That's impossible, a lot of schools were still off this week, and it would have made that amount or more just from the weekend. Must be an error. I expect it to be around £69m.

FF8 £22.9m. Must have had a massive drop. Could actually miss £30m now that Guardians arrives this week. Popularity has definitely dropped since the 7th, but I guess it's the same in most countries besides China and a few others.

Yes it HAS to be an error.

Hey, what's GOTGV2 looking at here?

GotG did pretty well, made almost £30m after opening with £6.4m. GotG 2 opens over the bank holiday weekend so it basically has a 4-day opening. Pre-sales look pretty good, I'd imagine around 12m 4 day, and maybe £35m or so total. I could see it go higher though. 

 

In dollars it'll likely gross around the same as GotG ($47m) due to a much weaker pound.

UK box office: 'Beauty And The Beast' becomes biggest musical ever in UK

24 April, 2017 | By Ian Sandwell

 

 

Further distributor results to come…

(Note - Dollar conversions are based on today’s rates)

UNIVERSAL

Despite a fall of 58% (excluding previews), Fast & Furious 8 remained at the top of the UK box office.

Universal’s latest instalment in the hugely popular series raced to an extra $4.6m (£3.59m) for $29.5m (£23m) after 12 days in play, already making it the third biggest outing of the franchise to date.

It will overtake Fast & Furious 6’s $32.4m (£25.3m), but won’t catch Fast & Furious 7’s final UK result of $49.5m (£38.6m), especially with Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2’s arrival this Friday (April 28).

Also for Universal, Get Out edged closer to the £10m mark as a $337,000 (£263,100) sixth weekend for $12.2m (£9.54m), while The Zookeeper’s Wife was one of several new openers to struggle with a $130,000 (£101,407) debut from its 218 sites.

FOX

The Boss Baby remained in second after dropping 43% with a non-final $2.65m (£2.06m) third weekend.

Fox’s latest DreamWorks Animation outing is now up to a strong $28.6m (£22.26m) and should overtake Trolls ($31.7m/£24.74m) by the end of its run, with another Bank Holiday to take advantage of next week.

Also for Fox, Logan stands at an excellent $30.5m (£23.8m), while Rules Don’t Apply posted a weak non-final UK bow of $60,000 (£47,130) from its 244 sites, averaging only $248 (£193).

DISNEY

Beauty And The Beast has surpassed Mamma Mia to become the biggest musical of all time at the UK box office.

Disney’s live action remake fell 50% as it waltzed to a $1.7m (£1.3m) sixth weekend for a dazzling $88.2m (£68.8m) to date, making it the eighth highest grossing film ever.

LIONSGATE

The week’s highest new entry came in the form of Their Finest as it charted fourth.

Lionsgate’s wartime drama posted a promising $1.1m (£850,000) debut from its 456 sites, marking a site average of $2,391 (£1,864) over a weekend where new releases failed to make much of an impact.

Their Finest’s debut marks director Lone Scherfig’s second biggest UK bow, behind One Day which was bolstered by the fact it was based on a known property.

Also for Lionsgate, Power Rangers has amassed $6.2m (£4.81m).

SONY

Posting the best drop of the weekend, Sony’s Smurfs: The Lost Village fell only 26% as it journeyed to a $421,000 (£328,000) fourth weekend for $5.8m (£4.5m) to date.

WARNER BROS

With a distinctly unmemorable debut, Warner Bros’ Unforgettable could only manage to gross $345,000 (£269,000) from its 365 sites, marking a soft site average of $945 (£737).

Also for Warner Bros, Going In Style pocketed $337,000 (£263,000) for $3.1m (£2.45m) after three weeks in play.

EONE

In its third week, eOne’s Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience took a further $268,000 (£208,970) for $3.8m (£3.02m) to date.

PARAMOUNT

Ghost In The Shell added a non-final $182,000 (£142,000) for $7.1m (£5.53m) after four weeks in play through Paramount.

STUDIOCANAL

Falling 58% in its second weekend, Studiocanal’s The Sense Of An Ending took $176,000 (£137,542) for $949,000 (£739,826) so far and will hope to cross the £1m mark by the end of its run.

VERTIGO RELEASING

Ahead of Guardians 2, Vertigo Releasing’s James Gunn-scripted horror The Belko Experiment fought to a $167,000 (£129,942) UK debut from its 132 sites.

ARROW FILMS

From its 18 sites through Arrow Films, Clash grossed $19,000 (£14,856) on its UK opening, including previews.

MUNRO FILMS

Including previews, Munro Films’ Bunch Of Kunst posted a non-final UK debut of $13,000 (£10,506) from its 14 sites, all playing partial shows over the weekend.

UPCOMING RELEASES

This week sees saturation releases for Disney’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 and eOne’s The Promise.

Altitude’s Lady Macbeth and Universal’s Lowriders both receive a wide release, while Curzon Artificial Eye’s Heal The Living is among the films receiving a limited release.

 

As expected, BatB is near £69m, not £67m. The upcoming bank holiday weekend will likely mean it'll say more or less flat over the 4 days, so we can expect it to reach around £71m after this weekend, on its way to a mid £70s finish. Looks like it'll miss the $100m mark though. $95m total.

Boss baby to beat Fast this weekend? 

Probably be close but Fast 8 will likely take the number 2 spot. 50% drop gives it £1.8m v 35% drop and £1.3m for BB. Drops will likely be softer due to it being a holiday weekend.

 

What are you predicting for GotG2? Pre-sales are really strong from what I'm seeing, I wouldn't be surprised if it got into the teens for the 4-day Fri-Mon.

Absolutely no idea. It's definitely looking strong up front, but I can't get a gauge on where it's going.

At least £90, as me and 8 friends are going to watch it this Saturday evening! We're all uni students and the cinema we're going to is normally very quiet, but our Saturday evening showing is busier than normal. (Certainly not BatB-busy, but I would definitely say teens for 4-day are likely)
