Of course they can! 

 

Cinemas have to pay to show them.

A one off show of a re-release is better value than an empty show of a movie that's a month old.

No Rerelease loses money. The PTA isn't as bad as you think though when you extrapolate it. Only one showing per cinema for the whole weekend means it was fairly busy. I'm seeing The Matrix in 4DX tonight and had to go for the front row. 

The Matrix has been sold out at my local over the last few nights on a mid size screen, so much so that they’ve been considering putting on the sequels according to a friend who works there.

Lion King is doing insane business tonight. Like Avengers level. Expect a huge opening.

Friday’s key openers were led by the UK’s $6.5M which is the biggest launch day for a Disney-branded live-action film ever. It’s the 2nd highest opening day of 2019 behind only Disney/Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame

 

 

$6.5m is about £5.2m. Probably sets it up for an opening weekend of around £17m. Most schools have broken up for summer now so summer weekdays will set in.

The fact it’s summer holidays will probably limit how high this can go as kids can just go now during the week. Even though BatB has an OD over £1m below, I can’t see TLK topping its £19.7m OW. Still a fantastic opening though.

£15.9m OW which is great although lower than Beauty and the Beast. Does suggest Saturday and Sunday were flat or only had modest increases.

Likely as business will be much more spread over the summer compared to BatB which opened during term time. It probably won’t reach the heights of BatB though. Could be a close one between TLK and TS4 (which looks set to get to around the £55m mark).

Let’s hope TS4 wins that battle! 

 

But yeah, no denying a tremendous opening for Lion King

Lion King significantly up from estimates again, £16.7m opening. 

 

TS4 had a fantastic 29% drop and is at £47.3m.

 

Just a note, there is a heatwave this week with temps possibly breaking the all time record here. Not sure if this will impact the  BO in a good or bad way as people may actually want to escape the heat. 

 

Pray for me and my commute on the non-air conditioned tube. 😓

Yeah, fuck that noise. It was bad enough on the tube last week.

No A/C on the tube? Sounds brutal.

It is. Temps are forecast to potentially get up to 38c this week (100f), and temps on the tube are much higher than that. It’s actually disgusting down there.

The subway stations in NY are so hot in the summer that it's such a relief to get into the air-conditioned cars once they arrive. 

 

I can't imagine having to endure an entire commute like that.

Yes, though BOM's theater count accuracy looks a tad iffy.   428k avg.  :lol:
