Fantastic weekend for all films.

 

TLK will pass £50m with ease and probably £60m too. 

 

TS4 is also having some great late legs and could end up getting close to the £60m mark too.

 

Spiderman Far From Home should also become the highest grossing SM movie.

where spiderman will end in $ ?

Not seen anything on Hobbs and Shaw yet... Dunno if I missed the reactions. Movie looks incredibly over the top, stupid and insane, but can it be THAT bad? As I said, I'd be ok with Crawl... Fingers crossed it's a decent movie regardless. 

I've never actually regretted seeing any of the Secret screenings, even though I didn't enjoy them all.

Indeed it was crawl i was right, glad i couldn't make it to the cinema in the end.

Why does Andre Rieu have a grip on every single old person in this country?

 

Always nice to see live events make it into the top 10 box office but still... that guy has like some magic powers.

I couldn't care less about seeing Crawl before release, it's going wide in a few weeks so happy to watch it then. 

 

Always find it amusing when people walk out, especially when they have just bought £20 of popcorn and nachos.

 

I mean up to you if you don't want to watch the film but PLEASE LEAVE AT THE BBFC LOGO. hoards of people walked out in Blinded By The Light for the first several minutes of the film and it rather ruins the start.

I do find it strange that people keep booking Secret screenings and walking out. I mean... I've not liked every single of the movies screened, but to walk out after the first couple of minutes, or as soon as a title comes up is silly to me. Especially if it's because you had certain expectations. Like Deadpool when it was Triple 9, or Into The Heart of the Sea instead of The Force Awakens... Those were NEVER going to happen. Cineworld isn't going to get a bloody exclusive preview of friggin Endgame or something, two weeks before release, to be viewed quite wide. It's always going to be a smaller movie or something hat's already opened in the States/played festivals or something.

 

I remember people walking out of Green Book! The movie was one of he Oscar front runners and I expect people that book unlimited screenings to have at least some kind of appreciation for cinema and be familiar with a movie like that and want to give it a try...

Yes i agree, same thing with people thinking it would be Ready Player One instead of Book Club (can't remember if this was cineworld or somewhere else). You hear a collective moan.

People thought Blinded by the Light would be the Lion King... fkin ridiculous.

The Star Wars one was funny, even an idiot would know you're not gonna see Star Wars before the rest of the world.

 

That being said, a lot of people aren't as clued up and don't know that it's opened in the US already, and Cineworld HAS put on some seriously big films, so I can understand why the less-informed people could think they are gonna get early access to something big.

 

And i do understand why some people leave. If popping into the cinema to see if it's a film you want to see or not, if thats not inconvenient to you (you live near the cinema and its just 15 minutes out of your evening) then fair enough. 

 

Also - Unlimited (not secret) screenings have had some proper decent releases early before America. (i can't remember  which off the top of my head)

I worked at Cineworld when they had the In The Heart of the Sea mystery screening. Having ingested the film and set up the playlist the day before, I knew what it was, so it was kind of hilarious to see so many people come in that night wearing Star Wars shirts and Jedi themed clothing expecting it to be TFA...the reaction at the BBFC card was spectacular.

Some films like Green Book dont really need to be watched in an uncomfortable cinema though, of mine turned out to be green book I'd leave to. The film was great but it's the sort of film I'd rather watch on my sofa.

 

The last screening I went to turned out to be Dawn of the apes, was good

Hahaha, amazing. I worked in a cinema that had a refund policy if you leave the secret screening in the first 10 minutes which I think was far too generous...

There’s a real glut of kids films in UK cinemas just now. 

 

Thankfully there’s more varied choices on the horizon.

I was pleasantly surprised, I think that’s the point of Secret Screenings, to give films a chance that you wouldn’t normally consider. 

 

Hence why it’s exclusive to Cineworld unlimited card holders, people who generally go the cinema a lot and would rather experience a film on the big screen instead of the sofa.

We really need new films. 

 

I’ve actually booked Lion King because I want to go to the cinema and nothing new is showing.

I got very close to doing the same. There's only been like 1 film coming out a week in my local cinema at least, I guess studios were just afraid of Lion King. 

I have no intention of watching Lion King but yesterday I wanted to go to the cinema but there was nothing else new out. Very almost booked the ticket.

 

This weekend has blinded by the light but i've already seen it. And a teen romance +that awful looking racing in the rain film.
