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

Recommended Posts

Amazing weekend for Dory, it will have no problem crossing £40m now. Should be over £35m easily by the end of the bank holiday weekend, with another week of holidays to go after that. £42-45m is where it looks to be heading at the moment. 

 

Excellent for SS too, it should cross £30m with ease, probably ending around £35m, which is a huge success, and very near the trio of Civil War, BvS and Deadpool, which all made around £37m. 

 

BFG is still going strong, it'll be a tight one for the £30m mark. If it misses it, I'll be by a million at the most. Another amazing run. 

 

Pets looks to end at £35m, or just below. It's had an incredibly long run.

 

Bourne has slyly had a great run, will pass £20m this week, looks to end just under Ultimatum as the 2nd highest of the series. 

 

Apart from Lights Out, openers were poor. Glad Dravid Brent flopped.

I wouldn't be surprised if Dory remains number 1 this weekend. 

 

SS has had decent legs, the family films have done really well this summer. The BFG have had solid legs even considering the family competition from Dory and Pets

Suicide Squad might end up with better legs than Deadpool, BvS and Civil War no? Bad WOM lol.

Saturation release for Popstar my arse, I've gotta drive 50 miles to see it! 

 

Im surprised it's getting released at all, it'll be one and done IMO

 

As summer comes to an end, it'll be interesting what'll do well in September. I think Bridget Jones will be a solid hit but I'm thinking The Magnificent Seven will do very well, maybe not huge numbers but £3-4m wouldn't surprise me

Why surprised? We get virtually everything that releases in the states, even if it takes a while, like Keanu last month as an example.

Given that it bombed in the US, I thought Universal would pull its release but guess they think they can make money even if it's a meagre amount

Uk is only INTL getting it at this stage, sometimes there has to be some commitment to release in X countries and/or if Theatrical don't think its  viable but   Home Ent and/or TV think some form of theatrical release will add in selling extra units or upping price for TV sale then if that argument can be justified they will give it some form of theatre release and then look later if the Theatrical release did anything to help the other revenue streams.

It's been so hot all week here, temps easily above 30, and clear blue sky today, not good for cinemas. This weekend looks a bit more unsettled, but next week it looks warm and dry again, which has been the story all month. Dory has had an uphill battle, but it's still doing very well. If it had been a rainy August, it'd probably be over £40m already.

Going to see Bad Moms tonight at 8pm, sold out.

 

The Purge: Election Year is busy too, despite the good weather.

I think Dory probably will retain number 1 but I can see Bad Moms debuting in second place. SS will hit £30m this weekend for sure, if it hasn't done so already. 

 

Apart from Kubo, there isn't any major competition kids wise until Storks and Trolls in October so Dory will chug along to £40m.

As expected, Finding Dory is now the biggest animation of the year in the UK with £34.3m to date.

The Purge will underperform. I found my sisters boyfriend watching a perfect copy of it yesterday, and that's been available for weeks. Terrible move delaying it imo.

Local cinema was so busy tonight.

 

Bad Moms was hysterical, got a huge reaction from the sold out audience.

Big 50% drop for Dory, obviously good weather has had an impact, as bank holiday usually sees very small decreases or even increases.

Dory still has one more week of holidays so I think £40m is doable by next week or the week after as Kubo won't make much of a dent.

 

Wonder if SS hit £30m this weekend?

Sausage Party looks ridiculous tomorrow, cinema I'm going to has sold out 16:30, and the 20:00 I'm going to is rammed!
