The Lion King had an iffy hold. Though it held better as the weekend went along, this was either on the 2nd or 3rd screen which meant that it had the seats to hold well. Unlike The Lion King, Toy Story 4 had a good hold. When a movie is on the 3rd or 4th biggest screen, it can be a huge difference when two theaters can hold over 200 seats and the other 2 can only seat 70 for example. Toy Story 4 was on the 3rd, 4th or 5th biggest screen depending on Hobbs & Shaw's performance at individual theaters. Logic dictates that this will pass Toy Story 3 for the biggest animated movie of all time but there's a lot of uncertainty with moviegoing right now. The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes had a seesaw weekend. Very good opening day followed by a shocking Friday along with a weak Saturday only to come back on Sunday. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood will pass 1m next week.

Hobbs & Shaw opening weekend projection - $2,065,000 After recalculating the multiplier due to 3D IMAX showings, Hobbs & Shaw is looking at a weekend over 2m. Sunday adm.

Even Hobbs & Shaw is rocking a 40% increase. It's probably because of a planned city wide strike on Monday which will wreak havoc on admissions and Thursday scheduling for theaters. The Lion King went from -73% with Thursday pre-sales to only -42% today. Similarly, The Confidence Man went from -76% on Thursday to -50% today.
  4. Fast & Furious 8 opened with 57,600 admissions on Easter long weekend, grossing $673,000 on Thursday. Hobbs & Shaw is looking at an estimated $363,000 which would be about 54% of Fast & Furious 8's opening day gross. For the weekend, Fast & Furious 8 made around $3,462,542 for the 5-day holiday weekend while Hobbs & Shaw are looking at retaining half of that number this weekend.

Fast & Furious films aren't usually the frontloaded type. We'll see if this drop will have an effect on its admissions this weekend. Most holdovers held alright with Once Upon A Time in Hollywood and Spider-Man: Far From Home holding above average. The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes declined sharply on Friday, down a whopping 20% from Thursday. Poor hold for White Storm 2. It seems like this might miss out on making 4m which would be a disappointing result given the first film grossed 4.1m under less inflation and in the wintertime as well. Saturday adm.

Opening day reviews are in and it has started off with a solid 4.2/5. Due to its performance today, it will get another screen on Saturday/Sunday pushing down The Lion King/Toy Story 4 and The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes. Decent walk-ins for The Lion King. Its hold isn't great but still acceptable for now. Good hold for Toy Story 4. It had the best hold of the top 10 and just snuck in ahead of The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes for #3 within the last 2 hours. The Great Detective Sherlock Holmes: The Greatest Jail-Breaker had good pre-sales but fell apart with walk-ins. As this is a frontloaded movie, expect a drop on Friday with a slight rebound for Saturday/Sunday. OK for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Today's drops were going to be slightly more inflated with yesterday suddenly becoming a half-day holiday. The White Storm 2 had a bad hold. Doraemon 2019 is still in sneaks mode and will be officially out next Thursday. Friday adm.

Decent opening day pre-sales for the anime flick. All holdovers saw inflated drops in pre-sales today due to a storm paralyzing the city yesterday leading to Sunday-like admissions on Wednesday. Only 2/9 films saw drops on Wednesday compared with Tuesday's final admissions. We should expect deflated holds for all holdovers this weekend.

I suspect they expected a range from $1.5-3m OW for The Lion King. With the way the weekend shaped up after Thursday, it is a massive disappointment but overall, it's not bad. Toy Story 4 saw a bigger dip with outside influences hindering its potential this weekend but it's a good hold. It's up to #22 all time ahead of Incredibles 2 and will pass 10m and both Monsters University and Minions for #2 animated film of all time next week. The White Storm 2: Drug Lords saw a mediocre hold but the hold above is comparing this weekend's 4 day vs. last week's 6-day opening weekend. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood had an excellent opening. It is Quentin Tarantino's highest opening weekend of all time here and it beat both Django Unchained and The Hateful Eight's opening weekends combined. The Confidence Man JP bombed. Spider-Man: Far From Home might have actually beaten Confidence Man JP for #5 and is included in the text above. I don't think it will pass Transformers 3 for #13 all time. It's too far away and Fast & Furious 8 should clobber its remaining screens next week. Doraemon: Nobita's Chronicle of the Moon Exploration's one day of sneaks has also put it in contention for the top 5, however, one detraction is that most showings were morning showings only which means more admissions but less money made.

There are several reasons for this but the main reason of the sudden slowdown is the tightening of the belt. People are saving money and going out less so this will affect box office. Many places were virtually empty today. The Lion King having mediocre word of mouth didn't help either. Neither does the ongoing violence, riots and unrest. After the closure of 8 theaters and 9 theaters being affected in total on Monday, moviegoing returned to normal levels on Tuesday. There's been several weeks of data on how protests affect the box office but I've come to the conclusion that they only dent it minimally. Today, some theaters had near normal business but most saw muted ticket sales which points to a bigger problem than just riots or protests. Though at the site of today's protests, the IMAX theater in Yuen Long recorded ticket sales of just 43, 17 and 8 (from 5-10 pm) for The Lion King. This is a 409 seater that should be more than 75% full on weekends. Toy Story 4 saw above and beyond last weekend on that screen. Onto next week where Fast & Furious 8 isn't looking great with early pre-sales either. It comes out in just 4 days and showings are bare at the moment. Sunday adm.

Holdovers don't look impressive at all although Toy Story 4 has closed the gap in pre-sales from The Lion King to about 6,500. Very good for Doraemon 2019. These are sneak previews and most have only given it 2 showtimes today. Weekend Projections 1. The Lion King - $1,882,000 2. Toy Story 4 - $1,000,000 (-53.2%)/$9,265,000 3.

The Lion King had a very poor increase for Saturday pre-sales. After only increasing 4% from Thursday's pre-sales on Friday, it really should have went above 60% today. If this doesn't make 2m this weekend after its pretty good opening day, it will be a travesty. Bad hold for Toy Story 4. Ugly holds for White Storm 2 and Spider-Man. The best performer out of the top 5 was Once Upon A Time in Hollywood but its gain wasn't all that great either.

Opening day estimate - $375,000 Solid for Toy Story 4. Meh for White Storm 2. Great opening day for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Poor opening for Confidence Man JP. Spider-Man was wiped out.

A lot of theaters are reporting showtimes nearly empty aside from a handful of showtimes. Disaster for Spider-Man.
  12. Actuals Toy Story 4 - $59,886,759 HK ($7,669,473 US) Spider-Man: Far From Home - $81,863,074 HK ($10,483,898 US) Spider-Man: Far From Home scurries into the top 15 all time (#14) while Toy Story 4 enters the top 40 (#38). Thursday Schedules The Lion King will be on either 1 or 2 screens and has taken away the biggest screen from Toy Story 4. Toy Story 4 is on the 2nd biggest screen at almost all locations during the entire day with the exception of its 10 PM showtime. The White Storm 2 is 3rd. Spider-Man: Far From Home is down to 1 or 2 showtimes at most theaters. Some have cut it completely while others have given it 3 or 4 showtimes. Pre-sales The Lion King is still looking sluggish in IMAX at the moment. It is now up to 40% filled capacity Thursday night and 25-30% on Friday night. At regular theaters, The Lion King is crushing it in the business district and in most places on HK Island. In Kowloon though, Toy Story 4 is out in front Friday night at most locations. Right now, The Lion King leads 65-35% over Toy Story 4 on Friday night excluding IMAX theaters and early pre-selling showtimes of The Lion King. That number increases to about 80-20% including everything.

Its drop is being compared to its opening weekend with 5 days of sneak previews added in. By its 4th weekend, it will have passed 10m and Minions. Taking down Toy Story 3 should be done by its 5th week. The White Storm 2: Drug Lords opened pretty well. It will finish higher than its predecessor but it may only barely crack 5m. It doesn't have strong word of mouth and these types of films tend to fade faster than most. Spider-Man: Far From Home broke 10m this week but it has steadily dropped larger every day this weekend. A finish of about 11.5-12m looks likely, putting it just below the top 10 of all time. Not great for Crayon Shin-Chan: Honeymoon Hurricane. _________________________ The Lion King IMAX pre-sales continue to look very weak. Pre-sales for the 7 PM showtime on Friday at the 2 biggest IMAX theaters are 20% and <20% full respectively. Pre-sales at regular theaters seem to be slow as well. I still think it will win next weekend with about 2m but it is tracking like The Jungle Book in pre-sales so far, which made 1.23m OW.

It was the only movie in the top 3 to increase from its Tuesday pre-sales today. It is aiming for about 43,000-44,000 admissions today. OK for The White Storm 2 but this is a walk-in movie. Every day since its release on Tuesday, it has done 70% of its business through walk-ins. It is shooting for 32,000 today. Spider-Man: Far From Home, like White Storm 2, has also seen 70% or more of its business come from walk-ins. It should slip under the 70% mark today so a total of about 9,000 admissions is expected. Theater reports Toy Story 4 is doing well with pre-sales, however, theaters have been reluctant to give Toy Story 4 another screen this weekend even though it broke 100,000 admissions on both Saturday/Sunday last weekend. Some theaters have given the biggest screen to White Storm 2 with the 10 PM and midnight showings while earlier showtimes has seen Toy Story 4 grab the biggest screen. Most seem content to give both films 2 screens each. Spider-Man is still on almost 1 screen and the last screen (if any) goes to any other film. ______________________ The Lion King has started IMAX pre-selling but it is looked pretty weak so far. There's a chance that Toy Story 4 could threepeat if it does not get its act together.
