  1. Some actuals from January 9-12th. Some actuals from January 16-19th.

Jumanji is holding just okay, now running 29% behind the 2017 one. But is facing a lot of competition. Dolittle is honestly fine given how unknow it is and poor reviews. 1917 rode the Oscar buzz to a flat performance, could top 1m USD. Frozen 2 dragged itself over 4m USD which is very good considering the circumstances, should stop short of 4,5m USD. Skywalker can't catch a break, but at least it passed Revenge of the Sith on USD... (In admissions is going to lose badly) To put things in perspective, Chile BO is 2,75x times bigger than in 2005 admission-wise, and let's not start talking about inflation.
  2. 2016 2016 was a year dominated by animation, even by Chilean standards, with a whopping 41,7% of market share. Ice Age 5 topped the year with a decrease from the previous entry but facing heavy competition from 2 animated juggernauts: Finding Dory and the Secret Life of Pets. The cut for the top 10 was Batman vs Superman with 902k, still the highest cut-off to this date. Total Admissions: 27.659.999 (+6,2%) Number of Screens: 378 Top Movie: Ice Age Collision Course (1.522.936) Over 1m: 6; Ice Age 5, Finding Dory (1,5m), Secret Life of Pets (1,3m), Sin Filtro (1,2m), Captain America: Civil War (1,2m), The Conjuring (1,1m) Also notable: Sin Filtro is the last local movie that managed to be a legit hit. 2017 2017 managed to squeak a very tiny increase but for the first time in a decade, the BO was "stagnant" despite screens growing by almost 10%. Fittingly enough, this year also saw another phenomenon not seen in decades, not since Titanic actually: Coco. With an astonishing 21x multiplier in admissions, Coco actually grossed more in 2018 than in 2017. It was still at the top of the Box Office on its eleventh weekend and finally claimed the all-time crown in March, almost four months after its release. It stayed more than 6 months in multiplexes, longer than any other movie on record. One can just dream what would have happened if it swapped release dates with Cars 3... Total Admissions: 27.744.674 (+0,2%) Number of Screens: 410 Top Movie: Coco (2.234.951) Over 1m: 6; Coco, Despicable Me 3 (1,6m), It (1,2m), Fast and Furious 8 (1,2m), Moana (1,1m), The Boss Baby (1m) Also notable: The Boss Baby also had impressive legs, coming out of nowhere to the million mark. The failure of Cars 3 at winter's holidays is amazing, just 690k admissions for a well-known franchise and the Pixar brand with one of the lowest multipliers ever for animation. 2018 Overall stagnation continued over 2018, which would have in fact decreased if Coco hadn't contributed with over a million admission during the calendar year. Despite this, this year saw another movie claim the all-time #1: Infinity War reaped the steady growth of the MCU over the course of the decade, breaking every OD and OW record on sight. Total Admissions: 28.067.303 (+1,2%) Number of Screens: 472 Top Movie: Avengers Infinity War (2.334.956) Over 1m: 7; Infinity War, Incredibles 2 (1,8m), Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom (1,4m), Hotel Transylvania 3 (1,3m), Deadpool (1m), Bohemian Rhapsody (1m), The Nun (1m) Also notable: Bohemian Rhapsody was a huge succes, while Ferdinand at 9th (was 38th! domestically in 2017) is nothing short of impressive considering it had to deal with Coco of all things. 2019 The decade ends with a Book End, the same as it started: Toy Story at the top, this time claiming the all-time crown. 2019 was wild in every sense of the world. First Endgame broke all OW records again with numbers that pushed the market capacity at its limit, only to be defeated by the Winter's Holidays-powered, beloved Pixar film, with both movies breaking the 3 million admission milestone for the first time ever. The Lion King success also means that the all-time top 3 is entirely made of 2019 movies. This year ended the stagnation and was on track to a 10% growth until the social unrest that started in October closed cinemas for 13 days and depressed the BO for another 2 months. Things have calmed somewhat, but the future remains very uncertain. Total Admissions: 29.500.000 (+5,1%) (provisional) Number of Screens: ?? Top Movie: Toy Story 4 (3.190.000) Over 1m: 7; Toy Story 4, Avengers Endgame (3m), The Lion King (2,4m), Joker (1,5m), Captain Marvel (1,3m), Spiderman Far From Home (1m), How to Train Your Dragon 3 (1m) Also notable: Dragon Ball Super Broly (11th) broke the animated OW record in summer to the shock of everyone, becoming the most viewed non-US foreign movie of all time. The Joker also broke the all-time record for a +14 movie and would have touched 2m admission without the unrest.
  3. 2013 A Pixar sequel released near Winter's Holiday? That's a sure way for success (Unless you are Cars 3 but we'll get to that later). Monsters University easily won a year which saw no less than five movies packed in the 800-900k range. Growth slowed down a lot but the previous rate was simply unsustainable. Total Admissions: 21.200.044 (+5,4%) Number of Screens: 330 Top Movie: Monsters University (1.353.792) Over 1m: 2; Monsters University (1,3m), Iron Man 3 (1,1m) Also notable: Life of Pi was 9th (barely 27th in the US in 2012) showing that Chilean BO is more than just family fare. The Conjuring also was a breakout succes at 4th with 916k and a huge multiplier. 2014 2014 was a pretty even year with no huge smash hit that nevertheless saw many success stories. While the original How To Train Your Dragon was, almost literally, crushed under the earthquake, its sequel was blessed with Winter's Holiday, multiplicating by 5 the number of admissions of its predecessor. Its lone companion in the million club was Transformer 4, which after the diminishing returns of the previous entries, ironically benefited from small kids seeing it on the holidays. Total Admissions: 22.015.883 (+3,8%) Number of Screens: 341 Top Movie: How to Train your Dragon 2 (1.046.434) Over 1m: 2; HTTYD2, Transformers 4: Age of Extinction (1m) Also notable: Global smash hit Frozen was just 5th here in Chile (released in summer 2014), under Big Hero 6 and Rio 2. Also, the last year with no MCU film in the top 10. 2015 You get a million! And you get a million! And you get a million! A record-breaking number of films passed the million milestone in another year of explosive growth. Minions won the year and the all-time crown with 2,076m admissions thanks to Winter Holidays. That might seem appalling to many but if it's any solace, Inside Out was second. Total Admissions: 26.036.426 (+18,3%) Number of Screens: 365 Top Movie: Minions (2.076.255) Over 1m: 7; Minions, Inside Out (1,5m), Fast and Furious 7 (1,5m), Star Wars TFA (1,3m), Avengers Age of Ultron (1,2m), The 33 (1m), Jurassic World (1m) Also notable: Star Wars was only 4th but it was a very good result and beat Ultron. Chilean idiosyncrasy catapulted The 33 (6th, based on the Chilean miners' rescue) and earthquake-movie San Andreas (8th) to very high results.
  4. It is referring only to ER, not total USD gross but is still very bad. Even in admissions /lc Argentina has been stagnant for years and even Brasil has seen some yearly declines (though not this year)
  5. Decade Recap. This has been a decade of spectacular growth and many surprises at the BO. I'm going to do a little recap giving commentary on each year. 2010 The decade started with a huge earthquake in Central Chile that paralyzed the industry for weeks. This year, in fact, together with 2011, are the only ones of the decade that saw a fall in the number of screens. This contingency negatively affected the top movie of the year, Toy Story 3, which would have likely claimed the all-time crown from Avatar otherwise. Total Admissions: 14.714.031 (+1,9%) Number of Screens: 284 Top Movie: Toy Story 3 (1,408.862 admissions) Over 1m: Toy Story 3, Shrek Forever After (1 million) Also notable: Just 3 animated movies in the top 10, fewer than domestic. 2011 2011 saw another tiny fall in the number of screens but achieved very strong growth in admissions. Tickets sold were bigger than the country's population for the first time in decades, probably helped by the student revolt that canceled classes for months. Despite this, no movie cracked the 1m admission mark, the last time this has happened. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 won the year with 931k. While the Potter movies had always ranked high in yearly top 10, they hadn't won a year since 2001 with the original HP. A very fitting ending for the saga in the country. 1.408.862 Total Admissions: 17.320.697 (+17,7%) Number of Screens: 283 Top Movie: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallow Part 2 (931.634) Over 1m: None Also notable: No less than 5 animated movies in the top 10. Rio being particularly notable at 2 with over 900k admission (was just 18th domestic) 2012 2012 was a very notable year, in the sense that it saw many milestones being crushed. It saw 2 movies claiming the all time crown, and if last year saw no movie over 1m admission, this year saw 2 over 2 million admissions. First, Ice Age 4 rode the long-time goodwill of Chilean audiences with the saga and powered by Winter Holidays it crushed Avatar record by 25% and it became the first movie to pass 2m admission. This triumph would prove to be short-lived, as the local comedy Stefan vs Kramer (about a famous comedian) managed to beat it by 26k. The first time in ages since a Chilean movie won the year, and so far the last time it has happened. Total Admissions: 20.122.604 (+16,2%) Number of Screens: 313 Top Movie: Stefan vs Kramer (2.056.451) Over 1m: 3; Stefan Vs Kramer (2m), Ice Age 4 (2m), Avengers (1,3m) Also notable: Avengers was third, and it marked the beginning of the MCU playing in the big leagues here. It would only grow from here.
  6.

Spies in Disguise failed to make an impact but summer should give it good legs for a not disastrous total.
  7. Weekend December 26-29th Rank LW Release Gross %± LW Theaters Change Average Total Gross Weeks Distributor 1 1 Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker $707,682 -48.4% - - - $2,403,842 2 Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures 2 - Jumanji: The Next Level $612,738 - 180 - $3,404 $612,738 1 Sony Pictures Releasing 3 2 Frozen II $329,249 +6.2% - - - $3,103,202 5 Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures 4 3 Maleficent: Mistress of Evil $11,842 -36.5% - - - $1,576,373 11 Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures 5 4 Downton Abbey $10,042 -24.5% 6 -4 $1,673 $69,462 3 N/A SW had a slightly better drop than TLJ (-53%) but is significantly behind in total gross because of its weekdays being deflated by Christmas. Frozen recovered after a bad drop last week. The Good Dinosaur also increased this equivalent weekend. It needs to weather Spies in Disguise, if it manages that then 4m USD is in play. Jumanji TNL is very good, almost the same as the first one despite much worse ER.
  8. I will try to revive this thread, no promises though. For now, let's take a look at what the press reported about 2019. Admissions reached 29,5 million in Multiplexes, a growth of 6% versus 2018 and the first major increase since 2016 (The last two years saw very anemic growth). This was achieved despite the social uprising that devastated the industry over October-November, with 13 days of almost total closure of all cinemas and very weak numbers since then until recently. Without the protests, the Chilean BO would have likely seen an increase of over 10%. Top movies were these: Chile yearly top 10 Toy Story 4: 3.190.000 (#1 all time) Avengers: Endgame: 3.096.000 (#2 all time) The Lion King: 2.435.000 (#3 all time) Joker 1.571.000 (Record for +14 movie) Captain Marvel: 1.369.000 Spider-man: Far From Home: 1.092.000 How to Train Your Dragon 3: 1.050.000 It 2: 864.000 Frozen 2: 824.000 (still on release) Aladdin: 812.000 2020 will have a hard time keeping the impressive streak of 13 years of increases in admissions. 2006 was the last time the Chilean BO saw a year-to-year decline. Not only the lineup of movies is weaker, but next year there are a lot of elections and cinemas have to close on election day (which is always Sunday, the second strongest day of the week). But considering that 2019 lost 13 days, 2020 has nothing to complain about losing 3 Sundays. My biggest fear is that one should never, never, underestimate the infinite incompetence of this government and the authoritarian tendencies of the Chilean right. Protests are likely to reignite in March and if the government responds as well as last time then there's nothing that can save cinemas next year.
  9. Joker would probably be around 2 million without the social uprising. Chile is a very leggy market and many avoid seeing a movie in the first week because of restrictions on discounts. It's true that it wouldn't have beat TLK though. Frozen 2 was still affected but less so. Is going to end near Spider Man/ HTTYD3 when it had the potential to do CM numbers.
  10. Chile yearly top 10 Toy Story 4: 3.190.000 (#1 all time) Avengers: Endgame: 3.096.000 (#2 all time) The Lion King: 2.435.000 (#3 all time) Joker 1.571.000 Captain Marvel: 1.369.000 Spider-man: Far From Home: 1.092.000 How to Train Your Dragon 3: 1.050.000 It 2: 864.000 Frozen 2: 824.000 (still on release) Aladdin: 812.000 Dragon Ball Super: Broly was so close. It was #11 with 807k admissions, missed by only 5k.
  11. Honestly is not a brand thing. Is just that Pixar movies are the ones that usually gets a Winter Holiday releases. If it wants to be a top tier release in LA it either needs to: 1) Be Coco 2) Have a June/July release date
  12. It would have done it without the revolution in Chile, same for Star Wars / sarcasm. Well, Star Wars should be unironically doing like 20m USD in Chile if it followed market growth but the franchise is stuck doing prequel numbers in admissions. That's a big problem for the franchise going forward.
  13. Chile =\ China jaja There are no hard numbers but Chilean OD seems good. Theather chain recommended arriving 45 minutes before the showing due to "high demand". Again, people are probably just rushing to see before Christmas (absolutely nobody goes to cinemas in Christmas here )
  14. Chilean pre-sales looks meh to bad but I wouldn't take them as indication of anything given the context (revolution and what not). That's why I didn't bother tracking them.
  15. Well, not everything was bad for Frozen 2 in Chile. The press reported 192k admissions on OW. This is 28% higher than Frozen 1 and the best OW for a Disney Animation film. This, of course, languish compared to TS4 (558k) or Incredibles 2 (271k) but is very good given the circunstances. The reason it didn't increase in local currency is because Disney (smartly in my opinion) didn't put restrictions to discounts. Being opimistic, The Good Dinosaur multiplier would give Frozen 2,~1,350.000 admissions which would be an excellent finish and a significant increase from the first one (930k admissions). Even if it doesn't do that good, I think that 1m admission is looking fairly good. Who would have tought?
