UK Box Office Thread: Frozen II record breaking £15.1m opening, Joker passes TDKR - £57.1m total

That's great! So around £4.5m? CW made £14.4m 3-day, would be incredible if SS matched it.

 

Even if it doesn't though, an OW of £12-13m would be very impressive, and well above expectations.

 

Weather today is amazing too, which will likely hinder it. 

Think Dory might be hurt more by the weather. I suspect that a lot of families are taking a "save this for a rainy day" approach with that one, whereas SS has that "see it now" factor which gives it a high floor in the face of the sunshine.
 

Genuine question - when there's outright heatwave conditions (like we got on the 19th) do cinemas get hurt even more than in standard "lovely weather" like today's, or do they get a boost from people desperately seeking something to do in an air-conditioned space?

Dory's weekend figures don't really matter because it's doing well with weekday figures, we saw this last year with Inside Out where it dropped over 50% on its second weekend but it ended up doing better than most of the August competition

Huge £4.7m opening day for Suicide Squad in the UK, biggest opening Friday ever in August.

Probably about the same really. I don't think people really seek the cinema for air conditioning, but more pubs and bars for cold drinks. As long as it's hot enough to enjoy the outdoors, I don't think it matters 'how' hot it actually is. 

 

I was in Central London today, and it was absolutely heaving everywhere you walked. All restaurants, outdoor areas, parks etc were unbelievably busy. Outdoor activities come above anything else when the weather is nice.

Very impressive OD. I'd say about £4m today, £3.5m tomorrow, £12.2m ($16m) OW.

Third highest August opening including previews but highest three day opening.

Wow. Big drops. Weather must definitely have something to do with it.

SS was insane when I went last night. BFG had its evening show cancelled the provide a 4th for Skwad, which virtually sold out 6pm, 8pm and 8:45pm in 2D, and was 80% full for 3D at 7:45pm.

As we've said, when the weather is good families would rather do something else. Inside Out also fell 50% on its 2nd weekend. Dory will recover with its strong weekdays.

 

The weather cools down this week, but next weeks outlook is looking to be very warm and dry again, so not good for cinemas. Not much rainy weather on the cards in the foreseeable future.

In Scotland it's been pissing down all week. 

 

Hopefully the sun will come her next week and England can get soaked. Even up the numbers a bit lol.

Me and my husband would prefer the Scottish not-summer tbh...

 

Do we have any Scotland-specific numbers for Dory? Could be a good weather control group as it were.

£10.6m SS. Very good, but I see it dropping off BvS style. Doubt it reaches much more than £25m.
