Star wars was definitely crazier around here, that was selling out up to midnight, and even when I saw it in IMAX at 3am on the Friday night/Saturday morning, there were still a good 30/40 people there. That said, I can certainly see a good £4m+ today, and around the same tomorrow. 

Which is incredible. A month ago, around £6-7m would have been the high end for the entire opening.

Excellent for Deadpool. Second highest February without previews after Fifty Shades. I imagine it'll do similar total numbers to The Hangover part II and Inbetweeners 2, might be tricky to beat Inbetweeners final total with Grimsby in two weeks. i wonder if this date wasn't already crowded if it might have gone higher. 

 

It'll be interesting if BvS can do similar numbers. I'm thinking it'll match TDKR OW

If that Jem number is correct, I'm honoured to have contributed to such a horrifically low opening weekend!

There was a whopping 3 other people there when I saw it on Saturday morning. Unsurprisingly it's getting dumped after Thursday at my local.

I've checked shows past 10pm, and a lot look like they're also gonna sell out. This is crazy. I don't even remember SW selling out the really late shows, but Deadpool is doing it with ease. 22:05 and 22:55 at Westfield Sheperd's Bush are gonna sell out, and Westfield Startford's next available show is at 22:20, which is also looking like a sellout.

 

The Vue in Cambridge has sold out the 23:10 and 23:40 show, and tomorrow it has sold out every single show from 10am to 10:30 pm. Madness.

I know this is a few days late, but I just wanna flag this up to you for future reference, about the Cambridge Vue. (I live in Cambridge)

 

Due to the low attendance that Vue Cambridge gets, they recently upgraded all their seats to huge leather VIP recliners with tons of space, as a result their number of seats in each screen decreased by ~70%. Vast majority of shows, for every single film, sell out as a result of only having 40 seats in each screen.

I don't know how many other sites Vue has done this to, but a sellout at Vue Cambridge means nothing since they got rid of most of their seats.

 

Their screen plans now look like this:

 

76e0d77e4aca9581e3812b13cfd9a805.png

 

6 of their 8 screens have exactly that layout, each with 40 seats. The other two screens are bigger but still have a very small number of seats compared to most big screens. (96 and 127 seats, respectively)

Needless to say, they have tons and tons of sellouts. I remember trying to book a ticket for In the Heart of the Sea two weeks after release, and every show was sold out. lol :P 

 

The business strategy was basically to take huge losses on major, popular films, while making smaller films, and late shows, more popular. I really doubt it makes them an increased profit but it is a strategy Vue is experimenting with at one of its lowest-performing (therefore lowest-risk) sites. So when you see two dozen sellouts at that site, take it with a pinch of salt. :) 

Just thought I should let you know for your tracking.

Grimsby Unlimited showing is not looking very busy, should that be a concern? I kinda figured the film is going to be a big hit.

 

I really thought PPZ was gonna do decently, I heard so many people talking about it, but £0.36M weekend is abysmal, even worse than its US performance.

I don't get what happened with Alvin suddenly blowing up, it's not like the last one was all that popular compared to the first two. Then again, I couldn't explain why Hotel Transylvania 2 grew so much either.

Alvin will be close to £15m by Sunday, which is what the last one made in its entire run. That's crazy. It is half term though, and that and Goosebumps are all that are showing for kids right now.

 

Insane for Deadpool. Should pass £25m ($36m) by Sunday or Monday.
