UK Box Office Thread: Endgame breaks all opening records with astonishing £43.4m ($56m)!!

Recommended Posts

Saw Fast 7 last Monday at the BFI IMAX (preview event). Forgot how amazing the screen and sound is there...

 

Anyway, very entertaining film and probably the last in the series and has a great tribute to Paul Walker so should be HUGE!

Universal isn't going to let Fast and Furious go just yet. I personally think two more films then they'll call it a day.

Donna Langley (Uni boss) mentioned F&F should go at least until F&F10.

How's things looking for you guys on fast? It was rammed when I was in Crawley today, and my local in Eastbourne has sold out the rest of the day. Saw a few sell outs for Home in Crawley today as well.

Wait that is 5.7M pounds for one day. That must be biggest OD for any movie barring Skyfall?

Not even close. Twilight and Harry Potter routinely beat that, but it's still a ridiculously big number.

Disney’s Cinderella and Fox’s Home prosper over the Easter weekend with minimal drops to reach $16.6m (£11.2m) and $22.5m (£15.14m), respectively.

 

UNIVERSAL

Revving into top spot on debut, Universal’s Fast & Furious 7 scored a tremendous $18.9m (£12.7m) bow from its 534 sites.

The debut marks the second biggest of the year, behind stablemate Fifty Shades of Grey, and also means Fast & Furious 7 recorded the biggest opening of the series by some distance, ahead of Fast & Furious 6’s $12.9m (£8.7m).

Including Easter Monday [April 6], Fast & Furious 7 has already amassed $23.2m (£15.6m), meaning it has already overtaken the entire lifetime runs of The Fast and the Furious2 Fast 2 FuriousThe Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Fast & Furious.

Fast & Furious 6’s record of being the highest grossing outing of the series to date with $37.6m (£25.3m) won’t be standing for much longer.

Also for Universal, Seventh Son fell heavily in its second weekend to take just $114,000 (£76,532) for $1.2m (£819,216), while Fifty Shades of Grey has now reached $51.6m (£34.76m).

DISNEY

Last week’s belle of the ball Cinderella fell a slim 23% with a second weekend of $4.4m (£2.96m) as it dropped to second.

Disney’s live action remake is now up to $16.6m (£11.2m) after 11 days in play and will hope to continue to enjoy strong returns over the school holidays as it attempts to track down Oz the Great and Powerful ($22.8m/£15.4m) and Maleficent ($30.3m/£20.4m).

FOX

With a remarkable fall of just 9% in its third weekend,Home took a further $3.5m (£2.4m) as it charted third.

Including Monday, Fox’s animation is up to a terrific $22.5m (£15.14m) and shows little sign of slowing down, putting it in a strong position to challenge the likes ofMadagascar ($33.7m/£22.65m) and Shark Tale ($34.3m/£23.05m) in the coming weeks.

Also for Fox, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has grossed $22.4m (£15.09m) after taking $321,000 (£215,933) over the four-day weekend, while Kingsman: The Secret Service has now hit $24.3m (£16.33m).

PARAMOUNT

The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water dropped 29% (excluding previews) on its way to a second weekend of $1.7m (£1.12m).

Including Monday, Paramount’s sequel has now crossed the £5m mark and stands at $7.6m (£5.1m). It will shortly surpass The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie’s $8.3m (£5.6m) UK result.

Falling over 50% in its third weekend, eOne’s The Divergent Series: Insurgent grossed a further $879,000 (£592,349) and has now taken $10.3m (£6.9m) as of Monday.

It has now overtaken its predecessor’s $9.8m (£6.6m) result.

Overall, the film has taken $459,000 (£308,456) when its one-off preview screenings last December are included, and the result marks a strong continuation of the success of the 2001 re-release which became BFI Distribution’s most successful release of all time.

CURZON FILM WORLD

Damn. Over £15m 4 day, £40m is a possibility now. Amazing how this franchise has grown.

Great for Cinderella and Home too.

Amazing for Fast 7?

 

TA made 80 million there?

 

Is that a reachable goal or will it decrease or increase?

Pound has lost about 10% but Avengers was not Uber big. So I see some growth possible. I think it can stay flat in US $ in UK. Range should be £50m-£60m. So somewhere between $75m-$90m gross.

Yeah, £60m could definitely happen I think, so should do at least $80-90m.

Can't see more than £50m myself, even if I am super hyped for it.

Why?
