  1. I’m not too familiar with box office figures, so forgive me for asking, but are these numbers good or bad?

  2. PS, I’ve noticed ‘Sket’ opened in 66 cinemas and grossed £70,299, while Demons Never Die opened in 121 cinemas and have only made £29,464. Interesting.

  3. So, by my rough maths, over 3 days, Demons managed on average £243 per cinema. Say £7 per ticket, that’s around 35 people. In other words, on average, in each of the 121 cinemas, around 12 people per day went to see Demon Never Dies.

  4. ahahahahahahahaha you’ve made my day with this post. I’m so happy these flopped after the cinemas in the UK tried to mess up the Lover’s Rock film, a postive black film.

  5. wow this might mean no more urban films at all since they always like churning the same old stereotypical narratives. Unless “Top Boy” the movie comes out one day or something like that.

  6. Oh wow these figures are poor ! Does anyone know if they broke even?
    Happy that this highlights the need for change. Moving on…….

  7. It is bad. Very, very bad for a movie to gross a TOTALLY pathetic amount of £29 000 or even £70 000! That’s beyond disastrous!

    Look at it this way, the actors need to be paid. The director, producer, writer, music supervisor,production designer,costume designer,the drivers (who’ll ferry the equipment from here to there), editor etc etc. THEY ALL NEED TO BE PAID! Let’s not even go there with finances regarding the promotion of the movie.

  8. Melissa :I think the riots showed that the key audience for these movies have no money!!!

    lol at Melissa. I couldn’t have put it better myself
