  1. here's my less orthodox ranking: 1. BVS 2. Man Of Steel 3. Wonder Woman 4. Aquaman 5. Justice League 6. Suicide Squad I did liked all of these though, Even suicide Squad and it's bad editing I found enjoyable, and I thought it was better than several MCU movies.

It's playing on only 131 screens. Its pre-sales are almost identical to the first film (1% higher), which is very impressive because sequels in these multi-part animated series' rarely match the success of the first film. If it does end up opening on par, or even higher than, the original, it's a testament to the loyalty and size of this franchise's devoted fanbase.Bohemian Rhapsody... It appears to be headed for a mostly flat weekend, again, in its tenth weekend of release. If the forecast is accurate, it'll end up achieving the sixth or seventh biggest tenth weekend on record. Its ten week multiplier will also be the highest on record (25.75) for any film after ten weeks in release. There's still no stopping this film at the box office.Creed II is looking good for a Top 4 debut, and based on early numbers, it'll more than double (possibly triple) the opening weekend of the first film. That does sound very impressive (and it is), but the first film didn't receive nearly as wide of a release as the new film, so it's not fair to compare the two films, unfortunately. Dragon Ball Super: Broly will probably see another fairly steep decline, and that's unlikely to change for the duration of its run. Not unexpected, of course, and it's still on track to surpass its predecessor to become the highest grossing film in the franchise.A Star is Born really could have used some more Golden Globes love, and unless it begins to sweep at the guilds, and finally at the Academy Awards, I'm afraid its run will soon come to an end in the market. Poorly timed release, it should have been in February or March.

Nearly everything is available for this past weekend, besides the actual for Love! Live Sunshine!!, but the majority of 12/29-30 is just an estimate. Therefore, the weekend % changes for 01/05-06 are technically estimates. The only official numbers released for the last weekend of December are the weekend grosses for the top 4 films (and they're rounded...), and the total (also rounded) for Bohemian Rhapsody. I'm doubtful that any more figures for the last weekend of Dec. will be released, but if they are, I'll update them in this post. Having said all of that... >Bohemian Rhapsody continues to have one of the best runs ever, and you could argue it's having the best run ever on record considering its running multiplier remains above every other film recorded (~2000-). Its ninth weekend is its first that's fallen below its opening weekend, but just barely (5% less), so it's still hard to project where the film may be headed, especially after its Golden Globe wins. A total above the ¥10 billion (~$90 million) uber-blockbuster milestone is 100% locked up, and I could see it reaching as high as ¥12 billion (~$110 million). >Ralph Breaks the Internet has been performing well, and will outgross the original film in a week or so. It's on track for a total around ¥4 billion ($35 million+). This will be Walt Disney Animation's fourth-consecutive film to decline in the market, but it'll still be a good total that's the standard milestone for most imported animated films that don't breakout. >Dragon Ball Super: Broly fell rather hard in its fourth weekend, but that's perhaps unsurprising since New Year gave it a pretty nice boost. Its four week total is 2.2% above its predecessor, Resurrection F, and I expect it'll remain ahead for the remainder of its run and become the highest grossing film in the franchise. Expect a total around ¥3.8 billion ($34/35 million). >Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is still holding on well, and after seven weeks in release, is tracking just 9% behind the original. It has run very consistent with the first film, and should finish around ¥6.7 billion (~$60 million). If it can manage to crawl to ¥6.87 billion, it'll outgross Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1, but that'll be difficult. Regardless, the film performed very well in Japan. >Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FOREVER, while as frontloaded as pretty much any other film in the long-running franchise, is on its way to becoming one of the highest grossing films in the series. I'll do some research in the coming weeks to see just how high it ranks.

    Frozen 2 over 1,5b WW

    Way out, I don't think Frozen has a broad enough audience to make this kind of number. The original made its money based on repeat business to give it legs so I don't think this will connect in quite the same way and it will end up with less than the original both DOM and OS.
