  1. Indonesia (source: twitter @bicaraboxoffice) There are no offical total gross and admissions for 2018, but the estimated numbers are, Total gross: $399 million Total admissions: at least 137 million (local market share around 37%) Both are new records. Total admissions for local movies released in 2018 is 50,151,978 (+17.6% from 2017), a new record (broke 2017's record), and already more than 3 times the number in 2015 (16m admissions). Local film industry is booming right now. I hope it continues in 2019. Top 15 Foreign Movies of 2018: Bumblebee will pass $10m soon so there will be 9 movies above that mark, which broke the previous record of 6 movies in 2017. For comparison, 2015 only had 2. Top 15 Local Movies of 2018 (by admissions): There are 14 movies (soon will be 15) with more than 1 million admissions. Also broke the record of 2017 with 11 movies. Again, for comparison, 2015 only had 3 movies. I'm comparing those numbers with 2015's to show that this market has grown so fast in the last 3 years and is still growing.

    Indonesia Box Office 2018 - I am .... AQUAMAN

    Wow Aquaman will be the 2nd biggest superhero movie ever after Infinity War, and very likely the 3rd biggest foreign movie of all time (5th including local movies). Who would've thought? I mean, before Justice League, the idea of an Aquaman movie sounded ridiculous. But here we are now.

    Indonesia Box Office 2018 - I am .... AQUAMAN

    Thank you. It's so devastating that we've had 3 big earthquakes/tsunamis in the span of only 5 months. I'm so sad to the point that I can't watch or read the news about it anymore. It's just too much. Anyways, back to the good news. Yes, the maket is growing fast. Box office records are broken every year. Before 2017, only 9 imported movies ever reached $10m. By the end of 2018, we will have 24! Local movies box office is growing even more. Since 2016, the total admissions for Indonesian movies have been rising significantly, as you can see here: People thought 2016 was a fluke, just like 2008 & 2009. But then 2017 grew again from the year before. And 2018 grew even bigger, and now it has reached 49m and will get to 50m eventually. So the admission number for local movies has tripled in just 3 years. We'll see if this continues in 2019. But I'm very optimistic about it.

    BUMBLEBEE

    So Bumblebee opened with $4.9m in Indonesia. Comparison with other Transformers movies: Even though it's basically a spin-off, it opened about the same with 2 previous movies. I expect it to have a slightly higher total than AoE, thanks to better WOM, and year-end holidays. I don't think Mary Poppins will be a competition.

    The latest numbers for Aquaman and Wreck-It-Ralph 2: With almost 3.5x multipliers, which is very rare in Indonesia, it became the 2nd biggest WDAS movie ever, after Big Hero 6.

    Indonesia Box Office 2018 - I am .... AQUAMAN

    List of biggest imported movies of 2018 in Indonesia. Based on the latest estimates, Aquaman has climbed to #5 with $11.7m, and could be as high as #2 by the end of its run. Bumblebee will likely enter this list soon. If it makes more than $10m too, then we will have 9 movies above that milestone this year, which broke 2017 record with "only" 6 movies.

    JAPAN BOX OFFICE

    Finally saw this movie. It was just released here this weekend. One of the most creative and unique movies I've ever seen. And it's super hillarious! One of the best times at the movies this year. But why did Corpse always say it's 30 minutes long? The one-shot scene does last for 30-something minutes, but the whole movie is 97 minutes long.

    JAPAN BOX OFFICE

    Hmmm conflicting reports. So is it doing good or not? Bohemian is becoming a phenomenon. Very understandable, since Queen is HUGE in Japan, and the movie itself is a crowd-pleaser that you wanna watch over and over again. What I don't understand is how Venom's doing that good in Japan. Actually, that question is applicable for other countries too, including mine, and the US.
  10. Wait, that's... NOT what happened. You missed the whole point here. Jacob loves Queenie, but she feels it's not enough, because she wants to get married. Jacob says that they're getting married (a muggle and a witch) will get them in trouble. That's why she puts a spell on him so he will want to get married. But Newt breaks the spell. Queenie is sick of not being able to do what she wants to be happy. So she thinks Grindelwald is the answer and joins him. Jacob thinks she's crazy because, well, Grindewald is a bad guy. So now they're on the opposite sides.
  11. The hype here in Indonesia is crazy! It's one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Probably 2nd only to Infinity War. People have been asking and waiting for this movie for months. There's a theater that has 44 showtimes in one day for FB2. I expect HUGE opening.
  12. Wow is October OW record gonna be broken twice in the same year? I hope it is, cause that would be exciting. It's gonna be so close!
  13. Well, that means they missed it, because it's not on the list. Or are you saying it's making less than those countries on the list?
  14. Interestingly, it's getting overwhemingly positive reactions here in Indonesia. We do have some questionable taste in movies, but lately it has gotten better and better. Usually movies with reviews this bad have bad WOM too (eg. The Nun), so I expected the same for Venom. But from the comments I heard/read, people actually love it. Only few of them hate it. It's so weird. Maybe I should wait until this weekend for more comments. Or the movie is not that bad at all and it's entertaining enough for the general audience to enjoy.
