Would we call Aladdin's UK performance a breakout? Because in Korea, it's having a breakout. And seems like Japan is also heading that way judging by the numbers.

well what do you mean by breakout. It's doing really well here, but it's also doing really well in USA. Unless I'm mistaken i think its doing about on par with domestic performance,

Given it’s a live action remake of a popular Disney animated film, Aladdin always had the potential to do well but before its release most were expecting it to disappoint. So the fact it’s holding so well despite intense competition has surprised people.

Dark Phoenix flopped badly, beaten by Aladdin in its 3rd weekend. 

 

Aladdin should pass or be very close to £30m by Sunday.

Amazingly, Aladdin stayed top this weekend ahead of MIB, with £2.9m and a total above £30m. If it weren’t for Toy Story 4 coming out this week it’d almost certainly hit £40m.

 

Toy story 4 pre-sales look very strong. Toy Story 3 is still the biggest animated film of all time here with £74m, next highest being incredible 2 with £56m. 

 

Right now I’d say Toy Story 4 won’t hit those heights, but £50m is possible. As for its opening, I can’t see it missing £10m. Incredibles 2 opened to £9.7m, so  between £10-12m seems likely for TS4. 

 

Pound is obviously much weaker than in 2010 so this won’t get anywhere close to TS3 in $. Maybe a bit more than half.

One big disadvantage that TS4 has is lack of summer weekdays. It’s opening a month away from school holidays which is unusual for big Disney tentpoles but The Lion King has that spot this year and that could pull BatB numbers.

That's true. It feels strange to have a summer Pixar movie opening in the UK and the US simultaneously, in fact I think it's the first time since the studio's inception that this has happened. TLK's release date has definitely facilitated it though, therefore TS4 will be an interesting one to track.

Not releasing TS4 closer to the school holidays will definitely hurt it a bit. Not that I care as we got it at the same time as the US and the movie is magnificent.

Also the good weather today seems to be impacting BO a bit, I don’t think TS4 is teaching its full potential. Can’t see it topping £10m, although don’t really have a clue on what level it’s performing right now. There are so many showtimes, one every 20 minutes in places so it’s not filling up shows which may make it look like it’s not doing as well.

What I’ve been observing too. Shows in my multiplex seem to be half to two thirds full on average with constant screenings.  Seems to be doing the equivalent to what it’s doing in the states.

$15 million opening for TS4 compares favourably with the $32.7 million 7 day opening of TS3. Especially when you factor in the then exchange rate that would have made that 7 day around $26 million. Plus the extra four days were summer school holidays. 

 

Off to a great start. Expect a great hold next weekend.

Excellent start, better than expected, around £11.8m. 

 

A good comparison for this could be Minions. That too opened at the end of June, with an £11.6m 3 day, and ended with around £46.5m. Minions faced Inside Out and Ant Man during the summer, so quite a bit smaller than the double whammy of Spider-Man and The Lion King that TS4 will be battling against. 

 

Still, we’ll see how close it can get to £50m.

TS4 had the highest ever 3-day animated opening.
