  1. NOVEMBER 09-11 WEEKEND. BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY PASSES THE GREATEST SHOWMAN AND HEADS TOWARDS $300M LC. OPENERS DON’T SURPRISE AND VENOM ABOUT TO GO AS ONE OF 35 HIGHEST GROSSERS EVER. Bohemian Rhapsody -Already surpassed lifetime gross of last winter’s hit The Greatest Showman. - If we consider this as a ‘musical’ then is already second biggest musical of all-time only behind Beauty and the Beast. Among biopics it is already #1. TO PUT SOME PERSPECTIVE ON THIS WEEKEND FLOPS… The Girl in the Spider’s Web -33.36% behind The Girl on the Train and on par with Gone Girl. First Man -Above 1/3 of Interstellar’s opening and less than half of Blade Runner 2049’s first frame. Leave alone bigger comps as Gravity or The Martian. # MOVIE WEEKEND % CHANGE TOTAL (MXN) TOTAL (USD) ADM.

  2. Sounds about right. I think the HP franchise is developing a similar problem like the SW franchise and is that no one except the fanbase gets hyped about a new film. And Warner's marketing really hasn't helped. The only way i could see a HP movie making big numbers -let's say $400M+- is if they make a sequel from the original series, if not then this franchise is going to the same status as the Star Wars saga.
  3. Well, first trailer had social media activity only compared to a Marvel title, Fox was aggressive with marketing and presales were out of this world compared to any biopic and musical. It was a perfect combination of factors. Loca por el Trabajo can have a good opening but can't see it with legs, recently all local titles with good/excellent openings are more front-loaded than usual. Never expected anything extraordinary foe neither First Man or Girl in Spider's Web, none of them seemed attractive for the market. Saw First Man yesterday, didn't felt it long but it was ok at best, didn't loved it.
  4. NOVEMBER 02-04 WEEKEND. BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY ROCKS THE BOX OFFICE AND OUTGROSSES COMPS. NUTCRACKER DEBUTS AHEAD OF CHRISTOPHER ROBIN AND WRINKLE IN TIME AND VENOM REACHES $450M LC. Bohemian Rhapsody - Already outgrossed final numbers of titles such as A Star Is Born, La La Land, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again and Straight Outta Compton. - Next week should beat final gross of The Greatest Showman. Also, we’ll give an idea if this can leg towards $300M, but we should seriously consider the possibility. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms -174% ahead of A Wrinke in Time and 91% ahead of Christopher Robin. Should pass $100M if it doesn’t collapse, it doesn’t face competition until Ralph Breaks the Internet. Halloween -Has a chance to surpass The Conjuring as 6th highest horror film of all-time, also it could pass Anabelle as 5th. # MOVIE WEEKEND % CHANGE TOTAL (MXN) TOTAL (USD) ADM.

  5. Told ya' since beginning of the year that this was going to break-out. Mexico lovesssss Queen. Actually Friday night i expected $85M+ but yesterday and today started to take screens from other movies including Nutcracker (lol).
  6. It's very likely that Warner moves Aquaman to the 14th, if they decide to go with it then Mortal Engines is beyond dead. Mary Poppins could be a surprise hit but the original isn't really popular or known so could go either way, however i do believe Disney is going to put a lot of effort to it so it could become a success. People who saw Perfectos Desconocidos at Morelia Film Fest say it'll play good with audiences, we'll see if Manolo Caro can replicate its success from TV (or well, Netflix) to movies. About Bohemian Rhapsody, buzz through social media is big and marketing is everywhere, giving a look at presales i could argue that even $60M-$70M are on the cards but don't know how front-loaded is going to be from opening day and number of screens might limit it.
  7. Disney has decided not to extend the run for Coco re-release, so at the end won't top IW but at least it'll cross 24M admissions. Bohemian Rhapsody and Nutcracker are both opening at 1,800+ screens, the former is getting IMAX and PLF screens and the later has received 4D screens. Bohemian Rhapsody opening will be over or under Mamma Mia 2 lifetime gross ($50M)? Nutcracker will be another Solo/Christopher Robin and fall short of $100M?
  8. OCTOBER 26-28 WEEKEND. HALLOWEEN REPEATS ON TOP AS IT BECOMES BLUMHOUSE’S HIGHEST GROSSER; HOUSE WITH A CLOCK HAS A MEH OPENING AND COCO RETURNS FOR A WEEK. Halloween -Already topped titles such as Split and A Quiet Place. Is going to cross $200M by Thursday and should finish with $220M+ The House With a Clock in its Walls -A little behind Goosebumps 2 which came out three weeks ago, with a crowded market probably won’t pass further $60M-$70M Coco -It keeps playing until Thursday, but Disney has decided to down ticket prices for all shows of the week, it needs about $27M to take back the all-time crown. # MOVIE WEEKEND % CHANGE TOTAL (MXN) TOTAL (USD) ADM.

  9. A Star Is Born has legged towards $60M, a quite good 3x multi and is looking to finish with $70M. It has passed Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again but is finishing behind La La Land. This friday opens Bohemian Rhapsody (known in the country as The Story of Freddie Mercury) and should top easily the three films already mentioned, but by how much? Could it reach Greatest Showman's heights?
  10. Día de Muertos. If gets the expansion then nov 1 and 2 are helping it to pass IW, last year the movie exploded on both days.
  11. Halloween is comfortably repeating on top for the weekend after passing $150M today. Coco and House with a Clock in its Walls are fighting over families to win no. 2 for the frame with $14M-$18M each one. Coco's total gross would be between $1,015-$1,020 by the end of the weekend, it would need an extension for another weekend to take back the all-time title from Infinity War.
  12. December is going to be such a monster month, is very very crowded, just confirmed dates for the most important movies: Dec 7 - Grinch Dec 14 - Mortal Engines Dec 19 - Bumblebee Dec 21 - Aquaman. Although Warner doesn't know what to do with this one while ironically is the one with most potential for the season along with Grinch. Dec 25 - Mary Poppins Returns and Into the Spiderverse. Jan 1 - Bad Times at El Royale And that's not including local titles with some mojo. Last year The Last Jedi was buried by Jumanji and The Greatest Showman, this year which could be the buried ones and the successful ones?
  13. Way more for Bohemian Rhapsody Spot on for FB2 Less for WiR2 This weekend Halloween should repeat on top and #2 is going to be a race between House of Clocks in its Walls, Coco and Museo. Coco is going over 1,500 screens, seems Pixar wants that record back.
