 for this type of movie that wasn't clearly defined in the trailer is very good in my book. The Viral Factor had a nice Sunday and a nice weekend. With gross, it may fall below 50% which would be a fantastic drop after the "holiday" weekend. Journey 2 bounced back after a poor Thursday/Friday. With its Saturday/Sunday, it is tracking ahead of I Love HK for the weekend and be about $170,000 behind Journey to the Center of the Earth. Not bad for I Love HK. OK for War Horse although it had some help from bigger ticket prices.

February 9 Weekend Predictions1. Romancing in Thin Air - $850,000 (including previews)2. Contraband - $350,0003. Chronicle - $200,0004. The Lady - $175,0005. The Viral Factor - $150,0006. Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace 3D - $100,000Romancing in Thin Air is getting 2 screens at night at most locations. This will do well with the couples crowd and will win the weekend by a huge margin. Contraband looks to be the runner up with a decent amount of theaters and full day showtimes. Chronicle looks to descend by about 60-70% from last weekend. The Lady is doing fairly well so far with it going semi-wide. The Viral Factor will fall about 50-60% due to unfavorable showtimes and loss of theaters but strong selling in UA/select Broadway theaters. 3D re-releases don't do well in Hong Kong (a la The Lion King, Toy Story 1 & 2) so I don't expect Star Wars to make a lot here.

Weekend Actuals/Totals (through Feb. 5)

1 The Viral Factor - $2,438,268

2 Journey 2: The Mysterious Island - $4,312,088

3 Chronicle - $542,999 (weekend actual)

4 I Love Hong Kong 2012 - $2,339,501

5 All's Well End's Well 2012 - $1,490,298

6 The Flowers Of War - $1,105,909

7 Puss In Boots - $1,764,015

8 War Horse - $201,957/$217,733 (weekend actual)

9 The Descendants - $531,745

10 The Ides of March - $136,795 (weekend actual)

Solid for Chronicle. War Horse did decently but The Ides of March played very well at its locations. Very good for The Viral Factor and it should come away with 2.8-2.9m. Journey 2 still on track to pass original. I Love HK will probably finish with 2.6m. All's Well disappointed and will only take home 1.6-1.7m. The Flowers of War has Broadway/AMC supporting it so it won't go away anytime soon. It could reach 1.6m. Puss in Boots faltered. 1.9m looks final. The Descendants will inch its way past a 2 multiplier for now but who knows what happens if it wins the Oscar.

Romancing in Thin Air might be our 2nd movie to get over a 1m OW. It has looked very good at a number of locations. A bit sluggish at others but walk-ins will be brisk. It will tower over the competition this weekend.

A bit below Overheard 2's start at the same point for Romancing in Thin Air but romance films are known for very good walk-ins. Very good for The Lady. Contraband is having slow sales so far but should pick up and overtake The Lady by day's end. Steep but expected declines for The Viral Factor and Chronicle.

Records and schedule updated on first page.

Valentine's Day will see a number of films have special screenings. The Artist, La Delicatesse, Love, My Week with Marilyn will all try and take advantage of the special holiday. While Beauty and the Beast will not partake in those advanced previews, it will roar to life on that day as that is its official release date.

</tbody></table>A weak debut for Romancing in Thin Air. It will find its way to a $475,000 weekend. Sluggish for Contraband and it'll only produce about a $250,000 weekend. The Viral Factor is down but not out. After this weekend, it will stand above 2.7m. Star Wars had an OK debut considering the number of theaters but it was clearly affected by The Lion King flopping last year. $125,000-$175,000 is the range it'll land in. The Lady had a very good start with the limited theaters and no 3D prices. I could see it finishing with $125,000 in its OW. Very big collapse for Chronicle. This will finish under a 2m and 1m is not happening now. OK for War Horse. The Flowers of War lost only 1 screen so the drop itself is nothing special. It could still crawl its way past 1.5-1.6m. For the first time, Journey 2 is in some danger of not passing the original. After Sunday, it should be around 4.45m. New Perfect Two had a good drop.

At this rate, 3 Idiots needs two more full weeks in the 3 theaters currently left before passing South Korea's gross. It'll be tough but it's doable if those theaters decide that the 1 showtime per day is still profitable. I Love HK 2012 should pass 2.5m before shutting it down. From Kokuriko Hill will pass 3 quarters of a million but won't get past Tales From Earthsea.

Top 10 Disappointments of 2011

With the year already past us, it's time to reflect on the disappointments of 2011. I compiled the list using the 20 entries below:

The Nutcracker (3D)

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Let's Go!

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

Ghost Love Story

Dream House

The Lion King (in 3D)

Xia Ri Le You You (Love You You)

1911

Abduction

Zookeeper

Love in Space

Treasure Hunt

Bad Teacher

Lian Xia Lian Xia Lian Lian Xia (Summer Love Love)

Cowboys & Aliens

Green Lantern

Water for Elephants

Rango

The Road Less Travelled

The list (#10-#6)

10. Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt was Cecelia Cheung's first headliner of 2011 and boy did it flop. It opened with a healthy 29 theaters but only managed a $72,000 opening resulting in one of the worst PTA's for a wide release.

9. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn

Tintin had good reviews, 3D prices and an empty marketplace when it opened. So why did it disappoint so badly? Tintin opened at #1 with $470,000, below Immortals' OW the weekend before, and well below expectations. It proceeded to stay on top for the next 2 weekends after that but never really found its footing as the MI4/SH2 duel crushed it with a 90% drop in its 4th weekend.

The next 3 entries all come from the same weekend...

8. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark/7. Dream House/6. Ghost Love Story

All 3 of these releases opened on Halloween week in hopes of scaring moviegoers. Too bad for them, most HK'ers hate horror movies. So it was poetic justice that all 3 bombed, scoring with less than a $700 PTA for all three, making it one of the worst weekends for horror movies ever.

Coming up...the top 5 disappointments of 2011.

It will quickly enter the 1m ranks by next weekend. Contraband opened to an average Thursday but business didn't see a huge bump on the weekend which lead to below par numbers. This will quickly fade away next week with This Means War opening. With a strong marketing campaign and the real life politician in the news, The Lady opened to good results, however, it'll get trampled by the 3 Oscar-nominated films next week especially by My Week with Marilyn. The Viral Factor posted a good drop. 2.9m looks like it's happening. War Horse posted a softer decline due to lack of competition. $600,000 is possible now.

Star Wars should come in with about $100,000-$150,000.

And continuing on with the top 10 disappointments of 2011...

5. Zookeeper

Opening: $61,086

Total: $90,200

Squandering a #1 chance on its OW, this turd could not convince people to turn up and see talking animals. Booked into 18 theaters, the movie had the worst PSA of any opening wide release that week and left Hong Kong with just $90,000.

4. 1911

Opening: $104,930

Total: $201,099

Jackie Chan decided that 1911 would be the movie that would get both the domestic and HK box office flowing. Turns out it bombed in both areas. This turned in a weak opening weekend performance with a PTA of less than $3,000. It quickly left theaters in just 4 short weeks, embarrassing the 35+ theaters that showed it and is left with the distinction of being 1 of 2 very wide releases to have a OW PTA under $3,000.

3. Rango

Opening: $69,041

Total: $204,564

Whoever decided that opening Rango on a Saturday should be fired on the spot. The opening was not only nontraditional by release date patterns in Hong Kong but it came on the heels of Rio opening the weekend before and faced 5 cartoons the weekend after (Easter). This was a major scheduling error that could have served Rango better had it opened in an emptier marketplace. It also didn't help that the trailer was "UGLY" and turned off local audiences from watching it. The Saturday opening just compounded the list of problems for the rave reviewed animated flick. Instead Rango opened to $69,000 for the 2-day weekend and fell a deceptive 19% on the 4-day Easter weekend. This was a botched release from the start but it couldn't top the next film on the list which is the only 3D release of the top 5.

2. The Lion King (3D)

Opening: $16,721

Total: $48,790

The Lion King had a lot of positives coming into the HK release. It had an exceptional domestic OW, great reviews about the movie and the 3D and very little direct competition. Instead, it bombed, opening with only a $1,115 PTA. Yes, that PTA is for a 3D release on its OW. It lasted an astonishing 6 weeks before succumbing to Arthur's Christmas. In the end, it couldn't even crack $50,000 and its Hong Kong number was by far the lowest of any Asian territory. The only reason why it isn't ranked #1 is because this only had a semi-wide release (15 theaters). The #1 disappointment had more things going for it than this.

1. Love in Space

Opening: $87,467

Total: $153,450

When theaters posted their Thursday schedules the week of Love in Space's release, one could just go down the list, count the number of theaters and comfortably predict where it would end up. Not so with Love in Space. It had the highest number of theaters that weekend (38 theaters) but shockingly came in 6th place. It's PTA, $2,302, was by far the worst of an ultra-wide release of 2011. It left theaters after only 2 weeks and it failed to make half of what Hot Summer Days did. This movie had a lot going for it. The same two directors and one of the producers of Hot Summer Days worked on the film. Hot Summer Days had decent WOM. It had recognizable stars in Aaron Kwok, Eason Chan and Angelababy and theaters booked this with full day showtimes. Its total was a complete failure in itself that it seemed like the gross was reserved for some indie or arthouse flick than a local wide release followup to a successful film.

My Top 10 Surprises for 2011 will be coming shortly.

Valentine's Day

Theaters are having advanced showings for movies featuring a love theme. Romancing in Thin Air is the main beneficiary of Valentine's Day and it is either expected to pass or come close to its Saturday admissions number on Tuesday. The Lady has also seen some movement upwards. Other movies getting a headstart include: The Artist, My Week with Marilyn, Love, Love is Not Blind and La delicatesse.

Most of the night shows had already filled up which explains the low ratio of walk-ins:pre-sales for Romancing in Thin Air. Still a huge admissions number and it'll pass 1m by tomorrow. Contraband had a nice increase debunking the myth that only romance movies do well on Valentine's Day. The Lady had a disappointing increase although it'll put up bigger numbers than Contraband later on. The Viral Factor had a steep fall thanks to decreased showtimes. Very nice for New Perfect Two.

Extremely Loud and Mr. & Mrs. Gambler will jockey for 3rd and 4th. The Lady and Contraband should be a close battle for 5th.

Biggest loser this week is Chronicle. It is losing more than half its screens this weekend. 1m is out of the picture.

I thought it would be a good time to get revved up for this summer seeing how they already started advertising The Avengers here.

Speaking of which, The Avengers is going to have a fight on its hands now that Battleship has moved to the May 1 holiday. I am not sure I like that for both movies.

Battleship is being marketed as Transformers 4 over here so it'll be interesting if this pulls another Sanctum. I think The Avengers will still win though.

Men in Black will be interesting to watch. Lots of people want to see it over here. Snow White will do quite well with the female crowd. Last year, 3 romance films overperformed (Beastly, Don't Go Breaking My Heart, You Are the Apple of My Eye). Abraham Lincoln won't do well. Vampire movies don't really do robust business here. Even Twilight has been stuck in the 2m range.

No real intriguing match-ups until August 2. That looks like a death trap waiting to happen for Madagascar 3. We could see a 2.5m OW return for the top 3 if they all manage to overperform but right now I have it as Brave > Madagascar > Total Recall.

Ok for This Means War. This will do well on Friday and the weekend. Romancing in Thin Air had a mediocre drop.
