Bohemian Rhapsody managed a historic opening of 1,3M USD and 220.665 admissions over the weekend. This narrowly beat Twilight-Dawn part 2 for the record of the biggest OW ever in November -admissions wise-. This is obviously inflated by the 4-day holiday weekend + fan rush, so it could be frontloaded but it is still a brilliant result.  

 

The Nutcracker rose over the weekend but the end result will likely be bad, though not terribly so, it must have already outgrossed Wrinkle in Time.

 

For the month the next big things are Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes on Grindelwald on November 15th and Wi-Fi Ralph (yes, that's the latin spanish title) on November 23rd (The Grinch opens here on December 6th) The sequels of both movies did similar numbers 550-600k admissions. Ralph is the least successful "modern" Disney Animation movie so it will be interesting if the sequel can reach the viewers of the other movies (which are all very consistent in the 900k range)

    This week was one of the weakest of the year, with just 286k admissions (a mark that Bohemian Rhapsody will probably reach by itself when the current week is reported) 

     

    Venom led very narrowly against Halloween which surprised with an increase! Local movie Contra el Demonio was a disappointment but not a bomb. Is already the second largest local release of the year (that is very sad).  Bohemian Rhapsody Wednesday previews were huge with over 10k admissions, surpassing the week total of the other new release Papillon.

    Actuals on USD from last weekend. 

     

    1 Bohemian Rhapsody Fox $1,259,970 - 179 - $7,039 $1,259,970 1
    2 The Nutcracker and the Four Realms Disney $283,806 - n/a - n/a $283,806 1
    3 Venom (2018) Sony $259,384 +23.2% 68 -43 $3,814 $3,174,557 5
    4 Halloween (2018) UPI $233,058 +12.8% 63 -4 $3,699 $816,792 3
    10 Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween Sony $27,663 -23.7% 20 -34 $1,383 $319,776 4
    - The House With A Clock In Its Walls UPI $265 - 1 - $265 $491,286 7

     

    After months there's finally enough films reported to be worth a post. Fox even bothered to report Bohemian Rhapsody gross! It was a bit under $1,3M USD but still very good. Nutcracker opening is similar to The House With a Clock and will likely end with a similar gross and poor legs. It has already fallen below Smallfoot on dailies placements. 

     

    Venom and Halloween increased thanks to the holidays. Venom outgrossed GOTG2 on USD but it doesn't have much steam left. The same with Halloween, will probably crawl over 1M USD.

    Familiar faces this weekend as Overlord was the highest debut at sixth. Venom can't keep going much longer as family movies are much more resilient and leggy, though nutcracker weekend rises are somewhat extreme.

    Bohemian Rhapsody posted a giant opening week grossing a billion pesos, reaching already the 20th spot on the yearly gross chart and would have to be very frontloaded to not make it to the top ten. 

     

    The super 4 day holiday weekend as usual aided more the strongest holdovers. Venom increasing is the last hurra because now the drops will be steep but will end its run as a slightly above average superhero movie. Halloween held almost flat for second week in a row, but should collapse from now on. Smallfoot increased a spectacular 20% thanks to being the only animated movie in theaters. Is now the most attended WBA movie ever and will outgross Storks next week. WB has been very smart this year with the release date of its animated flicks, both Smallfoot and Teen Titans had taken advantage of the huge gaps left by the others studios and have been very successful. Contra el Demonio hold is just okay but that's enough to be on track of beating every Chilean movie of last year. Again, that's just sad. 

     

    On the new releases, Nutcracker opening almost matched perfectly The House with a Clock on its wall opening. It has a few weeks until Ralph sucks all the air on the family front (In Chile animation >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> live action, as far as family audiences go). The Siren on other hand bombed badly because the horror market is oversaturated.

     

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald starts its previews today, and they look very good but not amazing. It should do well, especially given that Venom is fading (see this weekend placements) but faces a lot of competition down the road and is unlikely to repeat the Fantastic Legs of the last one so it needs to open higher.

    6 Overlord PPI $67,950 - 61 - $1,114 $80,974 1

     

    Good hold for Bohemian Rhapsody coming from the holidays, everything else crashed and Overlord bombed.

     

    In other news, Fantastic Beast's limited previews were seventh on Wednesday. I've never seen previews reported on daily placement's before and is weird that it wasn't reported on Tuesday that had bigger previews (from what I can tell, following Chilean box office is very artisanal) 

     

    In any case, FB1 OW was around 650K USD and given that BR has held well around the world it could open second and not be a terrible result but let's hope for a strong run that boost the overall box office (which accumulates a fairly anemical growth of 1,38%)

    Great hold for Bohemian Rhapsody. It's unusual (though not unheard o) for non-family movies to post numbers like that. It has grossed around $2,6M USD. If it holds as well as in the rest of the world it could make a run for 1M admissions but it will be tough. 

     

    Nutcracker hold could be worse, especially given that the weekend fell close to 60%, but is barely ahead of Smallfoot 7th week. BTW, now Smallfoot is the undisputable WBA champion, has grossed $2,16M USD. I think Chile is the eleventh largest market OS which is a huge overperformance. And as I said, Venom now starts its collapse, it won't reach 700k but it's not a bad result, not at all. 

     

    FB2 two-day previews (one showing per screen each day) sold 13k tickets. Is really hard to compare but is good result nevertheless. Doing a very rough estimate based on BR previews, FB2 could open 26% higher than the first one. 

    On its proper opening day it was second to Bohemian Rhapsody, but given the number that BR is doing, it could land second and still have a healthy increase. And maybe it can take the throne on Saturday on Sunday, given that HP fandom obviously skews younger than BR.

    As expected, in the end Fantastic Beast was able to defeat Bohemian Rhapsody and is looking to a strong result. It was even able tu put FB1 on the top ten through double features! 

     

    The rest was more of the same tough Smallfoot being (mostly) third on its 8th weekend is kinda impressive. Will be destroyed by Ralph but it had a good run regardless.

    Placements Thursday 22nd :

     

     

    Ralph 2 opened second. Without knowing BR hold last week is hard to know if it is bad or "just good", but November has consistently delivered the worst openings from both WDA and Pixar. On top of that, from the showtimes that I checked yesterday, it must have barely defeated FB2 and that doesn't spell that good 

     

    It will probably win the proper weekend (if it doesn't then it would be troubling) but the problem is that while November releases usually have strong legs (Good Dinosaur did 6,27x its OW) this year December is packed and have both Grinch and Spiderverse. Ralph is very unlikely to stay on theaters past New year that was something the Good Dinosaur was able to do. 

     

    On other notes, is kinda ridiculous that Smallfoot (4th) held better against Ralph than Nutcracker (6th) considering it lost most of its screens to Ralph but that's just how this market works. However, the numbers must be very weak. And yes, that is First Man on 5th place, interestingly its release isn't limited but it isn't exactly wide either. In any case, not being able to defeat the 9th Thursday of an animated flick with fewer screens is pathetic.

    While Fantastic Beasts won the weekend, BR had better weekdays and won overall in a photo finish. Not in gross though.

    Fantastic Beasts 2 beat FB1 by 23% counting previews and grossed $1,134M USD. Bohemian Rhapsody has crossed 3M USD and has plenty of steam left.

     

    Those two movies were the only ones doing significant numbers. Smallfoot had another nice hold but reaching 600k admissions is just a bridge too far. Nutcracker had it first not terrible drop and crossed 100k admissions. 

     

    Every other holdover entered "end of run" stage with monstrous drops. New releases bar FB2 bombed and limited local movie Dry Martina was tenth.

    As expected, Ralph 2 did win the weekend. However, early signs point that it will not be able to match the standard Disney Opening that is 200k+. It will improve significantly over Ralph 1, but that has the lowest opening of any Disney or Pixar animation. It's an Ant-man and the wasp-like situation when while it beat the first movie by a significant margin, it still ends underwhelming by the brand standards.

    In blue end-year releases. 

     

    You see the pattern right? I don't know why Disney insist on releasing its animated movies here in November/December. They tend to have stronger legs than usual but this year December is packed. I expect Ralph 2 to open around Tangled.

    Well, now I've discovered that these placements are actually cumulative, so the Sunday placement is actually the placement for the whole weekend. I will still do this format when there's something interesting like this weekend with Burn the Stage: The movie. 

     

    The Korean movie about the k-pop band BTS won Thursday despite being played by a single theatre chain (which has roughly 40% of the market) and remained third for the whole weekend despite not having any shows on Friday. Wow. I don't think that FB2 is crashing *that* hard so BTS could have looked to 50k+ admissions, we will know in a week or so. 

     

    Other things were boring. Bohemian Rhapsody is still holding well, playing more like an animated movie than a live action. Robin  Hood was 5th, Instant Family 6th and Widows 7th.

    Some updates: The Grinch landed second behind Ralph's third Thursday. I would say that is underwhelming but at this point, it was fairly expected due to its performance in the rest of Latin America. In fact, I tough it could be third behind Bohemian Rhapsody.  The other release, The possession of Hannah Grace, was fifth. 

     

    But with the Grinch release, it starts the December bloodbath and Summer soon after that: Here are the dates for the big releases/non trivial grosses 

     

    December:

    Dec 6th: The Grinch

    Dec 13th: Aquaman

    Dec 20th*: Spider-man into the Spiderverse, Once upon a Deadpool (likely limited)

    Dec 27th*:  Bumblebee 

     

    *Weekend depressed by Holidays (Christmas/New Year)

     

    Everything here is very nicely spread out and I'd say that Aquaman and Spiderverse are the big contenders. With good WOM Spiderverse could have a very long run over January.

     

    Summer (January-February)

    Jan 3rd: Mortal Engines

    Jan 10th: Mary Poppins; Dragon Ball Super: Broly; Creed II

    Jan 17th*: Glass 

    Jan 24th*:  How to Train your Dragon 3

    Feb 7th: The Lego Movie 2 

    Feb 14th: Alita Battle Angel 

     

    So far February looks very empty, but I think studios are going to move more things there. Mary Poppins opening in the same weekend as Dragon Ball Super is dumb, the DB franchise opens with blockbuster-like numbers but is extremely frontloaded, MP would do much better on any other weekend (or February).  The big behemoth is clearly How to Train Your Dragon 3, that is going to be THE movie of the summer. I hope the Lego Movie 2 can increase and at least reach the numbers of other WBA movies like Storks or Smallfoot, animation can co-exist fairly well on Summer (Ferdinand did 700k admission in the middle of Coco legendary run). Glass should do well and I have no idea with Alita.

    Weekend Placements 5-9 December.

    1. Ralph Breaks the Internet
    2. The Grinch
    3. Bohemian Rhapsody
    4. Fantastic Beasts 2
    5. Possession of Hannah Grace 

    Ralph 2 leads with an estimated (by me using DL drop) 410K USD. So far is behaving like a stronger Good Dinosaur (6,2x) but it remains to be seen if it can sustain the comp over this packed month, I think is unlikely. 

    The Grinch likely had an opening in the 300k USD range which is the lowest for Illumination bar Sing that had its opening deflated by Christmas. It wouldn't be that terrible had it opened in a slow month, but now it's going to get brutal screen loses as soon as Spiderverse opens on 20th. 

     

    There's is an actual: Possession of Hannah Grace did 107K which is fine an nothing else. It's more useful as a benchmark because it means that BR and FB2 are still doing significant numbers.

     

    Unfortunately, the weekly data hasn't been updated in almost three weeks. It will get updated eventually I guess.

    Aquaman opens today. Surprisingly, it doesn't have restrictions, which usually means a lack of confidence in a blockbuster, but for now, let's not read too much into it, it should still open first. 

     

    In other news, presales for Dragon Ball Super Broly already started even though it opens on January 10th! Infinity War is the only movie that I can recall started presales that early.

    Weekend Placement: 13-16 December

    1. Aquaman
    2. Ralph Breaks the Internet
    3. The Grinch
    4. Bohemian Rhapsody 
    5. Fantastic Beasts 2

    As expected Aquaman debuted first, but being WB there's no way to know how much it did and will do until the weekly admissions get updated again (if ever).

     

    Ralph 2 held badly with a 41% drop per DL and a gross of 240k USD. It will end up around 3M USD, lower than the original in dollars and only a very small increase in admissions. If Spiderverse hurts it badly next weekend it could end up below the Good Dinosaur as the lowest grossing Disney-Pixar animation since Princess and the Frog

     

    Grinch continues to do badly, and together with the rest of the holdovers, it should be removed from theaters relatively soon. Though kudos to FB2 for remaining in the top 5 despite being reduced to a single showtime in most of its remaining screens. 

     

    Also: Very strong early presales for Dragon Ball Super: Broly. Not surprising since is very fan-driven and easily the most frontloaded franchise in the country, but I think it has a chance to surpass Resurrection F and Battle of the Gods
