Australian Box Office | Box Office is open | Wonder Woman 1984 massive start 6m+ after 2 days

Recommended Posts

Cume now $15.56m.

 

What were the totals of the previous Monsterverse films? I don't think any of them cleared $20m so this should be #1 easily with $20m+. Probably $22.5-25m

In 2019, the weekdays before Good Friday were strong. This time weekdays after Easter are strong. Why was that?

 

Edit: On re-checking weekdays after Easter were also good in 2019.

It's school holidays, inflates the weekdays. In 2019, Easter was later in April.

Ohh. I thought Easter inflated the weekdays before Good Friday. I guess GvK can reach A$27-30M in full run since there won't be any competition for long time.

Godzilla up to 20.8m now. It's still school holidays so weekdays will be good this week also.

Also cinemas in south east Queensland were also shut Monday to Thursday before Easter. That removes about 15% or so.

School holiday bumps.

 

Peter Rabbit 2 takes top spot for the week with a cume of $14.74m. Godzilla vs Kong up to $22.5m

Mortal Kombat producing a knock out victory at the top  of the charts here.  Frankly I would have been happy with the result here pre-covid which is a good sign for the movie market here.  Godzilla vs Kong continuing on it's merry way to nearly 30m (it's going to be close, 26m and counting.)  Remember this is like making 300m in the US.  Peter Rabbit 2 also performing quite well with nearly 19m to date.

oh and small update on the list above....

 

Godzilla vs Kong in top spot now and Peter Rabbit 2 has shifted into 5th pushing tenet out of the top 5.

quick update.  Wrath of Man takes top spot from MK which dips a hefty 54%.  While GodzillaVKong has been giving 30m a good shake here, it's looking like it will fall short now and probably finalise between 27m and 28m.

And then there were fifty! We finally have fifty movies that have surpassed $1m in the pandemic era (since cinemas reopened at the beginning of July last year). You can see the gradual inflation of the number one movie, from Tenet which opened to ~2.5m and took six weeks to surpass 10m and 16 weeks to surpass $15m, to WW84 which reached 15m after two weeks and capped out just under 25m to GvK which as Jajang says will finish a bit shy of 30m. All Warners films too.

I'd estimate the YTD box office to be around $205m after four months, more than half the $401.2m made all last year. So the recovery, at least in Australia, is going quite well. The box office still isn't what it was pre-COVID, but we're slowly getting there.

A new cinema opened in Edmondson Park, just recently, in Ed Square shopping centre. It's got six screens, two Vmax and four regular, and it's quite nice. I've gone there twice now to see Mortal Kombat (poor) and Wrath of Man (a bit serious but not bad), it's now my closest theatre, so I'll probably be going there a lot. The whole centre is done up very nicely, and it's one of the few examples we have here in Australia (at least in Sydney) of building the infrastructure first, then putting everything else in. The South West Rail Link opened back in 2015 and at the time Edmondson Park Station was basically in the middle of nowhere. Now it's got new housing, both low and medium density, and a shopping centre and other amenities. It's basically like how development should occur instead of being retrofitted later on.

Another update. YTD box office should be around 220m-odd.
