  1. TLK was really good, not as good as the animated film but really beautiful and most ornate the voice actors did great. Forgot that school holidays are on at the moment, so that will help with early showing the next two days. Cinema was 80% full and most of the audience liked it, some laughs, lots of tears. The biggest pop though was actually the Frozen II trailer as there was so many kids in the showing they where yelling out Elsa, Anna , Frozen etc And I think most of them were already trying to convince parents/grandparents to take them. Angry Birds 2 also got a surprisingly decent reaction, Ugly dolls was not well received.
  2. Copy and pasted from NZ thread. The Lion King Opening Day (Wed 17/07/2019) - Albany Cinemas (12 hours before open) 10:00am 117/288 10:00am GC 29/40 10:30am 128/364 10:30am GC 23/30 11:00am 118/216 11:50am 3D 66/216 12:40pm GC 3D 35/40 12:45pm 108/288 1:15pm 97/364 1:15pm GC 27/30 1:40pm 46/216 2:30pm 63/216 3:30pm 35/288 3:30pm GC 30/40 4:00pm 34/364 4:00pm GC 22/30 4:20pm 40/216 5:15pm 3D 51/216 6:10pm GC 37/40 6:15pm 122/288 6:40pm GC 30/30 6:45pm 130/364 7:00pm 134/216 7:30pm 87/216 8:00pm 87/216 8:50pm GC 40/40 9:00pm 37/288 9:20pm GC 30/30 9.25pm 28/364 Total 1831/5554 (32.96%) 1 showing added since Sunday (216 more seats) 905 more tickets sold since Sunday Still lots of room for walk ups but a nice increase of the last few days. I’m going to the 10am screening, so will let you know how much more it filled up and also audience response. It’s my first time doing this but Albany is a decent amount of the NZ market (my guess is 5-10%) I’ve averaged the tickets down to $20 due to children and student prices. Already over $36,000 from opening day in Albany I think it will translate to an Opening Weekend of roughly $2.5m NZD/$1.7m USD. I’m probably very far off the mark, it will likely get easier to predict as I do more movies like this and work out a formula and get some good comps.

  4. She clarified her remarks in EW a short while ago. Quote below: “The question I was answering in my conversation with the contemporary artist, David Salle, was about the confrontation between political correctness and art,” she continues. “I personally feel that, in an ideal world, any actor should be able to play anybody and Art, in all forms, should be immune to political correctness. That is the point I was making, albeit didn’t come across that way. I recognize that in reality, there is a wide spread discrepancy amongst my industry that favors Caucasian, cis gendered actors and that not every actor has been given the same opportunities that I have been privileged to. I continue to support, and always have, diversity in every industry and will continue to fight for projects where everyone is included.”
  5. She’s also going to be in a film where Taika (a Jewish/Maori Guy) is playing Hitler. I agree with a lot of what she is saying, as long as race doesn’t play a huge part in who the character is then it should be open to however best suits the part.
  6. I’ve copied and pasted myself from the NZ thread. My first time doing this so please take it easy, first of all up to 28 screenings which is a lot, hard to compare to midnight releases like SW and HP films that are popular over here as those are midnight releases. That being said this seems to be similar to the two most recent Avengers films although I don’t have numbers.  Sales seem pretty good and I’ll probably do this at 10pm on Tuesday night 12 hours before the first showings.

  9. Still thinking around 1.5B although less confident now than I was a month or two ago.
  10. They got him locked down with The Mandalorian for a little longer, would love to see him make a Star Wars film though. Either that or can he use his technological wizardry to somehow give us another 2D animated feature!
  11. I wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case, I personally think it will do a little more than that but it’s kinda hard to know for sure. But even with only half of Your Name WWY should top Aladdin. Frozen II is more interesting that could drop as well, not often a sequel does better in Japan and the first one was also a perfect storm. But as I said it’ll probably go Frozen II > WWY > Aladdin.
  12. I was partially shot here in New Zealand as well. I think the western audience should be fine with it as long as the action is on point, could give Fantasy Epic vibes of done correctly.
  13. The more the merrier, glad at least a couple of those are women of colour. I thinks it’s smart to appeal to girls in genres that are typically deemed for males, means you have a chance to appeal to a wider audience.
