BO Germany/Austria: H ouse of Gucci wins Covid-depressed weekend

Recommended Posts

A cheap R-rated Hänsel And Gretel outgrossing a Disney tentpole.

Yep, H&G is a success story here. In Austria, it's been #1 for 3 weeks straight.

But my real showstopper of 2013, until now, is Django Unchained. It's a western, it's Tarantino - and yet it keeps on selling tickets week after week. More than 4,1 million admissions in Germanyby now, more than 530k in Austria - stunning, nearly as surprising a run as last year's Intouchables.

Jamie Foxxx may not been much bettern known than Omar Sy, but Leonardo diCaprio is.

Quentin movies are financed through the Weinsteins. How in the hell Sony got the distribution right in Europe????

All that moolah, $400 million of it, too bad, Weinsteins have to split it with these players...

Today is opening day for "The Croods", and at least at my theater, business is really slow. Like, it's selling less seats in 5 shows than co-opening french productions "De l'autre côté du périph" and "Un plan parfait" which each have only one preview evening show before they go wide tomorrow. Of course, Croods are family material, so wait for the weekend, but awareness seems to be about zero.

Because they co-financed it and got the international rights as part of the deal. The Weinsteins don't have a major studio backing them--a $100 million budget is too rich for their blood. They did the same thing with Basterds (with Universal instead of Columbia) and that "only" cost $70m. And TWC has no presence in most countries, so even if they financed the whole thing themselves, they still would've had to sell foreign distribution rights.

Saturday trend for Germany's weekend:

#1: Croods: somewhere between 325k and 400k admissions

#2: Oz. 140k (<30% drop, holidays kicking in)

#3: Ostwind: 100k

#4: H&G: 90k

French productions "De l'autre côté du périph" and "Un plan parfait" on #5 and #6

 

Decent opening for Croods, in any case better than HTTYD back in 2010. With this opening and school holidays in full swing, 2mil admissions should be easily attainable (HTTYD managed a 5.5 multiplier)

13 10 Safe Haven Senator/Const. $ 478.097 -33,1 3.279.891 3

All five (semi-)wide openers made it into my list, The Croods with a decent opening. DU and Night Train to Lisbon again with fine drops, DU still in the Top10 after 10 weeks in release!

With only one major opener for the Easter weekend - G.I. Joe 2 - and holidays in full swing, drops should be very good for most films, so we're looking towards another good, if not record-shattering, weekend!

Friday trend: GIJoe2 with a narrow lead, Croods with no drop at all, Identity Thief manages #3. That's very good for both openers, GIJoe2 will nearly make in weekend 1 what GIJoe1 did in its entire run.

Depending on weather and frontloadedness for GIJoe2, Croods might turn out the winner for the weekend.

Saturdaytrend for Germany weekend:

Croods: 350k admissions

GIJ2: 350k

Id.Th.: 190k

Oz: 100k

Ostwind: 85k

H&G: 80k

 

will be really close for #1 bit since weather is bad overall - which pushes afternoon business - I guess Croods will be in front.

10 11 Kokowääh 2 WB $ 544.676 -4,2 25.786.997 8

Due to lazy holiday reports, only a Top10 list this week. The openers did ok but the story here are the drops and even rises - DU on #7 in week 11, and Croods with an increase after opening to #1 last week!

There is a bunch of openers next weekends, none of which is expected to set the BO on fire - Beautiful Creatures, Dead Man Down, Burt Wonderstone, danish thriller The Hunt and norwegian semi-history-doc Kon-Tiki. With holidays over and better weather on the horizon, there should be some harsh drops, but from a very satisfying level.

thanks, hadn't noticed!

9 million admissions is a rare feat indeed ... it's only the 9th film since 2000 that made it this far!

Since 2000, most admissions:

HP - Sorcerer's Stone (12,6mil)

LotR - Fellowship (11,8mil)

Der Schuh des Manitu (11,7mil)

Avatar (11,3mil)

Lotr - TwoTowers (10,7)

Lotr - Return (10,4)

HP - ChamberofSecrets (9,7mil)

Traumschiff Surprise (9,2mil)

Intouchables (9,0mil)

 

And atm I don't see the next contender for the triple-golden-screen anywhere; but no one had Intouchables on the radar either so let's hope for a surprise!

#6 as yet unclear between Kokowääh2, NightTrainToLisbon and best opener BeautifulCreatures ... really horrible for the openers, but some excellent holds elsewhere!
