  1. 71,671 admissions (-33%). February break starts for one area on February 6, the movie can definitely get through the period as there won't be much competition on purely animated features (Mission Kathmandu, Racetime, Bayala, Samsam are all small-sized animated flms) but some family-friendly movies will be there to compete (Dolittle, Ducobu 3, Sonic, Le Prince Oublié).

The movie also has excellent WOM (4.5 out of 5 on Allociné, 7.9 out of 10 on SensCritique) and thanks to its 10 Oscars noms, 2M definitely seem feasible for the latest war movie by Sam Mendes. The other new releases do not shine as much. The two french comedies of this week, Une belle équipe and Selfie, only managed to attract around 300 moviegoers per theater. They will not go far at the box-office and will lose a bunch of screens when the February school break will start. The remake of The Grudge performed a bit better on average, with a more limited release on less than 200 screens. War of attrition Star Wars IX finally lost its top spot and gets down to second place, it looks like its final stop will be 6M. Little Women holds wonderfully well, helped by good WOM (4.0 Allociné, 7.0 SensCritique) and its 4 Oscars noms. 1M could be feasible in the long run! Jumanji: TNL, in 5th place, also holds up very well by attracting the families in off-school days. It has now crossed 3M and is on track to finish at the same level as Welcome to the Jungle. The animated feature Spies in Disguise will also manage to get above 1M, and will be the final movie released in 2019 to do so. There are 51 movies to do above 1M admissions in 2019. At the bottom of the top 10, Les Vétos has a decent drop and will cross 500k today while Underwater loses traction and sinks into the boxoffice. News from the backline Beyond the top 10, some interesting things happen: - Les Misérables, helped by its Oscar nomination for best international film and the Télérama film festival, has a +17% increase in admissions and will cross 2M admissions in the following days. - Frozen II is now at 7.25M admissions and cements itself as the #2 of 2019. - Knives Out has passed the 1M mark. - Parasite benefitted from a wide re-release in theaters both from the Télérama festival and its 6 Oscars noms, having brought more than 40k additional admissions since its initial theatrical run. Its total is now at 1.75M admissions! Parasite might stay in theaters in a limited release until the Oscars in early February. - A similar phenomenon happened to Portrait of a Lady on Fire and For Sama.
  3. OD January 15 releases Finally a movie with a good opening! 1917 leads the charge with more than 90k admissions on its OD, with a third of them being in preview screenings. It's still lower than Dunkirk, and on par with See You Up There (Au revoir là-haut). But 1M is pretty much guaranteed for the movie, which will be the first one to cross in 2020. Queens of the Field (Une belle équipe) is second but does a very lackluster score, trailed by the remake of The Grudge which has a much better average per theater. Selfie also does a low score despite a semi-wide release. Below, various movies with limited releases stay discreet. System K has a typo, it's only on 31 sites, and not 337.

Many movies lose more than 60% of their admission levels compared to the last week, mostly family-friendly movies. As such, for the fourth week in a row, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker keeps the lead due to a crippling lack of decent competition. It has now reached 5.5M admissions, and will barely go over 6M by the end of January before ending its career. In second place, another Disney movie, this time inherited from Fox: Underwater. The deep-down thriller from the abyss gets the best average per print, and grabs nearly 150k admissions despite being screened in just over 200 cinemas. A final score around 500k is very likely. The podium is completed by Jumanji: The Next Level which comes close of the 3M mark and will end its career at the same level as Welcome to the Jungle. Note that Jumanji: The Next Level is part of the highest-grossing movies in France that never reached a weekly #1 spot, being beaten every week either by Frozen II or Star Wars. It's its sixth consecutive week on the podium, though. Below, Little Women has the lowest drop rate of the top, helped with good critics - let's hope that its 6 Academy Award nominations will help it go further, closer to the 1M mark - but it will be very hard. Les Vétos, a french drama, is going to be around 600k at the end of its career. Frozen II will be close to 7.5M. Spies in Disguise should manage to get to 1M. Next up, Weathering with You is the first japanese movie since Dragon Ball Super: Broly to get into the top 10 with the second best average of the top, and does a higher score than Your Name three years ago. At the bottom of the top 10, Sol is a failure with barely 200 admissions per print and will likely not reach 200k admissions. Malawas will also fail to reach its objective of 1M admissions by a long run. 650k seems more likely.
  5. OD January 8 releases There's no big release this week, with only one above 300 cinemas and two around 200 - as the Christmas holidays have ended. Underwater is the strongest of them all, with a decent average of 87 moviegoers per theater and without any preview screening. Weathering With You, the japanese smash-hit from Makoto Shinkai, takes the second place with a score a bit stronger than Your Name three years ago but with more previews and with twice as more cinemas. Sol, a french comedy, takes third place with a disappointing average knowing it's the widest release this week. Then come two "cinema prize contenders", The Farewell and The Whistlers. The former gets a better average than the latter, with less previews. Below, we only have bombs that won't stay long in their small amount of cinemas. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker should keep the lead for the 4th consecutive week, it should be dethroned by 1917 which releases next week. Only Underwater should manage to get into the top 10 this week.

Even though that opening is massive, that's a 30% drop compared to The Force Awakens, and a 14% drop compared to The Last Jedi. It does confirm the loss of interest over the years for Disney's Star Wars. The final score should be lower than 7M, basically on par with Avengers: Endgame. Vic the Viking, with a daring move to open alongside Star Wars in a crowded market for children, manages to get 6th place. With the school break, it will do better over days, but I don't expect it to go above 600k with that OW. Notre Dame, a french comedy about the famous cathedral, also gets into the top 10, but its market is already taken by Docteur and Le meilleur reste à venir. Most already released movies hold very well and their week-to-week numbers can only increase from now as the Christmas school break has started, and will last until January 6. Frozen II is now above the first one and is still on trail for 7M+, while Jumanji: The Next Level will definitely have trouble to equal the score done by Welcome to the Jungle, while still going well above 2M.
  7. The 215k PS number is for the entire week, not just for OD.
  8. Yeah, that score is definitely underwhelming, I really thought expectations would come back as the marketing campaign greatly pushed the movie these last weeks and the market seemed to wait for the release of SW9. It's only the 4th biggest OD of the year behind Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King and Spider-Man: Far From Home (the last one having benefitted from a nationwide operation called the Fête du cinéma where every ticket is sold at €4 without extras). This is the lowest OD for a main SW movie ever. I'm excluding the original trilogy as releases weren't as wide in the 70s-80s as they are today.
  9. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker OD: 392 783 admissions on 731 cinemas. In comparison: The Phantom Menace: 450 531 admissions on 793 cinemas Attack of the Clones: 453 203 admissions on 836 cinemas Revenge of the Sith: 641 799 admissions on 938 cinemas The Force Awakens: 619 020 admissions on 1 093 cinemas Rogue One: 271 902 admissions on 910 cinemas The Last Jedi: 503 727 admissions on 1 027 cinemas Solo: 89 338 admissions on 844 cinemas A 37% drop compared to TFA, and a 22% drop compared to TLJ. The number of cinemas is lower (but the difference is made on smaller cinemas with less screenings per day), and there was a strike that prevented some people in the Paris region to go to cinemas normally. There was though a feeling that this episode had less expectations around it.
  10. OD = 600k OW = 2.2M OWeek = 3M (monday and tuesday being in school vacation period) Total = 7.5M (a bit above TLJ but way below TFA) Note that 215k tickets for this week have been sold in presales only at Pathé Gaumont. On par with Avengers: Endgame. In comparison: Avengers Endgame: 216k The Lion King: 104k Frozen 2: 78k Spider-Man FFH: 55k Captain Marvel: 45k Joker: 25k

Pretty much every released movie has around a 30% drop. As such, Jumanji TNL, Joyeuse Retraite and Le Mans '66 (now outside the top 10) all crossed the famed 1M admissions mark. The Addams Family will reach it thanks to the Christmas vacation, while Knives Out has very decent holds and could create a surprise. It will be harder for Le meilleur reste à venir. The only new releases to crack the top 10 are, first, Docteur?, a french comedy topping the 4th spot. It's a rather low opening but we've seen much worse by bigger releases, and the holidays are just around the corner so it could do 600-700k. Latte & The Magic Waterstone, a small-budget animated feature, gets the top 10 spot thanks to its large amount of previews compared to its score (17k in previews for 67k total). Other movies released last wednesday are failing, Black Christmas and A Hidden Life from Terrence Malick don't get much more than 50k admissions over 5 days. It's clear that the french market is waiting on Star Wars and the Christmas holiday period to pack the cinemas.

FERRARI) FOX/DISNEY 75 513 (-48%) 481 165 936 770 4 Despite a much stronger start than the 2017 sequelboot, Jumanji: The Next Level is not able to topple Frozen II from the top spot. The latest Disney classic keeps a lead of over 150k admissions. The Addams Family completes the podium with an average start, and will reach 1M admissions easily thanks to the Christmas holidays. Note that the first three movies benefitted from a stronger Thursday than usual due to massive strikes in schools, and many children didn't have any classes that day. Le meilleur reste à venir however is the disappointment of the week, starting only at #4 with less than 250k admissions in over 600 cinemas in its first 5 days. It could miss the million if it doesn't hold good over the weeks. Motherless Brooklyn starts at #9 in a much smaller release, but gets the 4th best average per cinema of the top 10.
  13. Jumanji: The Next Level takes the lead, with a similar OD as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (but with less previews). The animated version of The Addams Family also gets a good score but it has 50% of previews in its OD. The french dramedy Le meilleur reste à venir does a lackluster score despite being screened in 600+ cinemas. Motherless Brooklyn has a slow start.
  14. Frozen II in my opinion will reach 7M minimum and be #2 of the year, probably #3 depending on the success of Star Wars. As the Christmas school break will start on December 20, and will run up to January 6, the movie should have great holds over the weeks.

Its total is now reaching 3.5M and the Christmas break didn't even start. The latest Disney animated feature is all-powerful on wednesdays, saturdays and sundays when children have next to no school. The top 3 stays the same, with Les Misérables keeping a great pace and Joyeuse Retraite which will both join the millionaire club. The first newcomer is at #4: Knives Out. The latest "whodunit" film by Rian Johnson attracted some audience, even though the success is far from a Murder on the Orient Express. However, it has very good critics (4.1/5 viewer rating on Allociné, 7.3/10 on SensCritique) and it can limit its drops over the weeks. Three other new releases are in the top 10: the american romcom Last Christmas, and two french dramas, Gloria Mundi and Chanson Douce, with scores around 100k admissions. Last Christmas can definitely benefit from the Christmas break as long as it can keep its 300 theaters. Note that a french comedy with famous actors, Toute ressemblance, failed to get into the top 10, with 69 625 admissions (351 prints). Another movie that'll join the long list of 2019 french comedy bombs.
