  1. Excellent start on sales for It: Chapter II. First day way above Anabelle: Creation, The Curse of Llorona, Detective Pikachu, and John Wick 3 and decently over Hobbs & Shaw all which also held Thursday night previews. Could become second title to open $10M+ in Thursday night previews.
  2. AUGUST 16TH-18TH WEEKEND. DEL TORO TRIUMPHS AGAIN WITH SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK. PETS 2 STILL TRAILING BEHIND GRINCH AND HOBBS & SHAW DO MEH. Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark - Guillermo del Toro’s power once again showed up. 5.18% behind The Shape of Water and nearly double of Crimson Peak. Also more than double of recent titles such as Child’s Play and Crawl. - Lacks of wide competition until It: Chapter 2 so a final figure between $130M-$150M seems the target. The Secret Life of Pets 2 - Now is running only 4.9% under Dr Seuss’ The Grinch at the same point of release which puts it in a very close to exceed $300M with a significant difference. But unfortunately this is the last week of holidays and should take a big hit after that so may be just an o/u $300M result. Hobbs & Shaw - Now we have a clearer picture of it and it seems to be indeed falling 50% from Fate of the Furious and finish between $325M-$330M. The Lion King - Despite holidays its weekday holds haven’t been as good and now it’s finishing just a shy behind $1B. It was running above Dumbo and both enjoyed of holidays during its run but the elephant had better weekday holds. # MOVIE WEEKEND % CHANGE TOTAL (MXN) TOTAL (USD) ADM.

  3. Tickets for It: Chapter II are going on sale later today. First It was a presale monster selling even better than any title of summer 2017. Surprisingly, this time is holding Thursday night previews on Sep 5th starting 9:00 PM instead of midnights. The second installment of the franchise is looking at a superb opening between $205M-$215M which puts it as the highest opening ever for a horror title and a B-15 rated movie surpassing last fall's The Nun. It also would challenge Batman v Superman as Warner's biggest opening ever and the fifth best opening of the year beating Sony's Spider-Man: Far From Home.
  4. Usually these movies don't have a proper distributor. They're released through deals of chains with the original distributor and that's why this type of alternative content (concerts, sports broadcast, etc) isn't reported by the agencies (i.e FilmeB, Adoro Cinema) even if ComScore do report figures.
  5. AUGUST 9TH-11TH WEEKEND. SECRET LIFE OF PETS 2 OPENS BELOW PREDECESSOR. HOBBS AND SHAW DO MEH AND CRAWL SURPRISES. The Secret Life of Pets 2 - 32.4% below first Pets, 12.15% under Dr Seuss’ The Grinch and 33.2% above Sing. With holidays still going on should come close to $300M which represents a 30% decline over first installment of the franchise. Hobbs & Shaw - Already surpassed Fallout’s lifetime gross but is running 1.24% below The Meg at the same point of release and gap is going to increase over the next week. Final range is decreasing to $330M-$350M which would be a drop of nearly 50% from Fate of the Furious. The Lion King - $1B is going to be a photo-finish. Drops have been a bit worse than expected. In admissions is pointing to finish in between 18.3M-18.6M. Crawl - Above this year’s The Quake and last year’s Hurricane Heist. Also above horror titles from this year like Child’s Play and double of Us. # MOVIE WEEKEND % CHANGE TOTAL (MXN) TOTAL (USD) ADM.

  6. Screendaily reports 59% drop for Hobbs and Shaw. Total gross just over $250M. It isn't good at all. They also report $1.4M for Crawl which translates into a solid overperformance of $27M lc. This puts a better scenario for both Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. August should be good for these small overperformers and slepper hits.
  7. Unless Jumanji 2 or something totally unexpected pulls an upset 8 out of the 10 highest grossing titles of the year are going to be produced by Disney, 9 of them produced or co-produced. I'm currently expecting: 1/ Avengers: Endgame 2/ Toy Story 4 3/ The Lion King 4/ Captain Marvel 5/ Aladdin 6/ Spider-Man: Far From Home 7/ It: Chapter II 8/ Maleficent 2 9/ Frozen 2 10/ Dumbo
  8. Not spectacular but solid. Running in the middle of Fallout and Meg; seems to end in between $360M and $380M. Billion mark still looking good but it's going to be just over it. $1B-$1.02B Although in good news now all Top 5: lc, USD and admissions are entirely Disney. TLK passed Minions as No. 5 in admissions yesterday. SLOP2 aims $90M-$100M and Crawl sees high 10s-low 20s
  9. Hopefully this benefits Crawl and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Ready to follow the trend and change the thread's title to: "Fall of records" through September and October?
  10. AUGUST 2ND-4TH WEEKEND. HOBBS & SHAW SEE THE SECOND BEST RESULT FOR AN AUGUST OPENING. THE LION KING TOPS AVENGERS IN LC. SPIDEY PASSES $600M AND IS ABOUT TO BEAT ARTHUR CURRY. TOY STORY 4: FIRST MOVIE EVER TO CROSS 25M ADMISSIONS. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw - Below all three previous installments of the franchise but nearly 50% above Fast Five. 46.5% above last year’s Fallout and 4.5% over The Meg. - Second best August opener only below 2016’s Suicide Squad and over last year’s The Meg. - It shall go over $350M seeking for a place in the Top 10 of the year. Fourth best result for the Fast and Furious franchise. The Lion King - Now the 5th highest grossing title ever surpassing Marvel’s Avengers. It should stay that way and finish No. 5 in both lc and admissions ($1B-$1.05B lc/19M adm) Spider-Man: Far From Home - Surpasses Iron Man 3 as 7th biggest MCU title below four Avengers, Civil War and Captain Marvel. Soon is going to pass Aquaman as second biggest solo SH title only under Carol Danvers. Toy Story 4 - First film ever to sell over 25M admissions in modern history. # MOVIE WEEKEND % CHANGE TOTAL (MXN) TOTAL (USD) ADM.

  11. This is like reverse Meg; it completely deflated after Opening Day. Not sure about it making it into Top 10 of the year. Still looking at $1B+ but ceiling is getting lower and lower.
  12. Yes. It's running above both I2 and Dumbo at the same point of release. I don't know about ceiling tho, it competes with H&S this weekend and SLOP2 next weekend. I wouldn't be concerned with SLOP2 after seeing how's been performing everywhere but Mexico has already performed opposite for Dumbo and Grinch so Pets could go anywhere.
  13. $42M until yesterday. Looking at $55M+ total. Yes. Admissions goes for TS4 but lc and USD stay with EG.
