Damn, you're right. Just looked at my local CIneworld. Next 5 2D shows are 90-95% sold. The 22.20 is the only one with just a handful of seats sold, but at this rate, I do expect that to play at least half-full. 19.40 IMAX is maybe 40%, but again, expect that to fill up.

O2 Cineworld Superscreen doing well, Leicester Square IMAX is almost full for tonight, with most of the other shows already sold out... Glasgow Renfrew St. playing almost at capacity too...

 

Yeah, this is more like an opening weekend than a second one. I'd be shocked if it dropped more than 30%.

Yep. All the key cinemas in London are virtually sold out until at least 9/10pm. Crawley cineworld is sold out all 7 shows until the 9:50pm show which will probably end up filling up anyway due to spillover.

Hopefully it increases to £10m with actuals. I’d say this is the most impressive second weekend ever at the UK BO. It’s unprecedented for a film such as this without any holidays/Christmas to drop only 20%, and even more so for a film that opened as big as Joker did. 


The fact this has already hit the £30m mark is insane. As expected, weekdays were huge, £7.6m. Another £4.5m Mon-Thu, and a £5.5m 3rd weekend (which would be a 44% drop) would put this at £40m by next Sunday. So £50m is definitely within reach as things stand.

Ah, if the exchange rate were half-decent. Oh, to think back on the old days of late 2015... I was in New York pretty much 4 years ago to the day, and I was able to buy a car with a tenner I found in my jacket pocket.

Yeah the ER is diabolical, it makes passing even $50m a challenge these days. Joker would have made $80m with 2015’s exchange rate.

Looking around, Joker is again selling out shows tonight in various London locations. Looks like weekday business will be abnormally strong once more, so this could be in the mid 30s going into the weekend.

Stratford, Vue London and Islington which have been selling out constantly since opening were packed again tonight. Obviously not everywhere is as full.

Vue also has their cheap Mondays so it may explain why their cinemas sell really well on a Monday but not others chains. Picturehouse is the same with a couple of exceptions.

I was simply making observations. Regardless of ticket price (and it hasn’t only been performing well on cheap Monday’s) the Joker has been performing exceptionally well for a film released at this time of year.  For comparison, it made only £1m less than TDKR’s first Mon-Thu, and that opened to nearly £15m during summer. It should have another strong Mon-Thu.

And, to be fair, after that weekend hold, a slightly more normal weekdays figure wouldn't be shocking, especially if the weekend ends up strong again.

Yeah Vue everywhere pretty much gives big Monday discounts. Cambridge was 5 pounds on Monday.

 

Meerkat movies was Tuesday and Wednesday I think?

Just posted this in the Joker OS thread - FWIW my showing in Dublin was 100% full. A 6pm showing on a Tuesday in an arthouse cinema (Light House).

 

Can't see this missing £50m. Maybe even £60m if it keeps holding. My partner (who hates anything even remotely sci-fi/fantasy/comic book related) wants to see this. Feels like a.proper crossover event here
