I disagree. Hype for it was huge whereas dunkirk despite being UK centric was a big surprise and gad great legs

What? Everyone was talking about dunkirk in the weeks running up to release. it was clearly going to be one of the biggest movies of the year.

Any early signs on what to expect for Coco next week?

Coco is out tomorrow. I wouldn't expect a particularly large opening, but perhaps £4-5m or so, which is fairly standard for these types of animations, followed by strong legs.

Ohhh okay makes sense.

 

The Darkest Hour has really strong pre-sales. Given the subject matter, I wouldn't be surprised with a £20m run. Should open above £3m and it's the type of film that would also play well during the week. Plus reviews are great.

Watched Darkest Hour tonight, it's decent and the cinema was packed. I can see this doing well.

We're doing really well with Darkest Hour.

 

Coco is OK but nothing special. Would be surprised if it does anything over £2m on the previews

Impressive for new openers The Darkest Hour and Three Billboards. The former has £20m potential for sure considering it will have very strong midweek business. Three Billboards could very well get into the teens depending on how it fairs through awards season. 

 

Jumanji has has turned into a huge breakout hit. £35m is guaranteed, probbably will end around £37-38m mark. No one saw that coming.

 

Okay preview number for Coco, full opening with previews should be around £5m mark, hopefully legs are strong.

 

SW is starting to fade, but compared to a lot of countries it has had a very good run, will end up near the £85m mark.

no they weren't big but Early Man will probably not be "big" either.

 

I checked BOM and scorch trials opened to $4.3M, not sure how much £££ that was but its an okay number. I am pretty sure it opened on a wednesday if I recall correctly, but even so it's a decent number. Shaun the Sheep opened to $3.2M the same year.

Personally I think Early Man will do pretty decently. It's been marketed heavily and I've seen several trailers for it and advert tie-ins. Also Wallace and Gromit is well loved, so I imagine it'll bring in quite an audience. I'm thinking about £4m opening for it at the moment.

 

Maze Runner however, I'm not sure who actually cares for it anymore. Might say only £2m opening tbh

£4M is not happening in a million years. £2M is more likely and that would be a decent number. That would be similar to the shaun the sheep film which would be great given that it is a new IP whereas Shaun was an existing popular tv show.

You think? From what i was aware, it was a big surprise, hell it even topped all of nolans batman films and it wasnt just the gross that was impressive,  it was the legs. I dont think people were expecting over 50m quid, 20-30m maybe.

The Post is doing very well, would be surprised if it opened below £2.5m. Looks like it will be a strong awards season for the BO.

 

Darkest Hour also looked packed again, will have a soft drop probably under 30%.

 

Coco was much better today than last weekend, with previews it should comfortably come out top.
