The week’s two big movie releases also topped the German charts. But it is a very close race between “Aladdin” and “John Wick: Chapter 3” …
Last week, “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” was in the gold rank of German cinema charts, closely followed by “Avengers: Endgame.” But two reboots have now overtaken both: According to early estimates, there are the actual Disney movie “Aladdin” and “John Wick: Chapter 3”.
But the race is very close. So close, in fact, that it’s unclear which of the two prevailed this weekend. Noisy Focus: film “Aladdin” is ahead of the game with 290,000 viewers (Disney itself reports 289,000), with “John Wick 3” running just millimeters after the imaginative fairy tale over the finish line (285,000). Only the final numbers on Tuesday afternoon will likely show who has truly conquered the top of the movie charts. By the way, both films suffered from the very good weather of the weekend, so the figures remain below the 300,000 to 400,000 viewers expected at the beginning.
By the way, for “John Wick 3” it is the best start of part of the action series so far. “John Wick” reached around 140,000 visitors at the beginning, “John Wick 2” already 230,000 visitors.
“Avengers Endgame” only in fourth place
The order of the previous week remains the same for the other places in the top 5. In the bronze rank appears “Pokémon Master Detective Pikachu” (approx. 140,000), followed by “Avengers: Endgame” (110,000) and comedy “Glam Girls – Ravishingly Corrupted” (70,000) with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. The first German film is only in sixth place, around 30,000 visitors bought a ticket for “Der Fall Collini”.
It will also be exciting to see which films can secure the top positions in the German cinema charts next week. Among other things, a huge box office success begins with “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” and with the Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” a title that likes to follow in the footsteps of the extremely successful “Bohemian Rhapsody” (3 , 5 million visitors). would kick.
