Looks like the IMAX film festival that cineworld are doing next Saturday is going to pay dividends for them. Between the daytime and evening shows of The Martian and the one show of Jurassic World, there are less than 50 seats left out of 1500! Gonna be a fun day.

FOX

Deadpool followed up its outstanding debut with only a 44% drop (excluding previews) as it retained its lead at the UK box office.

Fox’s comic book adaptation sliced its way to a further non-final $8m (£5.7m) for a superb $36.6m (£25.85m) after just 12 days in play. It will shortly become the biggest Marvel outing for Fox, overtaking X-Men: Days Of Future Past which made $38.4m (£27.1m).

In terms of overall superhero outings in the UK, Deadpoolcurrently ranks as the tenth biggest, but it will quickly overtake the likes of Spider-Man 2 ($37.9m/£26.72m),Guardians Of The Galaxy ($40.4m/£28.5m) and Spider-Man ($41.1m/£29.03m).

Achieving as much with a higher certificate than any superhero film to date is a remarkable feat. A strong third weekend hold (with Grimsby the only major competition) is expected and after that we will get a clearer picture of its ceiling.

It was a second straight one-two punch at the UK box office for Fox as Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip boosted 35% (excluding previews) for a strong non-final $5m (£3.54m) for $18.6m (£13.14m) to date.

The Road Chip will soon become the second-biggest outing of the series, ahead of Chipwrecked’s $19.8m (£14m), and stands a great chance of challenging The Squeakquel’s $33.9m (£23.93m) result.

Also for Fox, The Revenant fell only 5% on its way to a $964,000 (£680,202) sixth weekend for $29.8m (£21.04m), while Neerja opened with $151,000 (£106,449) from its 36 sites.

Snoopy And Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie stands at $14m (£9.87m).

WARNER BROS

This week’s highest new entry came in the form of How To Be Single as it charted third with a respectable $2.7m (£1.88m), including $574,000 (£405,000) from Valentine’s Day previews, from its 433 sites.

Warner Bros’ comedy recorded a healthy $6,137 (£4,330) site average as it prospered in a busy market as counter programming. Midweek returns could also be strong given the end of half term.

Also for Warner Bros, action remake Point Break has failed to energise, taking a slim $1.2m (£839,000) after three weeks in play.

SONY

Benefitting from half term, Sony’s Goosebumps boosted 22% on its way to a $1.8m (£1.3m) third weekend for $10.8m (£7.6m) to date.

It’s unlikely, however, to top the $21.6m (£15.23m) result of Gulliver’s Travels, director Rob Letterman’s previous collaboration with Jack Black.

Also for Sony, Chinese box office sensation The Mermaidgot off to a terrific start with $170,000 (£120,000) from its 19 sites, while Hotel Transylvania 2 has now grossed $29.2m (£20.65m) after a school holiday boost.

UNIVERSAL

Rounding off this week’s top five was Universal’s Dad’s Army with a $1.2m (£815,094) third weekend. The big screen adaptation of the beloved sitcom has now marched to $9.7m (£6.87m).

Also for Universal, Ride Along 2 stands at $8.2m (£5.76m) after five weeks in play.

EONE

Charting sixth on its UK debut was eOne’s Triple 9 with a solid but unspectacular $1.2m (£814,482) bow from its 444 sites for a $2,599 (£1,834) site average.

It narrowly missed out on being director John Hillcoat’s best-ever UK opening which remains Lawless’ $1.4m (£973,234) from 410 sites. Triple 9 will hope to connect with an older midweek audience as it attempts to track down Lawless’ $6.1m (£4.3m) result.

Also for eOne, Spotlight has now amassed $6.2m (£4.38m) following a $462,000 (£326,005) fourth weekend, while Freeheld could only manage $18,000 (£12,631) from its 12 sites on debut.

PARAMOUNT

Zoolander 2 fell more than 40% (excluding previews) in its second weekend, adding $1.09m (£770,000) as it fell to seventh.

Paramount’s comedy sequel is now up to $5.7m (£4.01m) and won’t manage to come close to fellow long-awaited sequel Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues which took $20.3m (£14.3m).

Also for Paramount, The Big Short is up to $7.4m (£5.21m) after five weeks in play.

DISNEY

Into its tenth week, Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens added an extra $513,000 (£363,812) for an outstanding $172.4m (£122.32m) to date.

Also for Disney, The Finest Hours was cut adrift on its UK debut as it took a soft $348,000 (£246,768) from its 426 sites, while The Good Dinosaur is now up to $20.9m (£14.81m) following a $197,000 (£140,083) weekend.

STUDIOCANAL

In its second weekend, Studiocanal’s A Bigger Splashtook an additional $279,000 (£197,651) for $1.1m (£748,428) to date.

Also for Studiocanal, Room and Youth have amassed $4.9m (£3.45m) and $1.1m (£793,816), respectively.

DOGWOOF

From its ten sites through Dogwoof, Mavis! posted a $12,000 (£8,350) UK debut including $7,000 (£4,978) in previews.

CURZON ARTIFICIAL EYE

Cannes 2015 title Chronic grossed $9,800 (£6,971) from its 12 sites on its UK bow through Curzon Artificial Eye.

UPCOMING RELEASES

This week sees saturation releases for Sony’s Grimsby(opens Feb 24), Universal’s remake Secret In Their Eyesand Icon Film Distribution’s The Forest.

Vertigo Releasing’s King Jack, Metrodome’s The Propaganda Game and Arrow Films’ The Benefactorare among the films receiving a limited release.

 

Incredible again for Deadpool. It will fly by £30m, though £40m may be a bit of a stretch. It should be able to top IM3's £36m though, which would put in the top 5 superhero films ever outside TDK/TDKR and Avengers 1 and 2. No one would have ever expected that. 

 

Strong half term for family films, Alvin will probably hit $25m. Nice boost for Revenant too, probable due to the baftas. Could get a further boost this week and beyond as the oscars are this weekend, so could still pass The Martian (And WoWS) as the top grossing BP of the year.

 

Decent opening for How to Be Single.

On another note, Pound to dollar just had the biggest one day fall since 2009, ahead of the possible Brexit from the EU. Turbulent times ahead.

Doing some browsing, found that hidden on the cineworld website are double bills of Man of Steel and BvS. No word on ticket sales date though.

The article above doesn't mention it. 

 

IMDb doesn't have a release date for it in the UK.

Well, I don't pay much attention to IMDB, but the FDA have removed it from the schedule, so it currently doesn't have a release date. Up until last week, it was scheduled for release this Friday. It's been pulled at the very last moment and no one is talking about it; I'm not sure what has happened.

Grimsby's doing rather averagely, apparently. 33,000 admissions across DCM Weds night (80% of industry) according to  TomLinay on Twitter - that'll be about a £250k Weds overall, I would guess?
