£10.6m SS. Very good, but I see it dropping off BvS style. Doubt it reaches much more than £25m.

 

 

I think it'll have similar legs to BvS too which should put around £26-27m with the same multi which isn't great although unlike BvS it has an extra week of holidays plus bank holiday at the end of August which may help its legs since there is no big film opening. It'll probably be number 1 next week since Mike and Dave need Wedding Dates and The Shallows won't make much of a dent.

Warner Bros’ comic book adaptation scored a strong $14.6m (£11.2m) opening from its 573 sites

 Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justicelanded with $19.1m (£14.62m) and went on to take $47.7m (£36.58m). 

 

Hit hard by the good weather, Finding Dory fell 51% in its second weekend as it dropped to second with $5.2m (£4m).

Disney’s latest Pixar offering enjoyed a terrific first week as it amassed $21.1m (£16.2m) across its opening seven days, meaning it has now reached $26.5m (£20.3m) after only ten days in play.

Same multiplier for SS would get it to £28m, so I guess we can say £30m is a possibility, although I think it'll drop very fast over the next few weeks with bad WOM and good weather forecasted.

Exactly the same drop as Inside Out last year (51%). Way better than the £3.6M estimated yesterday.

Shocked that Vue Westfield was only fifth this week behind Vue Westfield Stratford City and that BFI IMAX was beaten by Cineworld Sheffield I'm guessing Glasgow got a boost from the new 4DX. Empire LS did very well as well. 

 

Interesting that the top ten either have IMAX, 4DX or both. Only the two Vues don't them but both have PLF in VueXtreme.

Wow. That is ridiculously early. It will have a massive opening for sure, though.

 

Just checked my local cinema, they have a show at 3:30 and 6:50am!! They must be expecting huge numbers.

 

Vue Westfield already have 7 midnight shows. And they've also listed their full schedule for OD, which is unusual.

 

Over/Under £15m OW should be the target, imo.

I'm wondering if the long hiatus/nostalgia and the good publicity from the theater play will push it to 20m pounds. DH2 opened to 23m.

No way, it won't reach £20m, that's just too high. I do expect it's OD to be around £6-7m though, but it'll drop off over Saturday and Sunday.

Maybe this is an attempt at capturing the pent-up demand from frustrated crowds who failed to get a Cursed Child ticket? Or perhaps even trying to create an illusion of comparable scarcity?

UNIVERSAL

Falling 54% (excluding previews), Jason Bourne raced to a $3.2m (£2.44m) second weekend as it dropped to third.

Universal’s action sequel is up to $18.4m (£14.05m) after 12 days in play and is now the second-highest grossing Bourne outing in the UK.

It’s currently tracking ahead of series leader The Bourne Ultimatum, which stood at $16.9m (£12.93m) at the same stage.

Also for Universal, The Secret Life Of Pets hopped to an extra $584,000 (£447,219) for an excellent $41.9m (£32.07m) after seven weeks in play.

Central Intelligence now stands at $11m (£8.46m).

EONE

The BFG fell 50% on its way to a non-final $2.2m (£1.7m) third weekend from its 621 sites.

eOne’s Roald Dahl adaptation enjoyed another prosperous midweek session with $5.2m (£4m) added over Mon-Thurs, and has marched past the £20m mark with $26.4m (£20.2m) to date.

 

BFG recorded another huge week, it seems it's on track for £30m which is incredible really. No one expected anywhere near this level of success, especially as it is competing with Dory.

 

As for this weekend, SS as expected will likely have a big drop. Around 65% wouldn't surprise me, for about £4m. It won't be helped by the weather which is meant to be warm this weekend. By Sunday, it should be flirting with £20m. 

 

Dory should have a big Mon-Thu again, but I can see another drop of 50% over the weekend due to the weather, so probably £26-27m by Sunday. It's turning even hotter during the first part of next week (up to 32 degrees), so Dory will suffer again.

 

Pete's Dragon releases this weekend, it should have a nice little run I think, with good legs.

No one expected it? I believe I told you the distributor were forecasting it before it opened ;)

Well no one on here seemed to believe it would make a run for £30m, I certainly didn't. Happy to be proved wrong, though.

I think its poor performance in the USA and Dory coming a week later made people think it wasn't going to breakout but clearly it struck a chord with audiences.

Dory will definitely suffer at the weekend and during the mini-heatwave/Spanish plume setup forecast for early next week. If there's a thundery breakdown on Wednesday (eminently possible with such a configuration) it should have a big day then.

 

The BFG is literally making more money on weekdays than weekend days. Do summer holiday family flicks usually play like that?

Usually yes, business is much more spread out and families will usually take kids out during the week to the cinema when prices are cheaper and there's not much else to do. Of course in good weather, options are much less limited, so a cinema trip might be pushed down the list of things to do.
