Good start for Immortals. Pretty good for Apple of My Eye although it is slowing down now. Weak for Margin Call. Decent enough run and solid legs for In Time. 3 Idiots is a beast. It has already spent 7 weekends in the top 5 tying Sex & Zen for most weeks spent inside the top 5 this year and will break the record with another top 5 finish this weekend. Seediq Bale starts off well. With the 2nd one set to play in 2 weeks, this should do fairly well with its niche audience. Good number for Starry Starry Night. It might be able to drop less than 50% this weekend. Trespass did substandard numbers. Likewise for Killer Elite. While 50/50's subject matter isn't appealing, it managed strong sales in the arthouse theaters which is boosting its PSA. An exceptional start nonetheless.

Couple of squeakers with admissions. Immortals dethrones Apple after its 4 week reign. Apple put up a valiant fight but just could not catch Immortals. 3 Idiots manages to tip over Margin Call with its very strong Sunday. Margin Call really paled in admissions to the 2nd Wall Street (though that did benefit with a holiday), making just 39.1% that Wall Street 2 opened with last September. In Time is benefiting from no 2D screens of Immortals and lack of sci-fi action competition.

Decent for Immortals. Apple of My Eye blew past 7m and will finish with about 7.5m. Extremely disappointing for Margin Call. 3 Idiots continues its spectacular run. In Time is doing good. Starry Starry Night is having some strong legs. Terrible for Trespass. Excellent for 50/50. Killer Elite did poorly. Seediq Bale did pretty good. (BOM has it at $83,000 -- either way, Variety/BOM will probably fix itself out next week.)

Tintin disappointed big time. I'm not ready to call it a bomb just yet as it is only beginning its run but I'm sure Sony did not have this number in mind when they scheduled it this week. They thought this was a huge contender for the winter crown and the other distributors feared the worst as they dumped fluff movies or didn't bother trying to mute its gross with other high profile pics. Last week, we saw filler movies like Killer Elite, Trespass, Margin Call out and this week, it was a similar story with A Little Bit of Heaven, East Meets West 2011, Jump Ashin! and others all being released.

This year has been the story of great WOM movies with many movies turning in better legs than the norm. This week alone, we see You Are the Apple of My Eye, 3 Idiots, Seediq Bale 1, 50/50 and In Time to a lesser extent having good-great drops. It stands to reason that movies with great WOM are gripping the city and that unless you have something appealing, you aren't going to make a ton of money. Massive disappointment for Tintin and next week it goes up against Arthur Christmas.

You Are the Apple of My Eye is still doing fine. It is starting to slow down now but before it is all said and done, it will have passed the 7.5m barrier. Congrats to Immortals for going from decent opening weekend to disappointment in its 2nd weekend. Terrible week-to-week drop. Bad for East Meets West 2011. Eason will try again next week with Strawberry Cliff. 3 Idiots still holding on. Very good for Seediq Bale 1. I guess some theaters will try and do a double feature with Seediq Bale 1+2 next week. It's possible that people are waiting for both to come out to just watch it all at once. Maybe an increase for Seediq Bale 1 is in the cards? A Little Bit of Heaven did meh numbers. In Time is doing well. I am a bit surprised it hasn't fallen below 50% yet. Margin Call crashed. 50/50 posted a solid hold.

Sony has distributing rights in Hong Kong so they should be the distributor.Edit: Just found out that Tintin is being distributed by Intercontinental, which releases Paramount films. That is interesting. Other films in the past have been released by Sony so I don't know why Paramount would distribute when Sony actually has an office here.

Tintin's opening weekend admissions: 68,991

The Adventures of Tintin disappointed big but it rebounded slightly on the weekend. The Cantonese version showed considerable strength on Saturday/Sunday and surpassed Apple on Sunday as evidenced by its 22% Sunday jump. It doesn't minimize the poor opening weekend for Tintin though as it was expected to gross more than Immortals OW. After actuals come in, HK will be Asia's 2nd lowest grossing market for Tintin with Philippines and South Korea still to come. Good for Apple of My Eye. It has passed 7.3m and it will crawl past 7.5m with no real big movies coming out the next 2 weeks. Immortals had a horrible drop for a 3D film but this was pretty much expected with mixed WOM and poor ticket sales. 3 Idiots continues to impress and it will spend another weekend over $100,000.

Huge misfire for Sony/Paramount. Hindsight is 20/20 but they had a prime slot with the Christmas week opening and moving Tintin from there to end of November 24 was a magnificent blunder.

November 24 Weekend Estimates

1. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn - $391,000

2. You Are the Apple of My Eye - $207,500 (-42%)/$7,397,220

3. Immortals - $190,000 (-62%)/$848,000

4. East Meets West 2011 - $145,000

5. 3 Idiots - $112,500 (-5%)/$2,449,300

Thoughts:

Obviously the big weeks are the two weeks sandwiched in the middle. December 1 will be a fairly light week with Arthur Christmas presumably winning it. Warriors of the Rainbow Part 2 (and Part 1) will do fairly well now that Seediq Bale has took home some Golden Horse awards including Best Picture, Supporting Actor, Original Score and Audience Choice. December 8 is the calm before the storm with nothing really noteworthy coming out.

December 15 is the big weekend with Sherlock Holmes and Mission Impossible fighting it out. Right now, I would say Sherlock Holmes has the slight edge given Robert Downey Jr's bigger starpower from recent movies. Still, Tom Cruise is a huge draw here. The last MI film opened to over $2m in 2006 and Knight & Day opened to over $750,000 last summer. Those did not have formidable competition like Sherlock Holmes however. Sherlock Holmes opened to a hair below 1m 2 years ago on Christmas week...but that faced an unstoppable Avatar in its 2nd weekend. This time, it won't be the underdog. This weekend will rival that of the April 29, 2010 weekend when Ip Man 2 faced off against Iron Man 2 in the battle of the "Man" sequels. I predict that both movies will make a combined total of about 3.5m with Sherlock Holmes squeezing out the victory.

December 22 will be the other big week where all 4 openers are expected to contend for a place in the top 5. Breaking Dawn Part 1 will be the one with the best chance of leading the openers. It has steadily grown in OW with Eclipse opening to over $800,000 but its total has been pretty stagnant around the 2m mark. Alvin & The Chipmunks and Happy Feet 2 will march towards the last spot in the top 5. We cannot forget the new Jet Li movie coming out. That is a question mark at this point but it should do fairly well with no wuxia movies out since the summer. This weekend will probably break the 5m mark again with Sherlock Holmes and Mission Impossible holding well. We could see 6 movies gross more than $500,000 this weekend.

December 29 is not looking too bad with Turning Point 2 expected to win and War Horse to challenge. Speed Angels won't fare well and We Bought A Zoo should do OK numbers but is not gunning for #1.

No, that Tintin number is still below average. It is way below industry expectations.

Tintin fares a bit better but this OW is still below average. Industry watchers expected more from Tintin here. Apple of My Eye will pass 7.5m this upcoming weekend. Immortals jumped off a cliff. 3 Idiots has done extremely well and will pass 2.5m on its way to a possible 3m end. In Time is performing admirably. That is pretty poor for East Meets West although I think both BOM and Variety are not including Newport into their results. A Little Bit of Heaven didn't do good or bad. Starry Starry Night will pass $500,000 before its run is over and Seediq Bale 1 is doing well and might see another increase with Part 2 out this weekend and after its Golden Horse wins for Best Picture, Supporting Actor and Film Score.

Apple of My Eye is looking to scrape by with another week in the top 3. Tintin looked good for Thursday but the gain in admissions for the day is worrisome. Strong for Seediq Bale 2. 3 Idiots is still holding on in the top 5.

Upcoming

Posted Image vs. Posted Image

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol are both going to air special screenings across Hong Kong with night shows starting on December 14. Sherlock Holmes will start showing at 7 PM while Mission Impossible 4 looks to be leading off at 10 PM.

Advanced ticketing for both movies has been released and so far Sherlock Holmes 2 is outdoing Mission Impossible 4 in regular theaters after day 1. Mission Impossible 4, however, has the IMAX advantage and this is doing huge business with IMAX theaters already 15-40% filled with select primetime shows. Mission Impossible has also received the biggest screens over Sherlock Holmes. I guess theater owners are expecting MI4 to outgross SH2 but I think it will be a lot closer than they think.

Breaking Dawn Part 1: Why the Twilight series never pays off at Christmas

If you've ever payed attention to the international release dates for the Twilight series, you may have noticed one oddity about it. Every winter Twilight release has seen a release close to Christmas in Hong Kong. It's a strategic move that Summit/Golden Scene (HK distributor) considers to be safe and most reliable. I mean what movie could go wrong with a release around Christmas? If there was ever a movie wrong for Christmas though, it would be the Twilight series.

Let's recap.

1. None of the Twilight movies has ever spent a week at #1.

In the 3 previous installments, all 3 of them debuted at #2 and fell off soon after. This brings me to my next point...

2. Holiday release date means more competition. More competition means less chance of getting big bucks and the coveted ranking.

All 3 previous Twilight movies got their start on a holiday weekend or the weekend before a holiday. The first Twilight movie opened alongside Ip Man and Madagascar 2 and then faced Suspect X on Christmas. New Moon went up against Avatar and that was that. Eclipse battled Shrek 4 and lost. Breaking Dawn Part 1 is not only challenged by Flying Swords of Dragon Gate, A&C3, HF2 its opening weekend but it will also have to contend with the 2nd weekends of heavy-hitters Sherlock Holmes 2 & Mission Impossible 4. (As we have seen in past Christmases, movies released the weekend before Christmas will see a 2nd weekend increase.) Had the 3 Twilight films moved around from their scheduled weekends, I'm sure they would have done more business and ranked #1.

3. Late release date means potentially less revenue.

We've all heard about the piracy in China. What is stopping people from downloading it when the movie is already out 1 month elsewhere before it comes to Hong Kong? We've already seen what happens when you release a movie later in some parts of the world. Your total decreases from the predecessor. (New Moon dived below 2m after going head-to-head with Avatar.) With Breaking Dawn facing some tough opponents, odds are this release will go back down below 2m.

4. Christmas and romance dramas don't mix.

I'm sorry but whoever thought Christmas and vampires/werewolves is a good idea is sorely mistaken. People want to see action or kids movies not romance drama movies. While Twilight opened bigger than Madagascar 2, in the end, Madagascar 2 finished ahead of Twilight in total gross. It also lost to Ip Man OW, one of the breakout hits that holiday season. The other 2 were handily beaten by other openers the same week.

5. The Twilight series has gotten bigger OWs with each release.

It may not have gotten more frontloaded with each release but its OW is still something to note. It went from $490k -> $769k -> $815k (summer). Unfortunately, BD1 still has a lot of competition on its plate and I'm unsure if BD1 is going to rise in OW again especially if we see great holds from SH2 and MI4. With the OW becoming more crucial for Twilight, why release it with a host of other films expected to generate fairly good to amazing business?

Breaking Dawn Part 1 is one movie where they could have learnt from past mistakes. Instead, they just opt for the safe and predictable play. The most ideal release date would have been December 1. It would have opened 2 weeks after the US and be free from any major releases. If they were that scared of Tintin, December 1 would have been a good choice especially with it 2 weeks away from the SH2/MI4 duo and some demand for Tintin already gone.

What does this mean for Breaking Dawn Part 2? Who knows, although most likely they will schedule this the week before Christmas and then it will share its release date with The Hobbit. Book it.

3 Idiots: End date coming soon?

It's been pretty incredible watching 3 Idiots run since September 1. No one could have imagined such a historical run with it capturing over 2.5m and possibly toying with 3m. That being said, the magical run will end soon but when will this happen? December 1 is already looking pretty good with a Thursday admissions increase but the weekend might see another small dip. December 8 is looking bare so 3 Idiots will continue to play strongly up until the December 15 weekend. This will be very key for 3 Idiots. If it can escape with a 55-60% drop that weekend (in line with other great WOM movies' drops), that should be enough to get theater owners to keep it for Christmas week. Holiday + long movie means big increase. If it can survive that Dec. 15 weekend, we could be looking at another weekend over $100,000...possibly pushing $150,000 even with so many other movies coming out. December 29 should still be pretty good for 3 Idiots but unfortunately that is where I think it's run will end. My Name is Khan is opening first weekend of January and we have seen from theaters before with other foreign language releases that if a newer movie is opening, they will cut the previous movie to make room for it.

Edit: Actuals have come out.

December 1 Weekend Estimates

1. The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn - $320,000 (-35%)/$966,470

2. Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale (Part 2) - $120,000

3. You Are the Apple of My Eye - $110,000 (-48%)/$7,607,360

4/5. Magic to Win/Seediq Bale (Part 1) - $85,000 (-4% for Seediq Bale 1)

* The Rum Diary - $75,000

* 3 Idiots - $80,700 (-26%)/$2,565,046

Tintin had a pretty good hold. It looks like it will turn out to be a marginal disappointment. Seediq Bale Part 2 benefited strongly from the first film plus Golden Horse awards. Apple of My Eye will most likely not catch Kung Fu Hustle for #1 local film of all time. Magic to Win and Part 1 of Seediq Bale will be very close, I think. #2-#5 are all interchangeable at this point with no guarantees except for Tintin winning this weekend. The Rum Diary did pretty well for only going semi-wide.

Kung Fu Hustle 2 is supposedly getting a 2012 release. Stay tuned to this developing story. (Updated poll to reflect this new development.)

Ok for Tintin but it needed to drop better to pass 1.5m. It's looking unlikely now and it will probably finish with 1.2-1.3m. Disappointing run here. That number for Part 2 of Seediq Bale looks incredibly off. Did they combine the grosses for the two parts into one? Magic to Win opened decently. Apple of My Eye is not going to pass Kung Fu Hustle or Shaolin Soccer. It will need a miracle with the slashing of screens/showtimes left, right and center next week. Currently, it sits at $59.5m HKD and is $1.2m behind Shaolin Soccer but Apple will finish its run with $60m banked. Arthur Christmas bombed but it was expected. Tintin was a much higher profile release than this and this one had little hope considering Tintin only managed a $500,000 opening weekend. Rum Diary opens strongly. Although it is slowing down now, 3 Idiots currently sits 14th overall for the year. Phantom of the Opera impressed. It did get the optimum showtime (1 showtime per day) but because of its over 3 hr length, it is a very good opening weekend for a special feature. Strawberry Cliff performed respectably. In Time is the forgotten success story.

Good for Magic to Win. White Vengeance topping the admissions and finishing 2nd in gross is a pleasant surprise. Tintin has dropped fairly hard for an animation release. It will finish with 1.2-1.3m. Apple of My Eye is going to finish behind Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer for highest grossing local film of all time. 3 Idiots sits at #14 overall for the year. Seediq Bale Part 2 is doing ok but not great. Rum Diary had a strong opening weekend and will finish with more than $200,000. Nutcracker's fall from admissions seems about right. I had doubts that it finished #2 in admissions when it was being beaten by nearly every other release. Seediq Bale Part 1 will finish higher than Part 2.

Bring on next week, please. (As a sidenote, do you know Hong Kong is the only territory that will pit Sherlock Holmes and Mission Impossible against each other on the same day?)

I can tell you that 3 Idiots came in at #1 on Friday and is #1 in admissions for the weekend. Tintin might sneak out a 3rd weekend at #1 in gross.

Now to the good stuff. First off, a look at the busiest theater in Hong Kong, Langham Place.

Besides a slight gain on Sunday for Mission Impossible 4, it is still well behind Sherlock Holmes 2. The most shocking thing is that is still losing to Sherlock Holmes on its opening day (Thursday). The two benefits that I see for Mission Impossible are that this has been given the biggest screens on Thursday/Friday everywhere and it also has IMAX to bridge the gap. With bigger screens, it should be able to make up some ground on Sherlock Holmes 2 especially if theaters only give Holmes 2 screens. Inflated prices in IMAX will help immensely especially with the movie being marketed for IMAX screens.

Now, we head over to The ONE. Will Mission Impossible 4 fare better here?

Similar story here. Aside from the opening day flurry for Mission Impossible, it looks to be a Sherlock Holmes victory. The two most telling points here are Friday and Saturday's data. On Friday, The ONE has (so far) scheduled Sherlock in the smaller of the 2 different size screens with pretty good results. It not only defeats Mission Impossible on a day-to-day comparison but it remains competitive in the peak showtimes as well. Saturday, meanwhile, sees Sherlock doubling Mission Impossible's admissions with 1 extra showtime. Now, you could say that because of the extra showtime for SH2, it will obviously have more admissions. That is true as we get closer to the showtimes themselves but if Mission Impossible was equal to Sherlock Holmes at this early stage, they would have more admissions on other days (Friday, Sunday) but this doesn't seem to be the case. In reality, Mission Impossible is losing to Sherlock Holmes at this theater.

Most of the other theaters are in line with these results with a couple of outliers. Those outliers, however, are not enough to make up what should be a huge lead for Sherlock Holmes.

I'll be back with another update on Wednesday.
