Romania box office update (March 17th):

 

"Captain Marvel" has already passed the $1M-mark. The movie shows great legs, as the movie currently sits at $1.068M. The run resembles "Black Panther"s run. ( $565K / $567K on OW and $1.07M / $1.16M after second weekend, respectively). "Black Panther" grossed $2M in Romania, I'm really curious to see if "Captain Marvel" can replicate this achievement.

 

The Romanian movie "Faci sau Taci" (Translated into "Do it or shut up") has opened to $144K / 605K RON.


"The Queen's Corgi" has opened at no.3, grossing $114K / 481K RON on its first weekend in theaters.

 

"Touch me not" bombs, grossing a mere $18K / 79K RON on OW.

 

"Alita:Battle Angel" is still in the top 10, now at $900K.

 

Other holdovers: Green Book $143K, Oh, Ramona! $1.16M, What Men Want $447K, Cold Pursuit $455K, HTTYD3 $807K.

 

Next weekend sees the release date of "Us".

"Us" could have a very impressive opening weekend in Romania, many people are looking forward to seeing it.

Both SW and the MCU are the biggest franchises in Romania. Imo, EG could've taken the second spot if it didn't open on Orthodox Easter Sunday (but legs will be great). SW9 will probably fall a bit short, because TLJ wasn't very liked in Romania

You're right. FF is our biggest franchise, I've completely forgotten about it. Haven't been tracking numbers when F8 came out

Well I don't really agree with this.

An unexpected journey was nr 2 movie of all time (in 2012) behind only avatar. 

Hobbit 2 as nr 3 behind Hobbit1 and Avatar, hold most of it's admisson, didn't fall hard like TLJ. Also it's was nr 1 for 2013.

Then in 2014 Hobbit 3 breaks the OW record, and because the second biggest movie off alltime with 525k admission. 

 

I mean at that point in time it was the biggest franchise in Romania so saying it's not on the same lv is a bit strange because we didn't get anymore recent movies.

I do agree that FF is bigger because FF7 wasn't released to long after Thehobbit 3 and got over 660k admission becomeing the new nr2 destroying OW record. Then Starwars 7 came along did the same but it didn't pass FF7 it got 600k admission. RO didn't come close to the Hobbit, not even the worste of the hobbit. Then you have TLJ doing 390k thats less then the first hobbit movie in 2012 and only slightly over Hobbit 2 with 388k. And I won't use solo because it has nothing to do with the main story line and woudn't help SW case.

 

So I think you can atlest put The hobbit at the level of SW, it has been number 2 of all time 2 times, It got the OW record once. 

SW also got the OW record only once, 1 movie bigger than hobbit 1/3 all others lower. This even with market growth in admission. End Thehobbit ended with a high note in Admission so it's not like it was on the decline. Also SW only ever got the nr 3 possition.

 

FF is bigger, 2 times OW record + 2 times nr 2 of all time. I don't think there is any disputing this. 

I would rank it this way:

 

FF

H

SW
