Spider Man under Toy Story, that was quick. 

 

Great weekend! 

 

It’s absolutely roasting here today. 

 

Nothing out that I fancy seeing anyway.

For once, we agree. Nothing appealing on the horizon for another couple of weeks.

Hobbs and Shaw will do well but probably £4-5m OW tops, I think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood could do solid business when that comes out in three weeks.

Return to cooler weather should mean soft drops this weekend. Wouldn’t be surprised if TLK has a £10m 2nd weekend.

Casnio Royole's re-release have had a leggy run since its opening! This past week is not exception 

Just so you're aware - it is not a "re-release". It's a theatrical event called Secret Cinema. It's run every summer. Tickets are around $100 each. They take a beloved film and build a venue, decorate it like the film, have actors dressed up, similar to a theme park - and they display the film.

They've done star wars, back to the future, blade runner, some others.

 

if you're interested, this may give you an idea:

Then i assume casino royale will linger in the chart longer than usual in that case. This concept is cool, and prove that theater willing to try new approach to preserve movie-going experience.

 

Imagine watching Titanic in this event!

yeah they have it go for like 2 months or so I think, and usually, it's in the top 10 box office every single weekend.

 

Titanic would be awesome. especially as you have to dress up! I would probably go.

 

I'm just reading their website at the moment and I didn't realise:

Quote

After registering, you’ll be given a bespoke character to dress as.

 

It is very interactive.

Wow, that's a very cool event! Never heard of something like that. $100 is very much but I assume expense is very high too (you probably don't know how much it cost the cinema?).

That would be a great thing for Germany too, but I suppose something like that will never be done here... Thanks for the insight, I always thought that it'd be a rerelease too :D

Their website is quite confusing with tickets, it looks like they are £50 mid-week and £80 on the weekend.

 

You get a lot for your money. You spend an entire evening there and watch the film. They describe it as:

Quote

Spend your evening sipping martinis while scoping out the casino or unravel the dark underworld of the most infamous criminal organisations. Witness the most memorable moments spill out of the screen and unfold around you as the night culminates in a unique screening of Casino Royale.

Have tickets for a Secret Unlimited Screening tonight. Hmmm....

Jeez, could you imagine? I'd fucking riot.

I am quite skeptical about what it might be. Considering it just opened in the States, hoping for Once Upon A Time in Hollywood. Another option might be Good Boys, since that opened a while ago to press (SXSW, I think?). I honestly can't think what else it could be...

It won't be Once Upon A Time in Hollywood since that's an 18 and the secret screening is 15 maximum.

think most likely is Crawl probably?

Occasionally it's a big film... Hobbs & Shaw???

 

I have my ticket booked too although I'm going out for dinner with friends first so may not make it in time.

Hobbs and Shaw is opening Thursday and they've had presales open for ages (hell, I have my tickets) - they won't do that. Not to mention, they won't show a big movie unless it's premiered somewhere before (spoilers, reviews, etc - the studios won't allow that).

Also, I get your point on the rating; good shout, actually, though the standard classification is always 15, to not give anything away - and they've had The Incredibles 2, for example, so I don't think it's outright impossible to go the other way for once (though yes, unlikely)

Crawl wouldn't be too bad, actually... I've stayed through all of them in the past, though Blinded by the Light pushed me to my limits at times. It was just such a flat, uninspired film.

For some reason I thought they showed incredibles 2 before it came out in USA but you're right.

And pretty sure Hobbs and Shaw has already had premiere and social media reactions right? 

 

Yes it is impossible for them to go the other way on the age rating. It would be illegal for Cineworld to admit 16 year olds into the screening of an 18 rated film, and they would be in SERIOUS trouble. It is impossible to be ouatihollywood.

 

I thought Blinded by the Light was good. Havent been to another screening in a while.

Not seen anything on Hobbs and Shaw yet... Dunno if I missed the reactions. Movie looks incredibly over the top, stupid and insane, but can it be THAT bad? As I said, I'd be ok with Crawl... Fingers crossed it's a decent movie regardless. 

I've never actually regretted seeing any of the Secret screenings, even though I didn't enjoy them all.

Movie's usually have some theme of secrecy, so Good Boys feels like a good shout

Quote

Today’s GBP to USD conversion rate: 1.23

Further distributor results to come…

Disney

The Lion King posted a second straight £10m+ weekend, dropping 36% compared to its opening session, to £10.6m. Including strong mid-weeks, the film is already up to an impressive £36.8m after 10 days.

It is another smash hit for Disney, already placing fourth in the highest-grossing films of the year, overtaking Aladdin (which is up to £36m) after just two weeks. The top five is now composed entirely of Disney titles: Avengers: Endgame, Toy Story 4, Captain Marvel, The Lion King and Aladdin.

This weekend, Toy Story 4 fell a slender 8% with £2.5m, taking it to £51.6m to date. It is now the third biggest animation ever in the UK and the second film this year to cross £50m after Avengers: Endgame. The Lion King will become the third within a couple of weeks. In 2018, five titles crossed the £50m mark, and 2019 has several candidates to come.

Overall, Disney dominated the UK box office weekend, with the studio’s releases representing 65% of total business.

Sony Pictures

Spider-Man: Far From Home added £1.7m, down a steady 27% on last weekend, and is now up to £30.6m.

The film will pass Spider-Man: Homecoming’s £30.7m this week to be the second highest grossing entry in the franchise behind Spider-Man 3 on £33.6m.

Deon Taylor’s horror The Intruder opened to £51,000 from 131 screens this weekend for a tepid site average of £389.

Men In Black: International is up to £6.7m from its UK run.

Universal

Yesterday posted a solid 21% drop in its fifth weekend, taking £609,258 for £11.1m to date. The film has also been a counter-programming hit in the US.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2 added £53,444 for £18.8m, while The Dead Don’t Die took £41,005 for £507,577 after three weekends.

Altitude

Horrible Histories: The Movie - Rotten Romans, based on the much-loved children’s book and TV series, opened with £584,049 from 527 sites for a decent average of £1,108. Including previews, its cume stands on £609,286.

That is not a bad start for the first entry in the planned franchise, though UK mini-studio Altitude looks to have made a decent-sized bet on the film, including making it the company’s widest release, so will be hoping to do more business in the coming weeks.

Fellow UK indie title Fisherman’s Friends had a similarly wide release earlier this year, grossing £1.2m from 502 screens on its opening weekend. However, Horrible Histories did face stiff competition for family audiences this weekend, particularly from Disney titles The Lion King, Toy Story 4 and Aladdin, while Lionsgate’s The Queen’s Corgi is also still in cinemas. Given time, the Altitude release could have a long tail as family releases tend not to be as front-loaded as other genres. However, more competition comes from The Angry Birds Movie 2 (Sony Pictures) and Charming (Blue Finch Film Releasing) next weekend.

Warner Bros

Annabelle Comes Home dropped -36% this weekend, taking £496,172 from 443 locations for £5m to date.

Lionsgate

The Queen’s Corgi added £118,797 and is on £1.6m.

Dogwoof

Marianne & Leonard: Words Of Love, Nick Broomfield’s documentary feature about the relationship between the late singer Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen, opened with £82,067 from 32 cinemas Fri-Sun, an excellent site average of £2,565.

The title also had previews last weekend, which generated £64,212 from 64 sites, and including various other screenings such as festivals the film is at £156,952 cume.

Apollo 11 took £52,000 at the weekend for a total of £1.2m

New Wave

The Chambermaid opened to £12,879 from eight screens this weekend, a good site average of £1,610.

TS4 is the 3rd biggest animated film in local currency after TS3 and I2?

Fantastic weekend for all films.

 

TLK will pass £50m with ease and probably £60m too. 

 

TS4 is also having some great late legs and could end up getting close to the £60m mark too.

 

Spiderman Far From Home should also become the highest grossing SM movie.
