  1. The first Mamma Mia actually made around $130m in the UK. BOM’s exchange rate calculations are trash. If a film is re-releaed they automatically adjust the $ total to the current ER at the time, which makes no sense at all.
  2. The Vue website have introduced a new queuing system to book tickets. Seems a bit ridiculous. I went on and was 22,000 in the queue with a wait time of 20 minutes. At least we know today is a good day for BO. Probably some increases from yesterday.
  3. Also, today is the first day of proper cool and rainy weather across the UK in months so I expect it will be a very strong day at the BO.
  4. The pound is really weak right now. Over the past few months it’s dropped from 1.4 to 1.3, so not great for BO totals in $.
  5. Went to see Incredibles 2 yesterday. To my horror, the air conditioning was broken so it wasn’t the most pleasant experience. Film was great though, expect it’ll get close to £50m mark in the end. Speaking of heat, Met Office is predicting 37 degrees here with a chance the all time record of 38.5 degrees could be broken. What is this madness!? Crazy summer we’re having. Almost no rain in 2 months.
  6. For me, the more times I watch DH1, the more I love it. It’s kind of the opposite for DH2, and I can’t help but nit pick at so many things in the final 20 minutes. Even though DH1 essentially is more of an incomplete film, there’s something so satisfying about it. I love the rawness and authenticity of it, and you can really sense the impending danger. HBP is quite similar. I remember when I watched it for the first time I really didn’t know what the think but the more you watch it, the more you pick out the amazing character moments. Visually it’s also a treat. I tend to the do the opposite for DH2 which annoys me but I can’t help it. Maybe it’s because it’s the last one and from reading the books you have an image of exactly how the film will be. Don’t get me wrong, there are many scenes in DH2 that are fantastic and some of the best in the series (Prince’s tale) but it lacked the emotion of a truly epic finale. There were many deaths we didn’t even see and every scene seems to be pushed along too quickly. I really wanted to get fully invested in the final battle and feel for the characters as they struggled to survive but pacing/structure issues took the upper hand.
  7. Really liked it, especially love that they showed he mirror of erised scene.
  8. Fantastic opening considering weather and sporting events. Will have a massive run over the summer holidays as kids break up this weekend. BO is back after a very quiet month. Could be an interesting race for number one this weekend but I expect Mamma Mia will take the crown. Should also be huge.
  9. Temps are expected to be in 30s down here in the south this weekend with mostly sunshine.. tomorrow some thunderstorms though and next week looks similar with temperatures cooling down. Incredbiles 2 will do big business nonetheless, hopefully at least £10m OW, although third place play off and WC final on Saturday and Sunday as well as Wimbledon final will likely dent things. Schools will be starting to break up in England now so expect very strong legs for Incredibles over throughout the summer. The BO has been unbelievably dead so I2 can really capitalise.

    After it's 2nd week of $9.5m, JW has completely collapsed in the UK and only made $12m in 3 weeks. Deadly combo of the World Cup and one of the warmest summers on record that we are currently having.
  11. Should do very well. £40m+, £50m might be on the cards. For now, the BO will be suffering with this ongoing very warm weather and the World Cup. We're having the best summer in years and it looks set to continue through July.
  12. I would say around the first right now. Potter was always very consistent in the UK, so I don't see why it would suddenly jump by £10m.
  13. Amazing weather this weekend and looks like this weekend too. No big releases either so probably a very quiet week for cinemas and some big drops.
  14. Weather is looking very nice this weekend, and potential heatwave next week, so expect the BO to suffer even more.
  15. The England game last night had an incredible 21m viewers. The game on Sunday will likely have big impact on the box office.
