    4th - Wall E: 31 Votes, 1 First, 9 top 5, 5 top 10 862 points Previous List - 6th The highest finishing film to never be at number 1. In fact 4th was the highest it ever reached. To me, Wall E is another Up type film. Some of the best moments in all of Pixar, but also a... not underwhelming, but not all time great act to finish the film off. The opening half is incredible, but it does fall away on the spaceship and that is probably the difference between being 4th and maybe challenging the top 3. Essentially, Wall E is the I Am Legend of animation. A brilliant film until they brought other humans into the fray.

    7th - The Incredibles: 33 Votes, 5 top 5, 5 top 10 793 points Previous List - 4th Up until Coco turned up, this was my number 1 Pixar film. And I think the reason for that was that it is the most consistent film Pixar made up until that point. Other films like Up, Wall E, the Toy Stories, they have massive iconic moments, moments better than any single moment in The Incredibles. However, when those films' quality drops, I also think they fall just below The Incredibles also. Its also a pretty common observation to also quasi-consider this to be the good Fantastic Four film that Fox seem unable to make. Fun fact, this film once had quite a lead at the top of this table before falling away near the end. It seemed guaranteed to be top 3, but ended up a 'mere' 7th.

    1st - Inside Out: 33 Votes, 4 First, 9 top 5, 5 top 10 1005 points Previous List - 1st The film that brought Pixar back to its best. And I really love this film. I considered it top 3 Pixar when it first came out and I think it is still 4th at worst in my personal opinion. It is another film in the Coco, Incredibles Line that does not have a trough moment. It is consistent from start to finish and it also opens up a world of possibilities to maybe one day return to this concept. If I find myself doing this list for yet a 3rd time in 2020 (I've yet to actually ever initiate the poll ), I wonder if it will threepeat.

    2nd - The Lion King: 32 Votes, 3 First, 10 top 5, 5 top 10 988 points Previous List - 2nd My number 3 Disney Animation, My number 4 animated film full stop, and just a great film from the 90's. So the top 3 are unchanged from last time around, but it was changing backwards and forwards between the top 3 for list after list after list. 28 points separated the to 3 so just one more list with a strong leaning towards one over the other two could have resulted in a completely different top 3. Either Way, The Lion King is one of my favourite films full stop. I really hope Favreau pulls off something special next year, and we get a live action film somewhere close to this in quality.

    8th - Toy Story: 33 Votes, 6 top 5, 6 top 10 787 points Previous List - 7th It is rare that a film is revolutionary both technically and artistically, but Toy Story may well have accomplished that. As the first ever feature length CGI animation, Toy Story's place in history was sealed whether the film turned out decent or not. That it turned out to be one of the premier animations of a generation, meant that not only did it turn the world's attention to the animation style, it also introduced the general audience to Pixar and began a love affair that lasts to this day. Personally I consider this to be the second best of the Toy Story films, I won't say which over is where just yet though.

    3rd - Spirited Away: 32 Votes, 2 First, 13 top 5, 3 top 10 977 points Previous List - 3rd It was always going to be the top finishing Japanese film, and there were moments it looked like it could win it all. In the end, it came up just short. Personally I am okay with that as I think the next two films are both better (My flag was planted in a different Japanese garden), but this is still a wonderfully imaginative and magical animated film and I can understand why people love it. However, I personally can't see past Spirited Away being a very pretty bedtime time story compared to the deeper and more complete stories of positions 1 and 2. But that also comes down to Miyazaki not quite being the god in my eyes that it is to others. He is one of the great animators, but he has never made a film that I want to scream about from the rafters.

    5th - Toy Story 3: 30 Votes, 2 First, 8 top 5, 5 top 10 841 points Previous List - 10th Now don't get me wrong, I still think this film is great. But I consider it a top 25-30 all time film whereas 1 is a top 20 and number 2 threatens the top 10. It has a lot of high moments, that furnace scene was excellent, as is the one linked above. But I also felt that this film had just a little bit more filler than the two before it and after having Woody's journey and Buzz's Journey traveled in the first two films, it was just a little more of a stretch to dig out a third story to finish the trilogy. I do wonder if they can produce anything even close to this for part 4.

    6th - Toy Story 2: 33 Votes, 2 First, 5 top 5, 6 top 10 829 points Previous List - 11th And this is the best Toy Story film. It is funnier than Toy Story 3, and it is more emotional than Toy Story 1. It is the most complete Toy Story film in the Trilogy, and if every Toy Story film was at this level, then it could in fact challenge Kung Fu Panda as the best animated trilogy. However as great as this one is, the slight drop from 1 and 2 down to the upcoming 3rd, means that it still has to settle for second place on that list (Unless HTTYD3 bumps it down even further). Regardless of my unpopular opinion above, there are no bad films at this point (the last one of those came back at 11th place), and this is one film that I am happy to see break into the top 10. It means that there are maybe one or two folks out there that share my view of the one true Toy Story Quality order: Toy Story 2 Toy Story Toy Story 3

    28. The Omen (1976) (50 points) Director: Richard Donner Screenwriter: David Seltzer Starring: Gregory Peck, Lee Remick, David Warner, and Billie Whitelaw Synopsis: Mysterious deaths surround an American ambassador. Could the child that he is raising actually be the Antichrist? The Devil's own son? Box Office: 60.9M 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, 62 on Metacritic Nominated for 2 Academy Awards, winning one for Best Original Score Submissions Received: 8 Average Position: 17th Top 5 Placements: 1 The Omen was one of the most popular horror movies in the 1970s. This was Richard Donner’s breakout film and landed him Superman two years later. Something The Omen is notable for is that it was one of the first mainstream films to heavily feature the Antichrist concept. Rosemary’s Baby toyed around with this idea seven years earlier, but that film portrays the Antichrist as the mere result of a cult tampering with a child. In The Omen, Damien is definitively the Antichrist, and chaos ensues. This is a film audiences loved back when it first released, and to this day, it is still extremely popular among horror fans. The Omen got a nice boost on the countdown thanks to a second place submission. Additionally, 7/8 votes were 22nd or higher, showing off a fair amount of passion for this film.

    27. The VVitch: A New-England Folktale (2016) (53 points) Director and Screenwriter: Robert Eggers Starring: Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Ellie Grainger, and Lucas Dawson Synopsis: A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession. Box Office: 40.4M 91% on Rotten Tomatoes, 83 on Metacritic 16th on Box Office Theory’s Top 25 of 2016 Submissions Received: 9 Average Position: 19th Top 5 Placements: 1 I have slowly been coming to the conclusion since its release that The Witch is in the top 3 horror films released over the past three years. It is a film that relishes so much in its environment, and even though there is only one “jumpscare” in the entire film (Black Phillip is bae), the movie’s sense of dread is enough to terrify you. Anya Taylor-Joy gives a breakout performance as Thomasin, a teenager who must deal with being looked down upon by her parents in her family’s time of peril. This makes The Witch a close, tight-knit drama in additional to the supernatural horror film it already is because you sympathize so much with Thomasin’s unfortunate position. This is a film that has an instantly recognizable air to it, and I do not think any other horror film has done what Robert Eggers did with The Witch. It truly is a modern day horror masterpiece. The Witch received tons of love from users. There were two top ten placements (one of which was in the top 3), and most other users tended to stick it in the upper half of their lists. It shares the same number of points as our next film, but like other instances on the countdown, it had the advantage with one extra list.

    CHAPTER 12: KINGDOM COME December 4-6: Time for 'Sir Thymes Rhyme' to Shine Taking advantage of its frontloaded rival, 'Sir Thymes Rhyme' rushed to first place on the post-Thanksgiving weekend, managing a drop under 55% to boot. It should play fairly well into the holiday season without any other "just for kids" options. 'Home Invasion' opened along expectations, but with the C+ Cinemascore, it may not last too long, especially with a little film coming later this month. 'Food Wars' continues its healthy run, while 'A Black Man, A White Man' struggles in its expansion. Sir Thymes Rhyme - $22,035,879 (2nd week) (-54.7%) Silent Hill: Restless Dreams - $20,515,430 (2nd week) (-62.5%) Home Invasion - $17,680,973 (NEW) Food Wars - $14,694,320 (3rd week) (-46.7%) Santa Claus: Ultimate Badass - $8,540,075 (3rd week) (-48.3%) Guys and Dolls - $7,111,683 (5th week) (-49.4%) Crysis - $5,830,112 (4th week) (-52.4%) A Wish for Wings that Work - $4,729,950 (5th week) (-45.9%) The Square Mile - $3,136,057 (7th week) (-43.7%) Starlit Highway - $2,066,314 (6th week) (-44.8%) A Black Man, A White Man - $235,011 (2nd week) (+26.6%) December 11-13: 'Dogs' Bark Softly, 'Thymes' Performs Second Encore at #1 'Sir Thymes Rhyme' easily repeated at the box office, thanks to the underwhelming performance of 'The Dogs of Babel'. With mixed reviews and a B- Cinemascore, the film didn't play completely well with its unorthodox premise that turned off some audiences. Perhaps the lack of smaller scale adult dramas could help it over the holiday season. 'Food Wars' continues to creep up, while 'Silent Hill 2''s crossing of $200m becomes more and more on an uncertainty. Sir Thymes Rhyme - $14,914,086 (3rd week) (-32.3%) The Dogs of Babel - $13,897,240 (NEW) Silent Hill: Restless Dreams - $10,674,538 (3rd week) (-48.0%) Food Wars - $9,376,950 (4th week) (-36.2%) Home Invasion - $8,086,770 (2nd week) (-54.3%) Santa Claus: Ultimate Badass - $5,367,965 (4th week) (-37.1%) Guys and Dolls - $4,679,883 (6th week) (-34.2%) A Wish for Wings that Work - $3,551,324 (6th week) (-24.9%) Crysis - $3,458,150 (5th week) (-40.7%) The Square Mile - $2,258,630 (8th week) (-28.0%) A Black Man, A White Man - $142,670 (3rd week) (-39.3%) December 18-20: 'Spark' Lights Up The Holiday The most wonderful time of the year indeed. The $112.7m 3-day opening may not seem like much for the wildly anticipated 'Spark: Beyond the Sky', but you can blame the film's early numbers ($70m on Wednesday and $33m on Thursday) for rushing demand to the threequel. The film played across all races, genders, and age groups perfectly and scored an A Cineamscore, back to the level of 'Rising' after 'Homeward' got an A-. The film is the biggest of the season so far, and we're super excited to see how it plays out. While it didn't score 'Rise of Lotor' numbers, at least it isn't projected to, the studio is beyond ecstatic with these numbers. As expected, a lot of films took a big hit by it, but 'A Black Man, A White Man' made it to a wide release with 1k screens exactly. Audiences weren't big fans, giving it a C- Cinemascore. We expect it to crash and burn after the holidays, while most theaters are already putting it on their smallest screen. Spark: Beyond the Sky - $112,713,659/$215,637,201 (NEW) Sir Thymes Rhyme - $8,737,490 (4th week) (-41.4%) The Dogs of Babel - $7,339,842 (2nd week) (-47.2%) Food Wars - $5,401,263 (5th week) (-42.4%) Silent Hill: Restless Dreams - $5,389,751 (4th week) (-49.5%) Home Invasion - $3,322,859 (3rd week) (-58.9%) Santa Claus: Ultimate Badass - $2,992,356 (5th week) (-44.3%) Guys and Dolls - $2,866,579 (7th week) (-38.7%) A Wish for Wings that Work - $2,253,774 (7th week) (-36.5%) A Black Man, A White Man - $1,925,537 (4th week) (+1249.7%) December 25-27: 'Kingdom' Shines; 'Fortnight' Revolutionary, 'Spark' Survives While 'Spark: Beyond the Sky' didn't struggle to repeat itself over the weekend (despite being #2 on Wednesday), the openers fared quite well. 'Kingdom of the Sun' managed a $90m 5-day and will play well for audiences wanting a more light hearted piece of fun over the holidays. The film earned an A Cinemascore. 'Fortnight', a Spielberg directed film on the American Revolution, drew in older audiences and even families in its exciting adaptation of history. The film also earned an impressive A+ Cineamscore. While these three films drove much of the traffic over the Holiday weekend, we saw strong holds for 'Sir Thymes Rhyme' and 'Food Wars' either way. A very fun way to end the year! Spark: Beyond the Sky - $70,943,865 (2nd week) (-37.1%) Kingdom of the Sun - $62,750,541/$89,454,763 (NEW) Fortnight - $42,682,915 (NEW) Sir Thymes Rhyme - $8,400,534 (5th week) (-3.9%) The Dogs of Babel - $6,566,002 (3rd week) (-10.5%) Food Wars - $5,495,023 (5th week) (+1.8%) Silent Hill: Restless Dreams - $4,879,377 (5th week) (-9.7%) A Black Man, A White Man - $2,600,873 (5th week) (+35.1%) Home Invasion - $2,552,873 (4th week) (-23.2%) Guys and Dolls - $2,514,361 (8th week) (-12.3%) Welp, that's actuals everyone!

    https://deadline.com/2018/10/moviegoers-do-the-fandango-as-bohemian-rhapsody-outpaces-a-star-is-born-in-advance-ticket-sales-freddie-mercury-biopic-eyes-40m-potential-start-1202492220/ The appeal for the band Queen is multi-generational, and doesn’t just pertain to the original hippie-turned-yuppie fans of the 1970s into 1980s, but extends to the core fans’ sons and daughters, and ultimately, yes, their grandchildren. Talk about demand: Exhibitors have been ringing up Fox for extra screens, and we hear that Bohemian Rhapsody is now looking at a footprint of 4,000 theaters or more. So it comes as no surprise to hear that Bohemian Rhapsody is already Fandango’s highest advance ticket seller of the year for a movie musical, besting Warner Bros.’/Live Nation’s A Star Is Born and Universal’s Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again at the same time in their sales cycle. Conservative expectations is that Bohemian Rhapsody opens to $35M, but it’s a no brainer if it sails past $40M per industry sources.

Pretty Cure: All Stars Memories saved the October box office from having no strong openers, and earned the biggest debut at the box office since August. The 25th film in the Precure film franchise which celebrates the franchise's 15th Anniversary sold an impressive 309,781 admissions over the weekend across 230 screens. This is the biggest debut in the long-running franchise by a considerable margin, besting the previous record held by, interestingly, the most recent film in the series from this past March by 56%. All the films in this franchise are very frontloaded, so expect a total near ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million). >The Cat Traveling Chronicle debuted in second place, selling 82,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 321 screens; and 107,000 admissions since opening on Friday. Again, nothing to really say here except that it's the standard low opening this time of the year. >Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer continues to play very well in its 4D expansion, achieving its 17th non-consecutive weekend in the Top 10 in its 29th weekend of release. It also exceeded the ¥9 billion milestone over the weekend, becoming the thirteenth animated film in history to reach the mark. The 4D expansion is scheduled to end next week, so I don't think it has enough in it to overtake Code Blue for the 2018 Yearly Crown, but let's see if Toho extends it given how successful the expansion has been. Thankfully, October is about to come to a close, and while November isn't much stronger than October at the box office in Japan, it usually has one or two films that keep things interesting until December (one of the strongest months) arrives.

    9th - BEauty and the Beast: 31 Votes, 2 First, 1 top 5, 11 top 10 762 points Previous List - 5th To my young pre-teen mind, this was always the 'girl' Disney film to Aladdin's 'boy' Disney film. That's a more outdated view to have come 2018, when everybody is allowed to like everything, but that remnant of an idea will likely forever stay slightly in my mind. It is probably why I have Aladdin as an all time top 5 animation, but BATB languishes around 30th. On a wider scale, the two films are hard to split. 31 votes to 30, 14 top 10 votes to 12. only 16 points apart after all the lists. Both the films have big fan bases and maybe just maybe some of that fan base made a choice of one over the over depending on what type of story you prefer to get behind. Kind of puts them as 3.75 quadrant films, and not 4 quadrants that many of what is to come reached...

Halloween far better than I expected! A lot of domestic productions in the chart, too - nice. Despite other family film's increases, The Incredibles 2 went down again … bumpy run! Next weekend: Two openers with ambitions for the top spot - Bohemian Rhapsody comes with some buzz, The Nutcracker and the Four Realms with less but it's still Disney. And Halloween might show a surprising hold, some other of this year's horror releases have done so already. With weather on the rainier side and cool, family stuff should also have good holds - hopefully a strong overall weekend with a wide variety of attractive releases!

    25. The Blair Witch Project (1999) (53.5 points) Directors and Screenwriters: Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez Starring: Heather Donahue, Michael C. Williams, and Joshua Leonard Synopsis: Three film students vanish after traveling into a Maryland forest to film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend, leaving only their footage behind. Box Office: 248.6M 87% on Rotten Tomatoes, 81 on Metacritic Submissions Received: 10 Average Position: 18th Number One Placements: 1 Top 5 Placements: 2 As I mentioned with the last entry, we have another breakthrough indie horror film on the countdown. This time, it is The Blair Witch Project. By this point, independent cinema has skyrocketed. Indie studios like Miramax, Fox Searchlight, and Sony Pictures Classics were booming on the verge of the new millennium, and independent cinema was providing bold new ideas from filmmakers. The Blair Witch Project premiered at the Sundance Film Festival with immense buzz for its found footage style, and for the next 7 months, even more hype was building online. The film managed to achieve over a 4.5x from its wide opening weekend, and although it never managed to hit number one (another horror film somewhere on the countdown was one of the main reasons why), it had strong weekends throughout August. Audiences were intrigued by the film’s premise but had varying reactions; however, it was a true EVENT that people had to see. Today, reception is still mixed. Obviously you have a lot of people that love it as evident by its placement right in the middle of our countdown, but there are others who feel the film is not scary and just wanders around in circles (I am in the latter camp fwiw). Even with that in mind, The Blair Witch Project still revolutionized the genre and did something new, and that cannot be ignored. The Blair Witch Project was a big passion pick. It received a number one vote along with three more top ten placements, and three of the other votes were in top twenty-fives. As I said, this is a love it or hate it film, and those who love it really love it.

    https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/empire-review-year-avengers-infinity-war-covers-revealed/ Empire’s Review Of The Year Avengers: Infinity War Covers Revealed Oh, snap. The dust is beginning to settle on 2018, and Empire’s December 2018 issue is about to make its way into the world – our Review of The Year edition, taking a look back at an incredible 12 months of movies. As part of that you’ll find our list of the Best Films of 2018 – take a look at the full list that we’ve revealed over here – with Empire’s contributors submitting their personal Top 10s, all crunched and quantified through a spreadsheet into one mega-list. And at the top? Coming in way ahead of even its closest competitor was Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel’s astonishingly epic blockbuster delivering spectacle, character, and huge emotional beats. So when it came to the cover slot, it was only right that Infinity War got star billing – and with our subscriber’s cover, designed by Jacey, there was only one thing to be done. Mr. Stark, we don’t feel so good… For non-subscribers, you can pick up the issue when it hits the shelves on Thursday 1 November – and you’ll find the likes of Thanos, Cap, Iron Man, Black Panther, Thor, Black Widow and Shuri on the cover. https://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/best-movies-2018/ 1. Avengers: Infinity War It had to be, didn’t it? No, not just because it’s a Marvel movie – but because it’s the Marvel-est Marvel movie Marvel could have Marvelled. And it’s marvellous. For all the MCU’s previous successes, Infinity War was a huge risk – how do you combine that many characters, that many plot threads, plus an untested CGI mega-villain into one film that, to an extent, stands alone, while also paying off on ten years of previous movies? Frankly, it’s a miracle that it’s not a complete mess – that it’s as incredible as it is is god-level stuff. Infinity War is a blockbuster working at maximum capacity for 150 minutes – constantly delivering on character, on spectacle, on drama, on emotion, even on laughs for its entire runtime. The action sequences are fluid, propulsive and edge-of-your-seat exciting, it’s packed with instantly-iconic images, and everything about Thanos – Josh Brolin’s performance, the incredibly nuanced rendering, the empathetic storytelling – is a triumph. No matter what Avengers 4 brings, Infinity War is a success beyond even our own mountainous expectations. Oh snap, indeed. Edit: Grrrrr. Photos won't embed so click the links for new covers

    I'm ready to admit I was wrong when I said earlier this year that Bohemian was heading towards a 25m OW and wouldn't even approach Straight Outta Compton. It still won't top SOC and it won't hit @WrathOfHan's high end, but 40m OW looks good for it and that's a huge number. The commonalities between it and Compton are simple: they were advertised like blockbusters, not "adult dramas" or Oscar contenders. They were promoted by the surviving band members and had spot on casting like Malek and Ice Cube Jr. And even if Queen and NWA are no more popular or influential than James Brown, Tupac, Ray Charles, or Johnny Cash, they have the kind of crowd pleasing mega hits that can still hook an audience in more easily. Though honestly if that Tupac biopic hadn't looked and been terrible it would have done over 35m OW too IMO. Came close despite pretty much everything working against it.

    Blankments Productions Will Take You To the North Pole, Thanksgiving Y5 After the film being in official development for a while, Blankments Productions is excited to reveal the reboot/sequel of The Santa Clause, coming out next Thanksgiving. A family comedy like its predecessors, it will take after sequels such as Halloween (2018) and Rocky Balboa with being simply titled The Santa Clause. The film is directed by Jake Kasdan and written by Kasdan, Nicholas Stoller and Kevin Hart. The three writers in addition to Dwayne Johnson will executive produce the film as well. When Blankments Productions initially purchased the rights to The Santa Clause, Tim Allen, along with other original key creative minds for the franchise were contacted for their ideas on the direction of the franchise. Although BP ultimately decided to go with an idea by Kevin Hart, Tim Allen was still contacted for a role. Although a little miffed his idea was passed over, Allen agreed he could not take a lead role in the film, citing conflicts with his busy schedule as Secretary of Energy for Supreme Leader Trump. However, he has given the film his blessing and is still excited to take part in the film in a supporting role. The film will star Kevin Hart as Kal Knight, an aspiring actor and stand-up comedian somewhat based on Hart himself. Dwayne Johnson will play George Roberts, his agent and best friend, and Kerry Washington will also star as Rachel Knight, Kal’s wife. Priah Ferguson will play Maya Knight, Kal’s daughter, and Tim Allen will return to his role as Scott Calvin, AKA Santa Claus. Elizabeth Mitchell and Eric Lloyd will also return to their roles as Carol Newman-Calvin and Charlie Calvin. The film follows Kal during his first Christmas in Los Angeles after making his big break by booking a supporting role in Phoney Friends, a hit TBS comedy. Kal lives with Maya at George’s large mansion. When George books him for a stand-up gig on December 25 at one of Hollywood’s biggest nightclubs, it looks like they’ll be unable to spend Christmas with Rachel, who is stuck in Chicago for work. However, on Christmas Eve, Kal, Maya and George hear a mysterious noise from their roof, and after they investigate it, things will never be the same. Blankments Productions is moving forward with an innovative idea to kick off the marketing of The Santa Clause, which is hoped to be the holiday event of Y5. On Christmas Day Y4, Blankments Productions will exclusively debut the teaser for the film in theaters. AMC, Regal, Landmark, Cinemark, National Amusements, Marcus and Harkins will all place the teaser in front of every PG or PG-13 film playing for one day only. This teaser will not be released online immediately, instead only going with a teaser poster to be released on Christmas Day. The teaser will be released online at some point in early Y5, in addition to being officially attached to a film. The teaser will be sent out tonight to the theater chains though, as so to ensure that the screening quality is in tip-top shape for Christmas Day. The Santa Clause is scheduled for release on November 24, as a prime family attraction for the holiday weekend and throughout all of December.

    Only one significant new opener, a local history pic called Oma maa, detailing the post-war years from 1945 to 1952 (Helsinki Olympics), posted 34 252 admissions over an FSS frame. The portion of previews of the total OW was somewhat heavy, a tad over 15%. The holdovers: Halloween, interestingly, did not show frontloading, dropping only 29.3%! That's fantastic and definitely, for me, an unexpectedly good drop. A Star Is Born dropped only 15.9% from its opening weekend. Nice, but now the movie needs to show a bit of fortitude + robustness because Bohemian Rhapsody is opening this coming weekend. Johnny English Strikes Again dropped harder this time after being boosted by the holiday previously. A 32.9% drop is still good, though, even if in the end JESA won't come close to the totals of the previous movies. If this was some random, non-franchise action comedy movie, JESA's numbers wouldn't be disappointing (at all), but as a franchise movie, when compared to the first two movies, the drop-off is quite dramatic. Why that is, I don't know. But, Finland can take some comfort from the fact that, adjusted for inflation, the OS grosses for this series have declined with each sequel. While Reborn did nominally better OS than the first one ($151.7m vs $132.5m), in adjusted dollars Reborn was about $10m short of the first one. And now, JESA might nominally go a bit above the first movie, but the adjusted figure ($181.8m) is hopelessly out of reach. Thankfully these movies exhibit good budget control, meaning, at least in theory they could keep on churning out these movies "forever". Olavi Virta dropped 32.1% from last weekend. In and of itself solid, but it's kind of disheartening to see the movie already post a well under 10k admissions (7 965) weekend. A movie about a legendary singer now looks unlikely to break 200k admissions. If the worst comes to pass, it might not even pass 150k admissions! Somehow the movie is not connecting quite as it should. Venom continued its very consistent ways with a 35.4% drop this time. It's touch and go whether the 100k admissions milestone will be crossed this coming weekend. If not, then the following weekend will do the job. Smallfoot dropped 32.5% from last weekend. A somewhat harsher drop was expected after the previous, holiday-inflated frame. Bizarrely, Smallfoot now has the exact admissions figure of 44 444! I'm not making this up. 😆 Christopher Robin is having a tough time at the box office with a very harsh 49.4% drop this time. Even with a holiday-boosted last frame this drop is massively disappointing. Maybe the movie is too niche for mainstream audiences, even with the Disney branding behind it. Unless it gets some extraordinary late legs, CR will probably finish with slightly over 50k admissions.

    26. Night of the Living Dead (1966) (53 points) Director: George A. Romero Screenwriters: John Russo and George A. Romero Starring: Judith O’Dea, Duane Jones, Marilyn Eastman, Karl Hardman, Judith Ridley, and Keith Wayne Synopsis: There is panic throughout the nation as the dead suddenly come back to life. The film follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from these bloodthirsty, flesh-eating monsters. Box Office: 30M 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, 88 on Metacritic Submissions Received: 10 Average Position: 24th Number One Placements: 1 Top 5 Placements: 1 George A. Romero might as well be considered the creator of the zombie craze. Night of the Living Dead was notable for turning zombies into flesh-eating creatures, and this type of zombie has become the primary characterization for the creature ever since the release of this film. Made independently on a miniscule budget with Romero handling cinematography and editing in addition to directing, Night of the Living Dead is a groundbreaking film that became a defining voice in independent cinema. Audiences came out in droves to see this film, and it adjusts to over 230M in 2018. For a film made and released without the backing of a major studio, that is already an impressive total, but when you add in the fact that independent filmmaking was rarely attempted back in the 60s, that makes the film’s success even more impressive (the next film on the countdown is a notable indie success as well). Night of the Living Dead is a staple of the horror genre and one of the most important films ever made. Night of the Living Dead was a popular pick among users. Its position on the list is largely thanks to a first-place vote; had it not gotten that vote, it would have been down one spot and tied with The Omen point-wise. Half of the lists with this film on it submitted this in the bottom half.

    Weekend Placement's, October 25th to 28th Venom Halloween Smallfoot Contra el Demonio Peppermint A quiet and very weak weekend. The local horror movie Contra el Demonio joined the long list of local flops this year. Despite having basically the widest release available for horror movies, it still debuted behind Smallfoot fifth weekend... Honestly, the fact that it took this long to get a local horror movie (despite being cheap to produce and a very popular genre in the country) and it ended up being a generic exorcist story that has been done a billion times by Hollywood illustrates perfectly why local films fare so badly at the box office. The weekly data is late yet again and I have given up on getting them at regular intervals, I will just post them whenever they are published. On another hand, the top movie this weekend likely grossed at most 250k USD (probably less) which is very very low. November is usually one of the worst months for the Box Office but I have faith in Fantastic Beast and Wreck-It Ralph 2 (also the combination of Bohemian Rhapsody + Nutcracker should be decent enough this next weekend)

    30. Frankenstein (1931) (44.5 points) Director: James Whale Screenwriters: Screenplay by Francis Edward Faragoh, Garrett Fort, Robert Florey, and John Russell, Story by John L. Balderston and Richard Schayer Synopsis: An obsessed scientist assembles a living being from parts of exhumed corpses. Box Office: 12M 100% on Rotten Tomatoes Submissions Received: 8 Average Position: 18th Top 5 Placements: 1 IT’S ALIVE! Frankenstein is the last classic monster movie to make our countdown. Generally considered to be the best of the classic monster films along with its first sequel (which already appeared on the list), Frankenstein contains revolutionary makeup design and lighting. It was a massive hit with audiences and critics and adjusts to over 200M in 2018. This also kickstarted Boris Karloff’s rise to becoming a horror icon that included several characters in the franchise including the Monster and Imhotep in The Mummy. Frankenstein had lots of support on lists. 7/8 lists had this in the top 25, and there were three top 10 placements.

It opened far worse than any film of the 'Conjuring' franchise but it was on par with 'The Meg' from earlier this year. It also opened better than previous instalments of the 'Halloween' franchise, such as 'Halloween' (2007), which sold 6,700 admissions in Athens, and 'Halloween II' (2009), which sold 5,500 admissions in Athens. 'Hunter Killer' was the only other film to open above 10K admissions, although 'Cold War' made it past said mark when including last weekend's previews. 'Venom' will devour 200K admissions as early as next weekend. 'Smallfoot' scored the best hold of the Top 10. Overall, it was another very quiet weekend, despite the national holiday. October tanked and so 2018 has fallen further behind 2017, 2016 and 2015. It is now trailing 2012 too, by 1.3%, and, without a 'Bond' sequel, a 'Hobbit' film or a 'Star Wars' film, 2018 is on a trajectory that will most likely miss 10 million admissions.

    10th - Aladdin: 30 Votes, 2 First, 4 top 5, 6 top 10 746 points Previous List - 9th Aladdin is my personal number 2 Disney animation. And there are a number of reasons for this. Be it the great soundtrack, the fun story, or the OG wonderful Robin Williams performance, Aladdin is a gem and deserving of its place in the top 10. It was a tough ask to hope it finished much higher than this as there are some serious support waves for everything still to come. It will be interesting to see how much this love for the animation translates into goodwill to potentially see the live action version next year...

    I agree wholeheartedly In addition: slight to huge differences in how to feel about different movies will also be based on differences in quality of the translations (text and voices) plus differences per culture in especial what is 'funny' and so on. Those differences about humor can even vary from region to region within the same country, incl smaller countries.
