  1. I will be interested to know what movies they play, are they gonna bring back the stuff we missed for limited engagements, or are they just gonna draw a line under that and press on only with new releases?
  2. If I'm reading this correctly, Melbourne cinemas not coming back until 80% https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/victorias-roadmap-delivering-national-plan
  3. Got my second dose of AstraZeneca early, on September first! Fully ready to start living life normally again.
  4. Still thinking about whether to do this, it would be nice to be fully vaxed a month early, but I'd still prefer the protection from the full 12 weeks. Might split the difference and do it at ten.
  5. Most recent weekend And lest we forget how far we've come, here is this week one year ago
  6. Last update! This list represents the twelve tumultuous months of the post-reopening back in July 2020. Somewhere in these numbers are the effects of the many lockdowns and restrictions imposed in that time, from Melbourne's marathon lockdown 2.0 to Sydney's sparkling confinement and all manner of silliness between. And yet despite all that it's actually a pretty respectable list in box office terms. Indeed the top 50's 358.6m is more than calendar year 2020's 328m. 1 Godzilla vs. Kong 25/03/21 27,870,000 2 Wonder Woman 1984 26/12/20 24,860,000 3 Peter Rabbit 2 25/03/21 2
  7. Technically yes, but nothing so far suggests that it will get out of hand. The majority of cases are linked and testing numbers are high. The reason for the lock down is mainly precautionary I suspect, and due the large number of venues that could see substantial transmission occur. One of the venues on the list released just recently is the old favourite Crossroads Hotel, centre of a large outbreak last year (almost to the day in fact).
  8. It opens July 8th and lockdown ends 23:59 on July 9, so that does include first two days of Black Widow. The rest of the country is unaffected however, this is only for Greater Sydney, Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Wollongong. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-06-26/nsw-covid-lockdown-expanded/100246622
  9. Now ALL of Sydney is locked down for two weeks, so box office will definitely see a slide.
  10. Box office should be depressed a bit for the next two weeks as parts of Sydney are locked down, although even parts of Sydney that aren't locked down will likely see reduced business as people avoid crowded areas.
  11. Can finally update this list, been waiting nearly a month to do so. Six more movies have made it in that month. 1 Godzilla vs. Kong 25/03/21 27,860,000 2 Wonder Woman 1984 26/12/20 24,860,000 3 The Croods: A New Age 26/12/20 21,490,000 4 Peter Rabbit 2 25/03/21 21,490,000 5 The Dry 01/01/21 20,740,000 6 Tenet 27/08/20 16,210,000 **7 A Quiet Place Part II 27/05/21 11,750,000** 8 Tom and Jerry 01/04/21 10,660,000 9 Raya and the Last Dragon 04/03/21 10,190,000 10 War with Grandpa 03/12/20 10,120,000 11 Trolls World Tour 17/09/20
  12. Between the two video game movies released this year, I'm surprised that Mortal Kombat did significantly better than Monster Hunter considering how mediocre it was.
  13. 1 Godzilla vs. Kong 25/03/21 27,570,000 2 Wonder Woman 1984 26/12/20 24,860,000 3 The Croods: A New Age 26/12/20 21,490,000 4 Peter Rabbit 2 25/03/21 20,780,000 5 The Dry 01/01/21 20,720,000 6 Tenet 27/08/20 16,210,000 7 Tom and Jerry 01/04/21 10,140,000 8 War with Grandpa 03/12/20 10,120,000 9 Raya and the Last Dragon 04/03/21 9,970,000 10 Trolls World Tour 17/09/20 9,390,000 11 Mortal Kombat 22/04/21 8,840,000 12 Penguin Bloom 21/01/21 7,500,000 13 The Witches 10/12/20 6,160,000 14 Wrath of Man 29/04/21 5,940,000 15 The Li
  14. First film I saw twice in theatres! Definitely one of my favourite from the 2000s, although I haven't seen it in a while. I daresay though that I probably don't need to see again as it's one of those movies that's burned into my brain.
  15. Another update. YTD box office should be around 220m-odd. 1 Godzilla vs. Kong 25/03/21 27,330,000 2 Wonder Woman 1984 26/12/20 24,860,000 3 The Croods: A New Age 26/12/20 21,490,000 4 The Dry 01/01/21 20,710,000 5 Peter Rabbit 2 25/03/21 20,080,000 6 Tenet 27/08/20 16,210,000 7 War with Grandpa 03/12/20 10,120,000 8 Tom and Jerry 01/04/21 9,890,000 9 Raya and the Last Dragon 04/03/21 9,830,000 10 Trolls World Tour 17/09/20 9,390,000 11 Mortal Kombat 22/04/21 8,290,000 12 Penguin Bloom 21/01/21 7,500,000 13 The Witches 10/1
  16. A new cinema opened in Edmondson Park, just recently, in Ed Square shopping centre. It's got six screens, two Vmax and four regular, and it's quite nice. I've gone there twice now to see Mortal Kombat (poor) and Wrath of Man (a bit serious but not bad), it's now my closest theatre, so I'll probably be going there a lot. The whole centre is done up very nicely, and it's one of the few examples we have here in Australia (at least in Sydney) of building the infrastructure first, then putting everything else in. The South West Rail Link opened back in 2015 and at the time Edmondson Park Station wa
  17. I'd estimate the YTD box office to be around $205m after four months, more than half the $401.2m made all last year. So the recovery, at least in Australia, is going quite well. The box office still isn't what it was pre-COVID, but we're slowly getting there.
  18. And then there were fifty! We finally have fifty movies that have surpassed $1m in the pandemic era (since cinemas reopened at the beginning of July last year). You can see the gradual inflation of the number one movie, from Tenet which opened to ~2.5m and took six weeks to surpass 10m and 16 weeks to surpass $15m, to WW84 which reached 15m after two weeks and capped out just under 25m to GvK which as Jajang says will finish a bit shy of 30m. All Warners films too. 1 Godzilla vs. Kong 25/03/21 26,850,000 2 Wonder Woman 1984 26/12/20 24,860,000 3 The Croods: A New A
  19. Godzilla up to 20.8m now. It's still school holidays so weekdays will be good this week also.
  20. It's school holidays, inflates the weekdays. In 2019, Easter was later in April.
