Wow, huge for Bridget Jones!

 

It was always going to be successful but clearly it resonates with UK audiences which is no surprise really, only Bond, LOTR/Hobbit  and Potter have done bigger numbers OW

Weekday business should be huge for Bridget Jones. Wouldn't surprise me if it made over £5m Mon-Thu. By Sunday I expect it'll be already at £17-18m.

£2.0 million opening for Magnificent Seven. Solid start, on par with the US weekend. 

 

Considering Bridget Jones is dominating, Mag 7 did well

Bridget Jones will be nearing £30m already by Sunday, probably £28-29m, and will easily remain number 1. Could make a run for £40m, which would be an incredible result, but anything above £35m is much higher than most would have expected.

 

Dory's strong legs continue, should end up in the £42-43m range.

 

Not sure how this weeks openers will do, I don't expect too well, but Deepwater Horizon could post decent numbers, as it occupies IMAX screens.

Admissions update for this year:

 

Quote

August's admissions were 18.1m, up 26% from 2015 and August's box office was £134.1m, up 28% from 2015.

 

Very impressive.

 

Quote

Year to date admissions are 113.8m, which is up 0.4% from 2015. That's a pretty great result.

 

Surprising, but we've had a huge number of films top £30m this year. I imagine September will be well up on last year too, however as we get into November and December, admissions may start to trail due to a lack of Spectre and SW7. There will be big hits, but not monsters like these two films were (1st and 3rd biggest of all time).

I hope the "From J.K. Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter" thing from the newest trailer will help with the hype of FB. That is, if there was anyone who did not know this takes place in the same universe.

October won't be as big as last year but there likely will be solid hits with The Girl on the Train, Inferno, Trolls and Doctor Strange. 

 

I think this year there hasn't been films dominating like last year but lots of £30m+ films and two £40m+ films
