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;

- Musical adaptations are more popular than ever, with David Bowie’s story topping the list of icons we’d next like to see at the cinema
- 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 Grindelwald, Deadpool 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):

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.
