    Dr. Seuss' The Grinch | Nov. 9 2018

    Forbes said Illumination's Grinch is the highest Christmas themed movie of all time. Variety, Deadline etc all reporting the same. Second is Home Alone with 476m. I think their criteria is that the film is outwardly Christmas related (ie in the promotion, trailer, posters and story)

    Total Lifetime Grosses Domestic: $269,779,855 53.9% + Foreign: $230,717,898 46.1% = Worldwide: $500,497,753

    THE GRINCH

    FORBES THE GRINCH going to pass the unadjusted $271m total of Sing (but not its $634m global take) from late 2016/early 2017, so it’s got that going for it. Oh, and random trivia alert (and the reason for this post): The Grinch is now the biggest-grossing Christmas movie ever in unadjusted-for-inflation worldwide earnings. Take that, Home Alone! https://www.forbes.com/sites/scottmendelson/2019/01/07/box-office-grinch-benedict-cumberbatch-christmas-macaulay-culkin-home-alone-iron-man-3/#41fd89691755

    Dr. Seuss' The Grinch | Nov. 9 2018

    Great record! Grinch is now the highest-grossing Christmas-themed pic of all time and the top Seuss adaptation. Worldwide, “Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch” was the highest-grossing opening for a Christmas-themed movie and has since become the highest-grossing Christmas-themed movie ever — as well as the biggest Dr. Seuss film ever. https://www.thewrap.com/dr-seuss-the-grinch-surpasses-500-million-at-worldwide-box-office/

    THE GRINCH

    DHD confirms the all-time record for a Christmas film: ‘The Grinch’ Steals Across $500M At Worldwide Box Office With Tuesday’s numbers included, Illumination and Universal Pictures’ The Grinchsteered the sleigh across the half-billion mark worldwide. The split is $270Mdomestic and $231M at the international box office for $501M global. This is the 6th title from the folks at Chris Meledandri’s animation powerhouse to reach $500M. Domestically known as Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch, the Benedict Cumberbatch-voiced update on the Christmas classic opened No. 1 with $67.6M in November. That gave Illumination its 7th No. 1 bow with the movie going on to become the 6th highest-grossing title of 2018 and the 2nd biggest animated film of the year in North America. Overseas, where Dr Seuss is not well-known outside the English-speaking markets and Germany, the movie was titled simply The Grinch and has remained in the Top 10 for nine consecutive weeks. It opened No. 1 in 30 territories, including the UK, France, Australia, Spain, Mexico, Norway, India, Thailand, Vietnam, New Zealand, Hungary and Ukraine. Globally, the Yarrow Cheney/Scott Mosier-directed pic scored the biggest bow for a Christmas-themed film and went on to become the highest-grossing Christmas-themed pic of all time and the top Seuss adaptation. The Grinch is the story of a big green grump who sets out to steal Christmas, only to find his heart touched by little Cindy Lou Who and her selfless yuletide wish. For their work on the film, Meledandri and longtime collaborator Janet Healy recently received a PGA nomination. Healy told Deadline in October that a big takeaway from the story is the “power of inclusion, diversity. Also, the importance of community and tradition… But, even more so there’s the redemptive power of forgiveness. It really speaks to what kindness means and how joy and love and compassion are so important. Not only at Christmas, but for all of us, it’s a time to make the world a better place.” Next up this summer, Illumination and Universal will go (back) to the dogs with The Secret Life of Pets 2, the anticipated follow-up to 2016’s $875.5M worldwide grosser.

    Tuesday Numbers: AQM $3.9M +51%

    Very impressive: Globally, THE GRINCH is now the highest-grossing Christmas-themed pic of all time and the top Seuss adaptation. https://deadline.com/2019/01/the-grinch-crosses-500-million-worldwide-box-office-1202532071/

    THE GRINCH

    I think The Grinch is now the highest grossing Christmas film (animated or live action) worldwide of all time. Home Alone was like 473m WW (not adjusted for inflation). That's pretty good considering it was always a DOM-leaning film.

    THE GRINCH

    THE GRINCH Illumination Entertainment Universal/Illumination’s domestic holiday hit has now topped $200M overseas ($203.9M) while global is at $469.4Mthrough Sunday. The weekend was worth $17.5M in 61 offshore markets with a great hold of -27%. A number of hubs were up versus the pre-Christmas session as the animated Dr Seuss update has surpassed the lifetimes of both Rise Of The Guardiansand Trolls. Hong Kong was new to the green meanie at $486K to best the starts of Big Hero 6and Trolls. The top holdover market was France with a 28% increase in the 5th weekend, to cume $14.2M and exceed the lifetime of BH6. The UK leads all play at $33.8M to date. Other notable cumes include Germany’s $17.2M, Mexico’s $16M and Australia’s $12.5M.

    Wednesday numbers

    I think counting the previews vs OD multiple of something like Marwen or Second Act (as adult films)., their OD multi vs previews was 4.7. This means Vice probably did 900K-1m in previews if the multi is the same. Which means its actual OD was like 3.8. So 2.9m second day from a 3.8 actual opening is like -25 or -26%...

    Wednesday numbers

    Isn't the drop for Vice due to Mon previews rolled in the Christmas Day number? If it did like 600K previous, OD is then 4.17m, and with 2.9m today the drop is like -30%. If previews were higher, then the actual drop is lower. I think the fact that they rolled in the previews made the drop bigger today, right? That could also be the case for On the basis of sex, but not Holmes which had no previews. What do you think? Also @Pinacolada this is to your point.

    THE GRINCH

    Thanks Omni. DHD: THE GRINCH Illumination Entertainment You’re a green machine Mr Grinch. Universal/Illumination’s animated take on the Dr Seuss classic Christmas tale crossed $400M worldwide this weekend, now tallying $422.5M. Of that, $169.3M is in the overseas stocking. This weekend added three offshore markets for 62 in play which stuffed $23.7M into the chimney. New hubs include Russia with $4.2M from 1,662 locations, followed by Korea at $1.36M from 429 and Ukraine at $461K from 178. Seuss’ work is best known in English-speaking markets, as well as Germany. The latter was up 2% this weekend and stuck the No. 2 slot to outperform newcomers Mary Poppins Returns and Bumblebee. The cume there is $13.6M. The UK likewise was up, by a percentage point, to cume $31.1M. Also jumping were the Netherlands, Belgium and New Zealand. Mexico ($13.9M cume/-35%/close to Moana lifetime), Australia ($11.4M/-7%) and France ($11.2M/-13%) are the other Top 5 plays. The Grinch steals into Hong Kong on December 27.

    @Omni Predictions for WW and OS given this weekend's performance?
  14. MinaTakla

    THE GRINCH

    Its actuals are probably come at a -35% drop OS from last week. Last week actuals were $2 million higher than estimates. Universal tends to underestimate OS usually.
