Latest Bond Film Leads Quiet Marketplace
A long-awaited Hollywood topped the charts and gave the market a 30% boost, but admissions remained low with 623,000 tickets sold over the weekend. With no major new local releases for several weeks, the domestic market share was down to 26%.
Following several pandemic delays, No Time to Die, the final Daniel Craig-fronted film in the long-running James Bond series, easily scored a top place debut, selling 384,000 tickets (USD 3.31 million) over the weekend, with 564,000 entries (USD 4.57 million) recorded over its first five days.
After two weeks in the first place, On the Line dropped to second, slowing 50%. The local thriller added 91,000 viewers (USD 773,000) over the frame, raising its total to 1.12 million admissions (USD 9.35 million).
The family-themed drama Miracle: Letters to the President was also down one spot and 44% as it added 45,000 sales (USD 364,000), boosting its total to 533,000 admissions (USD 4.24 million).
In fourth place, Marvel title Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings lost just over two-thirds of its audience as it nears the end of its run. The film filled 19,000 seats (USD 169,000) over the weekend, with 1.71 million tickets (USD 14.69 million) sold to date.
Closing out the top five was the Japanese animation Belle: The Dragon and the Freckled Princess with 15,000 viewers (USD 130,000) over the weekend and 22,000 (USD 181,000) entries since its Wednesday debut.
Bond should have little trouble hanging on the top spot this coming weekend, which was also welcome the local mental illness-themed drama F20.
