Was great to see the car park so busy yesterday. 
 

Spiral was good, earned its 18 rating, yikes! 
 

Had a great first experience back. Recliners, large icee, quiet audience with appropriate laughs, “eeewws” and jumps.

That’s grim for Mortal Kombat and especially Those Who Wish Me Dead. 
 

Solid for The Unholy and Spiral, all things considered. 
 

Nomadland is available for free on Disney+ here. Big gross for Peter Rabbit on a non holiday Monday. 
 

note: no Cineworld locations were opened on Monday. They open today.

Box office up 41% from Tuesday and 9% from Monday in the UK yesterday after Cineworld opened its 120 locations. 
 

Peter Rabbit has grossed $850k so far. Total gross for cinemas first 3 days back is $2.83m. (Source: deadline)

 

* note the Deadline article says 50% capacity. That’s incorrect. With social distancing rules in Scotland, it’s about 20% per screen as 3 seats on either side have to be left between every household. Therefore if one person buys a seat in the middle of the row, the row is basically gone.

Solid crowd when I went to see Judas and the Black Messiah last night, still don't understand how my cinema ballsed up so bad having more than half the screens out of action when we're one of the busiest in the country.

99% sure we're going to get some pretty good numbers this weekend if my local is anything to go by. You can't get a Peter Rabbit seat for love nor money. 


Hopefully we do get some decent numbers for the first week back! 
 

$6.4m UK opening week (7 full days) for Peter Rabbit 2 apparently.

Cineworld sound pretty happy with their opening, hopefully this is a good sign for the coming weeks. 2 big releases and a popular niche release this weekend, another big one next weekend. I'm feeling good about summer BO here.


Me too, that article says Peter Rabbit 2 grossed $2.5m of its $6.4m on Saturday alone. 
 

The Conjuring 3 is selling well too, I was supposed to see a preview tomorrow but I’m now going on Saturday night.

Dates should read 17th May instead of 21st. 7 day totals. 
 

So glad we’re back. Peter Rabbit and Cruella have no family competition until July too. 
 

Hoping both The Conjuring 3 and A Quiet Place 2 can do well. Solid starts for Spiral and The Unholy but I noticed The Unholy finishes at a lot of cinemas on Thursday.

UK Box office reporting. 😐

 

I think Screendaily report FSS numbers too. Almost all other films other than PR did half of their business in FSS while PR 2 did 80%.

Demon Slayer is selling really well in Odeon. I checked 5 random screens + BFI IMAX. They all are 70% or so, unless I am reading it wrong. £1M weekend should be done easily.
