Remember: these are admission numbers, not € or $!

 

 

 

Some observations:

 

 

Titanic still carries the crown for most admissions in Germany by far. Together with P. Jackson, Cameron is also the only director who achieved 10 Mio + admissions in Germany twice. 

 

2013 and 2014 were the first years in which the #1 spot was taken by two German movies in a row.

 

2012-2014 was the first time that no Hollywood-studio movie took the #1 spot for three consecutive years.

 

Harry Potter halved its admission number from the first to the last movie.

I don't think that can be predicted, the last three years the Hobbit seemed to have the #1 in its bag and was twice beaten by a totally unexpected German movie and once by an unexpected French movie.

 

I doubt anyone would have predicted the #1 spot for either of the three.

 

 

For this year I think buzz will be on the side of SW - but who knows what other movie might manage to generate the WoM spiral needed to end up #1 here. 

 

"Honig im Kopf" was a movie I heard so many people go "Oh no... not again a movie by and with Til Schweiger" before its release. But a superb marketing campaign and good WoM made its run stronger and stronger and now it is #1.

According to the list you just posted The Jungle Book made 9.3M more admissions than Titanic.

According to the list you just posted The Jungle Book made 9.3M more admissions than Titanic.

here are Germany's Top100 since 1968, by admissions. Of course, some of them are only approximations, and many have multiple releases (among them nearly all Disney movies).

 

in case you don't know those movies (titles are dubbed), the Top10 with original titles:

#1: The Jungle Book - 27mil admissions

#2: Titanic - 19mil

#3: Once Upon a Time in the West - 13mil

#4: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - 13mil

#5: Trinity is Still my Name! - 12mil

#6: The Fellowship of the Ring - 12mil

#7: The Lion King - 12mil

#8: Der Schuh des Manitu - 12mil (2001, highest domestic movie)

#9: Avatar - 11mil

#10: Aristocats - 11mil
