Inbetweeners slot between the dawn and the gods....

Weekend Report by Jajang

No Surprises who is number this weekend. But Breaking Dawn 1 has taken a dive as expected. Given it's lower than expected opening last weekend, there was a suspicion that this film might see a better hold than the previous films. It's hold was similar to Eclipse though Eclipse currenlty holds a 3m lead over Breaking Dawn 1. Eclipse ended up making 32m, something that Breaking Dawn 1 would have been expected to beat. That does look shaky at the moment given the competition over christmas. New Moon fell a lot harder than either film but that was from a much higher opening which was expected. Of note, both of the Deathly Hallows Films held a much better 56% from a much larger opening (much much larger in the case of DH2 ;) ). The surprise of the weekend however was the strength of the Inbetweeners. I think most including myself would have picked immortals to be the stronger film. 2.9m is an excellent result showing this cult show has a very strong following here. Speaking of The immortals, I have to say i'm dissappointed in this result. Opening only with 1.8m, it appears the film is going to struggle here in australia. (I guess the opening in the US and collapse during the second weekend should have awoken to me to this.). Arthur Christmas started it's run this weekend with a weak 1.3m. But given it will play strongly for sometime (up to christmas) and with much of the country going on holiday in the coming weeks (if not already), all is not lost for the film. It's the competition it will face is where it may struggle (Who let the cat out again ;) )... Ides of March opened to a strong 941k on only 84 screens in 5th. Not much else to say about the top 20 except Red Dog appears it will finally spend it's final week in the top 20. it opened some 17 weekends ago now, with only 1.8m, holding virtually steady for weeks on end and eventually has wound up with 21.3m. Considering the DVD / Blueray was released over the weekend just gone, it's amazing it's still charting and speaks volumes of the film. Lets hope it's overseas run is as lucrative as the Australian run has been. (or at least it gets a good chance at an overseas run)

What jumps out at me is In Time's 8mill plus gross. Why do you think it did so well in Australia? That's much better than it did in NA.

Didn't think you guys were anywhere close being big on the inbetweeners. Is a small release in ths US looking possible now?

Yeah its had a good run here but I will say the marketplace was weak at the time and it led for 2 weeks. It's had strong holds over the weeks. Should cross 9m but probably be short of 10m though holidays are now in play and could extend it's run.

As a performer JT is very popular here, but the same can be said for a lot of other underperforming places.TBCH, we're all as surprised as you!

Me neither. I expected about a 1.5m opening and certainly not nearly 3m. Quite a result. I think this will see some kind of US release. Even if limited.
