$3.4m OD Tuesday for Spiderman. Around £2.7m.

 

Very good for a Tuesday non-holiday. 70% above Homecoming. Sets it up nicely for £15m+ 6 day.

U.K. Box Office (July 5-7)*

 

1. Spider-Man: Far From Home - £8.3 million (£14.1 million)

2. Toy Story 4 - £5.5 million (£36 million)

3. Yesterday - £1.6 million (£5.6 million)

 

Midsommar did £0.64 million over the weekend, taking it to nearly £0.81 million. 

 

FFH off to a flyer and looks in good stead to take out Spidey 2 (2004) which did £33.6 million (the highest gross of the Spidey movies)

 

TS4 down just 34% and should easily surpass £50 million now, with the school holidays just two weeks away. 

 

Aladdin did £0.43 million for £34.6 million. 

 

Yesterday fell just 21% to £1.6 million and a £5.6 million in 10 days. This one will play and play.

So fell a bit short of £15m in the end. Still a great opening and has a shot at becoming highest grossing SM movie. 

 

Good hold for TS4, if it weren’t for Lion King I’d say £50m would almost certainly happen. Should at least get to £45m and it has a decent shot at £50m still. It will have topped £40m by Sunday and most schools break up for summer next week.

Of course. These movies only make so much money because of him.

I'm doubting he'll come back for a third though. It's more likely he'll do a fifth series of Blackadder, which is about as likely to happen as Bond tanking here.

Expecting a pretty lackluster weekend coming up. Immortals may flop, same for The Rum Diary. Arthur Christmas should be able to top £2m though for number 1.Things kick off when Twilight hits next week. Expecting £12m+, staying in line with the previous installment.

Ooh SpiderMan only £600k ahead of Toy Story this weekend. Wonder if they’ll switch positions this week.

Nice for Annabelle. Decent total for Midsommar too considering how strange it is. 

 

Jaws and Matrix re-releases pointless.

From screendaily:

 

Today’s GBP to USD conversion rate: 1.25

Rank Film  (Distributor) Three-day gross (July 12-14) Total gross to date  Week
1 Spider-Man: Far From Home (Sony Pictures) £4.4m £22.6m 2
Toy Story 4 (Disney) £3.8m £42.6m 4
3 Annabelle Comes Home (Warner Bros) £1.5m £2.2m 1
Yesterday (Universal) £1.1m £8.1m 3
5 Aladdin (Disney) £360,000 £35.2m 8

Sony Pictures

Spider-Man: Far From Home held onto its position at the top of the UK box office chart in its second weekend, dropping 48% on its opening weekend with £4.4m taking it to £22.6m so far.

Drops of 40-50% were consistent across the chart as UK audiences were spoilt for entertainment choices this weekend, with a trio of major sports events on these shores, in the form of the Cricket World Cup final (featuring and won by England), the Wimbledon tennis finals, and the British GP.

Far From Home is already well on its way to challenging the previous best-performing titles in the Spider-Man franchise, which are Spider-Man 3 (£33.6m) and Spider-Man: Homecoming (£30.7m).

Men In Black: International is up to £6.5m from its UK run.

Disney

The UK box office 1-2 was a repeat of last weekend, with Toy Story 4 also holding its position in the chart. The film fell 32% on its last session with £3.8m taking it to £42.6m to date. The release is now less than £2m shy of Toy Story 2 (£44.3m), though it won’t catch up with Toy Story 3 (£74.1m).

Aladdin was down just 19% this weekend, adding £360,000 for £35.2m. Avengers: Endgame took a further £21,000 and is on £88.6m.

Warner Bros

Horror threequel Annabelle Comes Home opened with a £1.5m weekend, placing it third in the chart. That result came from 528 sites for an average of £2,841. Including previews, the film is on £2.2m.

That’s a low for the franchise (which is a spin-off from The Conjuring series), behind Annabelle, which opened with £1.9m in October 2014, ending on £7.5m. and 2017’s Annabelle: Creation, which opened on £2m and ended on £8.3m.

Back in cinemas this weekend to celebrate the film’s 20th anniversary, The Matrix took £163,000 from 360 sites.

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters is on £6.9m, while Pokemon: Detective Pikachu is on £13.5m.

Universal

Yesterday added £1.1m in its third week, a 34% drop, which takes it to £8.1m to date.

The Dead Don’t Die, Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy with Adam Driver and Bill Murray which opened Cannes this year, opened 11th in the chart this weekend, taking £192,882. Despite the soft total, this tops the directors’ recent efforts Only Lovers Left Alive (£123,989) and Paterson (£173,790).

The Secret Life Of Pets 2 added £117,003 and is up to £18.5m.

TLK is the way it misses 60m pounds, it will need a good hold again TLK to have a shot at 60m pounds I think.

£50m+ is basically guaranteed now for TS4. Another huge success.

 

The Lion King pre-sales are looking insane, a £14m+ opening weekend wouldn’t surprise me. At mininmum it should clear £12m.

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.
