Meerkat Movies has launched its annual cinema report,  revealing the habits of UK cinema goers from the past year, whilst highlighting key opinions from the cinema-going British public, with key findings including;

  • UK cinemas saw the highest attendance levels for almost 50 years in 2018, with a 3.7% year-on-year increase

  • 75% of consumers polled say they feel James Bond should remain as a male lead
  • When movie fans were asked what films they would most like to see a sequel to, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of GrindelwaldDeadpool 2 and Avengers: Infinity War came in as the top three
  • Breakdown of the most popular movie by month in 2018 (according to Meerkat Movies redemption data):

January The Greatest Showman

May Avengers: Infinity War
June Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

 I find this pretty interesting in terms of what most people went to see at the cinema during 2018! The only two films I did not see at the cinema from that monthly list were Peter Rabbit and The Nun.

What are your thoughts on this annual report?

What do you want from 2019 at the cinema?

  1. The Nun? That’s a bit of a surprise! I’m the same – didn’t see that or Peter Rabbit. I think I’m pretty well sorted for 2019 cinema, with something ridiculous like 12 super hero movies 🙂 If they could just put something half-decent on over the next couple of weeks, though…!
