Indonesia Box Office 2021 - second reopening 16 September

Recommended Posts

Fantasy Island's actual OW number in Indonesia is better than the estimate.

311k actual admission vs 289k estimated.

 

The Cinepoint Flash score (7/10) is not good though, so legs will be short.

 

Cinepoint Flash is exit polling that I conducted through this app (Cinepoint), from actual moviegoers fresh out of their respective showings.

If you ask why I ask for phone number when using Cinepoint, this is why. All rating submissions are verified, no trolls.

Going by 4% drop it shall do much more than 100k. 200k may be.

Unfortunately, screens are practically nonexistent now, crushed by local blockbuster Milea: Suara Dari Dilan. This movie passed 2M admission on Tue, heading for the vicinity 3M by this weekend or shortly after.

Its predecessor, Dilan 1991, once held the opening day record for Indonesia, beating Avengers: Infinity War. I tweeted about it and got quoted by Deadline.

I just noticed that Indonesia's two largest cinema chain, XXI and CGV, have also changed Birds of Prey title in their website and booking app.

Meanwhile, The Gentlemen and Brahms: The Boy II opened yesterday. The Call of the Wild will follow tomorrow.

 

The next big one will be Sonic on the 26th. Videogame adaptations may be associated with box office failures in general, but in Indonesia the last 6 movies (Warcraft to Detective Pikachu, 2016 to 2019) ALWAYS breaks 1 million admission.

Too bad I can't attend the premiere screening tonight.

Indonesia is approaching a near-lockdown situation. 

More and more cities are closing schools and offices.

Cinemas recently included.

Some local tentpoles have delayed their releases with more to follow.

The government has declared state of emergency until 29 May.

The total number of daily showtimes (normally upwards of 10K) has dropped significantly in the past 4 days.

Expect an even steeper drop Monday, when capital Jakarta closes all cinemas.

 

Stay safe everyone.

Two months since my last post. All cinemas in the country are still closed.

I do a continuous update on my Twitter account regarding cinema reopening readiness all over the world.

Sadly, Indonesia is still one of the worst impacted.

 

However, it looks more likely that we will open our cinemas on July, after nearly 4 months of complete shutdown. 

 

The "economy needs to be restarted, virus be damned" school of thought is seemingly gaining more traction.

 

Let's see about one month from now.
