Chart Chat: ‘Juvana 2’ Still Going Strong, ‘Spectre’ Dominates

by The Daily SeniNovember 12, 2015

ANOTHER week at the movies, and we have five local titles generating money this week in cinemas nationwide!

Two weeks in, Juvana 2 remains in the Top 10, experiencing only a slight slip (down one spot to #7). The sequel to the groundbreaking 2013 action film still has 59 prints in circulation.


Juvana 2 holds steady at the box office!

Making its debut in cinemas last weekend, Juvana 2 has already grossed more than RM750,000. Will the second installment surpass the ticket sales of the first one? We doubt it, but we think it’s actually holding up pretty well!

Opening this week, Mirip — directed by Indian national Jokin — is a musical thriller. The film debuts at #17 with 49 prints this week.

Polis Evo, our highest-grossing local film of all time, falls 14 spots this week from #7 to #21 with RM14,500 over the weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. Ghaz Abu Bakar‘s masterpiece has been in cinemas nationwide for over 2 months and will finally make an exit in the coming week or two.

Love, Supermoon starring Farid Kamil and Nadiya Nisaa exits the Top 20 this week, down eight spots to #25. It is currently in its third week and has only 6 prints in circulation. As of 6 November, the National Film Development Corporation Malaysia (FINAS) reports that the film has so far made RM244,560.93.

Although reviews have been strongly positive (film historian Hassan Muthalib and author Mamu Vies highly recommend it) Love, Supermoon is the weakest performer of Grand Brilliance‘s three big releases this year, all of which underperformed. Virginia Kennedy‘s Girfriend Kontrak was the biggest of the lot, finishing with RM693,762.00 while Shamyl Othman‘s Rembat amassed 325,496.89,

Local Tamil thriller Iravan meanwhile sits at #29 with only two prints remaining. The film, set in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, is directed by and starring the multi talented Kash Villainz himself.


A bearded Vin Diesel, anyone?

Last week’s headliner The Last Witch Hunter is down to #3 this week. The action packed film which stars Vin Diesel as an immortal witch-hunter still has 112 prints this week.

Hotel Transylvania 2 has been surviving in cinemas for almost two months now. Holding the #22 position this week, the film has already made more than RM10,000,000 at the local box office and over RM706,000,000 worldwide!

This week’s number #1 film is none other than the latest installment of the Bond series, Spectre.

Spectre has been receiving pretty promising reviews though it still lacks the acclaim that went to its predecessor, Skyfall. The film made more than ten million ringgit over the weekend: time to join the rest and block one of these nights for an action packed night at the cinema, folks!

Look out for next week when Sandosh Kesavan‘s Biasan makes its debut in the chart… or will it?
