When we get weekly numbers - worth noting that most schools have still been in this last week, which will make it harder to compare to TFA

 

Pitch Perfect and Jumanji have looked pretty neck and neck on their first two days. Ferdinand will have a solid opening number considering its EIGHT days of previews, but it's still being affected by Paddington 2 for sure. 

Paddington is still doing big business, saw quite a few sellouts for it yesterday. £40m seems guaranteed.

There is officially nothing on for adults at my local Cineworld. Definitely catering only to families this Christmas.

 

Star Wars, Pitch Perfect, Jumanji, Ferdinand, Daddy’s Home 2 and Paddington 2.

TLD is up to $67.4m as of Sunday (£50.5m), which means a second weekend of just below £10m and a drop of just over 50% from the 3-day. It would have had a very big fall today due to Christmas Eve and tomorrow cinemas are closed. 

 

I expect by the 2nd January when work resumes for most people, TLJ should be close to the £70m mark. Most schools are still on holiday until the 8th so it should maintain large weekday business until then.

 

A total of around £85m ($115m) seems reasonable right now. Still huge, and very impressive but not quite the monster TFA was. Although no one expected a repeat of that.

Huge Wednesday for TLJ, $4.9m for a total of $75.8m. Hopefully it's close to $80m going into the long weekend. After Monday, it should comfortably be past $90m, and will probably hit $100m some time late next week.

Not sure but it's probably doing quite well too.

How's TLJ playing in the UK, BTW?  Both at a box office and punter reaction?

 

I know that it won't sniff TFA, but no one expected it to.  But how's it doing via expectations is more or less what I'm wondering. :)

TLJ is up to $80.6m now, so might even be nearer $95m after the 4 day weekend. 

 

Jumaniji is pulling in good numbers too. From deadline: Highlights from this week include the UK adding $2.3M on Thursday (its best day which falls in the 2nd week of play). The cume there is $17m.

 

Looks like it will be doing north of $30m.

Well it looks packed today, and next week schools are still off, so $35-40m seems quite likely.

Baywatch actually outgrossed it! That film actually did a lot better compared to the US. 

 

Pirates 5 actually had good legs considering it had a low OW, same with Wonder Woman. The biggest surprise of this year wasn't Dunkirk but IT, who'd thought a horror film would outgross Spider-Man and Thor.

I disagree. Hype for it was huge whereas dunkirk despite being UK centric was a big surprise and gad great legs

Yeah, Dunkirk being that huge over here was a massive surprise. Pleasant one. 

 

IT’s performance round the world was astonishing.

Deadline wrote that the UK total is already over 90M. Its nice to see TLJ passing 100M $ in the UK.
