Regal Owner Cineworld Posts 7% Revenue Growth In 2018 Fueled By Strong U.S. Performance

Cineworld, the world’s second largest theater group, has released partial results for 2018 with highlights including revenue growth of 7.2% on a pro-forma basis and a record 308M cinema-goers.

According to the conglomerate, which last year completed its $3.6B acquisition of Regal Entertainment, admissions increased by 2.6% compared with the prior year. The firm put the growth down to a strong film slate in the U.S., refurbishments and the roll-out of premium formats. There were healthy rises in revenues for box office, concessions and screen advertising.

U.S. revenue grew by 8.6%, in part driven by a record year for the box office. Movies such as Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Incredibles 2 were among key drivers.

UK & Ireland revenue grew by 3% (-0.6% on a constant currency basis) with revenue growth impacted by the strength of the comparable film slate in 2017, particularly Star Wars. The highest grossing films for the year

Whoa! Keanu Reeves Suffers Career-Worst Box Office Opening With ‘Replicas’

Whoa! Keanu Reeves Suffers Career-Worst Box Office Opening With ‘Replicas’
Nearly 20 years after starring in “The Matrix,” Keanu Reeves has suffered the worst wide-release box office opening of his career with “Replicas,” a sci-fi film shunned by audiences and critics alike.

The sci-fi movie grossed a mere $2.5 million from 2,329 screens, falling below tracker projections for a $4-7 million launch and earning a per screen average of just $1,073.

It is the lowest opening for a film starring Reeves that opened on more than 1,000 screens. The last time he had a launch this low was all the way back in 1990 with the TriStar crime comedy “I Love You to Death,” which opened to $4 million.

2018’s Record Box Office: Highlights From The Overseas Profit Center & What’s Ahead For 2019 – Global Studio Chart

  • Deadline
With $41.66B worldwide, movie theater turnstiles spun to another record in 2018. Largely boosted by domestic receipts, the total includes a preliminary comScore estimate of $29.8B from the international box office. That’s also a record, though just a 1% increase on 2017 with some offshore markets stung by exchange rate fluctuations, homegrown movie performance, a hot summer and the World Cup. The overseas percentage may increase when actuals are tallied, but either way, execs and industry watchers remain bullish on the future.

Deadline finance sources estimate repatriated dollars are down approximately 6.3% across the Top 20 overseas hubs. Still, all six major studios are estimated to be profitable in 2018. Despite the plethora of alternatives and some roadbumps, there’s a sentiment that Hollywood business is thriving, and international is the key with 70% give-or-take of the movie business generated offshore. Ancillary markets are robust and there’s been an increase in studio cost-consciousness — think overseas

How Brad Bird Overcame Superhero Fatigue to Make ‘The Incredibles 2’
A version of this article about “The Incredibles 2” first appeared in the TheWrap magazine’s Oscar Nominations Preview issue.

Back in 2004, when Brad Bird’s Pixar smash “The Incredibles” came out, only one other film among the year’s Top 10 box office champions was a superhero movie: “Spider-Man 2,” the second-biggest movie of the year. But flash forward 14 years to the release of “The Incredibles 2” and you have a wildly different picture: Four of the movies in the Top 5 and six in the Top 10 are superhero flicks, with “Black Panther,” “The Avengers: Infinity War,” “Deadpool 2,” “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Venom” joining Bird’s film atop the charts.

“The landscape changed so radically between the first film and this one,” said Bird. “There were only a couple of superhero franchises that were active when we did the first film: Batman had gone dormant, Superman was on ice and Marvel

New Toy Story 4 Photo And Plot Details Tease What’s To Come

Even in this era where franchises are practically obligated to keep going until the magic is gone, many fans were surprised and disappointed to hear that Pixar was at work on Toy Story 4 after the third movie brought such poignant closure to the series. And while it’s likely that most of these detractors will be checking out the fourth installment anyway, you do have to wonder what stories are still left to tell for the old gang.

Fortunately, it seems we may have some fresh details on the movie courtesy of a new Russian calendar (which is proving to be a surprisingly informative source when it comes to upcoming Disney sequels). According to Instagram user mmdisney200, the calendar’s Toy Story 4 page has a synopsis that translates as follows:

Top 10 Box Office Predictions for 2019 (Photos)

2019 has just gotten started, and it’s looking like it could very well bring a box office as big as 2018. That’s thanks in large part to Disney, which is sporting six, yes Six films that could make a bid to earn over $1 billion worldwide this year. That’s why they dominate our predictions for the top 10 highest global grossing films of 2019, including the top five slots.

10.) “Spider-Man: Far From Home” (July 5) — Sony will get in on the Marvel Studios money train with this sequel to “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which made $880 million worldwide in 2017. With “The Lion King” hitting theaters two weeks after this film, it’s possible that “Far From Home” could see a smaller total figure due to the competition. What could counter that is if “Avengers: Endgame” leaves an intriguing narrative thread for the (currently dead) Peter Parker to pick up, creating more interest among fans to see

2019 Set To Be A Huge Year For The Walt Disney Company

Every year is a big year for The Walt Disney Company, but 2019 is set to be a particularly huge twelve months at the box office and beyond for the increasing inescapable House of the Mouse.

As you may know, the biggest Disney-related event of the year probably has nothing to do with new releases but is instead the conglomerate’s acquisition of Fox. But even before we find out what the studio plans to do with its new set of properties, Disney has some major franchise releases on the way. As a new report from The Motley Fool observes, a recent Fandango poll of 2019’s most anticipated film bodes very well for the company, with Disney’s Avengers: Endgame, Captain Marvel and Star Wars Episode IX proving to be the three most popular choices. Beyond that, the Top 10 contains four other movies owned by the studio, namely Toy Story 4 at number five,

Us: The Plot of Jordan Peele's Mysterious Thriller Is Vague but Incredibly Foreboding
It's been well over a year since Jordan Peele made his directorial debut with the critically acclaimed horror flick Get Out, and fans of the Oscar-winning director are hungry for more of his work. Peele has been committed to giving them exactly that - the filmmaker has multiple projects in progress, including a reboot of The Twilight Zone, producing a new HBO series, and a role in Toy Story 4.

The one project we've been on our toes waiting for is Peele's first feature since Get Out, "a new nightmare" simply titled Us. Peele announced the project in May 2018 by dropping the movie poster and release date on Twitter, with the star-studded cast confirmations - Lupita Nyong'o, Elisabeth Moss - following soon after. While details surrounding the plot of the film have been scarce since Peele's announcement, /Film revealed a synopsis sent out with recent test screening invites that gives

From Netflix to Nato: Who’s Poised to Win and Lose in 2019

It was a tumultuous year for an entertainment industry rocked by media shifts and adjusting to an unfamiliar post-Harvey landscape. Yes, the 2018 box office wound up well ahead of last year, but the future is not rosy for two-hour movies in theaters, as Silicon Valley streamers from Netflix to Apple make studio chiefs and their theater partners reach for the Maalox.

Here’s how last year’s winners and losers will play out in 2019.

Winners

Having bought Twentieth Century Fox, Disney will thrive as it prepares to stock three late-2019 Ott ventures to compete with Netflix. While Disney will be building its subscribers from scratch, quality IP from Disney, Pixar, Lucasfilm and National Geographic will “obviously create a demand and gives us the ability to not necessarily be in the volume game, but to be in the quality game,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger on an earnings call.
