well, well … looks as if it was rather the lack of new releases than the fear of Covid19 that kept theaters empty. Five domestic releases in the lead, the winner is one of those movies targeted at very young children and I have to say, it reached a number that I would consider satisfying even under pre-Corona conditions! The comedy Takeover otoh came in lower than I expected. Overall business is still poor but now we have a silver lining - people do still want to go to the movies.

Next weekend: Gretel and Hansel - doesn't seem that interesting, reviews are mixed. Semper Fi - I guess it's the Covid times or does this really warrant a theatrical release?! Harriet - maybe it can profit from the BLM trend, else I'd see little appeal. Scoob! - that seems like something with a lot of potential if it could get some WOM, only I don't know about marketing. Hope it doesn't bomb completely.

Our weekend looked ca. like that:
#1 Paw Patrol - Mighty Pups 35k admissions on Sunday (its day of release)
#2 Meine Freundin Conni - Geheimnis um Kater Mau 32.5k (down only ca. -10%)
#3 Scooby! Voll verwedelt 22.5k
#4 Takeover - Voll vertauscht 20k (also ca. -10%)
#5 Gretel & Hansel 20k

#6 Harriet 11.5k
...
Undine 10k
Die Känguru-Chroniken 10k
Das Beste kommt noch 5.5k

Compared to last weekend the top 10 increased by 33% (of course the increase would look better if Paw Patrol would have had the whole weekend – probably it will help in the future).
And by the way I already saw several TV-spots and online-advertisement for Unhinged with R. Crowe which is released here on Thursday.

Overall a slight upwards trend (seven releases >10k admissions, after five last weekend), family stuff and domestic releases still dominate the depressed market.

Next weekend: Radioactive and Unhinged - two bigger releases but it's a safe bet the family releases will stay on top. Evening shows are still a tough sell.

Hey, I was sure family stuff would stay on top but we have an "adult" #1 in Unhinged! Even if numbers are low (not a single three-digit PTA) that has to be a good sign. I hope.

Next weekend: Bio-Dramedy Our Current War would be a black horse at normal times but with a little starpower and numbers as low as they are, it might move up the charts. The same goes for Sports drama The Way Back - Basketball is steadily growing more popular, so who knows? Plus some documentaries, a domestic comedy, and a Polish medieval actioner (Krew Boga) from 2018, freshly dubbed - one of those titles that would have gone directly to streaming or DVD before Corona.

So Parasite out of top 20. It was looking very good for 10mn Euros, sad it mixed. How much Austria closed at?

Sadly, thanks to Corona, the Austrian Film Institute's website gets no updates atm. So no charts for now.

Releases for the very young are the only ones doing any business atm … overall, market is 80-90% down from last year.

Next weekend: The King od Staten Island, Le Prince Oublié, Mestari Cheng (a film by the lesser known Kaurismaki brother) … nothing really noteworthy; with the family releases trending maybe animal movie Cody: The Dog Days Are Over can attract some new customers.

Plus, with open air shows now in full swing, we might see some old releases back in the charts.

Family stuff continues to top the charts but look at those PTAs … the Finnish feelgood movie was the "biggest" opener. I'll keep this short, don't need tears all over my keyboard - so on to:

Next weekend: Since grown-up releases are still fighting an uphill battle, the biggest opener might be domestic kiddie book adaption Max und die Wilde 7.

As feared, a terrible weekend … family stuff doing a little business, not much else worth mentioning. In that context,  the >200k admissions for Meine Freundin Conni are a fine  success, I wouldn't have gauged that release much higher in pre-Corona times!

Next weekend: a LOT of releases but once more nothing I'd consider something to draw audiences back … maybe horror thriller The Wretched can attract some fans of the genre who must be rather hungry for new stuff by now!

Thanks to Corona, there are still no monthly charts from the Austrian Film Institute but at least, now there's the chart for the first half of the year, plus weekly numbers have returned:

https://filminstitut.at/film/kinocharts

 

It seems Austrian cinemas are faring quite a bit better than in Germany: With about 1/10th of Germany's inhabitants, Unhinged scored >3.000 admissions in Austria last weekend (and keep in mind, the Austrian weekend is Fri-Sun, compared to Germany's Thu-Sun). Ok, Unhinged was only in week2 here whike it was in week4 in Germany, but that's still a biiiig difference, total in Austria was already >12k after weekend 2; after Germany's weekend #2 it was only at 57k.

I Still Believe won the weekend with numbers that wouldn't look too bad on a normal summer weekend either. Other releases showed increases, especially family fare did rather well (once more). Still, we're 80-90% below "normal" business. No movie managed a three-digit PTA … Inception's re-release met with little interest.

Next weekend: No Escape, Tesla (is this a trend with those scientist/engineer biopics?), some more releases, plus the re-release of a popular domestic children's book adaption (Pumuckl) which might make it onto the Top3 under current market conditions.

The Sunday trend:
#1 I Still Believe 30k
#2 Paw Patrol - Mighty Pups 15k
#3 Max und die Wilde 7 15k
#4 Follow Me 13k 
#5 The Witch Next Door 11k
#6 The Secret 11k
#7 Meine Freundin Conni - Geheimnis um Kater Mau 11k

Ikn if the numbers for the other new releases and re-releases are just not available at the moment or if they had less than 11k admissions.
 
By the way, the presales for Tenet started on August the 12th (release date here is 26-8-20).

No news, PTAs continue to be extremely low. Thanks to little competition, holdovers manage to collect a steady trickle of admissions …

Next weekend: Tenet will be the first big release since the Covid crisis and we'll see how that works out. With seating restricted and people still reluctant to enjoy themselves indoors, we can't expect wonders, but I'd be happy with, say, 400k admissions in Germany until Sunday (plus 50-60k in Austria). That number would be enough (I hope) to encourage distributors to put more of their products on the big screens again.

and final total ?

well, that's a difficult one, as it depends very much on the quality / WOM of the movie ... but atm, with little competition and no sellouts thanks to reduced seating, I'd expect drops to be much softer than usual, so let's hope for a 5x multiplier.
